By the way, I forgot to mention that Team Bolau :blue-cool: will be present in one of the August events, we've not been able to confirm which one yet.

We are really exited :w00t: and happy :blue_wink: to have the opportunity to participate in such BIG reunion.


See you very soon ......


Hi Jose,

I had marked your team for Bristol but realise that this may not be correct.

Please let me know which event you could attend and the names of the fliers in due course.

As noted else where......<snip>

There is obviously some interest in the numbers who could attend <grins>

Thanks

Felix

Felix, for your spreadsheet You can add me where you wish, either under The Flying Squad or if they dis-own me as an experienced flyer.

Also, with experienced Rev flyers who dont feel upto being part of the BIG show, how about asking for volunteers as ground crew?

Regards Simon.

Hi Simon,

I am not quite sure what you are trying to tell me here. It is not 'my spreadsheet' but just an attempt to gather the information together to pass on to the organisers at Portsmouth and Bristol so that they know what could be possible. <grins>

I think that your suggestion regarding ground crew is excellent. I think that we are aware, as you say, of individuals who may not feel confident in being part of the show but would like to contribute! I guess that they may be reading this and so would like to invite them to let us know of their interest.

As an aside, I understand that TC, Tony Cartwright, will be Field Director at both events and should be copied in on all planning discussions.

(They are not really going to dis-own you, are they? What did you do/not do?)

Best wishes

Felix

Just thought we would pop in and echo the thoughts from Bristol - it is looking extremely good for Portsmouth!

If anyone has any questions about Portsmouth - logistics or otherwise then please get in touch. We hope to be able to help people who are coming in one way or another but it will ultimately depend on the number as budgets are not unlimited! Accommodation wise we are fortunate to have the University Halls of Residence within walking distance of the flying site so everyone should be able to be in the same place (if they want!).

We look forward to seeing many of you at Portsmouth (and the rest at Bristol as we will be there).

Jon and Gill Bloom

Well Felix, I'm definitely up for it - started doing a bit of research to arrange it, but I'm afraid I'm not anywhere NEAR the point where I could make any kind of flying contribution, I'm afraid. But I'll be there supporting! :kid_smartass:


Hi Fraser,

In the event that you were able to attend would you be able to 'field crew'?

We will probably need quite a few people to help TC at both events!

All the better if they know how a Revolution is put together!

Please let us know in due course.

Thanks

Felix

Hi Felix,

We have not decided yet which event we will participate on, mostly because we are still finding flying alternatives (and I'm talking about airplanes now ;-) to both sites, flying from Bilbao or even maybe from Biarritz. It's all about time tables and airlines. We already know that EasyJet reaches Bristol and that Southapmton is the closest airport Portsmouth (isn't it?).
We are a little bit prone to Portsmouth because it is held during our summer holidays so we would not need any "extra day off" (we will depart on friday and return next monday), but anyway, still working on it.

We are happy now to confirm that we will be present in Valencia Festival (from 28 to 30 of march) and in Berck Festival (days 10-11-12-13 april).

It is a very good idea to include more events in the list so everybody knows "who is where".

These are our names, so you can update the document
- Fernando
- Tonet
- Jose
- Jose L. (aka Giuseppe) and
- Nati

Warm regards from Team Bolau

,

We will await your decision!

I have added Valencia and Berck to the list so if other European teams could let me know their intentions I will mark them up as well!

Best wishes

Felix

Hi Ruud,

I will have to make the list a bit more specific for Berck so that it is clear that there are two weekends!

Thanks

Which year were the photos taken? I cannot 'remember' when we first had Jørgen Møller Hansen sails.

How many of TFS will be at Valencia? Are you at Berck as well, first or second weekend?

We need to know <grins>

Martijn,

Are you an 'individual' flier or part of Team Time Out?

Please be aware that inclusion on the 'list' does not imply that the Festival organisers can offer financial support.

Simon,

I thought that it was probably 1991! The bags and the tracksuits were kit for Malaysia. 'Training' the team was payback time! Jacob's jacket was from another team!

It was after Kolding that Johnny Claffey joined the Decs as I recall!
