Have the projects been picked?
I would like to see maybe a cellular, flowform, and like a rok or something. I really like the chopstick.
could pair up a couple classes so you have appliqué techniques with a build so they would go together.

I'm sure some of these might have been done in the past.

just thinking out loud and sharing thoughts/ideas.

Off the top of my head, I'm looking at these:
10' Genki
Modern Marconi
Platz Glider
No-Sew Baby Rokkaku

The no-sew, taping technique sounds interesting.
I've always meant to make a full sized Genki, and I bet I could learn a lot from Brian.
The Marconi looks cool, but it conflicts with the Genki class. Decisions, decisions.
I've seen Chris's Platz, and it's really cool.

It would be neat if the club had a couple Bols for Bol races at festivals.

hmmmm, some great sewers and neat kites being offered this year.

The website has been updated, check out all the cool pictures. The registration form is posted, time to download and mail it in. some tough choices to make as to which class you want.
Does IKE have a club kite? The Baden-Powell makes a great billboard. I bet Rob would do a sail in either white or red for you to add the club graphic onto.

Before I forget, LOVE the count down to MAKR clock on the home page!
Time to get those registrations off in the mail. The instructors are starting to wonder how many kits they need to prepare.

Hope to see many of you this weekend in Two rivers.

I believe the above poster is spam--don't click on the link in "her" signature.

How did you get started in kiting?

(everyone else: you can probably look up Turing Test in wikipedia)
