Caption Competition

As always, no prizes, but I'm sure there must be some cracking captions for this photo:

It's a good job we brought those sky hooks with us so that we can swing across to the other side.
it's better to forget and be happy than to remember and be sad.

The only safe way to look at triple falls today was with a kitecam.


Why do we have all this safety kit on to fly kites? In the rain?

All in all a fantastic event.

We had a look at the tribs of the Etive and they were huge.

Pinball looked insane.

Did anyone get any footage of Triple at it's highest on Saturday?

The rescue rangers all forgot to check for pylons before they launched their rope rescue.


Unknowingly to the rangers, the work experience boy filled their bags with helium.

If we can just get these ropes around that hill, We can pull scotland to a warmer climate.

Erm, well it was like this.

Bob got his line caught in a tree so Tony lobbed his to try and knock Bob's out. I thought I'd have a go from this angle, and that's when you turned up with that damn camera!

Big air loop and popout rescue is another key skill the team mastered

Although the competitor did manage the biggest air loop of the day, he was subsequently disqualified when helium was found in his air bags after we got him down..

I see you and the runt only came 4th, Tim? Poor showing! Let the excuses start...

And I've just discovered I'll see you in Nepal in 2 days. Schweet.
