Good Morning :)
I was in middle of answering emails about the Valparaiso fest (which is at the same time as Grand Haven), planning two different trips to California and one to New York and flipping the calendar back and forth and my poor aging brain hiccuped.

Saw Shari, Mikey, Dave, Eric & Jim on the beach today. Peggy & I will probably set up our blue ez-up canopy somewhere near the performance field tomorrow. I'll be wearing an HKS shirt. Look for us!

So it looks like I'll just make a long day of it, and be there for Saturday. What time do people hit the beach?
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

So far so good! Nice to see you guys today. We left around 2, looks like wind had died. Tomorrow is looking warm with about 8mph. Should be pretty good.

Successfully added two kites to my bag in the name of"but honey, this will get you out flying with me!". Added my first foil-1.2snapshot and my first slk, a premier star. Couldnt believe how cheap it was!

Thank you Jay for assisting with the night fly! I was 1of2 that made it in the air (except for the motorized kite...cheater! Gonna have to look into that!) in next to 0mph. I was just stubborn enough to try and fly longer. Thank god it was dark and i couldn't see all the people around watching. But the kite looked pretty good :)

Hope to see some of you tomorrow

Jim

Great pictures. Thanks.

It's funny how one can quickly identify Rev flyers by looking at their backside. And single line fliers by looking at their kites. I see Sam's stack, Darryle Waters' pilot and Penguin, etc..

But, I don't recognize the three Delta Conyne kites. What do you know about them or their owner?

Cheers,
Tom

I like your DC's Say.

Was that a real Ken McNeill Ichiban in the first couple of photos? I hear Ken's making them again in small batches. I wish I could afford one. Just beautiful and great fliers to boot.
