Wheaton, IL Kite Festival - April 21st

Postby goestoeleven » Sun, Apr 01 2012, 11:20 PM

Can't help but plug the home town festival. This is where I was introduced to the dark side of rev flying just two years ago . . . and that's all I'm going to say. Plus I saw Chicago Fire and Zack Gordon doing things with kites that I didn't even know were possible. I still can't do most of the things they do . . . .

Connor & Amy Doran will be at Wheaton as well . . . . Connor was on America's Got Talent, and I'm sure he'll have some tricks to show . . . .

And the Daily Herald wrote up a short article as a "preview" Link is here

And I'm sure Amy will be doing her routine too. Say hi to "Charlie" for me.

Ah . . . . I did not get that reference at first. I thought you meant Charlie Sotich or some other Charlie. But, clearly not. I will post some pictures later . . .

She did her routine, and we had great performances by Conner, Chicago Fire, and Fire & Ice, despite some pretty variable winds. I didn't get to fly as much as I'd like . . . . so maybe I'll get out a bit today / later this afternoon.

I also got to meet TMadz (Todd) from Sugar Grove and also some of the Milwaukee crew (Brett, Don, and Sid (Don's girlfiend).
