Thanks a bunch.

BTW do have any footage of the Brick House routine? I thought we looked pretty tight on that one.

That's the one I'd like to see too. I was happy with how we did, but I thought we got better as the day went on.

That was neat when we were doing the "walking" at the start of the last routine. I could hear laughing from the crowd despite my earpiece and the wind noise. Lots of spectators there on Sunday.

Unfortunately I didn't get any of your other routines due to the demo field thang! I have to learn to pace myself on that stuff and spend more time havin' fun and takin' pics!

Sorry! ...(Now close out and get back to work!)...LOL

WOW, what a great festival we had last weekend in Milwaukee. It truly was
an unbelievable weekend, especially Sunday. The Sheriff told me that the
traffic on Sunday afternoon at one point was backed up to I-794.
Fortunately, he did not yell at me for that. I just want to thank everyone
for working so hard to make this another successful event, especially
Saturday when you all had to run the entire day to keep the kites in the
air. On Sunday night we made all 4 TV stations, the Journal, and several
radio stations. Thanks for chatting with our sponsors, especially Caribou
Coffee. Jim has agreed to be back for Mots, as have several others. It
truly was a fun weekend and it felt good to be back into action with the
Tour. I also want to thank Mr. Kite for coming out and flying the 450 ft
Dragon kite and thanks to 180 GO for making a special appearance. I also
want to personally thank Mike Delfar and Dan Newman for the great plaque
they presented me with during the day on Sunday. WOW guys, I was totally
taken by surprise. That was fun!
