Lets hope its a good day and decent winds
Sorry, not this time. It clashes with our family reunion BBQ extravaganza. Can't miss that!
For anyone else thinking of going, it's a good event to attend.
Funny that I mentioned that event only yesterday to someone, last time I went there.. there was early morning mist/cloud & my white kite was flying in the clouds and water was streaming down my kite line.
Sorry its late Mark, thought I had posted a reply. However as everywhere the winds were on the light side but overall it was the best Capstone for many a year. We were bathed in sunshine all day and it was very well attended by the public.
There were more attractions this year with a demonstration by the Essex Dog Team of what can be achieved with rescue dogs plus bouncy castles and Children's rides. KKF did well with their kite stall and by the afternoon the sky was full of Children's kites.
However the day for club flyers started slow with light zero's & Ninja's until 11 ish when there was enough wind to launch the lifters on light line but it was up and down for a while. Brighton flyers put up their Zimmerman Dragon and the PL Crocodile while I persevered with my 1.5 & 2mtr koi fish and eventually the 4mtr koi. The Kent flyers, a dozen or so all told flew some very nice deltas and stick kites as well as line laundry and inflatables. An excellent day and great meeting up with the Kent guys again. Hope we can do it again next year.
