There was an endless barrage of insults being hurled from the dual line field... us quad people never do anything without a reason...lol

We had a great time, wanted to give Paul another big thank you for all he did the burgers were some of the best I have ever had. Every time we go to a festival the kite flying is good but the friendships we are building are the truly the best thing about being part of IKE. Thanks everyone for such a great time and I look forward to see you all again soon (Grinnell).

p.s. I hope the hotel in Grinnell has a pool that was to much fun lol. :rotfl

In that case:

i'm positive that i won't say anything negative about quad kites at Grand Haven.

Or...

i'm negative and i won't say anything positive about quad kites at Grand Haven!

i guess i'll deserve a lot of CANNONBALLS from you carnivores! :roll: :mrblue:

The 180GO group was very entertaining for our flyers. They did a lot of flying both days and people always like to watch and ask - "How do you do that?" I think they enjoyed the audience also. We look forward to having them with us next year.

Paul Krekel was very helpful since he is from the school and Decatur. We relied on him for several things during the festival and he came thru each time. Please be sure to recognize that for the IKE group.
