I think those photos from the paper, were taken from the guy who was on his way to a football game. When he saw us flying and stopped to take some shots.

Here is the link to the photos Anne took at Pontiac Saturday. We had a great time and it was nice to see every one (new and old members). We would also like to welcome all the new members its great to see such a good group of people so close to home.

As always Shawn, if your friend would like to try flying our quads, just say so and the lessons will begin. :up:

It will also be nice seeing you again too.

Absolutely, Roxy.

The forecast changes everyday, so I'm gonna ignore it and assume good winds and nice weather.

Guess I'm over excited or mental, maybe a combination. I just packed the car thinking it was tomorrow, also took the day off work. See you all there.

I never unpacked my car from last weekend, so I've been ready all week. Probably have 30 or 40 kites in the van, just in case. :-D Before you ask, lets see: a bunch of Revs (rev 1, 6 rev IIs (4 home-made), Supersonic, 3 Vented 1.5s, 2 SULs, SLE, 3 homemade revs, Backtracker Rev, Progressive stack of 3), 6 or 7 Roks, a Spirit, a few fighter kites, 5 pyros, a few flowforms and pilots, Mimi, a Guitar shaped kite, and I don't know what else.

Since I'm getting there late, all I'll probably fly is one Vented Rev. :oops:

Any updates on the rain for tomorrow?

Rain rain go away PLEASE! :cry:

If it's calling for rain most of the day, I'm taking a pass due to my driving / eyesight if it's going to be raining. Maybe I can just take the power kite out and hope it blows me in that direction.
