JB asked, I will respond

KP8 - March 12-14, 2010 location

I haven't updated the KiteParty site since last year because there has not been a lot of new info yet.

There is local lodging and attraction information that is still valid

Mike,

Did you get confirmation on the party starting on Friday? If so, then as Big Bri says ... only 74 more git-ups to go!!!

Cheers,
Tom

Tom, I swear I got those dates from Dave but I can not find them written anywhere. Maybe while we were sitting on the breakwall Monday after KP7.

So I will go with what Dave has put in print KP8 is the weekend of March 13, 2010

Though the dinner at Coaches on Friday is always great

Lynn and I plan to hit the beach starting on Wednesday the 10th, and fly through Tuesday the 16th. Hope to fly with some of you early arrivals and stay overs. We did the same thing last year and had a great time.

Sure does! Though about the same team-(un)skilled as I.
Milwaukee is still a solo city as far as team flying, unless there's a fest.
But, all I need is my Rev, my head-set, and a beach... I'm happy in my own world!

Jynx, We'll have you flying together before you know what happened. :confused!: It's time.

Trust me.

Jynx, I saw your sons fly at Grand Haven, they were doing great! :D

So if they're as 'unskilled' as you, as Jim says, it's time.

Come play EG! :kid_content:

If I had the right caller standing next to me... NO PROBLEM!

JB aka "The Right Caller" ~ TI 2008 remains my fondest mega team moment!

What a rush!

Thanks again John!

Personally, I'd rather stand next to Stephen or Mark myself... But that's just me. :)

You did so awesome at TI because the team literally just happened around you, no time to think.

You really do fly fine, and if having me yapping in your ear is what works to keep you cool, it'll be my pleasure EG, fa'shizzle. :)

John

I remember well the day you dragged me kicking and screaming onto the field at Berkeley for my first time flying with a group.

Sure changed my life, and Lynn's as well.

And we thank you for it. ;)

JYNX!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TI last year will be but a distant memory after you finish up this year.
My sense of it is that you'll be leading the line at some point so you can get a taste of that. A real confidence builder.
By the time you hit kite party, you'll be a seasoned pro!!!!!!
TI in 2 weeks BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Warning:

With some of the IKE crew attending...

They'll "have my back"!

I hope!

He certainly would,IF,he was going.

I havent given up on being able to enter the Lifeguards Marathon swim they had ther last year,but swimming over is the only way ile get ther atm.



Wee,shall see what happens.
I did check flights outa Manchester a few days ago.Cost was amazing.When flying Via Amsterdam from Manchester.Then into NYC.The cost had dropped quite alot.I would think due to the recent Bomb threats and stuff.Which is a consideration.
