Hi JB, You know you are in the photo, looking at this again I think I got your age wrong, maybe 15 or 16?

But who's that girl between you and Scot (UK STACK Flyers should remember her!!)

BTW who is the team in the Background :P - Stephen Hoath should know (or Sabine etc...)

For those that didn't know That is Paul Jobin, The lady with him is Kate Markham, the black trousers therefore would be Bob Markham or Dom Early. I cant remember the name of the guy with the 90's sunglasses.

You are trying to park on the flag pole, however two of the tips are on each side preventing you from going further backwards into the parking position.
In other words, the curb got in the way.

I thought for sure that first comment with this bunch would be about pole dancing. :lol:
That's close John but not quite.

The clue is "don't sit there too long!"
However I had my guess.
Next Rever please!

I was a ripe old 17 or 18 years of age in that photo, my first World Cup ™. :)

GREAT memories, for sure.

It's not the size of your Rev.. its how you use it.
Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

There was a song back about 1960 that had the word something like this:
"Fly me over the moon" or "Fly over the moon"
I don't remember much more.

Now I wish I had thought of a few of those as a way out of it. I thought about starting a most embarrassing flying moment with that photo but dicided to dump it here instead.

I was goofing around landing on the tips of a bunch of construction cones set out at my favorite flying field, Veterans Park in Milwaukee, WI. I got bored with the cones as they were getting a little to easy to land on and I decided to set my sights a little higher so to speak. Right there in front of me was this very tempting flag pole with a big brass ball that was baiting me so I took on the challenge. I was doing just fine till the wind decided to add a new dimension to the game and shifted about 30 degrees on me, the kite dropped right over that big brass ball and proceeded to loop the bridle around the top ot the pole leaving me stuck there for all onlookers to enjoy. I know there is a video of it out there some place :blushing:

Don't sit there too long, you'll get stuck. You aren't the only one to have that happen to them. Light poles, flag poles are all great Rev eaters.

Now I remember! "Fly me to the moon"
The most popular singer was Frank Sinatra. Others singing it were "Agnetha Faltskog" of ABBA, Diana Krall, Tony Bennett and many other.
