Well . . . It is possible that you will see us there . . . But we have Valparaiso on Saturday, so it won't be for the whole GLKF event. Maybe next year . . .

Sorry, I was not clear. You should see us there, just not for the whole fest.

Received from MACkite today: "We're actually going to be updating that (performers list) online soon. iQuad will indeed be in Australia this year, but we have another quadline team coming instead. From what I hear, they are as good or better, so we're excited to have them. Good winds, Tena MACkite"

Tell me it's YOU/s!?!?!?!?

I am not aware of anything, but then Mike K. is really the only person who would know. The Gordons were there last year, so maybe they are flying again.

Too Much Fun Revolution Kite Team is on the roster. They are from California, performed at Kite Party last year. Wind Jammers will also be there.
Everything seems so much better when the sky is filled with beautiful colors.

Lovely wife and I will be there from sometime Friday afternoon to about midday Sunday. We'll stay at the Blue Water Inn across from the beach. I'll have kites with me but in my experience it's difficult to find a spot to fly without beach-goers in the way. So we'll probably do more watching and visiting with friends (including fellow IKE-ers).

HKS plans to have a presence this year. I think they'll set up a canopy along "kite club row" (see map below).

They fill up every year for GLKF. The only way to get in is to ask to be put on their waiting list. Everyone who stayed during the kite festival last year gets "dibs" on the same room next year. The only way to get a room is if someone who was there last year decides not to return. That's how we got in last year ... someone canceled at the last minute, we got their room, and now we have it every year until we don't return.

I agree, "Too Much Fun" and the "Windjammers" are awesome and will certainly wow the crowd!

...hopin' to see 180GO! on the schedule next year too! :up:

Arrrgh! I can't be there and I really wanted to get there this year. Just too busy and Summer weekends are too valuable to miss work around here. I miss flying . I hope in a year I'll be freed up enough to make it. I'm still looking forward to the unofficial IKE retreat. Last weekend in September I think. correct?

That's the plan. Nothing arranged yet but it's in my calendar.
