Kites On My Mind

Which means there's something on it, anyway. :P

This coming Saturday (Feb 20) a bunch of folks up in Madison are having the Madtown Snowkite Gathering (http://mb.kiteridersllc.com/viewtopic.php?t=1486), wind permitting. The video from last year was spectacular. They had a ton of board-and-ski types, a lot of power-kite demos, and lots of fun. I'm planning on being there, and thought there might possibly be a couple of other folks interested.

Also, 7-10 mph winds predicted for Northerly Island on Sunday. In an effort to make this an all-kite weekend for myself, anybody interested in meeting up at NI on Sunday afternoon? It's supposed to be a balmy 34F. :up:

Man, I missed that one - I vaguely recall hearing about it, but I didn't realize when it was. :roll: Oh well. Happens a lot now that I'm getting old... :?

You guys have fun in Iowa. :up:

I am itching to fly. If the temperature and wind are decent, I'm in. If there are only a few of us, we can call before we go.

What time are you thinking?

I'm thinking 11:00-ish to "whenever we're too cold to fly", so we can get the warmest part of the day.... 8)

If you haven't heard from me before you head out, give me a call, and I'll do the same (well, I'll call you, not myself). Not enough kite flying is making my brain hurt.... :P

I've got a work thing that may be a problem tomorrow - if I can finish before too late, I'd still be able to make it, but it's not looking good. :cry:

John, if you guys decide to go, still give me a call; I'll see if I can break away then. But it's very iffy at this point.

Thanks,
-Wendy
