Thats mighty nice of you Mike. I will let you know when we will arrive for sure a week or so before the fest. I can't wait. Get out of the cold for a while.

. . . just happened to be on the SWA site tonight looking at some stuff and my flights to LAX dropped another $20. $200 RT to LAX from Chicago, nonstop, Friday to Monday. I keep saying it doesn't get better, and then it does. Rebooked again. I think if you are really flexible you might be able to drop it another $10-20 by flying on different days (but of course then you might have more hotel nights). Of course, I'll have to deal with the 405 to get to HB & KP X . . . . .

FYI for everybody going to KPX, Dave just posted up a new registration site here, so you might want to head over there and get registered. He's put a notice out on the gwtwforum that you need to reregister on the site even if you've already sent him an email . . . .

Thanks, I just got an email from Dave and was going to post the same thing. The front page of the site has a nice bunch of photos too
http://www.kiteparty.com/

I like how Dave added Mikey and Shari's name on the list of people registered :
Mikey & Shari Devereaux: Kankakee, IL (IKE Member)…bet they never have to spell their last name or city for people!


We need more IKE Members on that list! Sign up and go! It's really the best fest there is if you want to spend time with a bunch of like-minded friends.

Look at the info page there too. He only mentions one Club from the whole country, and guess which one it is? I'll give you a hint: they will be wearing their red shirts on Saturday morning.

There's probably too many people that would need new shirts. Other than the Midwesterners, there's also California members and some East Coast members that show up at HB. It's a hassle to get the word out to everyone and not everyone may want a new shirt, and then getting sizes and collecting money....
I have offered to re-do some if we had enough foreign members show up. I was going to cross out Illinois and change it to International Kite Enthusiasts :)

BTW, I still have some IKE shirts left over if anyone needs one.

I also got a kick out of how he listed our names. Kinda funny that a fest on the west coast and the most prominent kite club is a couple thousand miles away. Do you have my jacket Mike? I forgot about it until you mentioned the shirts.
Also Jynx needs to get IKE put down by her name!

Agreed with all Mikey said.

On the topic of the shirts . . . . I know. I was (pretty much just) kidding. It's the kid in me that wants the "concert t-shirt" to prove I was there. I know it's a lot of work/hassle to deal with getting the printing done, payments, etc. etc.

Maybe if we had an IKE KP-X logo, you could just put it out there on cafepress or something like that for people to order if they wanted it. I know they are not cheap . . . . but then there's no pressure on anyone to get the printing / payment done. Maybe I'll get one for David . . .

"My dad went to KP-X with IKE and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt!"

Somehow I think he wouldn't wear it . . . .

Mikey: yup, I have your 180GO! jacket,( and Jeff's and David's)

Steve: last I checked, doing a Cafepress solid red shirt was very expensive (edit: it's $30). I'll look into it though, if there's enough interest.
Dave Shenkman will be selling Kite Party t-shirts, so you will be able to get a souvenir, even if it's not as good as an IKE one.

Don't worry about it. I didn't know Dave was selling T-shirts. Maybe I'll get one of those - and I will bring my IKE shirt for Saturday.

Last I checked, KP registration was up to 40 or 41 people. Looking forward to it!

Yeah, but I just googled it and the skies in New Smyrna are Partly Cloudy! Ha! So it's not so perfect after all!

I've tried to register twice, and still my name doesn't appear. :|
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

I think Dave is approving each registration individually. It's not an automatic process.
Glad you're going; what dates will you be there?

Working that out still. I'm assuming that I'll travel Thursday, or possibly early Friday, and leave on Monday.

For sure! We've got 3 members of the "GO" part of the team coming so far. How many of the "Riders" are attending?
