Gill Bloom has e-mailed me to say that:- 'the Council have agreed for "us" to use the the top half of the underused public car parking field (near the Queens Hotel) as a separate Rev field - which is great for you and us as it gives us both more space.'

Further details are to follow. I understand that, and I quote:- 'if there were sufficient numbers a discount should be available from the Halls of Residence. This would have to be organised by the Rev fliers'.

So who is in and is someone local able to step forward on the organisation front?

Thanks

Felix

I think that it is a step up from the provision that was made last year. I will avoid mentioning the 100 number but I know that the more the better...

Maybe, but not that many in my recollection. We will need to be there in good numbers to justify the provision, obviously...

So far,I think there is 5 attending from the haven flyers.I will let you know if this changes.As for the 100,it would be great to get that many flyers in one location,but let's see how many turn up,then go from there.Perhaps an informal fly together on the Friday,if people can make it
All the best

It was OK last year with limited space set aside for Revs. I hope that you can all attend as there is real possibility to do a UK version of the Long Beach achievement with a 'big' audience.

All we need to do now is persuade some of our American and Japanese friends to make the trip... in addition to those in Europe, of course.

Would it be worth suggesting a keep sake of the rev event at Portsmouth. Tee shirts or a badge. It would probably require some expertise but dare I say any profits may be used to subsidise fliers costs. It would be great to get a step nearer to the magic grid and a small incentive may help.

Having been through the hoops in 2008 I would hesitate in getting involved in such projects until it is clear that the level of participation is sufficient.

As I mentioned, it would be good if someone local to Portsmouth was able to volunteer to take on organisational/coordination matters.

We need a 'project manager'. I am not in a position to take on such a role.

I'll be there, it's my favourite festival. I hope at least some international fliers will make the trip, last year was such good fun.

Last year was my first time at the Portsmouth Festival - Saturday/Sunday was great.
The Friday and Monday were just as good - great company and flying!
Already making plans for the return trip.

I can see the importance of being local but I think it may be easier if more than one could take on such a role. I'm sure we would all offer support to this group where we can. I'm looking forward to seeing this develop over the coming weeks and coming to Portsmouth 2011.

The more the better.

I hope that someone is able to take this on.
