Yesterday, I flew kites. Some people and kids almost flew their kites on the wrong side , but I stopped them and adjusted their kites. They launched up their kites.
:-) I talked with NIU students and DeKalb people with my hands. This was my second kites festival in DeKalb. I am planning to go next year. :up:

Kathy, it was nice having you there. I appreciate all your work with the spectators. I'm glad to hear some of them could sign with you.

Chris and 180 Go! You guys did a great job working those winds. It's appreciated, and I'm glad to return the favor a small way.

I started a photo pool on Flickr. http://www.flickr.com/groups/dekalbkitefestival/ As always the biggest challenge when recruiting help/sponsors is getting people to understand what the event is. A picture goes along ways in communicating it to folks. Many photos go even further. I realize the kiters don't have alot of time to be snapping shots, but wanted to get this out there to see what's around for pics.

TTFN,
Christy

You were missed Tom. Hopefully we'll make it to the same festival yet this year.

It was a Baptism party... and though i'm very into spiritual things, i'm sure not into organized religion; so it was rather meaningless to me. There sure were a lot of family members there though and we got to see my niece's new house. i would rather to have been kiting! :wink:
