Hey everyone,

In Feb & March, I flew a total of once. This weekend, Danny & I had a major relapse and flew everything in the garage, neglected duals, quads, SLK'S, including the pirate ship. We're back :piratecap: !

Great idea, your own kite festival!

That's AWESOME! I have managed to fly quite a bit this winter from 8-28degrees. but I really needed to get better! My learning curve was nowhere near my desired goals! However I was totally surprised on EASTER to see about 12 kites up in the air as i pulled up to what has been MY field for the last year! maybe I have inspired some people to blow the dust off and come out and play with me as spring takes it's time getting here!

I don't know about your side of the lake but the winds have been GREAT on the east side! maybe a bit high but at least they are blowing and the sun is shining more often :)

This April, 2013, I have flown 6 times and demonstrated and given away 25 modified sled kites made of copy paper, yarn thread and Scotch tape. My goal is 100 kites flying before May 1st, here in Oak park, Illinois. Carl kidskites

An admirable goal. You're going need some good weather to meet it in the next couple weeks. I'm pulling for ya!

That's great! I hope you reach your goal. And I hope we get to see you at some festivals.

Is your kite the "M" kite? If so, I think you gave one to my son about 2 or 3 years ago.

I got it 6 years ago. It's a "Go fly a kite" which was bought by Sky Dog. It's only flown 2x, and spends more time hanging in the garage. We've decided to go to G. Haven. Are you going to Wheaton's "Go fly a kite" gig this weekend?

Sorry for the confusion, my reply was to Carl.

I hope to make it to the Wheaton fest (between 1 and 3 only) due to other commitments that will have me driving my kids everywhere this weekend.

Too bad Steve. That was my maiden kite festival voyage. I have lots of toys now, but am working a lot.

Don't try going to the wheaton festival this year . . . it's been cancelled due to flooding :(
