Northern Monkey Meet #2 - Sept 15th / 16th

Mon Aug 20, 2012 6:23 pm

The second Northern Monkey meet has been discussed and a date has been put up for Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September

For those who came last time I know that it was deemed a great weekend away and for those who didn't, go on try it - you just might enjoy it :-D

The venue is again at Filey, Yorkshire and we will be using the same campsite - It's called Filey Brigg Camping and Caravan site and postcode is YO14 9ET. It is a fantastic place to fly, either down on the beach or up on the cliffs.

So if you fancy flying, beer, BBQ and kite talk then get yourself here. Do not worry if you are a beginner (it's certainly not a case of 'look how good I am!') and you can try out a real mixed bag of kites to boot.

P.S Southerners welcome :P

Count me in as well. Think I might bring a big pot of curry for Saturday night if anyones interested. Should help the liquid refreshment go down.

Vindaloo or madras?


Whichever gives the optimum wind of 8-12 preferably.......

If I can get a few hours in this week I just might finish the Bzar '11 and have it ready for a maiden flight :shock:

Nice pictures Si. Hopefully Ian will have some more to post. It all went a bit too quick as these events often do. Great to see all the other kites that appeared once we started flying. I counted about 8 in the air at one time. Just one question. Who is that handsome B****rd doing the cooking.LOL.

Fantastic weekend but went too quick. Weather was superb.

The curry made by Steve is amongst the best I have ever had!

I will upload any pictures I have this evening. Roll on meet number 3....

Thanks for the curry compliments lads. Glad you enjoyed it. Definately need to think about extending the time on site particularly in the summer time with the lighter evenings. Serious consideration should be given for Ians idea of arriving Friday evening and stopping till late on Sunday. What do you think?
