Many thanks for the pictures Clare and sorry to have missed you.

Wow what an an achievement! The mega team looks great and hats off to the person calling.

I am proud of you all and seriously jealous that I couldn't be there. (I was appearing on stage in Opera at the time) but next time.

Bri, what can I say, anyone who has tried to co-ordnate this type of thing will have an idea of the work you and yours put in. Respect to all and I look forward to seeing you all soon.

How about a trip up to the North East in February? I'm sure we can convince Vince and his friends to host a little party! :devil:

Hey Stephen,you and yours we all owe our thanks to that flew over the weekend.Myself and Dave B especially so.Have to applaud our lads also.Ther well drilled pilots.Anyone could see that,but most of all,gents, one and all.Your help ,along with some other good freinds.Has got us along to a 25kite mega fly at Ainsdale,,,,,,,BDG mate,BDG.A few good people we missed and a few we didnt.They missed a realy good weekemd.

Anyway,i hope the Play went well for you Stephen.The backend of a donkey is a difficult part to play.so im told. .Good luck with it. ;):kid_devlish:

The North East lads are a pleasure tobe with.They realy did have no fear on Saturday.Ther Reved up,thats for sure.Ther gona come along again soon.While we pass the word along even more.

We would do our best to have a trip UP NORTH :wacko: .Ther is more NORTH and its enthusiastic.

We would be more than happy Stephen. Have you any dates in mind. I think Big Peter needs us to avoid one weekend in February (20th and 21st) so he can be part of it.

I've borrowed a picture to show part of the flying site (our local field). We would be to the right in an adjacent enclosed field.

Picture courtosy of Choccys album - I hope it's okay

I could'nt get to Bri's do but it looked really good. Will try and get to this one if possible, my mum lives 15 mins away and it's a very familiar landmark to me (Penshaw monument)

That'll be the geezer with the red hat - and he's still horse (edited by Bri for spilling ;) )

Fantastic weekend. I put another 700 miles on the car but it was so worthwhile. Really enjoyable to spend time flying with new and old friends and seeing how the skill levels are improving so quickly. Great fun.

The mega flies went well. We had several run throughs of the grid system - 20 in a 5 by 4 grid on Saturday afternoon was the largest. For most it was probably the first time that they'd got so up close and personal with the concept and all managed superbly. Thanks for putting up with my shouted gibberish :wacko:

Big thanks to Santa Bri and all your little helpers - we'll be back :)

Cheers all!

I remember Bristol 2008, I had not been flying revs very long but was camped a few rows down from your team on the camp site and saw you flying at the arena...saw evryone flying. was top. I would love to fly with the full decorators team at some point.

I'm sure that an opportunity will turn up soon.

We hope to be at quite a few events next year...

Brian and all.

Thought I must join the board to say what a great day I had on Saturday. Well worth the trip from the North East, thanks for letting me fly, a novice, with such a talented group of people.

However I must inform you I seem to have developed a bit of a bug I hope its not contagious the symptoms are

Aching arms, as if I've been pulling against something

Inclined head, as if been looking up.

A fixed gaze, fixed at about 120 foot.

A yearning/lust for a strange flying object.

Hope I've found part of the cure thanks to a "True Gent" on FracturedAxel who goes by the name of "oldflier" who was selling a Vented SLE, proceeds to Children in Need. I did the deal, deposited the money and kite received today. Now can't wait to get out at the weekend to fly it

All the best, and may the winds be good for you.

Chris

Well, Kev presented his LITTLE memento to Brian at the weekend.

One of Brians other hobbies when he's not flying is collecting Zippo lighters, so kev sorted him out a "special Zippo" & yes it really does work!

As kev said, oh behalf of everyone a BIG thanks Brian for all your effort in organising a great weekend.

Dave.

Wow Bri, you got a big un.

Cool prezzie, thanks for doing that Kev.

Bri, you be sure to take care if you ever light it indoors. Make sure thare are plenty of Fire Extinguishers about.

With a lighter that size you never know what might happen.
