Well, that was interesting...

Great wind, pity there was precious little room to use it in :angry: And add to that the public having to walk through there too :argue:



Condolences to the family of the flyer who died (the reason everything shut down like that).
No problems getting it up - It's using it properly that's the problem!

Eh???

Just to clarify, very sadly one of the invited single line fliers had a heart attack on the field. I know little details but the paramedics were unable to revive him.

As a result of this the festival closed early. More details will be posted later and when appropriate.

Sorry, should have put a little more on my post...

As mentioned, one of the invited single liners (with BIG kites) was taken ill late in the day. there was no big commotion, and things shut down slowly and earlier in respect.

As far as I'm aware, the festival goes on as per, although (hopefully?) there may be something done in tribute/respect for the the flyer involved.

There was no great number of fliers but we did the 16 JMH Decorators kites on Saturday. It looked very good and I hope that images will be available somewhere. [Edit] I just remembered that the 'performance' was with music and many of the moves were 'in time.'

On Monday 20 flew together before most fliers had to travel home. Two interlinked rings were flown. I seem to remember that there was discussion about five interlinked rings previously. (2012 event/100 team?) <grins>

The flier was someone the Decs have 'shared' field space with for as long as I can remember...

Your sentiments, I think, are appropriate.

Not sure on the final (informal fly) number from today - but one of the figures was just for you and TK. Only problem is, as we were all flying, I'm not sure if there'll be a picture to share......

Well noted! I really hope that someone captured that.

On an aside, the Ethiopian restaurant in Southsea was brilliant. Having eaten at the one in Goldhawk Road near Shepherds Bush in London some time back I was keen to try it. Fortunately, everywhere else was full last night so the team mates and friends did not need too much arm twisting to try it...

Top of our list for next year...

My son was not in the Megafly (he's been nicknamed Dangerous for a reason!) so he took some photos. Will post as soon as I've sorted them out.

Well noted! I really hope that someone captured that.
