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.sunderlandevents.co.uk/event-detail.asp?EventID=2216 or pm me and I'll get one to you.

It is a very good festival. The Decs first attended in 1989 and apart from 1995 and 1997 we were there every year up to 2000. I think that I turned up in 2001 but unfortunately the rest of the team couldn't travel at the last minute for one reason or another.

We should be eight or possibly nine fliers this year so it looks like a sixteen person grid is on the cards.

All being well we can build on the Ainsdale and Penshaw foundations <grins>

I know, apart from when they were taking out my appendix and wouldn't let me out of the hospital I haven't missed this event since the mid 1990's.

However, i will console myself with a trip to Portugal to fly with Lung Ta and The Flying Squad. Don't feel too sorry for me! :kid_smartass:

Edit: was hoping my lil' order from Los Hermanos would arrive before I left but sadly won't be the case 002_sad.gif

Chris,

It looks like forecast conditions have moderated for Sunday and the wetness will be over night Saturday. Could still be a bit breezy on Saturday. Not Zen weather I think.
