Re: Germantown WI Fun Fly

Is this like the launcher they had in Davenport last year? Yes, it is like that one (except I think his might be powered by a compressor and mine is "kid jumping on a 2L bottle powered"). I made a couple for the cub scouts to demonstrate rocketry concepts (and because it's great fun). ..a...

Re: A Proposal - Tethered Aviation and Tea

In the future, it would be WINDerFULL to get a combined group (WKC, IKE, and who ever) together at Veterans Park and I'd be more than pleased to assist in anyway I can! Great idea!

Wendy ~ Funny you bring this up... A nice group of kiters (SL, DL, QL) of both Wisconsin Kiters Club (WKC) members and miscellaneous flyers were to meet at Veterans Park this Saturday until we found that the Milwaukee Water and Air Show would be performing at our lakefront. Not only would the crowds...

Re: Sunday Quick fly??

...and here in Milwaukee at Veterans Park... we had crazy high, low, and swirling wind causing lousy kiting along with vampire-like biting horse flys (which are not the norm). But we also had a whole lot of flyer conversation not only about the winds and flies, but about the shocking news regarding ...

Re: WSIKF 2012

Seems like not much interest this year (other than Mike) . . . I may go anyway, and just camp out and fly Revs nonstop for a few days. One note - 2013 is the 25th anniversary of Revolution Kites, and there was a suggestion of trying for a 100 Rev mega fly at the 2013 WISKF. Maybe we should plan ahe...

Both were bought new. Can't wait to try it with the sticks! Magic sticks are not factory included... they are an 'after...
