The kite is fine. Just a broken rod. Weird. :?:

Roxy,

Did you get your Rev in the air? I saw you getting your lines out, but was on the run.

Glad it was just the rod. Your first time doing a demo, going to try again? :lol: From the sounds of it I thought you tore the kite to shreds.

You missed my Charlie Brown flying? Got it stuck on top of the fence, luckly no damage and hit 2 people. Jeff's instructions, "Just keep it straight" Jeff fyi: I'm at step one, getting it up & crash landings.

I need to practice FAR AWAY from people & objects.

A fantastic festival. The Ikettes put on a great show, KUDOS boys.
And to Chris and JJ, I bow down to you for your tenacity and dedication. Sorry if the titles confuse you, I was lucky enough to find and post them let alone worry about the folder they were in.

here's a few pics

I enjoyed the photos, thanks! I like looking at all those quad lines overlapping, like in this one:

String art!

Hey, maybe that should be our team name?

Great job Jeff... after this week, I needed to see a reminder of what warm weather looked like!

So any info on the dates for 2008? My schedule is filling up quickly.

I have already committed to nine festivals, there are another four that I am hoping for invites to and another five
that I have to see just how full my schedule is.

Thanks, guys...you'd be surprised how long it takes to condense an hour of random footage to less than 15 minutes. :? Well, maybe not.

I'm catching up...still have a few more things that will be coming out by the end of the year...

Thank you so much Jeff! That looks great!

The dates for the DeKalb Fest won't be set until April. Wish it were otherwise, but there's no way around it. '08 is a rock and hard spot for date choices with Fishers event and Nationals hitting so close together. Best I can say is make your commitments as they come up and come fly in DeKalb if you're able.

If I am not mistaken the dates are sept.13th and 14th. The sad part is those are the same dates as the Mot fest in Wi.
