Sunday saw us on the green at Woodchurch to celebrate One Sky One World, the world kite fly for peace. The weather forecast was pretty horrible, but despite the conditions we had a good turn out of club members and public. Of course, some of us had important Rugby World Cup action to watch so were a little late arriving. 

By the time I got there, there were already several kites in the sky, but the outlook was extremely dull and overcast, and sure enough, soon after getting a kite into the sky, the heavens opened. So I hurried back to my car to have some lunch and listen to the rest of the Japan v Scotland match. By the time the game was over, the rain had passed through, and I don't think we were troubled by it again. I wasn't as brave as some, who flew through the downpour.

Despite the weather, we had a pretty good afternoon flying, and were even joined by some local folks who brought out their son's birthday present to fly. I understand the unofficial number of kites flown was 42, but we're awaiting confirmation of the final count.

Next weekend is the Martin Corrie Mermorial Fly in Frinton on Sea, Essex. I know several of our members will be attending that if the weather is favourable. But I expect some may fly locally in Kent somewhere.
