Re: This weekend - 4/16 or 17.

I'm booked this weekend, and the following 2 weekends are 180GO things. But after that maybe we can work out a club fly in Pontiac.

Re: This weekend - 4/16 or 17.

Indeed, where is everybody?
Maybe we should change the name of the club to SBKE: Steve and Bill, Kite Enthusiasts

Done is better than perfect for the kites I build.

Same here :up:
Welcome to the 100' kite club. The stitching always looks good when the kite is 100 feet up!

Re: Revolution reflex?

OK, I was pretty skeptical. I was watching the kite, and the spring in the back, while someone else flew. The spring is supposed to keep a curve in the sail, but it didn't seem to be doing anything--I could see the sail pressed against the spar most all of the time. The winds were light, but not sup...

Re: Kite Party

I just looked at the Kite Party Page (http://kiteparty.com/non-festival/) He has a few shout-outs. One of which is IKE! If there is interest, we should plan on big IKE attendance next year. At least one year, we rented a couple houses and crammed a bunch of people in there. I've been to almost all o...

Unfortunately, we have another festival scheduled for that same day.
I'd like to do Shipshewana though, maybe we can work out something for 2017.

If 180GO! doesn't get one before then, I'll play with one in Huntington Beach and take some more photos.

Re: a Semi Annual Retreat?

A one day deal will most likely only appeal to folks who are somewhat local. Probably won't see anyone from WI or MI for example.
Even I would be somewhat iffy, given that it's a 7 hour round-trip drive.

Re: a Semi Annual Retreat?

I should put up a few dates on our web page.
But both the dates you mentioned are open. Weather can still be cold, even snow then. So I'd go for the later, April 2nd date.
I'd call a one day event a club fly though.
