I hope to be there for the 25 Years Revolution Company event and the 100 flier team <grins>

It would be 25 years for the Decs as well but not all of us may be able to attend.

Would you have an apartment that could accommodate a Decs team?

Thanks

Pignbroke, WSIKF is the obvious choice partly because it is a whole week long. Actually more like 10 days, because lots of fliers come early. But there are other weekend festivals, do you want people to recommend those?
As for WSIKF, here's what you could do in the northwest besides fly kites in Long Beach: Seattle, Portland, San Juan Islands (+++), Olympic peninsula, Oregon beaches, Columbia River Gorge (Hood River, OR and the waterfall route), Mt. Rainier in WA. Plenty to do, and August is a fabulous time to be here.

Hi Terry, looks good, as you are a veteran of this festival any tips on how to get there do you fly / drive? and any reccomendations on where to stay?


I like the look of this one for the early part of the year and then try a bit further later in the year.



Thanks

Hi Brian
Being from Aberdeenshire short arms and long pockets :kid_devlish:
We take our Motorhome the 1300 mile round trip and stay on the local aire.
Being a resort town there are loads of hotels b and b type places.

Nearer to the date there is a specific web site set up with links for all the resort.

Being only just over one hour from the tunnel it would be as easy for you to drive there if you wish.

I normally go for a Sunday arrive and leave on the next saturday am.

Hope this helps

Hope you are getting plenty of air time.

Terry

Well...I'm afraid everything was booked up and gone by July 17th! However....I have a 3 bedroom reserved for myself, Ben, and Geezer (Dave)for 2013. There is room for 5 more bodies....on two queen size beds and one couch....that is.....if Ben approves/agrees to share :kid_devlish: and if so...I'm sure with help, we could find a place somewhere for one more Dec to stay.
Hope this helps! Would be great to see you all here again!

Hi Theresa,

Thanks very much for the information. I will take it to PM or e-mail.

The Decs will be at Portsmouth soon and we should be able to confirm our plans then.

Best wishes

Felix
