Re: NYM single vent vs double vent

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.

Re: Games

I asked for socks, and only socks, for Christmas. Merry Socksmas! I did get some great socks. However, we also played a bunch of games over the holidays. Here's a few more that you might want to check out for your family. They may be a bit advanced for Garrett? It's been too long since I've had a ki...
