Re: What goes around comes around

We need to help you remove that "former" in your signature ;) :up:

This Saturday I will be at Fair Oaks Farm with 180Go!, and I'm sure there will be a bunch of the Wisconsin Kiters there as well with their big show kites. Tell the wife you have to go to "work" ;)

Re: Fair in the Air - Fair Oaks Farm coming up

There's a great big grass field for the big show kites & for other kite flying. There will probably be a lot of the Wisconsin Kiters there.

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.

Unfortunately, we just received word that Clear Lake / Color the Wind has been cancelled due to the ice melting, which means the flying field no longer exists . . . . .

One question: Is Chatham, Il, really on Monday, 9-25-2017?
