Hi Damien,

Discussions are under way between various interested parties and there should be some celebration but the precise form has not been discussed at this stage. I think that it would be safe to say that any celebration would feature team flying!

I understand that light wind team flying went well at Portsmouth this year!

Best wishes

Felix

The Decs will not be going to Dieppe.

The Revolution theme for Bristol Kite Festival 2008 has basically been confirmed by the organisers. Now we have to get down to the details...

OK, so I have now basically got confirmation that The Decorators, Iquad and The Flying Squad will be at Portsmouth 2008.

Some of the Decs are planning to 'be available' between the Portsmouth and Bristol events with a mind to maybe travel to Bristol and using it as a base to go out and fly (Weston-Super-Mare, The Downs?) and do any PR stuff that is needed. We might even throw a bit of a party somehow <grins>

What we need to do now is gauge the level of interest!

Avril Baker and Martin Lester have suggested that an additional arena would be made available for the Revolution Fliers! We would be able to 'fly all day' as well as doing specific arena presentations!

OK Felix. We will keep our eye on this thread. We have to wait for the sign off from our sons surgeon through the Xmas period, but after that we can start to confirm plans. We are trying to put something together to come back for Portsmouth/Bristol, Bristol/Dieppe or some combination of all 3.

Keep up the great work.

Mark.

The Flying Squad is ready, willing, and ... well we're ready and willing :kid_smartass:

Now it's only a matter of persuading the Crazies and a few others of the European teams and we may even get more fliers than Tokyo Bay!

See ya there.

Looks like almos all the folks I want to see fly are going to be in the same place at the same time.

Will have to sort those dates out.

Might have to make Portsmouth and Bristol this year.

I hope it all works out.

I have the Flying Squad and Crazy Drivers signatures on my Rev bag. Hope to get a few more on there next year.

wOw.

Some of the Decs, myself included, may get to the Dunstable event in January, probably on the Sunday.

It may be good to have some individual fliers as potential recruits for the Portsmouth/Bristol event!

Happily it is now other people who are making the plans! I am hoping to hear who will attend. It would very interesting to do something on the scale of Tokyo Bay. There is a very big audience at Bristol...
