Re: Team Flying Clinic?

Was it that bad? Kidding. Absolutely would be interested, but I'd like to take the winter to practice the moves you linked to. Unless, that begins to interfere with festival flying next year. Bill, we just have to jump in with both feet. I keep hearing the same thing from everyone. Maybe if we can ...

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

Thanks Mark. But the goal is to get good enough flying to hang in the Rev line with you guys. Maybe less time for photos.

I had a great time BTW. It was nice to meet everyone.

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

Between 9 am and 10, I reckon for me. Central Daylight Time is in that area, I believe.

Forecast winds still on the light side.

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.

Re: Anyone in there?

I've been thinking of getting one for winter flying. Would seem to be quick to assemble and disassemble with cold fingers.

Possibly the Prism 1.9 Snapshot.

Re: Sept 14 - somewhere . . . maybe Dekalb

I met Mark and later Steve at DeKalb today. Quite a crowd, too. Wind cooperated for the most part. I had never flown my Rev in close quarters with so many other kites. So that was an interesting experience. Toward the end of my time there Mark and Steve offered to let me try follow the leader. That ...

Re: Higher Wind Rev Advice Wanted

My 1.5 SLE vented hung in there yesterday when the wind gusted to slightly over 25 mph at mid-day. I had hoped to get up to Two Rivers but was unable.
