    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.

    No.2!!! Congratulations, you kept that quiet!!!! Robyn passed away last Australia Day and since then her family were selling off a lot of Sandy Grove's property. I wish I could have homed her guinea fowl. @jhn.holgate - We will be arriving on the 18th and I'll pack the bike.
  7. @nigel and @mik333 Still keen on a 20th/21st run?
  8. @Tiger37 has got the ball rolling with the thoughts of speed week and this week end, we came out of hibernation and over dinner, myself, @igeighty, @the_hatmanand @Bill had a chat. Tides and weather permitting we all thought that the weekend before or after the footy may be the go, when its not too busy, but looking at the tides, Friday 25th October has a good low tide mid afternoon. So the seed has been planted, have a look at your tide charts and your work calendar and pop a few suggestions down. @roblukin, @bakersdozen, @.Joel, @mik333, @DrWind, @OBEwan, @Clive, @nigel, @BobM, @Darren Tibbey, @The Duke, @cris italy

    ** 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

    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?)

    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 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.
  15. And to think the two days before, that beach was unusable !!! As usual, a great video @bakersdozen
  16. They arrived and took up the WHOLE entire lounge room space, and then some!

    Not sure on our dates yet John, but we are booked in from 11th - 27th January. We've a collection of single liners steadily growing so it will be great to have those in the air - great for when it's no good to buggy! Looking forwards to it!
  18. @igeighty and I have a couple of new additions too.......watch this space

    Congratulations...

  20. I finish on the 20th as does @igeighty so we're certainly up for a pre-christmas run!

    Flysurfer 4m Peak 2 SOLD

    @Bill, I hope @jhn.holgate is behaving himself?
  22. We're so frustrated that the weather changed sooo much over 12 hours! But work is where the money is made. Glad you all had a great run!

    The keeper of kites.....

    Today will be our first kiting trip without our Maggie. As many of you know Maggie came on every trip/meet we attended so today will be very strange not having her with us and the beach will be that little bit lonely without her there, watching the buggy's go by. Not a day goes by when she is missed. So here's to you Maggie Moo, the keeper of kites xxx

  25. @roblukin arrived safety yesterday afternoon. Not sure if he's heading down today (Friday) but we will all be at Sandy for sure on Saturday/Sunday (even if its just for a catch up and a land sail) See you over the weekend @mik333
