Re: Nephew In Top Shot Show

Tom,

I've been watching the show. Your nephew is an awesome marksman and a real stand-up person. It's nice to see someone with such strong ethics do so well.

You wouldn't know that archery is his sport given the way he handles the guns.

I hope he goes all the way. I'm rooting for him.

Re: Passing Through In May From The UK

My son and I (RevkidChris) are in a southwest suburb of Chicago and frequent Northerly Island as well as some local fields.

What specific days would you like to fly and will you be staying downtown or suburbs? If downtown, do you know hotel or area?

Cheers,

Re: Kite Party 9 Roll Call -- Mar 12-13, 2011

Chris and I had a good time. Saturday was the best with good winds in the afternoon followed by good food and the auction. There was a group of 8 to 12 Revs flying near the pier almost all day. I joined them late in the day when Jim Foster was calling and he did a good job of keeping me out of troub...

Re: Kite Party 9 Roll Call -- Mar 12-13, 2011

This will be our first time to KP and also flying with Revs. We have some questions for the veterans. Kites and supplies Do you bring both std and vented to KP? Spar selection? 3 wrap and 4 wrap? My understanding is we won't need stakes for the sand. Do you use something else? Flying (in the airplan...

Re: Lake In The Hills, IL - Can't Wait To Get Out!

Welcome to the Darkside Scott. Before you know it you will be flying a Rev of some type. A club fly is the best way to try OPK (Other People's Kites) and see what you like. You also want to talk to Wendy;she is catspaw00 on the forum. She is into power kites and kite surfing. You can do both water a...

Re: Revolution 1.5

Welcome to the dark side! Kent's post was outstanding. I vote for "sticky" as well. One other difference for the B-Series: The price includes two frame sets. Typically a standard sail comes with a 2-wrap and a 3-wrap and the vented comes with a 3-wrap and 4-wrap. The good kite stores will ...
