QUIT holding ME over the pins and needles, how was it out there? :roll:

You know this one is in my backyard, so does it have a chance to grow with some love and care or not?!!
Were the wind any light and more managable then where I was this weekend?

Or did Knoted4ever SCARE everybody with bashing the crap out of us Quad fliers?!! :evil: :roll:

It was a small turnout, but a great event overall. Geoff and his volunteers(sorry, I don't remember every ones names :oops: ) are a fantastic group of people. I enjoyed helping with the kite making, and playing with Paul Bunyon. Thanks to everyone involved for making Tom and I feel welcome. I look forward to next year, and watching this event grow!
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

i had a great time even though the weather turned out to be quite rotten! The folks attending were very friendly and fun to be with! It was a great time! What a beautiful campus! i love the emphasis on artistic realms and sculpture there; very nice indeed! i think if they put out fliers (no pun intended) out at local schools and advertise more on the radio... it would help with the attendance.

Looking forward to next time!

Hey Tom, you got quoted in this news article...

http://www.southtownstar.com/neighborho ... te.article

Although, the paper gave itself credit that it shouldn't have taken. You didn't hear about the event in the paper, you heard it here!
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

That's great Tom.
The paper got Lam's country wrong too. He's from Vietnam. :-)
