I've never gone to that one, and I don't think many of the Wisconsin or IKE kiters go. My concern is don't think they rope off any of the field for sport kite flying, and because of the fireworks, people will be covering the field. Of course, you can always go for the fireworks and see if you can get any flying in during the day..

Did you go?
I've been a few times, years ago. Back then they did rope off an area for kiters, but the crowd didn't like us much. Folks there arrive early in the day to reserve their spot and the roped off area took up a large amount of space that they couldn't use. As the park became more and more crowded the spectators became more and more unhappy.
We did get front row seats for the fireworks though!

Sorry about the wind, but glad you had great fireworks to help make up for it.

Maybe the next club fly in Pontiac will have better weather.
I look forward to meeting you.
