Im so bummed that I missed it, but had a super busy day at work. I will defintely have some time coming up after the middle of October.

Swannie, I've gotten out to the SG sports complex a few times to fly my EXP. I wish I had more time to put up my SLK's but I'll take what I can get.

I hope I can meet up with the local guys soon.

Cool, trying to get something together with Xsai and Jim ... maybe at an in-between spot (Xsai is in Elgin, and not sure wehre Jim is). What days of the week work for you? ... maybe I should start another thread?

Do you guys want a fourth? Depending on the kid's activities, my work, and my wife's work, I may be able to join you guys somewhere out there.

(Time for a new thread :-) :up: )

Are any of the FB photos visible to people who don't have FB accounts? If so, could someone post URLs?

Had a great time this weekend and it was great to put names and faces together. I know where my rev skills stand and plan on being right in there for the next retreat for sure and Jim, congrats on the team fly, just watching from the line made my heart beat faster. I don't think its the fact there are kites all twisting lines up, its the concern of how long it will take me to clean up the mess I make. :o) Steve, your welcome to camp with us any time, had a great time. I hear they are making a 30' mesh Delta now! ;o) with that and a 50' nemo, I cant be beat! LOL. Anyway, as everyone is thinking, snow is coming and hope to get together again before that happens.

Zero.... sorry :)

Swannie.. i'm on the other side of the lake in michigan, just north of south bend in Niles. The dunes are about an hour from me. I'm willing to drive a bit though to fly with your guys

Mytoys... I saw you making some real progress yesterday! I'll twist lines with you anytime! I was new to revs last year and think i can atleast hold my own. I'm kinda a Big BLock Chevy racing with a bunch of Porsche right now :)

Absolutely. I feel like Xs.. Xia... X.. Zero and myself are at similar skill levels, so flying with others would probably help us both. The more the marrier as far as I'm concerned. :)

My parents have a place in Macatawa (right next to Holland) I'll have to remember that for when we're up there next summer. Niles isn't too far away.

Thanks. Nice pics. One of my favorites is this one, because the kite I was flying (one of Mike's) is pretty much in the right place (for once)!
