Ok, New Year's resolution: be better IKE member! :-D

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Rose (Hi! Hola!), been flying revs for an embarrassingly long time considering my current skill level. Basically, since Dad (that's Mike Kory to the rest of you) brought home our first rev when I was 7 or 8. I was there at IKE founding, I believe, but disappear from club activities for long stretches to attend college in Iowa. Last semester, I was actually studying in Madrid, Spain, so it was even harder to get to festivals! :lol: (I did find a kite shop in my neighborhood, though!!)

Rose that is a great resolution I should probably make the same one and at least post more often. Great to see you back on the forum, I hope you will have a little time to come to some of the club fly and festivals and fly with us.

Welcome back Rose. :mrblue:

Kwel to hear you had a kite store in the neighborhood that you were in out in Spain. Bring anything from that store?

Ahhhh darn am I jealous. When I did a search of the Peoria area, there was one hobby shop that had six plastic diamond kites ... that was it!

Welcome back ... even though I question your planning. Wintering in Spain would seem to have been a better choice.

Cheers,
Tom

Here we are...about two blocks from my apartment in Madrid. It was mostly single lines and decorative stuff, a few dualies, and one rev EXP gathering dust on the back shelf. Nice to see a little something familiar in a strange land though!
The sign says "La Tienda de las Cometas," or "Kite Shop." In Spanish it's the same word for "kite" and "comet," which I always thought was kind of cool.

Hey Rose in that first picture it looks like some nice rolls of rip stop nylon in the background. Nice bright colors.

Welcome back to the States.

Looks like you were staying in a neat area. Cool looking kite shop.
