For those of you who don't do Facebook, here's an album with some nice photos that Jeff took:

Nice pictures. Looks like a great time at a not-too-crowded-to-fly festival. I've been watching your flying fun (and car challenges) on FB. My son David especially likes the flying from inside the tent and the "DANGER STUNT KITES" sign. I noticed that Big Mike is flying two revs at the same time when Jeff was taking one of the pictures of you guys in the tent.

Now for the threadjack . . . Click [strike]this link[/strike] link below for a pic of us flying last Sunday at Greene Valley that I posted up over on FB . . . David is sporting the IKE colors, and we're having a little bit of fun with the kites. We're doing the same move as one of your album pix. (I hope the link works)

Edited - 2nd try (hopefully with the public link) link

- Steve

David, I don't think your album is set as public, so only your Facebook friends can see it.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

Whichever Facebook page it's on (Steve/David) I can't see it either. We'll get this photo problem sorted out soon...

If you go to your Facebook album page, look down at the bottom. There's a line that says:

"Share this album with anyone by sending them this public link:" with a link after it.

Use that link, and anyone can view that album.

OK, I edited the original post. Hopefully this time I copied the correct link.

It works now. Great photo too.
A "kiss" or "leading edge lock"; very impressive!

Thanks! We were having fun and it was a great day for flying here in Chicago last Sunday. We only managed it a couple times . . . most of the other attempts were a bit more . . . impactful or glancing. We also managed to stack my kite under his a couple times, but I don't think we got a good picture of that bit of fun.

Judging by the video, I'd say Mike needs an anchor! Looks like you had plenty of wind!
