Re: Treasure Island FL - Jan 19-20, 2013

Hey kids! I'm planning to go too.
This may be my only chance for team practice before next season. As of now i'm not planning to go to Kite Party because of going to WISKF.

Getting car oil change and tires rotated. Must be getting ready for a road trip. What time does the beach?

Re: April 14 & 15, Airwaves in Cincinnati

Fyi...we will have the use of their sound system as in the past years. When going to the park, use the entrance on Cox Rd., not the Taylorsville Rd. entrance. Also, there will be no learn to fly next to us, just club/aka sport kites. Mike, please bring my team jacket. I may stop by friday night to g...

Re: Frayed bridle damage

Those worn locations seem a bit odd - even if the kite was flown roughly. On a used B-series that I bought, the bridle loops at the wingtips were frayed from being flown on sand mostly. This suggestion is meant as a short term fix until you get some spare bridles and this is also just for the end-ca...

Re: Treasure Island Florida! In January!

Mike - here is the room layout, I'll have the efficiency room. I stayed in this 2 years ago but I do not remember just how much space there actually is between the 2nd bed and the back wall. There may be room under the front window if we move the chairs and table... there is the kitchenette, too.......
