Just to thank Brian and all the team for one of the best flying days ever.

The welcome, hospitality, help and support were perfect.
Then to be part of the mega flies was the icing on the cake.
Roll on the next gathering.
Hope Sunday went as well.

Regards

Pete

Awesome job by Bri, Kev and the ladies - Teas, Coffee and home-made soups on tap throughout the event. Rev pilots grinning from ear to ear for 2.5 days solid!

And a special thank you to the wardens for putting those nice big kite stakes all along the beach - no danger of them pulling out of the soft sand in a high wind!

I'm just going to re-title the event: "UK Rev Party 2009". And to rub salt (or should that be sand?) into the wounds for those that couldn't make it this time around - you don't know what you missed! (But you can be sure we'll do our best to make it perfectly clear to y'all! :devil: )

I'll try to post a picture of the new improved "grip profile" ultra-portable Rev handles once I've got the leader lines attached....

Thanks again Bri for making it all happen!
Andy

P.S. Can anybody help, I sampled a rather strange local delicacy in the restaurant Saturday night, it tasted a bit like pork but slightly sweet and ever so tender and only came in tiny portions. Does anybody know what it was?

What a weekend!

Simon and I are hugely grateful to Bri and team (and lets not forget the wonderful wives!) for making it all possible. We had a fantastic time and felt so well looked after. All the food, coffee and shelter gave us much needed breaks from the wind and the rain. The prezzies were brilliant too, we're both still laughing :lol: . Also, may I say: what a beach you guys have! I still think we should have packed it overnight and brought it back with us. Oh well ... we'll just have to come and visit you again...

And also thanks to all the fliers who participated. It was good to exchange ideas and learn some northern calls, I'm sure they'll be confusing us for years to come! Oh, and Bob, thanks for the trousers, they were a life saver.

My kite and I just had a lovely shower and some day we may even get rid of all the sand. I reckon if I start collecting it all now, I can start building myself a little beach in the back garden ;)

Anyway... wow... thank you all, I'm still buzzing!

Hey, It was a 'limited representation' of the team but I am glad that you enjoyed the proceedings.

I certainly enjoyed the event and also the opportunity to try some long arm treacle stuff in high winds... David E. noticed Ashley's un-tutored adoption of some aspects of the technique.

Not quite, I think.

The handles would have been horizontal and there would have been no 'bent elbows'.

It is not a relaxed configuration to adopt...
