Wow, after several weeks of the Pineapple Express pounding us with windstorms & rain, we got a beautiful break in the weather for our annual Snow Queens weekend. Great turn-out today- around a dozen Revs flying in the sunshine.

Here's a teaser video of what it was like. :)

Great.

Thought that was wet water when the clip first opened, how the heck are they doing that, hovering just above it while keepint he bottom angle just right to the water?

Then I see it is actually hard water, however it loks SUPER COOL, and was probably cold too.

Nice clip, thanks for posting it.

It was so much fun! There was a thin layer of ice on the pond.
The last kite was a custom Bazzer Pro, belonging to Brad from Whidbey Island. :blue-cool:

ah yes ... it was a fantastic weekend :) :P :lol: :) :) :) :)
flying at garry point with our mainland buds was soooo much fun
the ice is on a shallow pond in the middle of the flying field ... beieve it or not the ocean is only a couple of hundred yards away
we also had some decent sized flocks of snow geese come through on saturday ... the revs must of scared them off cause only sea gulls on sunday
our heartfelt hanks to our wonderful friend cathy t for letting us all stay at her abode and for the incrediable food ... we love you :wub: :wub:
to everyone who made the effort to attend it was great to see and fly with you all .... snow queens 4 next year

*absolutely* a fantastic weekend! Great people, great sunshine and a frozen pond! I'd be hard pressed to think of any way it could have been better!

Lookin' Good, Terry! Great way to remember a perfect weekend. Was it cold? Didn't notice. I was having too much fun. Steve B and I put a cap on it with an early morning fly on Monday.

Thanks to everyone for my first Snow Queens weekend. Especially Cathy T, who not only let a flock of loons into her home, she fed us too! You're the best, Cathy!!! I can't wait until next year.
