Back in Devon safe and knackered.
"Awesome" time had amongst the UK contingent of this truly dysfunctional family!
Lots of wind, lots of venting, lots of fun.

Good to put faces to many new friends and great banter catching up with the old reprobates (you know who you are!)


....apparently at some stage the gorilla ate the pie, but we all know who did it first (at least 20 years ago) ;)

Now here's a neat trick that I suspect most of us missed - two people flying eight kites! I wonder if this is a first or if someone else managed this little trick back in the early eighties ;)

Good afternoon People!

Been in about an hour after the trek home. Bit nervy setting off, having listened to the weather forecasts for the north of England and Scotland (these are places above Birmingham - for all you soft southerners...), but only the second last 20miles of the 400 was at all dodgy.

Just spent a great 15minutes laughing my head off at everyone's comments about the weekend - everyone obviously enjoyed it, which is just fantastic.

Gimme 24hours or so (and a flurry of red-faced PMs to check things/names with various people :confused!: !) and I'll post the 'report'!

Gotta join in the effusive thanks to Stephen and all the other non-organisers though and all the coaches who bizarrely happened to be there even though nothing had been organised. PLEASE feel free not to bother to organise more things in the future!

Fraser

Oh, incidentally, did everyone have INSURANCE? Ha!

Ian4C is the one I think people are waiting for, he is the one that took the video of the of the FS & Decs mega team that people want to see, but donít want posted on You Tube, but it may be a few days before he posts, I know he was of to visit family before heading home.

Also i think a very large thanks should go to BOB, who did a lot of the backstage stuff.....un-sung hero!!

I think ďun-sung hero,ď is pushing it a bit, all the thanks Iíve had. Iím starting to blush. :blushing:

I think the title of hero of the w/e has to go to either Fraser for distance travelled or to Sailor99 for his team flying, he recons heís only been flying Revs a few months but he put me to shame.

Hope we can do it all again soon, in warmer conditions.....Just had a thought, how about a Revolution weekend in Spain.....Bob, over to you!!!!

Donít look at me Iím not up for not organising this one. It needs somebody with a good knowledge of Spain, Iíve never flown a kite on mainland Europe, though if you know of any well travelled Rev flyer who fancies giving it a go, please let me know, though not for a couple of days, Iíve just put the dates for Portsmouth an Bristol on the family calendar and I think it might be wise to let the dust settle a bit. SWMBO is a little :angry:

You're too kind young sir. I guess I spend too much time watching the video's that came with the kites and 'imitating' what john-B does with his hands, if you see what I mean. Maybe I should get out more! As for the team flying, all I can say is that it rocks! Just a shame that the lines get all wound up - why has someone not invented bluetooth revs?
