Kewl,i beleive thers other bookings already when i spoke to them earlier ..... :)

Should be good.All of us in close to everything.Southport is a realy nice place to visit.Theyve spent tens of Millions on reconstruction and Modernisation.Quite a trendy area,with some old worldly,quirky place to visit.Not at all a Typical seaside town.
Thers a large amount of large open space in Southport.Its not all sand.Thers some big open green areas also.Big on water sports.Marine Lake has Yatch club and Water skiers.Its certainly a popular Golf area.Naturalist Paradise.Bird Watching Heaven.

Southport has a very large beech.Easy walking distance from the Guesthouses.The sand ther tends to be Tacky,sticky.A little like Mud almost.Ther are better green areas that i would prefare to use if i was ther flying.
Ainsdale which is 4 mile away,is completely diffrent.Fine sand with dunes.The beech is Miles long and very,very wide.The tide leaves pools that are great to fly over or use as obsticles and tests of nerve.Ther only ankle deep though.When the wind blows out to sea,its a treat to showboat skimming waves.We love Ainsdale to fly at and respect the area.Have a great relationship with the Wardens and other users of the beech.Thers a regular bunch that come and watch us now.I think weve become an Attraction without actually realising it.Weird somtimes when ya turn around and thers folk videoing and clicking away at ya.
Ther can be as many as Fifty Power kiters,20 blow carts and other flyers sometimes at weekends.Dont worry though.thers MASSES of room for everyone.Room has never even been a thought,consideration.Even in high summer.The Big Kites[best way to put it]have a beech area of ther own and dont encroach on the Best side or our bit[miles of our bit]

The lads up here are quite excited about the Gathering.I hope they can consentrate at Tomorrows team Practice.

Try the one below for Camping.I have been ther a few times with the Caravan.Its very close to the beech[easy walk]and on a good link to all the main areas.
The site itself is spotless.Cleanest Wash areas ive ever used on a touring site.

Nice one Bri. Thanks for all the effort you have put into this. If pleasure out bears any correlation to effort in, we are in for a great weekend, I'm really looking forward to it, in spite of what Gary says about the local delicacy. ;)

Just a suggestion, how about you edit in a list of those attending, into your opening post, in the same way John does in Global Rev Count, I know it means extra work and I would be happy to do it but the first post is yours and I obviously canít access it, you can.

Thanks again, Great Job.

Hear hear - just what Bri said

By 8:30am the mist melted away and we had 2 mph early doors building to 10 mph by 10:30 am - due westerly, straight off the Irish Sea - absolutely sweeeeeet - can there be a smoother wind in the UK?

Well done Bri for organising the "It's not that grim up norf rev gathering". Looking forward to it so much I MIGHT even buy a new hat.
