Wish I could have made it up to Grand Haven. Maybe next year.

Anyone going to Milwaukee next weekend? I mean, in addition to Jynx!! :wink:

It's one of the closer fests for me, so yes, I'll be there.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

Saw Jeff & Jynx there!

Had a good time on Saturday . . . although the wind was light & variable part of the day, it came on strong in the late afternoon. Lots of great team flying to watch & we finally bailed after (I think) seven plus hours out on the field. Plenty of big show kites as well later in the day. Both my kids got some time on the rev handles . . . which is great! Plus they put up a couple SLKs.

Sunday . . . . not so much. We showed up to fog & no wind . . . not even the teams were flying . . . other than some zero wind rev flying and some RC kites (and not much of that). When the rain started . . . we called it a day and headed out.

We drove up on Sunday, just in case, but knowing we might have to find something else to do. It was raining when we got to town, so we took the kids to the Children's Museum. Unfortunately, the weather never let up.
