In preparation for the Lincoln City Summer Festival titled "Quadzilla" this year, I'll be doing another Rev Clinic in conjunction with Northwest Winds kite store at "D River" in Lincoln City, OR to be held this year on May 8th and 9th.

It's important to note, this is not a full blown iQuad clinic as only two members (Takako and I) will be in attendance and we'll be focusing more on personal coaching (hence the lowered registration fees), the goal will be on assisting each individual with gaining or improving the skills they are personally most interested in... Any level of experience welcome, whether you've never pulled your kite out of the bag before or if you're an old pro just polishing up. ;)

We'll still still ask registrants to identify themselves as NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED (based on a specified set of Rev skills) so that we can effectively offer techniques and suggestions... Schedule will be less structured than what we had in Long Beach last weekend, primarily due to the lack of additional instructors on hand.

- 10am start on both Sat/Sun
- Casual dinner gathering Sat night
- Team exercises for those interested

If you are a RevGuild member, please look for discounted Clinic registration links in our club forum...

$15 off individual registration, $25 off couple and parent/child fees...

RevGuild membership is $35 per year, so just 2 or 3 clinics will more than cover the average Clinic registration fee.

OK, John. I'm in for the clinic. It's on my calendar & I sent $$ via Revguild.

I am going to build me a new set of lines from the bulk spool of LPG I recently got from Theresa. I had a lot of friction on my lines at the Long Beach clinic. After about 5 wraps I could barely move the lines against each other. Maybe that helped create the over correction I was doing after making sharp turns during the follow in team flying.

I noticed the LPG seems to have a slick coating on the outside. My current Spectra lines never had that kind of coating.

Hope that helps keep me from going bonkers & taking down other kites. Posted Image

See you two soon.
Have fun, Ray.

Aye, LaserPro Gold is the only way to fly IMHO, especially for team. :)

Glad to hear you're coming, we'll ramp up your team skills, no problem!

Finally! Lincoln City, sunshine & wind. Morning winds were a little low but with a few pumps & backing up we pulled it off. After lunch the winds were a bit better but around 3pm the winds picked up to 5-7 mph. Nice for team flying so we stayed until 5pm +.

A few pix in the AM but none later as I'm busy flying.

100508 LC JB & Ann here\'s how 1024.jpg

JB shows Ann some techniques.

100508 LC Ann flies 1024.jpg

Ahh, that's it.

100508 LC TK & Kevin 1024.jpg

Kevin flies with TK giving tips.

Tomorrow should be better winds & cloudy. More team flying from 2-4 PM.

What a great day at the beach. The fish & chips at McMenamins was great with a glass of brew pub beer.
Have fun, Ray.

Thanks to everyone who attended and a special thanks to Ray for the photos. John and TK did a great job offering lots of personal attention.

We sent each of the store staff over for a turn on the beach and I even spent a few minutes with a set of handles myself!

Northwest Winds is now the best-stocked Revolution source in Oregon. In you are in the area, stop by and see us before the QuadZilla Mega Fly at the Summer Kite Festival the weekend of June 26.

Thanks again all for a fine Clinic!

David

Thanks for having us David, it was a real blast! :)

There were just four registered students over the weekend with Kevin & Ann, Ray and James, but holy smokes did we have a good time!!

And wow, everyone ramped their skills up really nicely over the weekend with a good deal of 4-person team flying and a little bit with 5... Now Kevin had never flown team before and jumped right in, couldn't wipe the smile off his face by Saturday afternoon... By Sunday afternoon, James couldn't resist any longer and *had* to join in... So much fun, TK and I really enjoyed working with y'all, hanging out and enjoying the beautiful weather with really good folks... Thanks so much for being a part of it. :)

I'd also like to tip my hat to Cindy over at Northwest Winds who came out for a quick introduction on the Rev... Her first time flying and she did really great, again with the fire behind the eyes ("ohhhhh yeah") and a plastered on grin... I wonder if she'll be sneaking out with one of the new Gomberg masterpieces sometime soon when nobody is looking. :kid_content:

BTW David, what is the price tag on those, and how many do you have left?

A total of nine have been produced. There are three left. Not sure if we will make more.

They are priced in the store at $350 (with race rods / no handles). But we can offer them to Forum readers for $300 (plus shipping) on our secure server at http://www.gombergki...com/order.html.

Thanks!!

David
