  1. To my fellow kinsman, all the best to you. Please do not become a stranger. We hope to see you out and about. All the best, Mez xxx
  2. Canceled as the wind has completed changed! Strong easterlies now.
  3. Hey all, I haven’t posted on here for AGES! @igeighty and myself are heading down for a weekend Buggy & Blokart at Sandy Point (arriving Saturday and having a fly Sunday & Monday) Anyone else keen?
  4. Sorry Mark, I did t see you’re post. Looks like you had fun. What’s the camping situation down there now. The park was planning to sell off the camping area.
  5. Might come down for a day trip at least
  6. After a fabulous time over in SA, we've both got the feel again to be back in the buggy and blofly. With the COVID situation settling here in Victoria, what about re-booting a speed week? Thoughts?

    Kingston 2021

    Well Kingston SE 2021 is almost coming to an end for @igeightyand I. We’ve managed to get a buggy and a sail on both the beach and the Clay Pan this year. Both were in excellent condition. Lots of people in town this year, this year’s trip has coincided with the annual fishing competition, which means for two days, the beach is out of bounds, the Victorian Blokart Club have returned and a new arrival this year have been a 4x4 club with an expected attendance of roughly 400 vehicles. I’m sitting here in our annex and for the first time since we arrived, the rain is gently falling, @jhn.holgateand @Angus Johnstonewere venturing out to the pan, hopefully it’s not too sticky for them. This year’s attendance role :- @Mez @igeighty @roblukin@jhn.holgate @Angus Johnstone @Grants @BobM @Darren Tibbey @The Duke@AliNev and Most of the SA crew! Dougie Dougie Rob Dougie Rob Dougie Mez Mez
  9. I vaguely recall it was @OBEwan playing the music wasn’t it @jhn.holgate?
  10. Wind depending (and of cause restrictions lift) How does the 21st November sound for you all? @igeighty @jhn.holgate @nigel@bakersdozen @OBEwan @Angus Johnstone @.Joel @The Duke
  11. Awesome job @Angus Johnstone When this lockdown lifts, hopefully you can make it out for a buggy run with us! Might have to pull an over nighter at Sandy Point!
  12. I just got butterflies in my stomach from the excitement of possible dates!.......The Blow-fly will need a service!

    Kingston 2021

    Hey @Kozzie, Kingston SE in an annual trip over to South Australia mid January with most of the Victorian's (and a handful from NSW and ACT and one WA) heading over to have a couple of weeks flying, buggying, chasing me in my blo-fly (Land Yacht) etc. But with the current boarder closures, it might be on hold for a while. All the best Mez

    Happy Birthday

    Happy Birthday @igeighty - Have a great day!
  15. Sorry @KaoS - I missed this post before posting my own "reach out" Hoping you and Mrs. Kaos are both well? It seems as though your lockdowns are a little different than Victoria's, seeing some kite flying in SA obeying social distancing. Victorian police are fining anyone who shouldn't be out. Essential Shopping, Education/Work, Exercise and Medical are the only activities we are allowed to attend. Exercise....I wonder if taking Tula the 38 Trilobite out for a walk is classified exercise? We're blessed with a big garden to keep us busy, but also blessed with the tall trees, so no garden flying. Stay safe, be strong, and KEEP SMILING Mez

    Reaching out...

    I just wanted to reach out and wish everyone good health and keep smiling. Share your stories if you’re bored, you know we’d love to hear them. All the best to you all From Mez and Doug (@igeighty)
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. @nigel and @mik333 Still keen on a 20th/21st run?
  23. Due to the weather, this event has been moved to Sunday 8th December - all details remain the same.
  24. 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?)

    Bye Dad.

    Best wishes and our love to you all. Time for a Jim Buggy Day!
