Re: 2009: Perry Farms Kite Festival, August 15-16

I can't commit until close to the event. Work is too volatile.

If I do go, it will be Sat only.

Re: What About A Blast?

One other thought, especially with the non-vented... You will experience a bit of sail stretch as your kite ages. It's just the nature of the beast.

Re: What About A Blast?

I have at least one of everything Rev. Here's my thoughts. 1.5's - Best all around kite. Best precision. As for vented vs non-vented.... if I had it to do all over again, I would buy a SUL 1.5 and a vented 1.5. And I wouldn't need anything else in order to fly in the crappy winds we have in the Midw...

Sorry Jeff, I conflated the new Windows and the new Browser. They are actually different things. And to be clear, I'm not a Apple fan-boy. There are pusses and minuses to both systems.

There is also the field in Lisle that we flew on at Lislefest... although with sports going on, I doubt that it's going to be empty on a Saturday. There are also some nice locati...
