REALLY sorry i missed the weekend everyone was well up for some Rev fun too. Unfortunately, in the end we had family staying at short notice so it wasn't a go-er.

Brian and all.



Thought I must join the board to say what a great day I had on Saturday. Well worth the trip from the North East, thanks for letting me fly, a novice, with such a talented group of people.



However I must inform you I seem to have developed a bit of a bug I hope its not contagious the symptoms are

Aching arms, as if I've been pulling against something

Inclined head, as if been looking up.

A fixed gaze, fixed at about 120 foot.

A yearning/lust for a strange flying object.



Hope I've found part of the cure thanks to a "True Gent" on FracturedAxel who goes by the name of "oldflier" who was selling a Vented SLE, proceeds to Children in Need. I did the deal, deposited the money and kite received today. Now can't wait to get out at the weekend to fly it



All the best, and may the winds be good for you.



Chris

Well, Kev presented his LITTLE memento to Brian at the weekend.
One of Brians other hobbies when he's not flying is collecting Zippo lighters, so kev sorted him out a "special Zippo" & yes it really does work!
As kev said, oh behalf of everyone a BIG thanks Brian for all your effort in organising a great weekend.

Dave.

Wow Bri, you got a big un.

Cool prezzie, thanks for doing that Kev.

Bri, you be sure to take care if you ever light it indoors. Make sure thare are plenty of Fire Extinguishers about.

With a lighter that size you never know what might happen.

Thanks Bruce for this - and to your wife for the superb filming. I particularly liked the last part filmed through the car windscreen to avoid the rain. :)

Rain, what rain, I had a fantastic Summery Day, it is always Sunny when I am flying. (And if you believe that you will believe anything)

Yep, as above, thanks to you both for the video.

So Brian, having now convinced those of us who were unable to attend that we really missed something special what are the dates for next year ???? :confused!:

After all the weather can only get better and with more flyers I am sure it can be made an event to remember !!

Event, how dare you?

It was not an event, just an informal gathering of friends. ;)

Oh and yes there were quite a few of us and we had a great time, looking forward to the next.

Well done to Keith on sneaking a paragraph write-up of the event into the January 2010 edition of "The Kiteflier" (on the STACK page in case you've not seen it yet).
