Re: Tomorrow busse woods

I think that sounds like a great idea. What do the winds look like, and the rain for that matter :(

Re: 3rd annual IKE Kite retreat! September 21st / 22nd

Steve,
Your quote, "Btw, I like all the kites from Rev, including the EXP. I'd love a B-Pro set, but I am happy with all my kites" is what I have been using to slow down on my kite acquisitions.

Re: Chicago weekend......

Considering the rain and inconsistent wind, I had a great time. The layout was even better than last year and well organized.

I didn't know Penguins could fly.

Re: Chicago kids and kite May 4th 2013

Well if you saw them on line, then why bother posting,,,,, :-P I had a great time for the brief time I was there. The sun made a cameo and the wind picked up nicely. It was well organized, and I'm glad I went. Now to get jacked for Grand Haven!

Re: Who's out there

Since I live less than 2 miles from the Wheaton fair grounds, I almost feel obligated. For Sunday (which I might be able to swing too), how about Busse Woods? It's about 30 minutes for some of us.

Re: Relapse

I got it 6 years ago. It's a "Go fly a kite" which was bought by Sky Dog. It's only flown 2x, and spends more time hanging in the garage. We've decided to go to G. Haven. Are you going to Wheaton's "Go fly a kite" gig this weekend?

Relapse

Hey everyone,

In Feb & March, I flew a total of once. This weekend, Danny & I had a major relapse and flew everything in the garage, neglected duals, quads, SLK'S, including the pirate ship. We're back :piratecap: !

Re: some interesting looking quads

I bought my bow tie quad from Senor Adams (Whatever Kites), and flew it on Montrose Beach. I've been considering getting a larger version (hint).

Dragonfly Micro Kite

Hi everyone, This morning the wind gods were smiling, and the branches dancing, so I went to the airfield. As usual, I had a blast and my slides are getting better (finally).
