Hi there,

We (family of three) have moved to Cambridge and will be here till late summer this year. On the lookout for kite buggy spots in the area I came across the SKF. If I join the SKF, can I go kiting in Rougham pretty much all the time, or only at the announced weekenders? I am asking because I currently work part time and would love to get some buggy time on weekdays when wind is good.

Apart from the occasional kiting in the buggy I spend most of my time with my son (who's 5) and wife. I like baking traditional bread and doing a bit of woodworking.

Cheers,
Joerg

Hi Joerg,
Welcome.

Yes you can fly whenever, with a few basic rules:
-providing there is more than one person attending site
-you advise your intention to fly (date/time)
-providing there is nothing else onsite (e.g. fair etc.).

Its a friendly, helpful club and good value!!!

There tends to be more people using facebook now a days, take a look here:

If you need to know anything else shout.

Cheers,

Tim.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for the very quick response!

So this would mean that if I decided I wanted to go for a morning of kiting, I'd have to get someone else to come along or make sure someone else (of the club) is already there? I imagine this could be difficult in my hey-weather's-good-let's-go-kiting scenario. Or are some of you out there on a regular basis?

Would it suffice, if I posted my intention to go flying here on the forum?

Just what I'm after! :D

Hi Joerg,

Sorry just spotted your post.

The flying field is a big lonely place should you get injured...hence the rule.

To be honest a lot of people now use facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/suffolk ... =bookmarks

If you post on there people will soon shout up if they are up for a fly! Generally more fly over weekends as most, but not all have to work ;)

HTHs,

Tim.
