Re: January 30 forecast - partly sunny, 48F @ 2pm

I'm running up against a few things here too. Might be slightly windier tomorrow. Better chance of rain, though. We can decide tomorrow.

Re: January 30 forecast - partly sunny, 48F @ 2pm

Just checked. ESSC remains closed for the winter. And most of the flags that I observed were hanging straight down. With a forecast for decreasing winds.

Danada is fine. Or isn't there a park along North Ave that you guys have mentioned? And I'll double check on East Side tomorrow morning.

Unfortunately, East Side Sport's Complex is closed for the winter.

Re: a Semi Annual Retreat?

I get what you're you're saying about the "retreat" moniker.
Maybe a one day Spring Tune Up.

Re: a Semi Annual Retreat?

Reviving this topic. Maybe a one day thing at the Dunes or somewhere else? A Saturday? Looking at the IKE Google calendar it appears that March 26 and April 2 are open.
(No clue what the 180Go group is up to. No 2016 schedule showing yet.)

For Sale: Sky Burner, NikNak

Before I was kidnapped to the "dark side" I was trying out different kites. Including this Sky Burner, NikNak which I purchased in July, 2014. After about 5 flights, it has not been flown at all. I might as well try to find a new home for it. NikNak.jpg Here's the current product page: htt...

Rev II Fly - December 20, 2015

I almost put up a post asking if anyone wanted to get together. But it was last minute so I just went to a local park by myself for about an hour. Winds were gusting up to 30 mph. Got out my Rev II which loves the breeze. And lashed it to a set of new 40 foot lines from Big Mike. Then hung on until ...

I think that we did good getting the spirals from last year, Mark. These, to me at least, are not as attractive.
