North East Kite Fliers are having a Rev fun Flying Weekend on The 13th and 14th February at Herrington Country Park (near to the UK Washington Kite Festival Site). We will have at least two members of the Flying Squad to help with coaching. Everyone will be welcome.

For anyone wanting accomodation we have secured a special deal though the camanile Hotel at Washington. Rooms will be available at £25 per room booked through our club. fliers will need insurance. if they don't have any they can join the club for £8 per household and will then be insured through the club for the event. We are also aiming to have an informal buffet and social gathering with activities on the Saturday evening if people are interested. (There will be a small charge for the buffet)

The North East is easy to get to. With good motorway access and we have trains, airports and even ferrys (for our European cousins). So we are not as far away as you might think.

I hope you can come along.

If you are interested give me a pm, let me know what you want from the weekend. you accomodation needs etc., and we will add you to the event list.


The Hotel Postcode is NE37 1LB
and the flying field postcode is DH4 7EL

We will have maps and escorts from the hotel to the flying field. if anyone needs my contact number give me a pm.


Okay heres who we have so far. If I have misspelled anyone name or got anything wrong give me a PM.

Hi Vince,

The Decs may be able to rustle up a few fliers. Not sure if we are up to coaching but as with the Ainsdale event may be able to contribute numbers wise.

It would give an opportunity for the Scottish and Manchester contingent to get to fly before the main season kicks in. <grins> (just in case they are watching)

This is going to be a great event and i am really looking forward to it. The flying site from what i understand is very large, grassed and with a great view (picutre courtesy of Choccy)

The hotel is the one used for the kite festival so the staff are used to kite fliers and indeed one of them is a Rev pilot himself. I am sure a warm welcome is guaranteed.

Hot on the heels of the great event in Ainsdale, it might be a good place to have a go at "Grid" flying if you have never tried before. So, sign up and come and enjoy the fun.

See you all there.

Stephen Hoath

Thats great news Bri. we look forward to welcoming you up North mate. It could be interesting to have the Eden project next to Penshaw with the monument behindPosted Image

Keith you will be most welcome we look forward to sharing the skies.

Its a shame you can't make it Dave. After your performance at Ainsdale your voice might be a little horse but the show must go on, and you did a great job at ainsdale. It would be interesting to know what part are you playing. Many years ago I went to a panto in Cornwall...........I'm sure one of them was called Jethro or something, anyway it was good, It was very good.

Ha! As long as the Eden project is not up-wind of the fliers it does not matter at all... especially in lighter breezes <grins>

I think we can spare a few acres Bri. The only stipulation is the size of the pegs - they can't be longer than a foot in case they hit the drainage tubes they have just laid. <Posted Image>

Vince,

What is the protocol for contacting the Hotel?

Our Scottish flier cannot attend. I am waiting to hear from the Manchester flier who sadly did not make it to Ainsdale.

David has already posted.

I will report back asap.
