Up Early pal,good morning to ya all
:) I admire your PMA my freinds from the north,,,,,

Doesnt the word,Gathering bring images of Mel Gibson in a kilt.
Storm clouds and rummbles of thunder in moody skys.
Cold steel and flashes of lightning,
Bob and his Ducks :lol: on stakes

One more day down,so technically,only two more gerups.

Looks like the best of the weather will be Friday afternoon and 9mph Sunday lunchtime just when we will be thinking of heading home. I think I may have to ask the wife for extra pocket money this week it look like I will be getting through a lot of lemonade.

I was thinking of getting out the second set of waterproof kit and boots 'just in case'.

I hope that David remembers the mega vented kites.

Can we fly out of the tent?

Quite! We live in hope... However, weather forecasts change, so we travel.

150 lb lines and mega vented kites were fine in 40mph last Saturday - but that was in the soft south (west) - we'll have to see if they manage as well in the dark north :wacko:

I was thinking maybe stick practice in the pub, but I havenít got a stick, or a routine to practice, come to that.

I've got a new toy to sharpen the reflexes though.

Absolutely, expect the best, but prepare for the worst.

Oh and anything but Boddington's, even yellow beer.

Correction: Anything but Boddinton's or Budd.

Weather.com has it down as a great weekend for washing kites (winds between 20-25mph) as does BBC weather. Metcheck suggests Sunday for blow drying (apart from the issue of more rain, of course).

I'm with Bri - looking for the seaside/beach micro-climate.

Then again, anyone know of a large (warm) gymnasium near Southport with 30+ indoor Revs for loan? :devil:

We've got to live up to the stereotype, after all! BTW: I'd like to be selective about the "it" you're invoking... B)

Just though, forgot to add the line

"At least I would have done if I had one"

Looks like full vent and doubled up leading edge, never thought I would wish I had a SLE!!
