Well Saturday is looking a bit better wind wise now. It's even quite good weather if one were a duck. Sunday looks really great, apart from the threat of snow.

Sod the weather; I'm not going to let that stop me.

Only one more donning of the slumber-wear.

here is the 3 day weather forcast from
The B. B. C. [Big Bris Caravan] :P :)

http://www.windguru....dex.php?sc=1064

http://www.xcweather.co.uk/ Hover over Crosby or Blackpool.Then click and weather is displayed to the right

Anyone arriving Friday.Bring a factor 30,its showing three suns and above average temps.Full vent with clean winds.Sunset should be good for the kite Photographers
Saturday is drying up and winds now droped into low 20iz.A little up though on Friday.4 wrap required in full vent.Excellent for keeping it up
Sunday cloudy with sunshine and showers.Winds in high teens/low 20iz..Still full vents and four wrap.swop lines over[tops n bottoms]and equalise natures way

If Google-maps could be believed I would be there at 1pm as well. In the real world, of course, it will be somewhat later.

An early start on Saturday may be a very good idea... <grins> Let's get as much as possible done as soon as is possible! /<grins>

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

If anyone is considering attending tomorrow then I can highly recommend it!

Bri and Dave plus there lovely wives went to a huge amount of trouble today to ensure everyone was happy and fully catered for. Homemade pumpkin soup was a lovely suprise - totally delicious.

Being novices me and my OH were struggling with the wind strength today, but tomorrow is forecast to be a little lighter. It did rain for a lot of the afternoon but not one person gave up flying due to this - much less rain forecast for tom! (0.3mm/3hr tom rather than the forecast 3.5mm/hr today!)

Pictures are uploading right now but be warned they are very amateur!

What a great day - well worth the travel.

Fantastic reception and facilities, great flying met lots of new friends and learned a lot. Yes we had rain and high winds, but it didn't spoil a thing and with over 30 fliers and 25 taking part in the mega fly it was grins all round.

Well done Bri and team I hope you have fair winds and good flying tomorrow.
Vince

All having a great time. Bri has just presented the prizes. Several people got a new design in high wind euro-short handles, but felix won the star prize - the first zen into the UK.

Hmmm... It may be the first Zen in the UK but I do not think that it will fly...<grins>

Hi Bri,

A big thank you, to you, Dave, your wives and everyone involved for a fantastic Saturday. :)
It was great to meet you all, and well worth the travel from Geordie land. :)
I learnt loads, met some great people and was involved with a 25 kite mega fly!!
My best ever flying day. :)


Hope you all have another great day today.

Pete
