As a few of you know, the SKF are planning a Better Flying Day, provisionally for either the 1st or 2nd weekend of October down here at Stokes Bay. The aim being to help or be helped with your flying and to maybe experience other types of flying (single or dual etc..). All are invited
I also thought it'd be a good opportunity to invite any flyers from around the southern UK to join the SKF. Not only does being a member help to promote kite flying, and help towards keeping the Southampton Kite festival running, but there are plenty of wise heads to get advice from, and it also means that you are covered by their 3rd party insurance when flying out and about in public areas...
Membership is currently £15 for family or £10 for individuals and runs from October for 12 months. However, if you join now, your membership will run through until Oct 2010.
Please contact Mike Lowe via e-mail; firstname.lastname@example.org and the website is Solent Kite Flyers
As for Stokes Bay! Well, today was a bit light on wind, and I have to say I really couldn't get it together... Still quite a bit of fun was had by Martine, Sanja, Mr Jones (And eventually his family), Jeremy, Winston, Les and Les Snr. And seeing Colin from the SKF's antique and immaculate REV's was interesting. A Backtracker and a couple of BRIGHT (I mean Miami Vice bright!) EXP's of the same vintage. It even had the price sticker on it still!!!!
Hopefully things (wind wise) will be better next Sunday and we can get a few of us together again for a pre-Portsmouth firball.
