My only vented is my supersonic ... but that's probably enough wind to mess around with my progressive stack if anyone is interested.

Maybe Big Mike can persuade me to buy a mid vent to compliment my b-series full sail... (assuming he brings any ... I like blue, btw) :jester:

Nice! That looks like great weather for both days!
Looking forward to hanging out with everyone on, and off, the beach.

Agreed. If you have an unsold IKE hoodies, you might want to bring them along, That breeze will probably be pretty cool in the morning. The temperature probably won't get up to the forecast high of 64 until 2 p.m. or so.

Scored my IKE t-shirt off of Mike (er. Bruce) Kory at last year's retreat. Guess it was an extra from a previous order at the screen printer. Dunno if he'll have any extra merch this weekend. Also, check out this thread from Shari from earlier this year.

Just walked out to beach and wind is an easy 10-15 knots straight off lake. Going back to get something that flys and set up to right of creek. Oh wait, after breakfast! See you all when you get here. Park opened at 7 and not a soul around. :-P

Hey guys,

I had an awesome time today. Thanks for being such a supportive group. While I fully acknowledging the fact that I still have lots to learn, my big take-away from the day is that my skills are better then I thought. :)

It was good to meet many of you in person. I sent out a bunch of FB friend requests to people, but I'm sure I missed a few since I'm bad with names, so you can find me here: https://www.facebook.com/swannie

Thanks again!!!
