Sorry, full of cold, and as much as I want to fly, the thought of standing in a field for hours in my current state, means i've opted for the sofa today lol
Next time guys :)

You were missed plod. Had a great day though, even if I did spend my time in the rev corner! Great to see some familiar faces and a fair few new ones!

A cracking day well worth the travelling time. Great to see familiar faces and even better to meet a few new ones. The curry, as always Steve, was sublime -10/10. Absolutely knackered now but gonna sleep with a grin on my face.

Agreed. Great day out and a really good opportunity to other people's kites out.

Got the chance to fly a Vendetta, which has always been on my wish list of things to do. Thanks, Harv. :)

Even got the opportunity to do a Superfly and Dynamite head to head, even if the SF wasn't quite stock. ;)

The SF cyniques stupid easy. Even I managed a couple :thumbsup:

The curry was excellent, Steve. Just wondering whether that Labrador's owners are enjoying a repeat performance of it. :badgrin:

FWIW - I too proper enjoyed that little excursion... Good to see y'all & nice to see my little naughty corner increasing in numbers too (albeit only slightly) :-) Sorry had to bail out early - T-Shirt & Wind Shirt only is not an ideal clothing combination for protecting the body against a mid winter easterly breeze - got proper cold I did. Can we do it again in the summer plz ??

I'm not surprised. I had four thermal layers on and still needed to resort to jacket and beanie later on.

Summer's difficult for me, Steve, as sailing takes precedence, but no reason why the rest of you can't get together.

Sounds like it's worth the trip for curry alone :)
