Hey there Pontiac folks:
where do you usually fly? Out near the road, where the festival was?
Or further back, near the ball fields?

We fly out by the road where the festival was held, we park on the blacktop turn around where the vendors were setup. We should be there by 10:00, Nick will be a little later around 11:00 or so. Look forward to seeing every one.

Well once again a great day of flying with old and new friends. Joy it was nice to meet you, along with Shawn(brownssl?).

Also we will be in the local paper again, a reporter stop by the field to take a few shots of our flying. As he was on his way to a local football game. 8)

Winds were great all day long. Zack(bean) you were doing great with the team flying!!! Keep practicing! :up: Backdraft you will get passed the hurdle of mixing it up with us in no time, you too Ann. :up:

Sitting around afterwards eating pizza was a great way to end the day. The only sad note for the day had to be that it was the last day of being able to fly past four o clock, Crappy daylight savings!! :evil: :P

Looking forwards to seeing everybody next sunday out in Napervillie, for I will be out there too.

I had a wonderful time too. It was nice to meet even more kite people. 8)

Thanks for letting me fly one of your Rev's Mike. You're a good instructor. It was fun flying it.

Wanna also thank Tom for the dual line tutoring and also for breaking out that vibrant citrus Zephyr for me to zoom around in the sky for a few minutes.

I'm sure we'll meet up again soon. Today I may be resting. I was worn out by the time I got home yesterday. My face is all sunburned and I'm still dragging this morning.

Later,
weld :up:

So that's what the "thanks" button does... I wondered about that.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

We were hoping to make at least one of these but time will tell if Naperville works for us.

Now I'm signed in....and DeKalb has a new kiter....that I'm about to bust about....and it's not my story to tell....so I'm signing off...(ask kitebutt to tell you!)
TTFN,

Nice to see you, Ann & family again in Pontiac this weekend. Got signed up tonight & will start looking at the kite sites for some airborne toys...
Am sure we'll see you around as long as there is wind...

For Naperville, I will not be there until about noon... I'm scheduled to play at church that day.... had to do it that way in order to get the weekend of the 17th off..

Thanks Darlene!

Note the nice new duds we are wearing.
From left to right:

Wasn't easy to hide behind me, was it Mike?

The photo must have been taken early in the day as we were still flying ultra-lights.
