We're going! I should have David along at a minimum - maybe the whole family. Looking forward to it!

We're currently working our way back from WSIKF. Will knock the sand out of the kite bags and head up for Two Rivers on Friday. Looking forward to see everyone.

Cheers,
Tom

Why bother removing sand? . . . you're just going to be back on the beach at KOLM! It will be good to see you there, and you can give us the full WSIKF report.

:oops: Oh man Jeff, I am so glad that you send something. I would have ended up on the other side of the lake when all the fun was going down in Wisconsin. :thanks:

FYI, according to Chow's site, the 17th street bridge is out, need to use the 22nd street bridge.

One of my favorite bumper stickers is/was "Getting old isn't for wimps". Well, this morning I'm a wimp. Back pain is a little too much for two days on the beach, so will be spending the weekend at home. Sorry to cancel out at he last minute ... was looking forward to seeing everyone.

Cheers,
Tom

What a fun weekend! Beautiful weather, and on Sunday, some of the best wind we've had in a long time.

BTW, I seem to have come home with one fewer chair than I left with--anyone come home with an extra? Or is it still on the beach somewhere...

I think someone did pick up an extra. I forgot who.
