OK, Does make the tent a bit heavy though, I presume....

Felix



Tis a sheltered life you lead Felix, tent safes are lightweight affairs designed to replicate a Lidl or Aldi carrier bag, what self respecting Northern person looks in those?

No I need the safe built in before I leave, I came away from the North with quite a lot more than I went with, they might have noticed and attempt recovery.



I beleive the package[s] of goods arrived ok.Dont be fooled into a false sense of security or into thinking ther actually realy what they apear tobe

Trust no one,suspect everyone

Your now Bugged and Videoed 24-7 and that scratching noise isnt your new hearing aid bedding in.Its our kit tunneling its way back home,with your mega vent plans.

I have sheltered on the kiting circuit for 20+ years. Are you trying to tell me something???

Felix



....Well yes.... 20+ years is a long time to spend in a shelter, its beginning to notice.

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.


I have sympathies for the *huge* SLK inflatables where a solid anchor is needed. Some festivals do indeed provide anchor points.

However, for the main arena, there is typically one prime viewing zone - directly upwind of the 'performers' and it would seem fair this be mandated as a tent-free zone. The only logistical issue is knowing months in advance which way the wind will blow on festival days!

Andy,

I would not get into a conversation about those large inflatable things even if they have a SLK holding them up. <grins>

A sense of proportion may be helpful in respect of shelter and security of equipment...

Well folks
been to Decathlon today for another wind interupter for Daz Larsen
they are still £29.95 but only had grey coloured ones in stock (still showing £79 on the net)
even after I took one for Daz there was still about 8 left
we will soon have enough of these to build a wall around the arena at Portsmouth lol

When those 'boats' go past who needs a wall?

At low tide there is a big one in place anyway...

Still, just shows what can be done in the face of adversity. <grins>EDIT

you wasn't supposed to tell everyone,we will have to get the IROS (international register of obstructive shelters)together to sort this problem out.But the price of 30,you can't go wrong,and they dont just have to be used at festivals.

IRONY ?

Word has it that some kite fliers 'do not get it'.

Sense of humour failure can work both ways, of course.

Daz's phone ring's so much in the shelter I was thinking of painting it red and putting in window's, if Pete and Gareth come for a fly that will be four we've got, we can really disrupt the wind then ! if a job's worth doing it's worth doing well.

If they disrupt the wind so much, how about putting some lines on them, see if they will fly?

Kev has just purchased EIGHT...lol
From Stockport Branch

Six Std base models at 29 ,,,,Great call Bazz
And,
Two Full Base models at 65..This model has four opening doors.Two of them open and connect to the small pop ups[2second tents] .The other DOORS open like the std models DOORS.The price should be 129.The prices do vary from store to store and arent always advertised on the Interweb,so make the call before traveling.Its more exspensive at Nottingham to purchase ther,than Stockport branch on this model,so worth findout in advance.

Which now means.We can accomodate a full Mega Team and offer a variety of Accommadation options or cause enough wind disturbance at a festival.That we create our own Micro Climate to fly in.

We now have,
Eight small pop ups
Ten base models
Two Full Base,,,,WHY,I realy do not know,,,,lol

We have 2 weeks free in July[red month] and all August and september[blue months]can be reserved.
