Peterborough Kite Festival 9th June 2013

As always where ever GOKF are, you are welcomed with great warmth and freindship and this year we had something extra special. Wind without the addition of that wet stuff and a great festival was put on. The sky was decked in colour with kites of all shapes and sizes. It was a fantastic show and with its central location and good road connections attracted club flyers from Avon, Midlands, Kent, Suffolk, Norfolk, Essex and probably other areas I havent mensioned.

 Essex Kite Group  in the form of Mark T, Marc B, Keith M, Courtney & Lynn, John & June, Wendy, Ernie & Sandra Put on great displays with their enthusiastic efforts showing various artistic kites in the ring.
Mark T came a very close second in the altitude challenge a very subjective judgement.
John showed off his new Derick Kunne Sled & Fledd with his 20mtr Turbine supported by his Flowforn 6
Marc B had his pterradactil showing its fine lines. Courtney in his usual way hand flying various kites made contact with members of the public promoting the pleasures of kite flying. Keith & Mark T decorated the sky with their sleds and kite laundry while Ernie excercised his cat and dog inflatables on one flowform 6 lifter and his parrots & frog on the other lifter, with the string of crows at the bottom of the field. Not forgetting Wendy flying her home made plastic fighter type kites and a very nice triangular box.
an excellent day for all.
