Neat video ... thanks!

Had to watch Ben's part a couple of times. What do you think ... is it the music on his iPod or the wool underwear?

Cheers,
Tom

Carolyn and Laura,

Great job on the photos! Some really nice compositions there. I am especially glad to see that you caught the grid mega-fly. I am also hoping that someone caught the double ball from (I think) Monday. The huge collection of stills and video that Barb & I took will take me some time (I have to work for a living :angry: ). I started selecting the keepers in the still photos and hope to post them by the end of this weekend. The videos may take a little longer, sorry.

In the meantime, in keeping with the superhero theme of the Wildwood event, here are a few (off-topic) shots from the previous weekend:

I promise, my Wildwood pics & vids are coming...

Every time I see images of 'the grid' being flown I have to take a 'quiet moment'... <grins>

Great images!

Trouble is, we have to go for the '100' somehow. Dare I ask, who would be 'up for it'?

This is obviously not a short term project. Blackheath 2012 maybe? (If not Berck 2010)

Antman,

No, it is a telescope observatory belonging to a good friend who owns the cabin. We were staying there the previous weekend which is why I missed the Belmar Festival. Kite flying happens to be a good way to occupy the daylight hours when the galaxies hide. I guess I spend a lot of my recreational time looking up.

John,

IQuad was missed, but clearly there is a lot of talent in the ranks of the amateurs. And also a good sense of how to have fun.
