Re: Let's have a club fly!

I'm camping with the boy scouts at warren dunes the 14th and 15th and bringing my kites. If you do a club fly it's not far away for me. We come back on Sunday moring, but if you do something out there I could hang around. KiteVoice, I fly dualies too. I just got a Hypnotist to go with my Quantum. I ...

Re: Killip Kite

Ya know. I don't think it looks odd at all with the tube. I like the pattern. I imagine the difficulty of sewing the panels is a drawback to creating more panel design

Re: Michigan City Kite Fest June 30th & July 1st

We actually prefer the festivals where we get to fly all day. At the last couple fests, we were the only stunt kiters and we flew the entire time. We mostly improvise to whatever music the DJ is playing. During most festivals I don't sit down until dinner. :) I don't care for the festivals where yo...

Re: Michigan City Kite Fest June 30th & July 1st

I'm hoping to make it on Saturday. Does :Logo180GO!: know when they're performing? If I can make it, I'm gonna have to leave early for an evening engagement.

Welcome Stunter. I have a snapshot 1.9, but I'm thinking of getting a Tensor powerfoil as well. Maybe we can grab some air sometime.

Re: What's flying this week - Monday June 11 - Sunday 17th?

Looking to eventually get into landboarding and maybe buggys if I can find an open enough place. I know this is a little small for those activities, but it was the right price and I am learning how they handle before I end up over my head (or on it) if something goes wrong with the board. But for n...

Re: Who's flying what this week - June 18 - Sunday 24th?

I am open this weekend during the days. Just tell me where and when to be.

I'm going to try and make a day trip to Michigan City so I can finally see :Logo180GO!: in action.

Re: Who's flying what this week - June 18 - Sunday 24th?

My schedule has finally opened up and I'll be available a lot more on the weekend and some evenings as well. I got me a few SLK's recently and a sled for fathers day. I hope to try them out soon. I am starting to fill a full fledged kite bag, but it's getting expensive now.

Re: U-MAKE 2013

I rememeber going to Laredo Taft on a school retreat. Now my kids are going there as they hit that age. It's a lot of fun. I remember making a candle and can holder in the craft shack. The dining hall has a wall of picture windows that overlooks the rock river in the valley below and lots of trails ...

Sunday is out. I am available all Saturday afternoon. I have something in the morning and plans at night. Let me know where you're thinking.

It's so dry out I can't get my steel kite stake into the ground.

Team 180go survived 16+ hours in the car together (we do it again tomorrow!) and had a blast flying in North Dakota! Check out the 180go Facebook page to see some of the shenanigans. So did you play nice with each other? Did "dad" have to threaten to stop the car? Too many potty breaks? I...

Are you guys game for Saturday? My daughter has a dance recital on Sunday. Really? Fathers day? 3-6p? You know it was moms who scheduled that one! I never get asked. I'm just told where to be and when. I won't even have time to cook baby back ribs. That is a travesty! To hell with no presents. I am ...

Re: SLK art

I might be bookmarking this thread . . . . just in case the art kite links get really interesting. In SLK, I like some of the stuff by Willi Koch - the mesh items and some of the bigger line laundry, and there are plenty of others as well. BTW, why limit the art kite thread to SLKs - there's a whol...
