2010:May 29-30, Family Kite Festival -Milwaukee, WI

Postby backdraft » Mon, May 24 2010, 02:10 PM

Just thought I would throw it out there that this weekend is the Family Kite Festival in Milwaukee, WI. Zack, Anne, and I will be heading up on Friday night and staying till Sunday. We will be staying at the Comfort Inn down town and if you talk to Larry he might cut you a deal on the room. If you have never been to one of Scott Fishers festivals, he puts on a great festival and takes great care of the IKE members.

So I hope to see you all out there.

Roll call who’s coming!!!!!!!!

I'll be there, probably with Lauren. Timing is bad for Chris as finals are on Tuesday. Maybe get him up for a short day.

The official times are between 10am-6pm Saturday, and 10-5 on Sunday. Noon is when they do the grand launch and start the professional demos in the performance area.

The location is Veterans Park on the lakefront. Here's the spot: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&ie=UT ... 38581&z=15
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

I'll be there. Chili has a baseball tournament this weekend so I don't think he or MaryKay or Cookie will be around too much.

Any other IKE members going. Saturday's weather is going to be near perfect. :up:

Saturday had the best wind I've had in Milwaukee.
Sunday was the usual: very light. constantly changing directions. At least until Isaac made his sacrifice and left early on Sunday. Really Isaac, the wind picked up and we flew venteds the rest of the day.

Both days had large crowds due to the warm, sunny weather and Scott Fisher took good care of the IKE peoples, keeping us fed and watered.

I have a video that Rose took that I'll try to get up soon.

Nice to see almost everybody in one place.

Thanks to Scott Fisher for a great festival and being so nice to his friends south of the border (I.K.E.)
