I wanted to say thanks to those that allowed me to pick up the handles on several different kites over the weekend. Had a chance to fly Steve's Rev I, Jynx's Polo, Mark's Rev II, Shari's Rev II as well as a quite a few others that I can't recall. That was fun. And the first time that I've felt comfortable doing so.

Recalling Jynx's Polo kite got me looking around at their site. Oh oh.

You were just as generous with your kites, Bill! Thanks for the ride on the Rev 2!

Great photos, Bill, especially the mesh delta. That one is kite-calendar material!

Now you got me interested in the Polo. Damn you! That is definitely IKE colors.

In the past, Mike has taken IKE gear orders before the retreat. Did we forget to do that this year? In person-delivery at the retreat saves on shipping charges!
