Harden 2018

I'll have to check my diary.  I know I have to be back in Canberra by 5pm.

Be wary of using the buggy in the air field - there are many tyre destroying burrs that will give you three flat tyres before you get up to speed.  The airstrip in the middle is fine and burr-free, but the wind needs to be in the right direction.

Thanks for the heads up @BobM

@Tiger37 - The colours in your photos are stunning!

It was lovely to see you again and to meet Pauline and Winston. I hope that they come on more visits. 

The last photo of my train is lovely! Its a Robert Brassington "Star of Lois" Train. Each kite stands taller than my mere 5"1.

Great day and lovely to see old friends from the Extreme Kites community. Not much wind but had a short session in the buggy. Such a shame that traffic control when we left was non existent and it took an hour and a half to get out!!

 

Sad that I missed you.  I was there in the morning and left around lunch time.  If you follow the event on Facebook, there seems to be a lot of feedback regarding traffic. I think the organizers were overwhelmed by the sheer number of people who showed up to this event.  It was certainly the largest (people-wise) that I have been to.

I decided not to fly any kites on the day as I am currently carrying a shoulder injury (due to doing a youngster's sport in an oldster's body)

Cheers

      11am to 5pm on October 15 is the Harden Kite Festival.  Harden is situated in NSW about 100km North West of Canberra.  There are lots of events, market stalls and competitions planned for the day.  Website here: http://hardenkitefestival.org/  From the looks of Google maps it's a very open and large area to fly in and there appears to be more than enough room for some buggying or landboarding too.   
      I could be talked into a road trip.....

      Situated about 100km North West of Canberra is Harden, which plays host to the Harden Kite Festival.  With competitions, market stalls and a large open area there'll be lots to see and do.  Did I mention the big open area?  Looks like there would be plenty of room for some buggying.  From 11am to 5pm on Saturday October 15th.
