#95496 Lee sedgwick 1.5 warm colors

Posted by Vince on 28 September 2014 - 09:53 AM

Interesting. We had similar discussions about our team kites and found the B-series difficult to reconcile with our Sedgwick influenced stripes. The Los Hermanos printed sail you can have the printing over the mesh. This was a huge help to us but we also added a black division between colours to define the stripes. A word of warning with the printed sail - Just make sure you put the right kite in the right bag after use as it can be very difficult to tell if it is standard, mid, or full vent once on the lines! For us the printed sail was the perfect solution

Thank you Vince and all of your team for having taken part in a very constructive weekend. The flying may have been a bit difficult at times but the ideas and discussions were great.

It was great that the representatives of the YSP turned up at the right moment today even if they missed the key moments yesterday!

We should set about planning the 'next one' as it really seems that the 'large team' format is the way to go, despite the logistical issues.


The YSP representative were extremely impressed and indicated they would like future events. They even suggested other areas of YSP which we could utilise.

I have already took the liberty of making some initial enquires for locations for the 'next one' I will keep you informed . I totally agree the large team format is the way to go.

Thank you Martin and Felix for your help we have booked our rooms for Fusion.

If we are going for Mercedes I think a "Felix" between rotations might be good.

Hi Felix,

We will be there again this year with at least four.

Hi Terry,

Four from Fusion are heading to Berck also. It would be good to meet up.

Sunderland is indeed doubtful Felix :sq-cry:

There is a few from the North East for both camping and halls but we have not given specific reference as rev fliers, perhaps this is the case with others.

Having been through the hoops in 2008 I would hesitate in getting involved in such projects until it is clear that the level of participation is sufficient.

As I mentioned, it would be good if someone local to Portsmouth was able to volunteer to take on organisational/coordination matters.

We need a 'project manager'. I am not in a position to take on such a role.


I can see the importance of being local but I think it may be easier if more than one could take on such a role. I'm sure we would all offer support to this group where we can. I'm looking forward to seeing this develop over the coming weeks and coming to Portsmouth 2011.

Would it be worth suggesting a keep sake of the rev event at Portsmouth. Tee shirts or a badge. It would probably require some expertise but dare I say any profits may be used to subsidise fliers costs. It would be great to get a step nearer to the magic grid and a small incentive may help.

So no feedback from 'the Squad' about invading their turf then?? Wonder if we should hire scooters for the day or are we the rockers?

Please don't move it to Brighton Mr Jones. As I recall the only Geordie was a bell boy!! Not good, the North East lot will just stick to revs.

Its a great idea Baz. It would be great to catch up with everyone again. It's been a difficult year for me and a road trip to meet rev friends is just the ticket. We might even get a grid going Baz. :innocent:

Hi Ben,

I'm sorry to hear about your foot. You always do the right thing for others. Now its time to do the right thing for you. You are more than a match for this challenge and you are in our thoughts. Be positive, have a speedy recovery - Get well soon Ben.

#71247 Portsmouth anyone?

Posted by Vince on 18 July 2010 - 10:13 AM

Thinking ahead, who would be up for a meal at the Ethiopian Restaurant (if it is still there) local to the Halls on Sunday evening?

Users of uk.sys.comp.mac on usenet have a habit of meeting on the Goldhawk Road near Shepherds Bush at an equivalent venue.


That sound like a great idea Felix. We have 5 from the North East would be up for joining you all if it is still there.

#70932 Portsmouth anyone?

Posted by Vince on 09 July 2010 - 09:53 AM

We are looking forward to Portsmouth. A few from the North East should be present.

A great festival and Pauline the event organiser is wanting a rev grid/mega fly in the arena on both days. If you are going. You will need to register to fly in the arena for insurance purposes. The forms can be found at http://www.infinitea...efestivals.html http://www.sunderlan...sp?EventID=2216 or pm me and I'll get one to you.
