Just had a look on the Decathlon site, still showing as 79, is there a special offer I am not seeing?

Was impressed with the Soup Tent Bri.

I'm wondering if pricing varies by store (if they have stock)? The London location was showing some offers on the tents.

Had mine for a few month's now, don't know how I managed without it, great for putting everyone's gear in so it does not get damp this time of year and also stop's people cluttering up the flying field with their bag's, with the risk that someone, a kiteflier or joe public standing on a kite or spar's

What can I say Bri
YOURS are very Greeny coloured indeed
AND you do have THREE which is quite a high number.no really it is
The enviro friendly floor you put in at Ainsdale was very impressive IT LOOKED JUST LIKE REAL SAND very absorbent too
I would imagine the odour of pumpkin soup is enough for anyone to get the tents up sharpish just in case the soup ladies turn up with there wares (i can dream cant i)
I would also like to add that WE did NOT copy Bri at all when we bought ours after seeing his at Portsmouth,no honestly we didnt,positively not,oh no we wouldnt
anyways
HAPPY NEW YEAR to all in REV LAND
lets hope it a good one

<rant>

But, but, but...

I hate these structures that proliferate alongside arena edges with poles and flags and all. Do these 'kitefliers'(?) know what they are doing?

The arena at Berck is ruined 'airflow wise' up to about 20 feet above the ground by that 'beautiful' line of flags at c100cm intervals.

As to those inflatable monstrosities at Portsmouth and Bristol I just do not know what the 'kite festival' organisers are thinking of.... (apart from the fees of course)

And you should know better...

There is no such thing as a 'humble Rev Flier'.

They are all 'especially gifted'....

Fair point though on the affect of the Tents on ground wind Felix.Hadnt thought of that.Placed in mass in the wrong place.They could ruin a routines ground moves.

Good thinking from the voice of traveled experience

Blame Bazz for making them Common.They was reasuringly exspensive[stella artois advert]and very exclusive when we bought ours....Posted Image Posted Image

Hi Brian,

The truth is, they do ruin ground moves.

A line of people standing up are enough to ruin ground moves as we learned, long ago at Berck when the audience lined up either side of our team way down the beach in two great long lines. They were blocking us from going to the edge of the wind window as well...

No blame though, only education isn't it?

Hi Kieth,

You are quite right! The other thing that we see is people insisting on driving their cars up to the flying field edge and hoping that the organisers will not ask them to remove them.

This <rant> could go on for a bit...

Under the quite appropriate 'Ideal Festival Base Tent' thread title I wonder if we could set about establishing some better practices....

Given that the better viewing point really is 'up-wind', maybe 'Base Tents' should be 'down-wind'? I appreciate that at some events this may not be practical but I know that you will all 'get the drift'.

This is something orgainsers really ought to consider, if they are supposed to be kite festivals seeing the kites would be an advantage.
The view at Bristol 08 for folk as they entered from the car park is an example, tents, shelters and vehicles along the full windward arena edge.
