I'm really looking forward to it!

Might need to put a wheel/brake on it then

Might have to try a landing technique I heard of - approach at speed then whack full aileron on to slow down

who will have other planes as well

When I key in the word "Festish" into Google, I get very different sites to this one???

Funny that.

Just had an Idea hit me in the back of the head . Most who attended last year will remember the hand launch antics in front of the cabin on the quite day . How about
hand launch comp for Alua's ? it would be a morning event before the wind come on
Longest flight time best of 3 launches max flight time say 5 minutes on the clock .
could be good for a laugh I know aston cracl his first thermal there and was stoked about it so specking them out from the hand launch is completely doable. Whatcha think ? we could even do it in own design as well to a strict span limit though. Idea's thoughts? Some good idea's on the link Stu thanks.

Where is my "good at doing artwork on the computer" gene. Hmmm, I am sure it is with my "good at doing any artwork" gene.

Jezz is that the time.
Here's a couple of ideas (well, 1 in 3 different colours)
only the gold and black goes down onto whatever coloured t-shirt you like so it would be easy (and prob. cheap) to print
Feedback very welcome. It can easily be changed

Have you got a printer sorted? Talking to a customer yesterday and figured out he does shirt printing for a living. Let me know if you want a quote
