Don’t forget! Bike and Kite festival on Saturday!

Just a quick reminder – the bike and kite festival (official page) starts tomorrow (Saturday June 14th & 15h) at 11am – 4pm. It should be a great day, the weather is looking not completely disastrous, although the BBC weather site seems to be getting less optimistic by the hour. An umbrella might be a wise accessory, along with a camera, so that you can send me a photo or two to brighten up the Bugle.

If you’ve got friends coming, tell them not to drive, as there is no parking laid on, and parking is a nightmare at the best of times in Blackheath (so much so that in my more anarchic moments I’ve considered posting a cut-out-and-keep fake parking permit especially for Bugle readers… maybe another time).

I’m personally looking forward to the news that:

Former UK Experienced Pair Champions: Husband and wife Allan and Marilyn Pothecary, also known as Close Encounters, will be demonstrating various exhibition displays.

Makes me smile for some reason. Did they used to be experienced, but they’re not any more? It must be some sort of kiting lingo that I’m not familiar with…

(The youtube clip isn’t me, just an example of the many youtube clips on kite flying in Blackheath).
