    Thinking of you all!

    Sorry @KaoS - I missed this post before posting my own "reach out" Hoping you and Mrs. Kaos are both well? It seems as though your lockdowns are a little different than Victoria's, seeing some kite flying in SA obeying social distancing. Victorian police are fining anyone who shouldn't be out. Essential Shopping, Education/Work, Exercise and Medical are the only activities we are allowed to attend. Exercise....I wonder if taking Tula the 38 Trilobite out for a walk is classified exercise? We're blessed with a big garden to keep us busy, but also blessed with the tall trees, so no garden flying. Stay safe, be strong, and KEEP SMILING Mez

    Reaching out...

    I just wanted to reach out and wish everyone good health and keep smiling. Share your stories if you’re bored, you know we’d love to hear them. All the best to you all From Mez and Doug (@igeighty)

    Rosebud Kite Festival

    We've been quite quiet on the forum lately but I thought to fill you all in with what's been going on with ourselves. Doug and I have taken a liking even more to the static flying and have been moving about the south east attending various kite festivals over the past couple of years. Yesterday we were flying at the 2020 Rosebud Kite Festival. This year the festival seemed to have lost its flare, but we still managed to have a kite or two in the air and got to hang out with the likes of fellow buggyer's @nigel and @The Duke. Its always nice to catch up with friends with like-minded hobbies. Doug and I now have a Facebook page called Clear Blue Kites where we have a few photos and videos posted. But for those of you who steer away from Facebook and all its politics, here are a few photos of our kites for you to enjoy. Up next...... 2020 Adelaide International Kite Festival

    Yep it's time for Yeppoon 2020.

    I think that sounds like a bloody great idea - not to forget Beachport now has us putting on an annual organised display - around about the 18th January. Speak with Ian at AKFA.

    Born Kites Long Star 2 and Control Bar

    Sorry to hear this Trevor. To all reading, Trevor looks after his kiting gear so you can be sure that Trevor's distribution of the kiting gear will be precise. Just sad that we will not buggy together again. All the best from us both

    Tribe of Trilobites

    Had to upload this photo. Tibbey's brother-in-law is a photographer and captured this excellent picture of the "Tamer" Here is "Blob Marley" and two of the white Trilobites. I think its a great photo.

    Victorian Flash Mob Kite Fly

    Thank you for approving the event @.Joel Here is the calendar link. It would be fabulous to have everyone with a kite in the air. Rather than end a year, let's start the kiting season....We have a couple of spare airbeds should anyone like to make a weekend out it, and a very big back yard for swags. (I wonder what Sandy Point is like on the Saturday?)

    Bye Dad.

    Best wishes and our love to you all. Time for a Jim Buggy Day!

    Victorian Flash Mob Kite Fly

    I have created an event for the next Dingley meet, which will be on Sunday 1st December (The VFMKF yearly wrap up) from 1pm until 5pm with a pub meal to follow. Once @.Joel can approve the post, I will share the link here.

    ** VICTORIAN FLASH MOB CHRISTMAS FLY ** ** DATE CHANGED FROM 1st DECEMBER TO 8th DECEMBER DUE TO THE WEATHER ** Dingley Spring Road Reserve https://www.facebook.com/events/2629300777133081/ Once again the Victorian Flash Mob Kite Flyers are organising a Christmas get-together fly, a chance for all static flyers (and dual/quad line flyers) to get together for a Christmas Flash Mob. A fantastic free event where the locals of the Kingston Council area come and leisurely walk through the park taking in the sights of the sky. Afterwards, we will head off for a meal at the local pub, which has a fabulous menu and in the past, been a lovely end to the day. With it being Christmas, bookings are essential for the meal, so please either RSVP via the Facebook link above, or if you're not on Facebook, comment below and I will pass on you reservations to the Mob admin team. Parking will be on the Spring Street, Dingley (Near to Seaton Drive end of the Reserve)

    Victorian Flash Mob Kite Fly

    I think with the "ownership" of all things posted, Facebook wants to take the credit so therefore would limit what you see without logging in, just like Pinterest. (That s**ts me to tears as I see a good activity to do with the kids at school but have to log in to get the activity instructions, so I was forced to make an account) The alternative is to replicate the events from the Flash Mob page to the forum.
