I know it is already thursday evening, but I was wondering if anybody would like to try again this weekend for some team practise?

Both saturday and sunday look very good for winds, sunday (14), saturday (11).

Who, Where, When any thoughts?

Even if I were a Packer fan, I'd rather be out flying.

I AM a Cub fan, and even if their playoff game is during the day Saturday, I'll be flying.

Great practice today. We could see improvements in everyone's flying by the end of the day.
Tom came by and flew with us too.
We did a 5-kite mega fly for about 1 1/2 hours with Tom, Nick, Ken, me, and Mike S. and Zach (Bean) taking turns. All did great and by the end we were doing some really nice circles on our follows.
We had planned to stop at 4:00 but didn't leave until 5:30. Too much fun!

Hello,
Great Practice. Thanks to everyone: Mike, Ken, Tom, and Marla it was a very nice day! Thanks Mike for encouraging me to go out and fly in the "Mega" Fly.

PS: Tom you can't deny that you were flying a quad and enjoying it. Probably gonna be some dual line kites for sale out of your bag soon.
