I am going to Blackheath for the first time in 20 years. It is where I started with kites when I lived in Crouch End. I even flew once in a competition with 'Up on the Downs' from Bristol where I now live. Looking forward to seeing the mega rev team.

Hi Nick,

I'm not sure how many rev fliers will be there at this stage. There should be about 8 from The Decs...

Jon and Gill suggested it was going ahead when we saw them in Cervia.

It is still on the KSGB site, 12-13/06/2010!

My father died six weeks ago and I seem to have lost my short term memory for a while....I double booked Saturday 12th, doing a kite party on the Downs in Bristol. Gill and Jon Bloom very kindly have still invited me and I will now get there at 5pm on Saturday...better late than never. Any party planned for Saturday night? Nick.

Would have liked to go to this one, however it is over 3 Hours for me so a bit far away (yes I know I am a wimp)

Anyway working today, what a chore, got to go drive a Land Rover round in the mud.

And we now have visitors on Sunday so I now have another excuse besides the distance. (Yes I know my visitors would probably love a trip to Blackheath )

Hope you all have a great time and that the Weather is good to you. Send all of us that will not be there some pictures please.

Chris, Always welcome.  Sorry didn't spend more time with you (or the other) but with Mr H off it was all a bit nerve racking.

Not at all. Quite understandable. Especially on the Sunday....what a crowd!!

Hey Simon, we loved your 'TJ Hooker' style leap over the cordon when chasing down that stray kite that accidently flew into the arena when the the Scratch Bunnies were on. Where were the cameras then....anyone catch that?! Posted Image

Kewl!!
