Northern Monkey Kite Group Filey 2015

DATES FOR FILEY 2015

Well here they are guys. As in the past we are going to hold two fly meets at Filey this year.

Filey 7 June 26th, 27th and 28th
Filey 8 September 11th, 12th and 13th.

These are informal fly meets which we hope will attract trick kite flyers from not just the UK but from far and wide. We will again use the Filey Brig Campsite but we cannot stress enough the importance of booking in advance particularly if you have a motor home and are planning the September visit. The site always fills up for this weekend. The usual format for the meetings will be ...

Friday...Arrive by midday. Get pitched and flying by mid afternoon.
Friday evening...Group BBQ, Beer followed by more cliff top flying.
Saturday ....Group breakfast, followed by more flying (practice for trick out comp)
Saturday afternoon following lunch we will have a trick out competition.
Saturday evening will be a curry night followed by more flying and then beers etc.
Sunday. BBQ breakfast, flying and then depart site by about 12 midday.

As previously stated our Filey meets are just an informal meeting of like minded kite junkies. The meetings have been a lot of fun in the past and we look forward to meeting not only our regular members but some new faces as well.

Thanks for checking out this post. More details will follow as the event gets nearer. If you have any questions please send a PM or wack a comment on this post. Smooth winds to all.

Well with snow predicted for tomorrow it's always good to be talking about a kite meet hopefully in some sunshine.
I'm in for both dates. Hopefully we will continue to attract some new faces as well as the regulars. :D

I'll say a maybe on this for June, probably right up until the last minute again, but will not be driving up on Friday evening ever again ever in a million years. Christ I need to forget that experience! I'll take a holiday day and set off early as I have enough grey hairs already!

Nice one Mark. :D If the weather looks good a few of us will be traveling up on the Thursday afternoon so that we are all pitched up and can make the most of Friday. So if traveling up on the Thursday would suite you better then at least you know someone will already be on site.

Two months and counting down to the June meeting. Information is that at least 4 people are going to be on site on Thursday. Thursday nights meal I believe is a fish and chip supper in Filey.:D In about 4 weeks we will need to establish confirmed numbers primarily so the meals for the Saturday curry night can be prepared.

With only two weeks to go to the first meet Ive put the shout out on NMKG facebook page for numbers for the Saturday curry so I can get them made up. If you are thinking of coming and will be their on the Saturday night and want a curry then please send me a PM so I can get you on the list. Thanks.

Cheers Jon. The weather thus far has been terrible. We have hardly flown together this year, maybe three times which is unusual for us.
A meet up would be good but it's so difficult to plan ahead when the weather is so unpredictable.

Think I've flown twice all year so far. On the odd occasions it hasn't been too windy, family suff has had to take priority.

Not sure my flying is getting any better, but I still enjoy chilling out flying. Just need to do it more often.

Well were on our way today. Wish us luck. Four days of chill time with the kites. Weather doesn't look too bad. Plenty of sunny spells but a chance of some light rain on Friday morning and Sunday afternoon, but we all know that can change at the drop of a hat after all this is England :D :D . We will get some pictures up later. Cheers for now.
