Alright gang, I just booked a couple more tickets for Wildwood... It looks like iQuad WILL be there, but we'd still like to gather up a "B" team to fly with us at the event.

I can pretty safely say these guys will be involved:
  • John Barresi
  • Steve de Rooy
  • Todd Rudolph
  • David Hathaway
  • Ben D'Antonio
  • Mike Kory
  • Scott Weider (part-time, he's also Head Judge of the comps)
  • Anthony Lauriello
  • Jim Cosca
  • Kris Smith
Who else will be there and wants to be involved?

If you're interested, check out this page and make sure you've been practicing.

Think Ant might be up for it. In fact I would have thought his Antenna would have detected this post by now. It has been up for over an hour!!

Come on Ant where are you.

Now I think Ant might be a bit exited. Not sure why, just an impression I am getting.

Now Ant dont forget to breath a bit.

I was realy pleased to meet John, nowhere near good enough to fly iQuad myself.

Hope you get "up there" Ant.

Actually, you'll find that your skill will grow A LOT after a couple days of team flying.

The team thing is a very patient process, and we work to make everyone comfortable. ;)

Ok, I gotta go!

Antman, can you tell me if there are any campgrounds near Wildwood? The trailer type not the tent type.

I know of a couple in Avalon, which is not too far from Wildwood. The Ponderosa, and the Avalon camp ground. They are on route 9, we stayed at both already and they are nice. There are also more than the 2 that I mentioned. Any campground in the area will require a 3 day minimum stay, unless you call a week before and they have any vacancies. That is what we were going to do, but I contacted Beatrix, I found her e-mail on the AKA calander, under the WIKF, and we were able to book a room at the Oceanic for the 3 days, and it is right there. Hope this helps, and am looking forward to meeting some other kiters. I am so alone, as far as kites, in Mechanicsburg. Pa. :huh:

We got into a 1 bed room at the Super 8 for $109 per night, cheapest we could find.

109 is cheap. I put up 170 last year in OC.

We and 1 bed room, these two ideas should not be used in the same sentence--doesn't sound very cool for 4 iQuad members to share a 1 bed room. B)
