Thank you to everyone who took and posted pictures. I love reliving the weekend. I have actually printed some of them for framing. My only regret for the whole weekend is not making the mega fly. I was involved until the last second with the kite making class and even with the help setting up, I was too late to make it. The good part is when I saw my granddaughter's eyes light up seeing the monster kite "I made" in the class. Thanks Sherry and Steve for making it happen and thank you to everyone who came down and made it so special. As Ben says. What a great family.

Thanks for sharing Laura :)

Is that Sherri's mini-weave-kite ? B)



Which one? The one with the blimp? That's Elliot Shook's Masterpiece. I hope that's the one you're referring to.

Hey Laura,
I think the funsized mesh kite is on the pole behind the ever so chilled out relaxing Kathy on the beach :)

Great pics Mel! The 4 revs at sunset is real nice!!!!
And, great vid of Laurel flying indoors. Particularly liked the personal message to Al at the end. He's a good man!

We thought of you today while at Liberty. We kept looking to see when you would arrive. Guess you were busy posting pics and vid instead.

Say hey to Scott and tell Laurel to "keep it up"!!!!!!

Laura,
In the pic of Elliots weave, Elliot is flying it. There are four kites in formation in the background following across inverted. You are flying one of those four. JB, Paul, and Rich are flying the others.

Thanks.
Now I see what you're saying. I thought you were referring to the folks on the right. They're flying too, which is what threw me off. You can't see the four of us, only our kites.... and they look really good, I might add. :P
