I'll be there, probably with Lauren. Timing is bad for Chris as finals are on Tuesday. Maybe get him up for a short day.

Re: Decatur April 24th And 25th 2010

One good day of flying. The festival had an interesting display of Hi-Flier memorabilia. The company was founded in 1920 in Decatur. They had photos, plates used in printing kites, as well as a few kites. 180GO! flew well with Big Mike doing the calls. Nick and Chris did kite play with the small kid...

Re: 2010: Kite Party 8. Huntington Beach, CA. Mar 13-14

Mike,

Thanks for posting the photos. Awesome photos of the ball with Ike in the middle and the others as well. Who took them? KAP rig or from the pier?

Vicarious thrills this year; real thing next year!

FYI
Scott Fisher is sponsoring this one. He's been great to IKE members. We should support him when he visits IL!

Candy drop from the opposite side of the river??

Stitch together a panorama picture from KAP rigs on both sides of the river. Good way to get crowd shots.

Re: 2010: Color The Wind. Clear Lake, Iowa. Saturday, Feb 20

Check the no/low wind maneuvers at 5:12 in Mike's video.

Mike showed off some of his best moves.

Amazing what you can see at a kite festival. :up:

Nice job everyone!

Re: Kites On My Mind

I am itching to fly. If the temperature and wind are decent, I'm in. If there are only a few of us, we can call before we go.

What time are you thinking?

Re: New Member Pre-introduction

Congratulations! and best wishes on your new addition.

Just remember two kids aren't like flying a stack. More like flying a dual and a quad at the same time. Sometimes they do what you expect/want and other times ?? :-D
