Sounds like you need some stunt kiters ;)

That's a huge field there, tons of room for all kinds of kites. If you're local, check it out today.

Hey everyone,

I went to the DeKalb fest. The wind was a little squirrely but way better than "just good enough". There really was a lot of space and the event was well run. Now it's time to get jacked up for Geneva, and then,,,,, and then,,,, KITE RETREAT.

:piratecap:

P. S.
Mikey, the handles work like a dream. They make all the difference in the world.

They really do make a difference. Trying slides with my little bow tie is tricky enough. It's just practice, practice & practice.
