Re: IKE Temporary Tattoos!

If these are for the kids, we can ask the NIU Cheerleaders put them on, at the Art Attacks booth where they'll be making kites.

Re: DeKalb Kite Festival

Who's up for a demo at the festival? We have 2 fields for stunt kites. One for playing in and working with the public, and one for demo's with sound.

I've already gotten offers to do demo's from some, THANK YOU! Anyone else interested?

I'll be around and glad to assist as well. That's me, jack of all trades, cook, kite flier, parking attendant, and big kite roadie! :lol:
