That's a good idea, also another use for the dedicated Quad area. When the "teams" are displaying those a little nervous can get together for some fun.

No doubt Jonesy & Yarna will be up for a few friends to play with and can lead the way


Ideally, the dedicated Quad area should be fully utilised on a rotating basis by all levels of fliers. <grins>

However, there will probably not be space to accommodate absolute beginners as in a practical sense they would probably need exclusive use of all of the space available...

As a very new flier I would be grateful of any assistance that could be given.

The Ultrasaurus is placed quite close to the road and is roughly in the area where the Brighton Kite Fliers usually set up camp. It is much nearer the Static arena. If the rev arena is past the static arena then it will not interfere. I forgot to drive down to see if the Ethiopian restaurant is still there.

managed only a couple of photographs, my daughter was taking pictures of my wifes delta whilst I had landed on the Ultrasaurus. Then there were too many people and a Gazebo suddenly appeared in right in front of me as about 10 families started a barbecue. I was not able to get close enough to land again once I moved out of the way and my parking time was up.

I have not worked out photo links yet. The Ultrasaurus seems to be very popular especially with the children.

I intend to be a Portsmouth and hope to fly so If you see someone walking around with a kite bag it will probably be me getting up enough nerve to ask for help. I have Friday off work as well if anyone is coming early.


Cheers
Stephen

Ask Daved E and Sailor how good I am at crashing thier kites, wouldnt want the reponsibilty for taking the whole grid down :)


Chris,

Would you be able to look after the arrangements for the arena? This is possibly a bit more than 'ground crew' and I appreciate that you may only be there on the Sunday.

It would be great to have someone 'run the field' on both days...

Please let me know what you could do in this respect.

Thanks

Felix

Hi,
I had managed to get my Rev on the neck like the photo but sadly my daughter did not get the photo it was my best flying effort to date:kid_cussing:!


Felix:- I will definitely make myself known, hopefully I will meet up with some flyers on the Friday.

Baz & Daz I hope to meet you on the Friday for some flying.

Jonesey:- Look forward to meeting you, I have been to Stokes Bay on a couple of Sunday Afternoons but have only seen power kiters there. Usually I have been flying at Port Solent on the smaller field next to the harbour.

I hope that I manage to get my skill up to a level where I do not need to keep to the other end of the common so that I am safe.

Cheers
Stephen:matrix:

Weather is positively biblical down here at the moment but confidence is high that when you all arrive in the promise land the sun will shine (I'm so going to regret saying that) .. Either way we have wifi and a wine cooler in our tent so come what may 'she'll be right'..

See some of you Friday afternoon for a warm up..

Had hoped to be there but yet again work gets in the way.
Thought I had cover... But once again it only seems to work one way.
At least it buys the Rev's.
Hope you all have fun, and look forward to saying hello at Bristol, if your going.
(There both days, on holiday!)

Regards,
Mark
