Re: 2010: May 21 Grand Haven, MI (Great Lakes Kite Festival)

:thanks: to your wife TOO for filming the mega-fly! Eek! Don't let Kathy know I have a wife :shock: Ha ha - it's a common mistake, particularly after 16 years together... (but we still live 100 miles apart!) We have barely flown since we've been back - just a couple of afternoons at the local spots...

Re: Passing Through In May From The UK

Getting excited now - got a small non-kite related Q about tipping - cos we Brits never tip :) The hotel in Chicago has "free" parking but as far as I can tell it's not self-park. it's not quoted as valet parking but sounds like they still have to park for you. Would you be expected to tip...
