PLEASE NOTE,Dates have been Revised,to Sat 21st/Sun 22nd
Hello sports fans.
As some are now aware.Ther has been some rumblings about a gethering again this year of Rev flyers .NOT AN EVENT,,,,,Gathering
The Gathering at Dunstable a few years ago was a realy kewl idea and one we should try and do more often outa season.Its a long wait until next years calendar starts and we all get together.Thats if we arent spread all over the globe doing events and our own thing.Winters are a pain over here.Long and depressing at times.but it does give us a chance to get it on.With some of the Top guys in our sport free to help and teach[pritty please].Who would be doing events and stuff in summer.
The Dunstable gathering realy helped many people in many ways.Helped people of all skill levels.Helped people come outa ther shells,Make some great freinds,put faces and names together.Im sure anyone that was fortunate enough to be ther would agree and i hope would wana do it all again and bring some some new folks along.We all started somewher and learning with a large group of mixed levels is a Fast Track way to move up a few steps on the ladder.
ALL ARE WELCOME,The more the better.A day trip on either days is also kewl for anyone who cant make the full weekend.

Im blameing Bob[Stone in shoe]for wetting our appetite for more.He did such a great job with the Org of the Dunstable Gathering.His patience was legendary and hes mentioned he [and others]would like a trip up North for a weekend and do a similar gathering again.Thers been a few folk now asked if i [ME],would get the idea moving. They have asked abouta visit to Ainsdale beech near Southport.Its wher we fly regular as a team most Saturdays.,,,,
ok,im up for it and all the agravation it may bring.Ive done some ground work already

Heres the plan so far.
Dates are
November,Saturday 21st,Sunday 22nd.Tides are checked and are ok for Ainsdale beech.Some may wana arrive Friday 20th also.
Two days beech flying as a group.Split into teams of all levels or what everyone feels they would like to get from the weekend
We have some Gazebos and shelters sorted.Cars can park free at the beech and you can fly streight from your boot or store your kit in Our pop ups and team tents.
Its November,so plann on cold and wet clothing.That said.We do get some great weather on this coast for the time of year.Bring a Camera,an open mind and no egos please.
Im sure ther will be enough experienced pilots along to help.I hope we can tempt some team Captains...Hint hint Felix,Stephen,Simon,,,,,,,,

I have talked with several local Hotels and B&Bs in and around a 5 min drive to Ainsdale beech.Good locations at reasonable prices.
B&Bs on the same street.Within 20yds of eachother.Thers a good selection of rooms,singles,doubles,twins and family rooms.
The Premier Lodges are ok,but i think exspensive.Hotels are also.
The B&Bs are all nice.Located near all Southports DITRACTIONS.The proprietors are aware of us and kean to help.
Ive spoken with a local Indian Restraunt and Chinese[in English...lol].Thers several pubs on the street wher we will be based.Along with shops for bits and bobs.

A typical twin room.Two nights bed and breakfast[English]50-55 for the weekend ,per person.I will post links and info once i have an idea of definate numbers.

The beech,A few clips to give an idea of space.The second one i think was November three years ago.

Time for a meeting with some dutch Rev-Pilots Simon ?

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.
