So, never having Blogged before please let me try to understand what is expected. (apart from the last two!)
I fly Revolution kites most weekends on Blackheath in SE London, sometimes with the team, The Decorators.
There are anecdotes and observations relating to this and related matters which I may want to record for my own and potentially, (who knows) other's interest!
I first posted (in 2007) on the Revolution Forum in respect of organising the Portsmouth/Bristol events in 2008. Occasionally/often responses to postings in the forum may be outside the topic in strict terms. OT in 'usenet' was a fairly strict designation but we may not want to go there.
There have been observations about the friendly and inclusive nature of the Rev Forums which I would endorse and I would applaud the careful moderation of the site. I have seen a couple of examples of individual posters getting over excited and have withdrawn some of my own posts as a result!
As I understand it, we can use the space to contemplate possibilities that we had not thought of previously, like the grid format! <grins>
