Addition to the list - St Louis Gateway Kite Festival - April 22nd (with Indoor flying on 4/21) - Chesterfield, MO. I think I already had that one in the calendar, but I just got an email from Mitch Cordover with the Gateway Kite Club.

Re: Belmont or Montrose fly ?

Bill - I seem to recall some 360 degree videos that I think you shot at Montrose in February or March . . . . am I remembering correctly?

I'd go, but we're off to Natalie's show choir competition in Indiana this weekend.
