I'm not so sure Bob. It seems a perfectly achievable target IMHO.

Hola Fernan

Really going to miss you guys not coming over for this festival.

The only webcam I can find is pointing at the big pointy Spinnaker tower away from the festival site :blue-confused:

Thank you for thinking of us.
Hope you've had a great summer flying season. :D

I'll be picking up both Blue and Red when I get there - which makes purple LOL
No problems getting it up - It's using it properly that's the problem!

Many thanks for the information, I hope enjoy much.
In September, we travel to festival in Marsella, in octuber a local festival, Vitoria.
The spectacular summer, much sun and wind, a pleasure to fly on the beaches of the Basque country, our House.

Hello all
Just checked the weather

<snip>


http://www.metcheck....r...mouth&day=3

seems to be a gloomy view for Sunday currently.

I just cycled over to Blackheath to check out the climate camp. They are at the west end of the Heath far away from the Church field where we usually fly.

(That hill up through Greenwich park to the observatory certainly got my heart rate up today quite apart from the steps up the foot tunnel...)

Whilst on a collection today I encountered a “blast from the past” in a convenience store and bought a box of 4doz. so come and say “hi” and have another taste of your childhood. Offer only available while stocks last.

Been on Portsmouth common most of the day
met up with mike (mr git) but he had to go off to work
then a bunch of single liners turned up flying either side of me
they had been approached to put some kites up for the BBC
apparently it will be shown tomorrow night at 6:30pm
you may see me trying to fly my rev in the middle
hope to see some of you tomorrow

Yea!! What excellent conditions they were. I could do everything (Mid-vent with race's in) I normally struggle with at Stokes Bay...
Great to meet Baz and collect my new handles (the RED are GORGEOUS!!!). Would loved to have stayed and flown some more (off camera :) )

Shame I got the call to work, and then I didn't finish until 8pm :( so no more playing today.
No problems getting it up - It's using it properly that's the problem!
