Hello to all my fellow clinic victims I was wondering has anybody started looking at accommodation?
Hopefully get some replys, it would be nice to hang and chill with some like minded people

Hi,

I have booked to stay in my campervan at my usual campsite in Blackpool, just a couple of miles away from where we will be flying.   I hope to cycle to and from the clinic each day (though I have yet to try carrying my kite bag while cycling) 

 

Caroline is staying at another campsite in Blackpool.  Not sure about anyone else.   It would definitely be good to meet up with other kite fliers for a bit of chill time.

      Join us for two full days of hard core TEAM QUAD instruction on May 13-14, 2017 with three members of Team KiteLife including @John Barresi and Scott Benz (@mystainedskin) on both days with Brett Marchel (@Flight Risk) joining us on Sunday at the Munson Soccer Fields near Detroit MI.
      Location - https://goo.gl/maps/iszmxLfeQzT2
      NOTE: This event has been reformatted - it is open to intermediate fliers or better only, focus will be on team flying and certain skills are required including basic hovers, figure 8 flight and fundamental speed control.
      Please also note, there are only 8 spots available!
      Saturday morning we'll have a rountable about team philosophy and dynamics, this covers a metric ton of stuff that even the "pros" think they know, but don't... Then we'll break up into two teams, rotating students between the two groups to work on team maneuvers and basic skill improvements, then we'll do a mega fly to close out the day, wind allowing.
      I'd also like to identify who, if anyone is interested in learning how to call a team on their own... This is a great chance for warm hearted coaching and friendly cohorts, really as painless and fun as it gets.
      Sunday will be more of the same, turned up few notches.
      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of "1.5" style kites (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, Phoenix, Shook, Swiss Made, Freilein, etc) - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win... Again, ANY type of basic "1.5 platform" quad line kite is acceptable for participation.
      Students will use their own kites, 120' length is REQUIRED for all team exercises.
      Must be Skybond or spectra lines for team flying.
