That sound like a great idea Felix. We have 5 from the North East would be up for joining you all if it is still there.


Oh well, if the venue is still there it would be good.

Post mortem for WSIKF anyway. We will work something out.

Ah yea cool baloo, see what you mean, is it a dual line stunt or quad, or just a single liner?
There are some great restaurants at the mariner, or guys if you don't mind a bit of travel, like 10 mile, my brother in law is head chef at a great, little restaurant over the other side of the river gosport side, and they also have a small room in it for hire, I'm sure he could sort us out a really good deal if I knew how many would like this I could ask?

Well it was nice to say hello at Exmouth the other day, by the way the new JB Series standard was in stock and now on it's way.
Portsmouth was looking a bit of a non starter, but some kind chap at work has offered to cover the weekend. On that note count Teresa and myself in. Hope to see you at the ground soon, if not at Portsmouth. Mark

Shame you missed last Saturday, but I do understand with kids it can't always be easy.
As stated the JB STD and The JB Full are available for you to have a go one night if you can make the time.

Portsmouth was a def, but now it's a maybe, but Bristol is a cert.
Hope to meet up soon.

Kind regards to you both,

Mark and Teresa

Let's hope for a positive reply,as a small dedicated area for the rev
Flyers would be great


It looks like there will be a dedicated area. Gill is waiting to see the map and will then confirm one way or the other.

It was very good so if you were able to check it would be good.

Frankly, I doubt that it will still be there.

Thanks

That looks like it is placed to the west of the war memorial close to the road just where Rev fliers have congregated previously.

I hope that the dedicated arena is possible <grins>

Wind direction may be an issue here...

We do not want to be the other side of the road! <grins>

Otherwise, easy to do!

Well, we have managed to get a REV Arena for Portsmouth, it is in the same place as the Rev Arena was in 2008 (down by the bouncy castle) However..... The Rev Arena will be quite close to the tail of the Dinosaur (see previous post) , so it might not be quite rectangulat in shape, with a bit of a dog leg around the dinosaur's tail -thats one sentence I never thought I would write!
