    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!
  3. 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 g

    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)
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. @nigel and @mik333 Still keen on a 20th/21st run?
  11. Due to the weather, this event has been moved to Sunday 8th December - all details remain the same.
  12. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. until
    ** 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 l
  16. 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.
  17. And to think the two days before, that beach was unusable !!! As usual, a great video @bakersdozen
  18. They arrived and took up the WHOLE entire lounge room space, and then some!
  19. 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!
  20. @igeighty and I have a couple of new additions too.......watch this space
  21. 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
  22. I finish on the 20th as does @igeighty so we're certainly up for a pre-christmas run!
  23. @Bill, I hope @jhn.holgate is behaving himself?
  24. 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!
  25. 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
