  4. Bye Dad.

    @.Joel, we're only just "down the road" should you need us. Certainly looking forwards to a buggy and a gyros. All our love
  5. eBay & Gumtree Finds

    My first "buy" from Gumtree and this week I will obtain an un-used Prism Nexus Stunt kite. Couldn't say no to the $10 price tag! Thank You @Bill who will "do the deal" for me (might not be un-used by the time it gets to me - go on...have a fly) Proper Job!
  6. 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

  12. Bye Dad.

    I hope it is not out of place to say that we attended Jim's farewell on Wednesday. Very beautiful, very emotional. The church was full, with lots of love and appreciation for such a special man. Let's organise a fly day to celebrate our wonderful memories of Jim.
  13. NSW and Canberra Buggy Meet

    We will try
  14. Bye Dad.

    Lovely tribute Kevin
  15. Bye Dad.

    To you all, our heart felt condolences. Jim was a cuddle bear whenever we'd see each other and I will miss his bubbly personality and his chuckle. May he Rest in Peace that gentle man.
  16. I love that trip - especially with the pub meal at Tea Gardens
  17. Back in 2014, the same question was asked on the forum by @Hurls10802 With a lot of research by @jdhot and updates by @crazy, this was the last known outcome.... So I would assume that if no-one has brought the case up again, this decision would still be in place, but in true Aussie style though, you're only in trouble if you get caught. Just apologies and plead ignorance. One rule we have in the kiting hobby (and land yachting), do not argue with officials (or the public), otherwise you could do it all for all kiting areas across Australia. Just smile and take your leave.
  18. Some film from Kingston 2017

    I must have some effect on him
  19. Tread Marks @ Speed Week 2018

    Oh no - That’s not a good end to a good run. We hope you are okay and not too bad.
  20. Some film from Kingston 2017

    LOL - @SoutherlyBuster, @igeighty is an Aussie born and bred!
  21. Tread Marks @ Speed Week 2018

    Winds not looking as strong as predicted down there. It's calm and dry back home. I hope it's a reflection of the day down with you all to get a good fly day in.
  22. Tread Marks @ Speed Week 2018

    And from the look of it on the radar, a good lightning display!
  23. Tread Marks @ Speed Week 2018

    Might come down on a day trip over the long weekend with the drones.
  24. Tread Marks @ Speed Week 2018

    Sorry to have to say that @igeighty and I have pulled out from the trip. @roblukin is on his way down, left here 20 minutes ago so should be there around 2-2:30pm Doug slipped another disc which pretty much has rendered him useless. Up until last night we were planning on coming down to fly the drones but he made the decision that it would be better to look after his back (finally) so it will be sorted by Kingston S.E Hope you all catch some wind and look after yourselves in the wild weather!
