    Rosebud Kite Festival 2019

    I have a Roller Derby match in Melbourne on the 9th. I might be able to extend the trip by a night to attend this 🙂
  4. Just the opposite - it is a gypsum lake rather than a salt lake. The surface (when dry) is like talcum powder. When damp is is like river mud - sucking the shoes off anyone who wades across it.

    The flex-capacitor is from the "Back To The Future" franchise.

    It was the tides that attracted me. I haven't made any commitments yet, so I am still flexible. Anyone want to suggest dates?

    NSW and Canberra Buggy Meet

    I'm thinking of doing a day-trip to Seven Mile Beach on Saturday the 16th of February. The low tide is at 18:29 with Sundown at 19:43. Anyone else interested?
  9. Good to hear you arrived safely. I am curious about the bike path between Kingston and Pinks Beach - when I was there last time (2 years now) there was a section of the path that had washed out due to a storm. Has the path been repaired? or is there still a diversion onto the roadway for a couple of hundred meters. See you in Yeppoon in April Bob

    Hi Jake, I haven't tried to fly in Canberra for quite a while either. The closest is this thread. I am hoping Tiger works out a date down the coast as both basketball and Roller Derby are starting to fill up my calendar again for 2019. I intent to head up to Yeppoon around Easter for that meeting, but will have to give Kingston a miss this year. Cheers BobM
  11. With all the hot weather of late, is there an update on the condition of the dry lake?

    Hello. newbie Q bout depower kites-

    I found the biggest hurdle to converting to depower was the need to wear a harness. With handles there was always a "let go of the handles" option when disaster struck. An 8M depower WILL LIFT YOU OFF THE GROUND. You need to learn not to fight the kite (as I tend to do with smaller kites) but to go-with-it a lot more. I still prefer setting everything up so that I am ready move (in the buggy) the moment I launch the kite. BobM

    If we go to seven mile beach then these places are good to check out https://www.mtview.com.au/ further way from the beach, but a great park with a pool talltimbers.com.au always looks busy so it must be good coastalpalms.com.au if mtview is full, i like to stay here In desperation I'll stay at a motel in Nowra

    No guarantees, but I am interested (I found out yesterday that an NBL game could be held in Canberra around Australia Day, so I have no doubt I'll be involved in that).
