We did get to meet the locals and did a short mega fly at the end of the day.
Below is a link to a video of one of the super sonic pirates routine. You would think by watching it that we were all on our 5th cup of coffee.

Look at Mike get yanked around by the ~30mph gusts. :D
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

Cool. Looks like the wind was blowing . . . almost a bit too much.

You know . . . . speaking of Supersonics . . . we could put together a routine (or at least a mini mega fly) with the speed series. Now that would be an interesting experiment (maybe we shouldn't film it . . . . ). How many speed series do we have in the club? I can bring a few to the next club fly . . . :twisted:

As one of the "locals", I'd like to thank the entire 180 Go team for inviting us to fly with ya'll!

Sorry I was such a weak link, but I (we) had fun!

I've seen a Japanese team that flew Blasts, but I haven't seen supersonics. We'd have to do flic-flacs. Supersonics love to do those.

I wish the wind was more cooperative and we could have flown more together. Maybe we can find a location between us and have a club fly where we all get together and do a Rev mega fly / clinic / etc.

Well, I don't have any Supersonic revs but I do have a Shockwave and Blast . . . Can we mix and match a bit?

That would be awesome!
If not sooner, maybe in August at Balloons and Tunes?
