Cool, I get to fly with Denny again!

Does anyone know what that's a nickname for?????

Jynx, looking forward to meeting you also!

Sherri, maybe your Scarlette Scarlette can get some flight time with my Blue Scarlette this year huh?

John, where's 36 from? I thought it was 29 at TI and 33 at WW?

Mega fly... YEAH. <grin>

Will be a great place for me to try calling the grid, given decent wind. ;)

We had THIRTY SIX fliers in the mega fly last year (still the North American record), think we can beat that?

Dreaming big, the world record is still 54.


Go for it! I was asked by PM to attach the 36 team sketch!

You shouldn't sell yourself short here Jnyx.
It will seriously give you the chills as soon as you make your first figure eight in line with others.
You'll be giddy with joy!

Jynx,
After John's Friday program you will be ready for duel, solo, team and a mega fly. Last year I truly enjoyed meeting the forum members that were there. What would have been a beach full of strangers (kite nuts) turned into old home weekend. I look forward to meeting you. I was so surprised how may showed up from all over the country!
Alden,
We did have a great time Sunday! I hope you and Sherri get to fly the Scarlettes. Last year Sherri was busy when you and Monk flew them. Are you telling everyone my middle name?
Hint: Alden /Denny.
I always look forward to flying with my TI friends. Add the forum revers form all over and it looks like a great festival.

Aaaaahhhhhh,
memories....isn't that what it's all about? Jynx, don't sweat it at all. Everybody started at the same place and has gone through those anxious moments and gotten better because of it. Nobody sweats the small stuff. It's just a kite!!! I'm only at this 7 months; it's ALL good... no worries... but, if you're running out for coffee or something, don't get the order mixed up!!!!!! no, you know I'm joking...that's all we do is laugh. Rich had me peeing in my pants (almost) his laugh is infectious! It is going to be fun!!!!!!! :lol:

My 74 year old father flew in a team fly and had little experience. He stood next to JB and did great! Remember there is always someone next to you that will help,

I remember Mike Kory saying something to the effect

the first time you crash and bring others down with you everyone laughs and relaunch, the second time everyone laughs again and then you go down the beach and practice some more
