No response regards room yet. Anyone else?
People are like Slinkys. Basically useless but fun to watch falling down stairs.

If you requested rooms - they are booked - we are just waiting to hear how much discount, Car passes (Felix!) are tied into name and vehicle reg numbers so non-transferable - the council will have a list.. so if you request a car pass we need the car reg. There are only 3 fliers coming from team AIR-4-CE. but we are still working on a few more teams.

Good!

Maybe USA pilot/s will make the journey given the number of experienced fliers who will be congregating at Portsmouth<grins>

Seems like we will have fliers from Holland, Germany, France and Spain. I do not have precise numbers at this stage, (nor am I particularly concerned about numbers <grins>) but I think that there should be about 48 'fully experienced' team fliers at the event.

My understanding is that the organisers KSGB have been in contact and that the team will attend. I have no independent confirmation at this stage...

Sadly, it now appears that the German team will not attend.

Maybe they would be able to attend Portsmouth independently?

I know that some fliers rely on a 'familiar environment' and feel overwhelmed if asked to work outside their comfort zone.

I know they don't have any problems with unfamiliar environments at all.

And we (AIR-4-CE) love to go outside our comfort zone too !! Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

See y'all there !

Well....

I was over there last year but that hardly counts!

If we could get the USA and Japanese teams together with the European teams we would have serious numbers.

Sadly I do not, at this stage, have access to funding possibilities on that scale. I am open to suggestions as ever.

I know it is not much, and possibly too late for this Year, however to help fund travel costs for long distance teams I would be happy to drop a Tenner in the pot, as long as maybe Felix was happy to administer the distribution of the funds, just an idea.

Another more risky idea, both Portsmouth and Bristol (the events I know the most) have auctions, is it possible that there could be a Rev fund part to the auction for items donated by local Rev fliers that could be put into a fund pot?

Maybe the "hook" presented to the auction organisers could be, with this fund we could help even more cool Quad fliers to the party.

Thanks for the suggestion but, as you say, too late for this year.

The cost of long distance travel is such that I see it as the main barrier to getting 100 team fliers together. I would be interested to discuss this further but think that administering a funding project could be a nightmare and not one that I would want to take on currently.

I would not want to administer it either, that is why I suggested you :kid_devlish: . I would be happy to try to help, just need to make sure any funds raised are administered properly and fairly.
