John Barresi will be holding a casual clinic at Busse Woods (Ned Brown Forest Preserve) on September 20th and 21st. That is this coming weekend. All those interested are welcome to attend. He will be accepting donations if you feel he has helped you. The clinics will be held in the large field near the Remote Control model flying area, entrance on south side of Golf Road (rte 58) about 1/4 mile east of rte 53/290. There is a traffic light at this entrance. Call John if you have questions at 503-890-0290. Lessons will be available for both dual and quad line, I believe.

Here is John's Facebook event page for it: https://www.facebook.com/events/531021227043805

Also, I have a private lesson scheduled with John on Monday the 22nd. He will take up to three individuals for these sessions. If anyone is interested in what would become a semi-private lesson please get in touch. His lesson info is here: http://johnbarresi.com/kite-lessons-ins ... n/#lessons

I planned to attend John's casual clinic in Cleveland last Sunday but blew it off when I saw the wind forecast (calm). From the photos on Kitelife.com, it appears some people got some stuff in the sky for at least part of the day, but it wasn't worth the risk of a four-hour drive (each way) for me.

My back-up plan was to come to Busse Woods this weekend, but ...
  • Monday, we bought a house.
  • We have a lot to do over the next 45 days to prepare for the move.
  • I'm still planning to spend the entire weekend at the IKE retreat.

So I can't really afford to take a full day this weekend to drive four hours to Busse Woods, play all day and then drive four hours home.

Have fun and give my best to John. See you in a couple weeks at Indiana Dunes.

yeah . . . and I might have even learned something (although hearing it doesn't always transfer into memory, and memory doesn't transfer into flying skill without time on handles)

A good time had by all. Ear-to-ear grins all over the place. hoping to see at least as many at the retreat. See you all there.
