- Anything else?
Looking forward to a fun time (if the World can hold itself together....)

  • Hello WW,
    Billund is about 70 km from Fano or roughly 1 hour and 30 minutes with the ferry crossing. If you have the time in Billund the Lego museum is interesting. Program is not yet finalized but there is usually a banner meeting on the beach on Wednesday where hundreds of banner gather, a good KAP opportunity, also on the Wednesday night there is a bowl night, I do not know yet when is the bonfire on the beach. Sonderho village to the south, it’s mill and wetlands are some other great KAP targets. During the week there are numerous gathering of different type of kites such as the box kite flying, the owls or the dragons and this is normally posted on the kite meeting Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/616799181666624. Of course all is subject to the weather. We should create a whats app group to share info on the spot.
    The KAPi meeting room is based at the main camping ground but we should have plenty of opportunities to meet for evening BBQ in our cottages. The few times I have rented cars in Denmark, I rented with Sixt.com, they have a good service, excellent cars and decent rates.

    Dear Jim, dear friends!
    Please check the page:

    This overview will be updated step by step.
    Due to weather-conditions there is no special schedule for KAPer.
    Therfore I suggest briefings at Rødgaard Camping for KAPer.
    "Thank you Pierre for your hints!"

    Re cameras, bring the ones you did not crash yet !
    Re reels, stratospool will do
    Re drones… your choice but remember this is a kite meeting….

  • Is there any information on public transport on Fano? I see on streetview there are bus sops but couldn't find any other informations

  • Hamish,
    here is the bus schedule between the different villages in Fano https://visitfanoe.dk/media/4473/vinterkoereplan-fanoe-bus-9.pdf
    An other option would be bike rental https://visitfanoe.dk/en/nature/fanoe-by-bike/ or of course car rental.

  • Hey folks.
    I'm sorry to say that I will not be attending the Fanø meeting next month. I have some health issues which need managing at the moment and it is sensible to pass this event.
    I hope everyone has a great time and enjoys a healthy dose of sea air.
    Take care,
    Kev

  • Kev,
    We will miss you!
    Health comes 1st. Heal quickly....and keep flying kites (and drones).. ;-)

    WW

  • Looks like rain gear will be needed for KAPiFAN0 2022!

    Looking forward to the event and catching up with my fellow KAPers.

    Given bit iffy weather.... perhaps we should plan a few informal "indoor KAP workshops" as a backup plan.

    Wind looks good ;-)

    FAN0 2022

  • The fun is not over…. Wolfgang and I are in Fano until the end of the week…

  • Hello,
    I saw a couple of kapers on the beach on Fanø. Does anyone here in the forum know these people?




    It was just a little joke, of course.
    I send my best regards and hope they are safely back home. And I greet all the kapers who are still on Fanø.

    Peter

  • Magnificent evening summer light. Enjoy this event.
    (Incredible red kite too !)

  • i really wish I could have attended - looks like you all had a great time!

  • Dave, let's meet in 2023 in Fano, my cottage is already booked !

  • These are awesome photographs. Thanks for sharing. Looks like everyone had a good time.

  • After loosing my PC to repair for a month, I am finally getting around to publishing videos collected during my visit to the FAN0 kite festival / flyin.

    Below is the first of several videos from KAPiFAN0 2022. Click on the image to see video on YouTube.

    Enjoy.
    P. S. the 4K videos are best viewed on large 4K screens. ;-)

    WW

  • I was crazy to pull out of coming! Next year!

  • I monitor the KAP forum almost daily. I pick up good ideas for my own KAPing efforts. Postings have been slow and far between for the past month and longer, so it was very good to see WW’s update today on the KAPFANO excursion. Great pictures and video, Jim. It appears that it was an excellent opportunity for kiting and KAPing.

  • FAN0 Day two 4K video is now up on YouTube.
    Enjoy!

    WW

  • An excellent video, needing several cups of coffee to accompany it.
