  1. @nigel and @mik333 Still keen on a 20th/21st run?
  2. @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.

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

    2020 Vision at Kingston

    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!
  12. @igeighty and I have a couple of new additions too.......watch this space

    He’s been a stranger to the forum for a while but congratulations to @jaysmith and his newlywed Tania, who were married on Saturday. Congratulations to you both and all the very best to the future. Best wishes, @Mez and @igeighty
  14. 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?
  16. 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

    Ozone Access XT 4m SOLD

    Awesome - We'll all have to make a trip out to Tassie for a fly one day!
  19. @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
  20. Its the start of the season @Tiger37, so if you want to make a date in November, we will certainly make it down (its only a couple of hours for us, not a full days drive, and some!) Would be great to get out every weekend from now until Feb!
  21. @bakersdozen - might be a bit upset with that

    Last Ride for Jase

    When the wind fills our kites on the calmest of days, and my sail pulls on tight, I know I will look up, with a "good on ya Jase!" and rip up the beach!
  23. Anyone still wanting to make this a weekend? So far, the weather is predicted to be dry that weekend with some light rain due on Sunday. If we don't camp, we will certainly try and make a day trip on the Saturday.
  24. So should we look in a couple of days over that weekend? Friday 25th - Monday 28th October (So that the interstaters can make the most of it?)
  25. KINGSTON S.E 2019 Its that time again everyone, to start planning the main event of the Extreme Kites Group. (Correct me if I'm wrong @.Joel as the earliest thread I can see dates 2003) For the last 15 years, kiters have got together for the meet of the year and the best way to start the year with a catch up in Kingston S.E in South Australia. Kiters come from all corners of the country from Experience, WA to Canberra, ACT to buggy the long stretch of beach from The Blackford Drain up to the Granites, or if the weather is perfect, a ride out on the Lake Nadzab aka The Clay Pan. Members usually stay at the Kingston Foreshore Caravan Park for the duration of their trip, a fully equipment park with unpowered/powered sites, basic/delux cabins and decent bathroom and kitchen facilities and on Australia Day, put on a fantastic Ariel kite display for the general public. This is a non-organised event, it just happens as a way to celebrate a great meet up. This year, myself and @igeighty, along with @roblukin are planning on a slightly longer trip over. Arriving onsite on Saturday 5th January 2019 and heading back home on Sunday 27th January 2019. (Of cause we don't expect everyone to stay for 3 weeks, but its general idea of the dates) We have already made our site bookings and are now on the exciting countdown until we can head over. So if each year you've ummed and arrred about heading over, do it and you'll find that you'll return again and again each year as we have. Looking forwards to seeing you all! Mez
