The day started with 5-7 mph wind. 2 wraps & race rods were perfect - The wind picks up to 11-12 mph. The race rods were perfect. The wind picks up to 15-20 - vents & 4 wraps & all hell breaks loose. (literally - some may have seen the big red puffer fish).

The day was amazing & I got to meet more people....And learn alot more. Thank you.

Ant if you are reading this....& I know you are.
To quote Bazzer..."Where is ANT?..... I have the beers."
I guess Baz drinks alone tonight.

Jojo your pics were great. I have a new observation. It you take the Revs Kissing pic & cut it in half it looks like Gonzo from the muppets. Only green of course.

Saturday at Riis Park was FANTASTIC.
SKY FESTIVAL PRODUCTIONS put on one hell of an event.
Thank you Beatrix.

Oh yeah- Ben was rockin on that progressive stack. It was worth it just to see that.
I hope your Sunday is just as good.

Thanks again to Ben for letting me use one of his vented B-series so I could fly! I would have put the 2&3 wraps in mine but I didn't feel like manhandling that thing around and wanted to play safely over the walkway with people. I love flying over beachwalks. I tip-stood on a couple of people's hands and wowed small children (and adults too) - always a good time...

Till Jay Nunes had to go and ruin it.

Thanks a lot Jay. :kid_brooding:




Nah j/k he was only messin around - took the wind outta my sail for a few seconds tho (hahaha nice one, Ang)

All in all good times, as always

Yeah, that was pretty funny. First mistake, landing on Jay's hand. Second mistake, not realizing that he was going to take out your down spar. Mwah ha ha ha haaaaaa. I wish I had thought of that. Hehe.

Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe
