I propose a get together

Sun Jul 01, 2018 9:20 am

So the sun is playing its part this summer and for once it feels like we can stop moaning about the bad weather for flying in the UK.

I propose a get together, like the enjoyable ones we used to have at Hinckley. It has been way too long. I miss those days. You could learn more in an afternoon than months of lonely flying. Was also a great opportunity to check out new kites, put faces to names and just have a blast.

Can't help but feel that the UK scene needs a kick up the ass, and it needs us all to make an effort and travel to wherever maybe chosen.

Anyone interested? No is not an option 8)

If this is in reasonable reach of Essex and I’m free 100% up for a meet. I’d love to learn how to fly properly.

I'm always up for a fly meet.  No idea whether Hinckley is still a sensible area to meet up, but it is as afar as I would want to travel for a single day's flying (~ 2 hours from Manchester).  Probably a bit far from Essex, I would have thought, Frayz.

Out of interest, is anyone in the Essex area that would like to meet up and maybe educate me on some freestyle delta flying?
