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.
