I was only able to pop down for a couple of hours but the event was jam packed with people, a really good advertisement for kite flying.

In the arena I managed to catch the Royston Power Kite Flyers, The Essex Flyer and Team Spectrum, all with impressive displays.

To finish off before I left there were two guys, sorry didn't catch the names, flying 1.5 vented revs, it was quite blustery on the Heath today but they did very bell showing off their skills and doing some freestyle work.

Awesome stuff.

That was me and Graham with full-vent and later mid-vent, ani_victory.gif

Yes it was blustery which made it interesting but it was walking up and down the hill that

nearly finished us old fellows off !sad.png

Yeah it's a pretty steep slope there, I've not flown at Royston before so it was good to check it out, can't have been easy going as it was pretty hot too. Great display though, were you the chap with the braces and hat or the other one?

Purple/grey mid-vent and purple braces to match, still looking for a purple hat !  ani_victory.gif
