Re: Anyone want to be our AKA region 6 rep?

I thought Ed Grys was representing our region? Is he not going to do it again?

Re: New to Iowa

One more note - if you are into kite making, UMake is held every year the first weekend in March, and it's only about a three hour drive from Des Moines. I've gone the last three years, and will be going again next year.

Re: New to Iowa

Hey Jeff, glad you posted up here and welcome to IKE. I don't know about where to fly in Des Moines, but there are a couple other things to mention (in addition to the retreat, which is awesome every year). There are some kite festivals within driving distance for you. Two that come to mind immediat...

Re: IKE members - charitable event support 6/3?

I think they are probably looking for someone to entertain & educate the kids, but I don't know for sure. It's at Ned Brown Forest Preserve, 10 - 6 pm

I will PM you her phone number.

Maybe Mark can join you - that's his usual field to fly.

IKE members - charitable event support 6/3?

We received the following message via Facebook. If anyone wants to help them out, feel free to contact Nadia. I can't support her as I'm already committed to another festival on the 3rd. Hi. My name is Nadia and I would like to discuss with someone about having some kite representative at one of my ...

Re: Kite Sale 2.0

I think I only sold some of the Revs out of this pile - maybe only the full vent. I don't remember selling any of the dual lines, although I might have sold the flexifoil and I donated some kites to U-Make. I sold the 19 ft delta to a Wisconsin Kiter. My wife became resigned to the additional kite b...

Re: What goes around comes around

We need to help you remove that "former" in your signature ;) :up:

This Saturday I will be at Fair Oaks Farm with 180Go!, and I'm sure there will be a bunch of the Wisconsin Kiters there as well with their big show kites. Tell the wife you have to go to "work" ;)

Re: Fair in the Air - Fair Oaks Farm coming up

There's a great big grass field for the big show kites & for other kite flying. There will probably be a lot of the Wisconsin Kiters there.
