Re: Oregon, IL Kite Festival

Sure we could go , but they need to float some dates out there. My calendar is pretty full at present. And gas money would be great.

Re: Governors State University Demo/Fly/Educational Class

Ann and I would be interested in going. Would like more info on the flying area. If the area is to small for the Octopus and Trilobite we could fly a range of smaller kites. Its a 190 mile drive for us so a tank of gas would be most welcome. Any contact info? Tony & Ann Killip

looks like a great place to fly, perhaps Dave might set something up. The crowds could be huge. And yes the photo shots would be awsome I think.

Re: *Soccer Players*

Well golfers are just as bad, many times we have been flying at one end of the park then begin hearing the thud of impacting golf balls. The city has a driving range just a mile away but they come and hit the balls one way, then hit them back the other way. Most golfers leave with fewer balls than t...
