Re: Which Rods???

At the risk of being classed as a Philistine, I believe there is an awful lot of bull spoken around rev frames. The intricate scientific discussion of 2/3/4/rr/silver bullet/SLE frames would make more sense to me if there was some level of consistency in the rods. ah ha! but that would assume that ...

Re: 2009:Oswego Earth Day Kite Festival - April 18, 2009

it was fun... too short of a time for me but we played Drumshow to over 2500 people over 3 shows and it went off without a hitch..

Flying the 8 man team in those crappy winds was a bit of a challenge but was a great time.

Re: New Team Jackets

A few of you have heard this story already... I love when that happens. I came home yesterday and found my neighbors trying to launch a small kite. They had the spars all wrong and in a few mins, I had it fixed and flying for them. I used the opportunity to break out my Circoflex and it blew them a...

we did a couple of the soups this week. These were awesome also.

I opted to make my own gnocchi's for the chicken & gnocchi soup and was just blown away at how good everything was.
