It was too bad about the weatherpeople screwing up once again! :clubfly: The weather was way better than i thought and i had a good time (despite the bad luck with my car). It was nice to see some other dualie guys out there too (like Ted and Jim)!

Special thanks to Ken for saving me from a dreary day at the car repair place... and to infl8able and her husband for the ride back to the car shop; you folks are great! :up:

It came to $435.49 for the car repair! :shock: And with the price of gas being what it is... i am beginning to feel what a black hole is like!

Thanks much, Jeff, for the video!

It was fun flying a seven man team, interesting to say the least at times. Fun none the less.

Yes too bad there was no field markings or sound system. Thanks to Issac for helping us out in a pinch with bringing his radio. :up:

Tom not to worry was glad to help, just glad I wasnt that far from where you were when you called.

Rick and Kara your son is adorable. Jim it was great to see you and family too.

I think I saw this in Oswego but I cannot remember.

Someone was flying a blue canard style single line kite.

I need to make one and am wondering what plan (if it was home built) was used to make it. Was this something done at MAKR this year?
