Re: DuKane area club fly Aug 19 or 20

I just cancelled my West hotel. Currently thinking Shawnee national Forest or Kentucky or Tennessee.

Re: DuKane area club fly Aug 19 or 20

Same here regarding crowding. I'm considering anyplace along the line between about Grand Island, Nebraska and Kentucky. I figure the population is lower in Nebraska, and the climate there tends drier. But the final weather forecast is going to be the deciding factor. I've actually been to Boonville...

Re: DuKane area club fly Aug 19 or 20

Bill, where are you headed? I'm also going for totality, likely West. We could have a club fly during totality!

Re: DuKane area club fly Aug 19 or 20

Hello, sorry for not replying sooner . . . . I've been out of touch for a few days. I'd be up for a fly, but I'm probably leaving town early for the eclipse. I might be around on the 19th depending on weather projections & how far I'll have to drive for clear skies on Monday.

Re: NYM single vent vs double vent

You might want to try to make it to one of the Pontiac club fly events sponsored by Route 66 Kites. Big Mike will likely have NYM kites and/or the new Reflex kites to try (including the Reflex Spider). Depending on who is there, the 180Go! team bag might be there (for sure at the October Pontiac kit...

Re: Anyone want to be our AKA region 6 rep?

Well, it's an unpaid volunteer position (as much as my wishful thinking would like to get paid to fly kites). I think you should send an email to the address mike listed and maybe also check the kite.org web site. They might have something there. Are you an AKA member?

Re: New to Iowa

One more note - if you are into kite making, UMake is held every year the first weekend in March, and it's only about a three hour drive from Des Moines. I've gone the last three years, and will be going again next year.

Re: New to Iowa

Hey Jeff, glad you posted up here and welcome to IKE. I don't know about where to fly in Des Moines, but there are a couple other things to mention (in addition to the retreat, which is awesome every year). There are some kite festivals within driving distance for you. Two that come to mind immediat...

Re: IKE members - charitable event support 6/3?

I think they are probably looking for someone to entertain & educate the kids, but I don't know for sure. It's at Ned Brown Forest Preserve, 10 - 6 pm

I will PM you her phone number.

Maybe Mark can join you - that's his usual field to fly.

We received the following message via Facebook. If anyone wants to help them out, feel free to contact Nadia. I can't support her as I'm already committed to another festival on the 3rd. Hi.
