Hello Everyone!!!

Postby THE ONE » Fri, Oct 14 2011, 07:03 AM

Hi everybody, my name is Paul and as of this morning a member of IKE. It is great to see people out there that share the same passion as I do, kite flying. I cannot wait to meet some of you and learn from you. :up:

Welcome Paul!
If you've got time this weekend, a bunch of us will be here.

Does your kiting passion tend to go towards duals? or Quads? Maybe line laundry and single line kites? All of it?

Hi Mike and thanks for the warm welcome. I have looked this morning at that retreat but unfortunatelly will not be able to make it, my wifes birthday. I am sure I can figure out other time to meet with you all.

As far as my passion, I am a dual person, did my share of single lines and foils, but right now my focus is on stunt kites.

Welcome Paul,,

I am no longer the 'newest member..'. This weekend is my 1st 'retreat', and I'll be flying duals... We'll see how my kite sickness will spread.

Welcome to IKE!

We'll have to connect some time. I'm missing the retreat as well, so maybe we'll have to have a club fly for the "we missed the retreat" crowd!

Thank you so much for all the warm welcome. At some point I will meet you all and see what you are all about, but in the mean time, from the posts that I have read, 90% of members fly quads. Is this a true statement? The reason why I ask is becasue where I live there are no dual flyers, I have not seen any, but I know the best way to learn is to learn from other people.

Well . . . I think there are quite a few dual flyers around, but the most active members on IKE (recently) are (mostly) quad flyers. But, that said, we welcome everyone. I was never very good at flying dual line, but I know there are IKE members who can do a lot with two lines. A bunch of the active members who fly quads also fly dual line kites too (and we all fly SLKs - some a little, others a lot).

Paul,

We can both be learners. I live in Wheaton, and am working on my "duals".
