[bSuffolk Kite Flyers Big Birthday Bash![/b]

Suffolk Kite Flyers will be celebrating its 20th birthday this year so we thought that requires some celebrations!

This is an event organised by flyers for flyers, all disciplines welcome, whatever you fly.

This weekend will be based on the legendary open weekenders that we run throughout the summer but bigger, better and whole lot more fun!

We are please to announce that the 2nd round of the BKSA Freestyle Championships will be held at the weekend which will bring the top Freestyle Power Kiters from the UK and all over Europe to Rougham Airfield!

Rougham Airfield | Suffolk Kite Flyers Club

We are also going to be having live music on the Saturday evening along with some fantastic pyrotechnics to really celebrate our 20th Birthday! (TBC)

A bar and marquee will be onsite all weekend for liquid refreshments. We will also be doing a big pot of Chilli or similar in the evenings and will have a BBQ lit for anyone to use (bring your own meat!).

This is going to be a great weekend for all of the family and we welcome everyone to come along and celebrate with us.

Prices:
Camping only - £10 each
Camping with flying - £15 each
Camping (family) - £20 (2 x adults, 3 x kids)
Details & online payment
A £5/person day pass can be purchased on the day (subject to availability)

Yeah, it's a shame, we were hoping to have it on different weekend but the landlord is being difficult :roll:

I agree - a straight line IS the most direct route to the bar :wink: Tickets booked (even our lass is coming to this one!) Can't wait.

Friday night there will be a fish & chip van attending on-site so if you want you can buy fish & chips or you can bring some food along to cook on the BBQ.
Saturday night Suffolk Kite Flyers will be cooking up a big pot of Chilli and will also be lighting the BBQ so feel free to bring along some food and cook on the BBQ.
"Lucky Jango", a four piece cover band, will be playing a range of indie/rock covers for all tastes, from 70s to modern day.
Once it gets dark you will be treated to a custom designed full on fireworks display to celebrate Suffolk Kite Flyers 20th Birthday!
A bar will be in attendance with a selection of your finest beverages

Fantastic weekend. Aching all over...

We set off at 5am in the morning, pitched up by 9am, first beer at 10am, then flying till we dropped from exhaustion. Got to say that the Suffolk Kite Flyers did a EXCELLENT job with a perfect location, great band, a fireworks display that surprised all, great food, a bar. Great job.

The power kiters of all nationalities filled the sky and I got to say I really enjoyed watching them pull off some amazing stunts off a ramp set up. As for dual liners a perfectly mowed arena fenced off from the main buggy action. The wind was a bit strong, the weather was overcast but spoilt nothing.

But a small rant - it would have been nice to have seen more support amongst us trick flyers for what Yan and his club organised. There was three of us, amongst a field of 60+ power kiters....with there cool camper vans...pumping out cool music...making the effort to attend something...hint hint....

Plenty of people might have attended if it hadn't been the same weekend at Weston-Super-Mare festival and a STACK round, can't me in two places at once unfortunately.
