Spoke to Alex, was on the phone for ages so forgot most of it!

The council wanted to take forever to do this, up to October, looks like they wanted to get summer out of the way.
Alex presented them with a code of conduct and risk assesments as an interim measure to allow kiting to return sooner, these are being submitted to the independent risk assesor for their approval

Thats the way I understood it anyway, maybe Alex could elaborate

It's a damn sight more than what they said on Radio 2 five weeks ago, "days, no more than a couple of weeks"

yeah I also spoke to Alex today and it sounds like 2 months at the earliest, could of been October if we hadn't got the RA and COC done already.

Can I just say we owe Peter Barret and Alex BIG STYLE. Peter took time of work in London and at his expense travelled back up Monday night for theis meeting. I believe Mike Shaw came up from Flexi as well, so hats off to them and I think a few beers are in order when the ban is lifted. :-D

sounds like we had the right people at the meeting
Peter blitzed them with regard to complaints from pilots and line length and Mike Shaw has offered to pay Paul McWilliams wages for 2 days while Alex gives him instruction on kiting...

I think a party at the BLCC is in order!!!!

All

As you have probably heard there is talk of the ban being lifted imminently but talking to Phil and Tony we should not openly broadcast this to the South Shore Community. The council have asked us I believe not to do this until they do a formal press release.
Personally I feel quite strongly about this as the ban should not be lifted until all the appropriate measures that we have agreed have been put in place. I.e. Signage Code of conduct etc.
If the council goes to press before the above are done I think we are in danger of descending into carnage and the possibility of an accident is increased as everyone suddenly flocks to South Shore.

Also, without the necessary we still have no grounds to police the beach e.g. informing someone of the no fly zones without there being signage to back this up.

We should also be looking at holding an event ‘ South Shore –Open for Business’ which will take part on a Saturday day with the aim of getting people down to sign up to the code of conduct. Spread the word and lurve and then have a great big piss up at the BLCC on the Saturday night to celebrate our release from slavery (Fleetwood and Rossall) and in honour of the hard work that Peter and Alex have put in.

Diary dates please!!!!

i nearly posted but thught best check here

had a lagoon orgy this evening at ss - news filtered thru when w e were out so i had the pleasure of r aping the lagoons of fylde borugh concil - sweet virgin waters abound...........

a sign - wooden stake has been hammered in by the hovercraft sign stating basically that ban is lifted launch 50 metre from dunes etc and adhere to ssbr code of conduct etc etc

i think it will be difficuly to keep the news s preading fast - anthill gang were out this afternoon and they told me.........

by the next weekend it will be common knowledge so

a do would be great opportunity to raise funds for professional signange at key launching areas and laminated code of conducts e tc and an official a nd public thank you to peter and alex - we owe them many beers
