Morena Klausgaard Hi everybody πŸ™‚
I'm working with a Yorkshire based children's charity and I'm hoping to pitch a kite festival in late summer/early autumn to the board.
Would it be plausible to try to organise one for this year already, or would I be better off planning for next year?
Also, is the weather likely to be an issue?
Any and all suggestions are more than welcome πŸ™‚

Tom Robinson How can i tell if my rev kite has stretched? only about 2 weeks old, took it out this morning at 12-15mph but it gusted like 25 a couple of times (at which point i tried to keep at the edge of the window). must have only flown 20 mins and noticed the bungees were stretched quite a bit so i tightened them, but how can i check whether the sail itself has stretched? am i being paranoid!17.03.2017 at 09:56 amLike

Michael Lewis Very sad news about Joe Barnes. Gwen has posted a notice on the NKG website and I've copied it here:

"Sadly, Joe Barnes passed away on Thursday Jan 5th 2017.

For those who knew him, Joe was a lovely, friendly, gentle man. A kite flying enthusiast, who made many of his own kites. Both Joe and his wife Flo were long time members of the NKG and attended the AGM's year after year. During the Summer months Joe and Flo set off to the various Kite events, in their Camper Van and were known to members of other kite clubs up and down the country. Sadly Flo died in 2015.

I have fond memories of Joe, who was responsible for introducing me to the wonderful world of kites."

Tony Dane A sad day, we have lost a true Gentleman who has been seen around a number of the North of England's kite festivals in recent years, he will be sadly missed.

Stephen his eldest son has posted a photograph on the Pallas Family Flyers Facebook page with the following comment:

We have lost a great ambassador of the love of kites. Arthur Pallas my father, passed away 2 days ago from a short battle with cancer. He always wanted to see a kite in the sky, even if there wasn't any wind. He will be sorely missed by everyone. So fill the sky with kites, because he's still watching us fly.

Sue Storey I went to Beverley Westwood today to fly kite for peace during One Sky One Wolrd day. I flew my Levitation Delta with and without its Dynamic Spreader (which helps the kite when the wind is gusty) the Yorkshire Flowform and lastly the 2M Dopero Drone. I had been having problems with the kites not flying straight. I can't make the Levitation fly straight but adjusting the bridle on the other two makes then fly well.
I have bought a Canon SX170is camera and am in the process of testing a Canon script for David Sykes - master of the art.
These were two photos from today. I had decided to fly the camera on the Flowform when I saw the herd of cows arriving. They were faster than I was so I had to follow them to get the straight down photos I wanted . I was out there for more than 3 hours enjoying seeing the kites fly in the sun. Arrived home just before sunset.

Andy Robbins I've recently moved to West Yorkshire and wonder if anyone knows any flying sites in the Wetherby area. I'm just looking for somewhere to fly a stunt kite and a modestly sized parafoil. Hopefully there is somewhere fairly close so that I can pop out to fly at short notice.
Thanks for any advice

Leonard Royles New Event.

We have been asked to support the annual festival at High Crompton Park, Shaw near Oldham on Saturday 3rd of September with a field full of kites. The park is a typical delightful small town park with well laid out gardens and features.
We have a field (approximately two football pitches side by side) to ourselves next to the main festival event field. There are toilets available at the adjacent bowling green. Usual festival food stalls and the North Star Inn across the road.

We will be able to take our vehicles onto the flying field periphery but not onto the field itself. It has suffered damage from vehicles in the past and Oldham Council are very sensitive over this. They are arranging a roll-out hard standing for our vehicles to move on and/or park on.

There is going to be a kite making workshop on the adjacent field so we will be flying in our own staked arena. Usual Northern Kite Flying rules apply. Height limit is the usual 60m. No-one to fly outside of the arena.

Kite Fliers are to meet at the small car park opposite the North Star Inn along Rushcoft Road. Post Code OL2 7PR. We need to be there for 10am The roll-out road surface should be in position by then and fliers will be escorted to a parking position on the edge of the field. All vehicle movements with Hazards on.

Due to the requirement to pack up the roll-out road we will be asked to move off the field at 3.30pm so end of flying by 3pm.
This is a Northern Kite Group Event and the group are receiving a significant contribution from Oldham Council for attending. This money will be used to help fund the end of season event, so we need your support if you are able to attend.
I appreciate that this appears to be a last minute event but it would be good to see a good turn out, as it may lead to bigger things in Oldham for the future.

The Council require our car registration details so can all intending attendees please email Len with their details on tnkg@len-royles.co.uk or message via Facebook etc. Any questions please get in touch.

Look forward to seeing you there.


Driving instructions:

Rushcoft Road. Shaw. Oldham. Post Code OL2 7PR

It might be more direct from M62 to come off at J20 and come down from Oldham but I have no experience of that route so:

From M62 J20 take A627(M) to junction with A663 (Royton, Shaw). Follow the A663 through its various road names, Broadway, Shaw Rd, Crompton Way to junction with B6194. Turn Right to B6194 (Rochdale). Follow the B6194 up the hill, past High Crompton Post Office to a mini-roundabout, take the right to Rushcroft Road. Continue along past the Church and School to skirt past park and car park on left and then take next left (also Rushcroft Rd) and continue to small car park opposite North Star Inn.

If coming from the south on M60 then junction 21 to A663 (Chadderton) and follow A663 Broadway to meet up with previous route.

Leonard Royles We have been asked to support the annual Open Day at Hoylake RLNI on Bank Holiday Monday, 29th. August with a beach full of kites. We will be flying within a staked and roped arena on the beach alongside the promenade. We will be able to take our vehicles onto the beach to the flying area.

There is some sensitivity with regard to the numbers of vehicles allowed onto the beach so if you are thinking of attending please let me know at tnkg@len-royles.co.uk or via Facebook messenger so that I can notify the organisers. (No need for those folk who already know about it and have already discussed it with me).

The Promenade (North Parade) will be closed to all traffic from 8.00am till 6.00pm. This closure starts at King's Gap and reaches all the way to Hoyle Road.

We will access the beach from the Hoyle Road checkpoint. The Stewards at the end of Hoyle Road will allow us to pass and guide us through to the West Slip at the Lifeboat Station up till 10.00am. Please ensure that you are there before 10:00am because no kite flier traffic will be allowed after that time. Be prepared to show your membership cards at the barrier. All vehicle movements to be done at walking pace with hazards on. We are on the beach till the road reopens at 6pm. Please be aware that this is a big event and it could take a while for the traffic to clear.

Please see the map at : https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ok-MVlwPP8ZPXwESEQ6rA7RYO58&usp=sharing but note that the kite flying arena may be adjusted to suit the beach and wind conditions. We have been assured that if anyone gets into difficulties due to soft sand etc. the RLNI will be on hand to sort us out.

There are attended toilets in a block just a short walk up the prom at the bowling green, also some across the road from the Lifeboat Station at the local community centre. There will also be Portaloos all along the promenade.

There will be the usual food outlets on the promenade and there is also a beer festival taking place at the community centre.

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the largest charity that saves lives at sea around the coasts of the UK, Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man as well as on some inland waterways. They have also been known to rescue fly-away Manta Rays! So it would be great if we could put on a big display for them.

Look forward to seeing you there.


Driving instructions:

From the M53 follow the Moreton Spur to the roundabout, take Upton Rd (signed A551 Moreton) and follow into Moreton centre to a roundabout, take left (signed A553 Hoylake), follow this road (Hoylake Rd. then Birkenhead Rd.) though into Hoylake. Continue till just past Esso garage on left and take Hoyle Road on right (signed Hoylake Community Centre). There will be road closed ahead signs at the beginning. At the barrier, contact stewards who should guide you to the West slipway.

Pat May St Annes Kite Festival

We welcome all fliers to St. Annes Kite Festival on the 30th and 31st July. This year we are on both sides of the pier, with the Al - Farsi team on the Blackpool side and everyone else where we were last year. The lifeboat carpark, FY81SJ, is the nearest one to the beach. As usual everyone who attends will have a contribution toward travel costs.

On Saturday night there is a free evening meal and entertainment at St Annes Cricket club FY8 2RQ for all fliers.

Please can you also email to confirm attending the meal as need to let the chef know how many.

If you need to use your vehicle on the beach as an anchor then please email your name and surname, your vehicle make, model and registration number to patmay8@hotmail.com or via facebook. I have kept your details from last year so if still same just let me know 'same.'

Closing date for letting me know beach access is 8/7/2015. No vehicle will be allowed on the beach without having passed on their details. Please also bring your car insurance information as the council may ask for it (I doubt it but you can never tell with the council!)

Cars will access the beach at the lifeboat station FY81SJ on the day. Passes will not be handed out but the council will check each vehicle as they drive on. If you are not on the list, sorry they will not let you on.

Please note all vehicles need to be on the beach by 10:00am with a kiters briefing at 10:30 and no vehicle allowed to leave before 5pm.

Finally there is limited space for caravans, camper vans etc at St Annes Cricket Club and they can arrive from Monday 25th July. Priority will be given to those who stayed last year and Jim Potts is organising 07860822211 . If we don't put up awnings there will be more room to squeeze extra caravans in. Alternatively there is overnight parking for camper vans at the lifeboat car park.
Hope to see you all there.
Happy days.
Pat and all the team.

Dave Bleasdale Many, many thanks to all the fliers who came to Bridlington at the weekend. You all made it a great weekend despite the challenging wind conditions at times, big thumbs up to you all.
Hopefully we will be back there again next year.
