Is it time to close down this forum?

Hello IKE members,
The club has been inactive for quite a while, and this forum only gets spam posts now.

Re: Hello from Troy Illinois

Hi! Unfortunately, our club is no longer active. There are a couple Rev fliers in the Gateway kite club in St Louis. Maybe you can get some help there. It is much easier to learn from someone else. If your travels take you north along the 55 you might also try contacting Route 66 Kites in Pontiac, I...

Portland is a lot of fun. Blue Star donuts are the best!
You'll have a good time, but we'll miss you on the flying field.

Re: NYM single vent vs double vent

The team's NYM fly great, but given what you already have, I'd get a reflex spider next.

I haven't spoken Ed, but whether he is running again or not, if someone thinks they can do a good job they should run for the office.

Hi Jeff, welcome to the club. Glad you made it here from my email. Most of our fliers are in the Chicago area and down in central Illinois (Pontiac, IL has a regular club fly with a bunch of quad fliers). But does anyone here know people in Iowa for Jeff? We will also have a '"kite retreat"...

Welcome to the club, John!
It'll be fun to see those old kites in the air.
Of course, you'll have to try a kite with double the strings and double the fun :) Most of our members also fly quads--Steve will help you out, I'm sure.
