Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

For those of you who heard me mention my interview with The Decorators, I just discovered it's been published. The title has the word, "private" in it. I'm not sure, but that might mean its available only to subscribers. So I just learned that the article is not yet officially live. It's ...

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

But I do have Roks if folks want to do a kite battle. Have never seen a kite battle. That could be fun. Looks pretty definite that I'm coming for the day tomorrow. Google maps says it's a 2.75-hour drive and I'm hoping to be on the road by 8 a.m. EDT, which should easily get me into the park by 10 ...

Be sure to PM Mike for his cell phone number. If the beach is empty when you arrive, you can find out where everyone went for supper. In fact, you might wanna call him before you pay for park admission.

Well you can look but there's not much chance the winds will be as forecast.

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

Hoping for some good winds. Wind forecasts this far in advance are quite unreliable, but here's what the NWS is saying for Chesteron: From 9 a.m. Saturday, 5 miles per hour from the East-northeast (along the shoreline), becoming more northerly (more off the lake) and increasing to 6 MPH by 2 p.m. a...

Also, there used to be an annual, free, dual line trick clinic in Indiana. Both the kiter and the clinic are mentioned here: http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/viewtopic.php?t=1258 Sorry to say that HKS discontinued the trick clinic in Muncie. It was last held in 2010. I went to that one and attendance ...

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

Anyone have decent experience on Duals? I'm looking to pick up some tricks from a stunter. My learning curve is not a straight line. Not many stunters to hook up with in the midwest. I'm a dual flyer but relatively new at it. I haven't learned any tricks yet ... just starting to work on stalls. Afr...

Can people bring their stakes / sand anchors, and line sets (ideally 80-100lb and greater), and help me with the flight? Let me know if you have good anchors for the beach or can hold a line at some point - I'd like to have an idea of how many of the SLKs to bring & set up. Thanks. I don't have...

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

I've always liked the logo. Hey, that reminds me ... what's the process for obtaining a club t-shirt? Every once in a while I order a batch and sell them at cost. I'll bring what I have to the retreat. They're $10, $13 for xxl or larger. Cool. If I make it (and it's looking pretty good for Sep. 29)...
