Well,, it's about time that I join in on the fun with everyone from IKE :LogoRevAni:
Those of you who attended KP 7 will know me as the guy that flew the traction kite over by the pier on Saturday, scaring off all the Rev pilots nearby....LOL

My name is Jeff Bigelow, and I've been flying since 1989. mostly deltas and traction till Dave Shankman @ kite connection hooked me up with a SLE :revspin: at Kite Party 7, and I've been sick with it since. Johnny B. and Big Ben have "tried" :rotfl to show me some things, but as I've found out, it's all about practice, practice, practice. I originally started flying in Long Beach Ca., but now live in Stockton, where it's either 15mph or higher winds, or dead calm. Frustrating as heck, but still fun none the less. glad to be here with other flyers and share the joy of silent flight on strings :up: .............

Jeff

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Rev.

Our home is in Walnut Grove, not too far from you. Where do you fly in Stockton? When we get back to Walnut Grove, perhaps we can get together for a Rev fly. Currently we are on a long winter trip, but should return to Walnut Grove in late spring. We are in San Diego, on our way to Quartzsite AZ, then South Padre Island Texas before we head back to Kite Party in Huntington Beach. Are you going to Kite Party this year?

Also, for flying in the Delta, you may want to get a vented 1.5 to add to your kite bag. I know that "Delta Breeze" can get pretty good.

Great to have you here: welcome, welcome.
I hope you make the drive down to KP this year. I'll have to order some more red IKE shirts!

Please do, Mike.
BIG red shirts: 3x for myself as well as my friend Lyle Walter. He's the guy at KP that has all the patriotic Suttons and line laundry. He flys out of Seal Beach, and is a member of IKE also.
I'll be on the Harley and headed south around March 10th.

Thanks to you all for the warm welcome. :thanks:

It's usually Saturday, but we'll see when the date gets closer and who will be there on what days.
