Didja have a chance to chat with the hotel staff before you left?

Yeah, that was me in the rainbow. I have no idea why I was having such control problems at that moment. It was frustrating.

Nice job Bill. I've always been impressed with Shari's photos, as well.

Re: Team Flying Clinic?

Sounds great, but I need more practice in the "hold your position in all orientations" part. Plus, the coming weeks are going to be pretty busy for me, as we're preparing to relocate. Maybe if you do another one in the spring.

Depends on when I pry myself out of bed. It's about a 2.5-hour drive for me (finally, a reasonable amount of driving for a kite event!). I'll probably shoot for a 9 a.m. CDT arrival.

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

How about some tips from those of you that have been and flown at the Dunes before, please. Bring kites obviously. Pack some food and water, I assume? Is it a long walk from parking to the flying area? Probably a chair? Chesterton exit off of I 94? Anything else that you can think of. Thanks. Bill ...

Sorry for the late welcome, but welcome. I'll be at the retreat both days. I'm easy to spot ... I think I'm the tallest guy in the club!

Re: 9/20-21 John Barresi at Busse Woods

I planned to attend John's casual clinic in Cleveland last Sunday but blew it off when I saw the wind forecast (calm). From the photos on Kitelife.com, it appears some people got some stuff in the sky for at least part of the day, but it wasn't worth the risk of a four-hour drive (each way) for me. ...

Re: Barresi Westbound Through Illinois?

Just found the Cleveland & Chicago casual clinic details. Google Maps says drive to each is same (just under four hours, although I'm suspicious that ). My plan for now is to shoot for Cleveland, unless weather looks bad, in which case I'll blow off Cleveland and try to make Chicago.

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

For the past two years, I've only attended on Saturday. IIRC people had stuff in the air by 10 a.m., perhaps a bit earlier. We wrapped up around supper time and then ate together in town ("Side slide the water pitcher my way, please." "You want that an inverted side slide?" "...

Re: Skyburner NikNak

Can't go wrong with Skyburner and especially dealing directly with Jon and Marieanne. Great people, great service. I have a Skyburner Ocius UL that I bought used. It's a trickier kite and I would probably have been better off with the Nik Nak, because I'm more interested in "precision" fly...

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

Saturday night dinner will be at Tao Chen's Chinese restaurant with the super nice owners/workers. Service and food were great and the owner even came out on Sunday to play with us! It's highly recommended to do both days if you can. Having dinner and hanging out at the hotel is a great way to meet...

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

Bill, the IKE Retreat is something we do once a year for the club to get together and fly on the beach for a weekend. No festival or anything, just us having fun. The Dunes are a great place to fly, and, as TMadz said, it won't be very crowded in late September so we have lots of space. Bill, ya go...
