Red Kite III post script

The tricky third year of RK3 bimbled along happily on Friday with a few more friends joining the throng.The air ambulance session was well attended and saw an increase in numbers of donations for the quiz and the First night raffle.Thanks to everyone who turned up and Annie Lawrie for giving an excellent presentation and valuable insight into the work of the Wales air ambulance service.There was also D.J.Jae who was chuffed withe the dancers who got up to strut there stuff late into the night.
Saturday was a bit out of sorts compared to the gorgeous sunshine on Friday evening.The morning was an unworldy mix of light rain and mist-which suited the backdrop that was the Baskerville Hall hotel .Conan Doyle would have been proud!
As it turned out a few folks stayed on site,some went to Hay on Wye for a mooch and others went on a D.I.Y. ride to Streffords of Worcester.Then, for the enthusiast, there was the 150/200 mile ride out with Jon Walter to Aberyswyth and a select(Small)band of super douper troopers went on the 3rd Pussy cat run over the shaky bridge of death,stopped to meet the iron horses at Erwood and braved the fog covered hills of Radnorshire(You could nearly see your windscreen if you were lucky)Then there was the dragon spouting water instead of fire,a welcome sit down for a time to take in the atmoshere and finally take on one of the trickiest hill climbs around before riding down the rollercoaster hill that took us back to Clyro.Great bunch and a fun old time.
The afternoon included the Jasper n Jonathon powered duck race,Mad Hatters tea party,a rather jolly slow bike race proposed by Breva Al and later on the raffle,A NEW, to us,top drawer 'live' band called Rumbajacks and those pesky Stuttgart display and stunt riders bumping into everone.Oh,and a late bar-Hic!
Not a bad week- end really.A tad ragged with over tones of silliness and beer.
