Well we should head to John Britten on Wednesday, Asto. Huge frontside and HUGE HUGE HUGE landing area! Great in a NW wind.

Yes, arrived at work this morning to find a great email from Spencer saying the kinetics had arrived with some pics attached. They may arrive during the DS week

Should be a nice NE wind on the Thursday, so you will still get to fly when you arrive

Your excited, I'm leaving 2 kids (5 and 2) at home with their mum while I spend a week flying gliders in another country. I can't believe it's happening.

Alex have you taken next week off work?

I did a test pack of the box this arvo and all fits really well. I thought I scored with a suitcase with wheels for five bucks from the opp shop. they were great when the box was empty but with all the weight the coreflute sagged! I'll have to put a propper frame in there tomorrow.

With any luck I will bring a gopro as well with head strap.
You can borrow it when I am not using it myself.
See you there mate.
