I just thought it a touch ironic to be taking the kids along to a kite festival dedicated to stopping child labour :)

Have fun y'all and take some water with the Guiness, Mr T

The Decs attended an event back in 1992 (Romney tells me). It was in the field at the back of what is now IMMA.

It was notable for Johnny discovering thistles on the field as he was dragged about by a stack of JMH designed Flexifoils (I think)

Later, Paul Jobin introduced some of the team to Tequila Slammers in a bar close to St. Steven's Green as I recall.

Enjoy the weekend. We look forward to hearing about it.

Maybe they have short memories unlike Romney...

I do remember going to Dublin not least because I left a pair of good shoes in the B+B.

We had a great time in Ireland and met some great local fliers. Many thanks to Chris and Connor especially for making us feel so welcome.

It was super light winds all weekend with the occasional bit of downwards blowing winds so we had a good chance to try the new printed SUL sails. These kites just keep impressing me. They feel so alive even in 2mph down. We used Race rods and didn't even need to drop down to the 50lb lines to make them fly. It would have been a great place to fly the team Blasts but we just did not have the weight allowance on the plane to take all the gear.

There are a few Rev fliers in Ireland but they all seem to be spread around a lot and so it is unusual to have someone else to fly with. Now they have tasted team flying I wonder if they will try and get together more often.

A big thank you to the organisers and The Kite Society for arranging a great event. Let's hope that it runs again next year!

ps, here's a shot of the new kites all lined up and ready for battle. :wub:

haha, love your new icon Stephen :-)

Oh, and don't forget to mention we worked Luca really hard over the weekend.. even sending him on a mission to the Red Bull car to get in supplies for the team! :P and acting as 'lookout' at the airport (when they wouldn't let him in the bar area that we erm, occupied for over an hour while waiting for our transport!) Child labour, ha!

Fantastic event! I would love to go back (now that my muscles have recovered) but forget the Red Bull* mini, where was the Guinness Truck?
