People are arriveing and im doing some Airport pick ups also.Would be good to get together Friday Night around 8pm.Anyone needing food,a few pints,will be able to take advice and meet up with Myself and others.
Hows about we get together in,,,THE UKs SMALLEST PUB,,,,fill it to the roof with Rev flyers, will be so Kewl .Its a great place.Full of History.Just around the corner from Bath Street wher all the B&Bs are.Just Along the Promenade[B5245].Looks like a large bus shelter at the side of Marine Lake,but it serves a realy nice pint[or did last time i was ther].Has won many CAMERA awards .Its called the Lakeside Inn.Would get you out and a chance to see a few of the sights in Southport.

SATURDAY 21st November
Hit the beech early.9AMs good.bring 120ft lines,a full on flying day
I usually arrive at Ainsdale around 7am[latest],but this time of year.The day wakes late and the light goes quickly.We need to make the most of the day light and i fully intend to fly from Dawn,till Dusk as usual.We intend tobe down ther for 8AM Latest.Some of my Team pals will be along to help with Tents and stuff.Its quite a Tradition to send a SLK up as a Marker.Which we will do.One thing to consider.The TOILETS at the entrance to Ainsdale beech are Locked this time of year.I will try and Arrange with the wardens to have them open.Otherwise its the Dunes[large sand hills not a pub]or after 11am.The Sands Pub is open and will be kewl with folk useing the Toilets ther.Its just off the beech[2min walk]
Once your parked and introduced.I would say we all free fly for the first few hours.Get to know eachother and chat in the Brew tents on what we all wana do,achive and are goals.Thers a wide range of skill levels,Beginner to Top Notch.Team flying i think will be prominent,so as the morning gets toward dinner[12pm].We will try and put folk[if ya want to]in a quad.With a mix of equal skills and perhaps one Experienced Team Pilot for guidence.I think a set of 120s will be handy.Especially if ya wana get some team work done.Anyone wants learn a particular move,skill,or anything,please ask.Im sure thers a few folk that will have the answer and help.
DINNER 12PM,BAKERY,CHIPIE,SANDWICH SHOP,shops,pub,cafes.
Ainsdale village is 3mins off the beech.Thers a wide range of village shops for all your needs.I suggest a sandwich ,pie,chips,a takeaway basically.Ther will be brews in our tents,Tea,Coffee,and juice.Good house keeping is key here.Keep it tidy and leave as you find it...simples.Thers also a few nice cafes and Pubs if you want that.I find eating does get in the way of my FLYING...LOL
AFTERNOON,TEAMS AND A MEGA FLY
Anyone thats flow in a large number will know what a Buzz it is.Since we have so many kites together,we have to take the bull by the horns and work Towards a Team Mega Fly,
ITS THE LAW,,,, .
We can build in the morning peoples confidence,build the group sizes during the early Afternoon.Then finish with us all a bunch of Nervous wrecks,,,,,, ,flying in a MEGA TEAM of around,,,,,, TWENTY FIVE,,,,Yeh baby.
Would realy be kewl if we can bring achive this.We shall see.
SATURDAY EVENING,MEET AROUND 7PM
I would like to Gaze into David Ellisons eyes again .What i mean is.When i last met loada flyers from all over the country.We all went and ate together.I enjoyed the company very much.Dave was sat across from me and i can tell ya,he eats more Chinese than a team of SUMOs.
Thers a few restraunts that are a stones throw from wher the B&Bs are.I vote for Indian.We will need numbers if we wana book a large number,so give me a few clues on the meal thing,idea.Thers also,Pizza Huts.Mc Donalds,English,Italian,Pub foods....the lot.People can do as they wish offcourse.
Would be good to have a Pint though a little later and chat together.LEOs Bar,is at the corner of Bath Street,on Nevile Street.Againwher the B&Bs are.
LETS SAY 8.30 LEOs BAR
After a full days travel and then fresh air,im sure some will be ready for bed by 10.30 ish,,,,,,,, .Again,we shall see what happens
SUNDAY 22nd NOVEMBER
Hit the beech a little later,its Sunday[9.30]
I will be down early along with a few pals,to set the tents up and stuff.I think we can pick up wher we left of or do a similar list of stuff from Saturday.Sundays a little quieter easy Sunday Morning.But,
No slacking off.Take full advantage of being together i say.Learn,make freinds,help and spread a Happy Vibe.
Food on Sundays is a little harder to find in Ainsdale.Maybe a good idea to buy Saturday or......shall we pre arrange some Bryan Bs pork Pies.Ther will be Tea,Coffee,HOT SOUP,,,MMmmm,and juice in our tents.
SO,WADA YA THINK
Give me some ideas,feedback.Then we can get stuff Sorted
Talk soon peoples
