All I can say is WOW! This was was my first BIG festival and I can't wait until next year.
It's a very cool thing to meet a few of the forum members in person. Jeepster, DB Cooper, Jynx (& sons) it was a pleasure. A couple of kite smacks but no hard feelings. I have a bunch of pictures, some from each day and the indoor fly. I did not get any shots of the night fly. I was having too much fun flying my B-vented with an LED on each endcap and a red light-stick hanging from the center bridle connection.
Here's a few pics ....

David ~ Great (or should I say... WINDerful) photos!

Added them to my personal album for added memories of an awesome weekend!

... "When I grow up, I want to fly like them..."

David


Grow up? ... Never, I'm still not finished with my first childhood.

Fly like them? ... Yep! The more I practice and learn, the more I realize how awesome their skill sets are.

Thanks for the great pictures ... I always bring a camera, but get so involved in the flying that taking pictures keeps getting forgotten.

Thanks again,
Tom

Wish I had more video to offer... most of my stuff was stills! (Next time!)

Thanks again
to the four of you, iQuad-ers, (and you too Ben) for encouraging my sons to continue flying... and to you, and all the fliers, for presenting such exciting performances! What an awesome event!
