I'm pleased to say I won't be there either, nor will the whole iQuad team. :D

Nice Queen reference John B!

Alas, this year I can totally go to this non-event. I'll be there for sure Posted Image Without a doubt Posted Image

I'm hoping this non-event isn't successful, like it usually isn't, again this year. That way I can for sure miss it next year Posted Image

Have Rev, Will Travel

We weren't flying south of the pier all afternoon with the Pittmans and the Wilsons, and won't be on the beach tomorrow until the wind doesn't come up.

Won't see you then.

Cheers
Fly together! Share the joy, Share the fun

Well, we're not 129 miles from the beach, so probably won't be there this afternoon when the wind hasn't come up.

Cheers,
Tom

Well......I didn't just arrive at the Shorebreak and I'm not eating breakfast on the terrace. I certainly won't be meeting up with the Pittmans, The Fosters and various and sundry others to not fly kites on the south side of the pier.

BTW, the weather isn't any good and the forecast is not crappy.....AT ALL!!!!!!!

CYA IN THE SAND!!!!!!!!!!!
or not!!!!!

Good flying at Huntington this afternoon. Had nine flying together until the wind got way too strong just after 4 pm.
We'll hit it again about 10 am tomorrow.
Fly together! Share the joy, Share the fun

Spent half the morning searching the South side of the pier for Rev fliers ... seems they are directionally challenged ... they were on the North side of the pier.

Beautiful day on the beach ...

Cheers,
Tom

OKAY, I've calmed down - some!! If I see the flag on that bigger building blowing correctly, it looks like a wsw or so wind, putting you south of the pier!! Posted Image Looks like too many bathers on the beach to use the north side!!

Where's everyone at??? WAH!!!Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image



I knowwwww, Wayne! There used to be 2 webcams on that beach, one pointed toward town and the other at the beach and ocean. It doesn't seem like the town view cam is around anymore. Sadly there really aren't any other good cams on that spot now. Posted Image I am very disappointed not to be able to watch the fun this year.

Thanks for the cooool pics Rich! SO wish I could not be out there right now.
