Latest update:
Big Mike and Anne, Mikey and Shari, Steve, and I have our flights booked and a condo reserved.
Jim and Lynn foster will be there too.
That's 8 club members so far...
It'd be cool to have a line (or two!) of red IKE shirts for the megafly. Are you up for that Jim and Lynn?

We need two more at least:
David? Jynx? Jeff?

Yes, but are they going to WSIKF or some other place Dave?

Just returned from a week flying single line and Rev kites on the beach in Cabo. Talked Jim and Lynn into attended this year, so we had fun flying team off-and-on during the week.

Yep, Jo Ann and I are still on for WSIKF. Think this year I'll concentrate on being a Rev pilot.

Cheers,
Tom

Unfortunately, we are already on the road and left our IKE shirts at the condo in Southern California.

No red shirts. Also, we are already committed to the fifth column. It's made up of some east coasters and some west coasters.
There will be lots of time for us all to get together in lines and grids. This should be one huge party in the air, to say nothing about what goes on at the pizza parlor. Will be a fun week.

If we can count on Jynx and Jeepster for our column, then I think we have eight nine so far. I'm counting as follows:
- Mike
- Mikey
- Big Mike
- Steve Mike
- David (cadguy)
- Shari
- Jynx
- Jeepster
- Anne

Maybe we can bring a few extra shirts, and grab some spare pilots for our IKE column.

Excellent! I didn't forget - I just didn't want to "volunteer" Anne publicly without hearing that she wants to be in the grid! YAHOO!! Very happy to hear that Anne will be in the column! I'll edit my original post . . .

I think I misunderstood what you're counting. I thought you were working on red ike shirts for pictures.

I am counting pilots for the column.

Based on my experience in 2011, I think it will involve a lot of hovering in position, some vertical and horizontal threading, and probably ball-and-burst skills. That's probably about it, although possibly "benefits" as well. The wind will probably be pretty good (vented) on the beach when they make the attempt. Is Anne up for that? We can practice with her . . . .

I'm betting some of the same people who so eagerly loan kites will be happy to loan you a couple of shirts!
I decided I needed a signature line, so I wrote this.

Have to figure out how much time I can get away for, but I'm 95% sure I'll be there at least Fri-Sun.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!
