Re: Color the Wind 2013 - Clear Lake Iowa - Feb 16

Really? A kite festival in Iowa in the middle of February? How cold is that?

Re: slow forum....

If you've seen other home pages you like, kite club or any other club, post the links here for ideas. Or PM them to me. Thanks! FWIW, the Hoosier Kitefliers Society website recently got a new look thanks to its new webmaster (yours truly). Not sure whether anything HKS did would be inspiring or use...

Thanks for the list, CK. If you hear that any of these events need an announcer, let me know. Mike K. can let you know of my abilities.

Re: NO more Airwaves :(

:cry: Bummer. I'd heard that this might happen from a couple of PIGS Aloft leaders at the September HKS fly. Airwaves was closer to home than any other significant festival. We could easily get there in three hours. GLKF in Grand Haven requires five. And anything north of Chicago ... well, it's four...

Re: Kite Stakes . . . again

I bought Peggy, my wife, one of the fancy stakes from www.kitestakes.com for her birthday, just because I thought it was fun and silly to have such a fancy kite stake!

Thanks, 11, for the "door prize." I used it at our rescheduled OSOW fly last Sunday.

Re: Rescheduled Ft. Wayne OSOW Fun Fly

No problem! Seemed especially appropriate, since an IKE member (yours truly) is organizing the fly! To be honest, the real reason for my cross-posting is simply to increase the chances that more people will show up1 That's why I also posted on GWTW, Kitelife and the AKA calendar! I wish you lived cl...

Rescheduled Ft. Wayne OSOW Fun Fly

Because high winds forced the cancellation of our One Sky One World fun fly in Fort Wayne, Ind. Oct. 14, we’re going to try again Sunday, Oct. 21, even though it won’t be the official world kite-flying day. So, bring a kite to Trinity Church, 9600 St. Joe Road, Fort Wayne, IN 46835 ( map ) between n...
