I should be able to join you at some point. Saturdays are not usually that great for me due to kid's sports and activities, but I might be able to do something. There are a couple festivals that weekend - Outta Sight, up in Wisconsin, and Naperville. What are your plans? Where are you staying?

Hey . . . looking forward to it. I have a Boy Scout troop picnic right in the middle of the afternoon, but I'll try to be there before and after.

Assuming I can make it, can I ask you guys for some Blender practice? I need to run through the blender a bunch of times at positions 2 & 3 so I can burn it into memory. I think we'll have enough people for at least a four person, and maybe six if there are some other rev pilots there.

Hi all,
Psyched for Naperville tomorrow.
Sadly tho, I have to bail out around 1:30 or so; need to bwe back downtown by 3pm

Hoping I can fly OPK as I only bought short lines and a beater kite for flying around Buckingham Fountain.\
Maybe you guys will let me fly a 180Go sail!!!!!!!! yea, that's the ticket!

It was good to see everyone again today.

Shari and Mikey, thank you for the personal Rev lessons. I really had an Aha moment. I'm looking forward to ordering my EXP. And a set of snagless handles.

Sorry I missed you guys today. One thing lead to another with a conference I was working and before I knew it it was 2pm and I had another conference to set up.

Hope you all had a great day despite the weather.

Will touch base when I know i'll be back in town..

Considering the rain and inconsistent wind, I had a great time. The layout was even better than last year and well organized.

I didn't know Penguins could fly.
