A great festival and Pauline the event organiser is wanting a rev grid/mega fly in the arena on both days. If you are going. You will need to register to fly in the arena for insurance purposes. The forms can be found at http://www.infinitea...efestivals.html http://www.sunderlan...sp?EventID=2216 or pm me and I'll get one to you.

Vince is right-a great festival with fliers from all over the UK.
There is always international fliers with new and amazing kites. One not to be missed!
Only 18 days to go.

A great festial and you will receive a warm welcome.

I am already pre-committed to another event and so will miss it this year. This will be the first one i have missed in over 10 years so i am relying on you guys to post a festival report here so i can enjoy the event when i get back.

See you all soon.

It is a very good festival. The Decs first attended in 1989 and apart from 1995 and 1997 we were there every year up to 2000. I think that I turned up in 2001 but unfortunately the rest of the team couldn't travel at the last minute for one reason or another.

We should be eight or possibly nine fliers this year so it looks like a sixteen person grid is on the cards.

All being well we can build on the Ainsdale and Penshaw foundations <grins>

I know, apart from when they were taking out my appendix and wouldn't let me out of the hospital I haven't missed this event since the mid 1990's.

However, i will console myself with a trip to Portugal to fly with Lung Ta and The Flying Squad. Don't feel too sorry for me! :kid_smartass:

Chris,

It looks like forecast conditions have moderated for Sunday and the wetness will be over night Saturday. Could still be a bit breezy on Saturday. Not Zen weather I think.
