PKF is not a
formal club, we are friends who get together occasionally to fly Kites over Poole -
you are welcome to join us. Just turn up at any of our informal Kite Flying sessions
to get acquainted with the "old hands"
and, subject to mutual approval, you are in - for life - or as long as you wish!
That's it - no membership fees or formal meetings, just good old-fashioned friendship and a warm welcome to all comers, subject to accepted rules of kite etiquette, plain common sense and good manners. See our News Page for dates and location of our informal Fly-ins.
Want to try a kite ? We have a wide range of kites - single line, dual & quad - for stunts, tricks, ballet to music, power & buggy - just ask to "Have A Go".
Newbies - An affectionate term for those who are "new" to kites. We have a range of kites suitable for beginners to "have a go", and there is a Newbies web page full of useful stuff which may not be obvious to first-time Kiters.
Old Hands - We are pleased to team up, can help with spares & repairs, plus details of local suppliers & clubs, flying sites. We also have a photo gallery of friends & heroes.
PKF Gallery - Friends who do not wish their photograph or Email address to appear on the website, please state this when giving your contact details.
Just a couple of points...
Poole Kite Fliers are asked to comply with a few simple rules, for the safety and consideration of all.
Public Liability Insurance (3rd party) - Some household insurances cover 3rd party liability. We strongly recommend you pay to join an additional kite club which offers this insurance, such as
Midland Kite Fliers,
Avon Kite Fliers,
Solent Kite Fliers, or
Brighton Kite Fliers.
Power Kiters and/or Buggy Pilots - You are very welcome to come to Baiter to "do your thing" - it's a great site for that - BUT - you MUST take care not to fly or drive in a manner likely to endanger or antagonize the public. If you come to Baiter to buggy, you MUST carry proof of proper 3rd party buggy insurance - Poole Park Rangers may ask to see this. We strongly recommend you join the local power kite club: Baiter Power Kites. Here is a map link for Kites at Baiter Park.
Poole Borough Council run Baiter Park - if ANY kite flyer behaves in a manner to upset them, we shall ALL pay the price by being banned from this great site.
