I am absolutely sick right now...

I was repacking my travel bag tonight to fit a dedicated Fighting Rok and my new Eyes Rev and noticed my Mask Spirit Quad was gone...

I last had it in the bag the day before the night fly. If any one picked it up by accident please let me know,I will pay for shipping. It was in a yellow bag with a star on it.

my brother,
I will look in my bag and certainly I can feel your loss as well Joe.
Good luck on a quick recovery, at least it's easily recognizable!

PS: one of the tent-gang has certainly picked it up by mistake

I sure hope so! I dont know how it got out the bag unless it hitched a ride when I pulled out another kite...

I am going to send a message to the Quinns and then to the Mexican tent too.

Be sure to announce your loss on other kite forums. e.g. kitelife gwtw AKA
If someone found it they would surely be looking for the owner.
If there were some sticky fingers, the kite would be recognized if flown with other kite fliers.

Awesome! Thank you! I don't want to miss any opportunity for someone to help find it. My bag seems awfully light right now.

I'm still travelling so I just saw the posting. I loved that kite. This so awful.

I have posted a notice on Kitebuilder Forum. There are several members of the local Dieppe club who hang out there. They might hear of someone who turned in the kite.

Best of luck to you! One thing that's great about the kiting community is that we always look out for one another. I have a feeling it's ~bound~ to turn up soon! Keep heart.

has anyone got the email addresses of Jose Sainz and Scott Skinner?
They shared a tent with that kite and it might have been mistakenly picked up by one of 'em. It's worth a shot anyway!

Scott could be contacted through the Drachen Foundation.
Jose could be contacted through Ben.

Well, I'm offering up a $100 reward for the information that leads to the recovery of this kite! Can also put that towards a rev of your choice!
