Link to album with lots of pics!

http://s52.photobuck.....thering 2009/

Not edited any of them but they are all there.

Many thanks for the pictures Clare and sorry to have missed you.

Wow what an an achievement! The mega team looks great and hats off to the person calling.

I am proud of you all and seriously jealous that I couldn't be there. (I was appearing on stage in Opera at the time) but next time.

Bri, what can I say, anyone who has tried to co-ordnate this type of thing will have an idea of the work you and yours put in. Respect to all and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

How about a trip up to the North East in February? I'm sure we can convince Vince and his friends to host a little party! :devil:

We would be more than happy Stephen. Have you any dates in mind. I think Big Peter needs us to avoid one weekend in February (20th and 21st) so he can be part of it.

I've borrowed a picture to show part of the flying site (our local field). We would be to the right in an adjacent enclosed field.

Picture courtosy of Choccys album - I hope it's okay


I could'nt get to Bri's do but it looked really good. Will try and get to this one if possible, my mum lives 15 mins away and it's a very familiar landmark to me (Penshaw monument)

That'll be the geezer with the red hat - and he's still horse (edited by Bri for spilling ;) )

Fantastic weekend. I put another 700 miles on the car but it was so worthwhile. Really enjoyable to spend time flying with new and old friends and seeing how the skill levels are improving so quickly. Great fun.

The mega flies went well. We had several run throughs of the grid system - 20 in a 5 by 4 grid on Saturday afternoon was the largest. For most it was probably the first time that they'd got so up close and personal with the concept and all managed superbly. Thanks for putting up with my shouted gibberish :wacko:

Big thanks to Santa Bri and all your little helpers - we'll be back :)

Cheers all!

The geezer in the red hat did a marvelous job calling those mega teams. We have to work on those diagonals, though :P

Oh, also, he's great fun to fly along side with (and as naughty as Sailor!)... I wonder who he was .... :innocent:

Naughty, moi? Say things like that and people will start talking you know.

Santa baby, what a fab weekend you organised for us all. Thank you, and can you remember to pop one of your purple zens in the stocking at the end of my bed on the 24th of next month. Thank you to all of Santa's little helpers too - what a fab team you all are. Which reminds me - soneone picked the pocket of one of Santa's dwarves! How could anyone stoop so low ?
