Did We Ever Get A Name For That One Formation...?

That thing we do after the Fountain...where the top kite drops down and the others turn down as the lowering kites pass, and then do the same going left, one at a time.

The thing at 3:24 of this video.

What is that actually called?

Yep,

It's called "tie my shoe" :wink:

Someone named it that as a joke and it has kinda stuck.

Actually, that second move is just part of the "The fountain" but Mike calls "tie my shoe" because I'm always forgetting about that part. :oops:

I remember calling it that at Oswego...I was hoping for something better. :lol:

I like the formation...there's no reason it can't be done on its own apart from the fountain. I'm pretty sure I've seen iQuad do it by itself.

I'll ask if they have a name for it.

tie my shoe is pretty funny though... if we have to get serious though, maybe something like the cascade down and cascade up?
