U-MAKE - January 13 & 14 - Des Moines, IA

Ticket costs for travel to Treasure Island are up this year, so here is a close by non-festival alternative you might consider for that weekend.

I'm planning on attending primarily for the Dolphin build ... want to gain some knowledge on building inflatables.

Cheers,
Tom

Re: KITE PARTY X ~ March 10th-11th 2012 Huntington Beach CA

My wife doesn't fly kites ... has absolutely no interest in learning. But, she's always game to go to a kite festival. Once there, she spends time chatting with the other non-kite flying members. Or, she finds something in the local area that interests her and off she goes. Let's see ... zip lining ...

No, but I am wondering what those people on the beach are doing dressed in space suits. It hit 99 degrees here yesterday ... looks like summer here is refusing to go away.

But Jeff, it's not an IKE Group photo ... it's a photo of some IKE members. If you're going to publish it in AKA magazine, you'll have to Photoshop in the missing members. Or, label it appropriately!!!

Re: Helloooo!

Welcome David. One of the great things about the club is the ability to fly other people's kites (OPK) to see if you like that aspect of the hobby or that particular kite. Or, is that one of the bad things about the club ... I forget. Big Mike handed me the handles to one of his quad kites (dark blu...

Welcome Bill ... it's great to have another member.

You'll have to check in with cadguy here on the forum. Dave lives near Dayton, Ohio, and is an active Rev flier. What kind of SLKs have you built?

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 9/26 - 10/2

Have you heard about Cadillac Ranch? Even if you've heard about Cadillac Ranch, I doubt you've heard about Bug Ranch in Conway, Texas. It seems to be a very, very low-brow parody of Cadillac Ranch. But, it's along old Route 66, so maybe that's okay. Anyway, that is where we took a break from our tra...

Re: some interesting looking quads

Yes, the second kite was made by Alden. He first saw one like it at Treasure Island, took lots of pictures and measurements, then proceeded to modify it to suit his desires. He flew it at WSIKF this year. Told you WSIKF was too big to see everything!!!

But, I've got a number of half-pint kites, a couple of small stacks and a full size stack to fill that void. Got to save my...

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 8/29-9/04?

The lack of an area to fly sport kites at the Two Rivers festival is one of the reasons I branched out into SLKs. It's a great festival, but you have to work at finding space to fly. However, having said that, several of us flew over the water and in the big kite field last year. If you have the tim...
