Cali and I emailed Bill and Susie to sign up for the Rev clinic. I hope we made the cut and got in.

Just to let everyone know I have reworked my camera rig. I have some more parts that should be here next week. I hope to get some pictures of the clinic and kit fest that I have not before.

We are looking forward to seeing all our friends and fine folks at the SPI kite fest.

Mike,Peggy, and Cali

Called Bill&Susie they did not get our e-mails. We are now on the rev clinic list, cool.

Got one part in today, will work on it next week to see if I can get it to work like I want. Waiting on 2 more parts. Only have one week to get all this camera stuff working. This is going to be fun. I need this to do this kite fest big time.
