Huzzah! But doesn't 180 Go! have a gig in Iowa that day? If you're not doing the 180 Go! thing, we'll be thrilled to have you at Shipshewana!

I'll have my new Rev there, but will probably be too busy with announcer chores all day to do any flying. Last I heard, Trigger's planning to be there with his Rev. And one of the Windjammers usually brings a Rev for a solo demo ... maybe you guys can team up!

OBTW, when you see me, be sure to get a handful of my new "kite festival announcer" business cards to throw in your bag, in case you ever meet any event organizers who need an announcer.

In anticipation of this Saturday's Kite Komotion event in Shipshewana, WNDU Channel 16 of South Bend did an early-morning live interview with HKS Vice President, Lynn Warner. Clicking on the link below will take you to one of two videos. A link to the second video can be found just below the video viewing window.

Dude! Sounds like someone needs a calendar! Really glad you'll make it for at least part of the time. Come find me in the announcer tent when you arrive.

For anyone navigating to the event by GPS, here's what you want to enter:

760 S. Van Buren Street
Shipshewana, IN 46565

That will get you to the building that houses both the Towne Center event facility and the Hudson car museum. Kite fliers park behind that building, near the water tower.

just wanted to mention that a new Rev team from Columbus, OH will be attending.
Team Air-mania.... consisting of a veteran flier, a couple 2nd year fliers, a recent transplant from Ireland, and sometimes a guy from Dayton. Planning to arrive around 10 am.

Guess that's a good excuse! Please feel free to relay to the WKC folks the GPS info above.

Cool, indeed! I'm excited that we'll have so many fliers there, including TWO sport kite teams (Windjammers & Air-mania), two pairs (Fire & Ice and Blues Brothers), some soloists and many single-line displays. Plus the weather forecast is sunshine & mid 60s. This could be the best Kite Komotion ever!

Great to see you, Trigger. Very sorry we had so little time to chat, but that's how it is for a festival announcer! There's a little fun fly happening in Kendallville, Indiana on Mother's Day. Info is on the HKS website. Don't know yet if we're going. I'll be at the St. Jonh's, Michigan festival May 5.
