Hello everyone...
What a great time! Flying was fantastic. Even more amazing were all the great people I met! How cool to finally meet some of the folks we chat with on this forum; and give a face to a username. You are all so incredibly nice!
I'll post some photos and videos of some of the competitions in the next couple days. (It won't be quite as many as usual as I was flying quite a bit. I need to shower and go veg for a bit.
Love to all...
Ps. Scott, thank you so much for showing me the "ropes" and introducing me to your wonderful friends.
Laura

Kinky!!!!

Laura, I can't wait to see the pictures!

If anyone else has any please post them!

My camera battery died early in the week so I didn't get any shots of rev flying.

Alden, there are some cool pics here:


I agree tho, I can't wait to see Laura's shots. :)

I'm ~totally~ dissatisfied with the ones I took. Lots of Glarey Glare when I was there on Tuesday. Sorry I missed you!

Those shots are great, thanks. The custom Rev is mine (with me flying) ... and I have to say, it looks SWEEEEEET :P
I'm not sure who shot them, but I'd love copies...if possible. Thanks again.



BTW, did anyone get shots of the Megafly on Thursday. I had such a blast flying team.


Mike (iQuad Mike B) ), you're a great guy, truly. Thanks for everything!!!

I note that mine is not called a masterpiece because it is far from it!

I will also attest to Laura knocking of Brad's hat, I witnessed it, it looked like she meant to do it! A perfect move!

If I could afford one of his kites or mow his lawn or........, I'd be a buyer instantaneously! Since the first day I saw them I've been trying to figure out how to get my hands on one. They are awesome looking and I'm saying that just having seen them in pictures.

They need more wind than a non vented of course but they fly very nicely! The pull feels like it is distributed across the kite and they are a true joy to fly.

Since the first day I saw them I've been trying to figure out how to get my hands on one. ****They are beautiful, however, you do need decent wind to appreciate them. This weave actually has smaller holes/venting than his original designs which, overall, equals slightly more than a mid vent's venting.... very cool!****

Thanks, Carolyn...
I'm uploading the photos to the gallery, now... there's more than I thought, so it's taking longer than expected.
The videos... OMG, they take so f-ing long to load to You Tube. I was going to list them all at once, but I'll do a couple at a time; as they're uploaded.
(John's Bugs Routine)
(Paul LeMaster's Routine) ...is that how you spell your last name, Paul :confused!: ?


.... many more videos to follow....



Alden did a nice job on his weave....It might not be an "Eliot Masterpiece", but an "Alden Weave" is quite sweet, too. Way to go, Alden.
Alden, you should come up with your own logo, just to have fun with it!
