I just did a casual count and it looks like we will hit 200 at the end of this year or early next year <grins>

We might have to organise another celebration...

The first 100 came round quickly, we had to take it a bit more gently as we got older!

Let's hope we are all around to enjoy the party !!

Nothing Older in Europe or US, only others might be in Japan.





Hey I'm impressed these guys know how many festivals they've done!!  




Any team that's been a round more than 5 Years is a MAJOR achievement.

We did not invent team rev flying but took it up very early in the scheme of things and developed it in our own way.

Recording the events came later and is subject to correction.

Not so fast. We have to do the 100 first...

Time is running out as well (difficult to put an appropriate phrase/graphic here)

I got some new shoes/boots today so feel set for the coming season. Again, given flying alongside team mates who are getting on for being twice as heavy, foot 'wear' (Edit spelling) does become significant. Fliers with low body mass do need to adopt different strategies in order to cope...

Congratulations Felix and Decs. Do you know at which event will be 200th, and can you remember when and where you did the first one.

The celebration could be something to remember.....................<grins>.

We have to get there yet! <grins>

I remember Easter Blackheath 1988 but that was Rokaku. I will have to think about the first Rev events. I think that the Berck image on the Decs site is probably 1990. By Autumn 1991 at Kolding in Denmark I think that we had JMH custom sails. There is certainly an image on Blackheath that bears this out.

Anyway, it really does not matter precisely but we will find a reason for a celebration at some point... (and make sure that everyone is made aware)
