Aye, a thermos of something hot, thick socks, pants and shoes... We're coming equipped, just glad we won't need R**N coats this year. :D

Some video here...

http://www.teamiquad.../2011-ice-kings

It's not really the Ice Kings (titled) event, we just lucked out with some ice this time around (instead of rain) and this is a tip 'o the hat to our Snow Queen mates in Canada. ;)

John and TK,

Thanks for the work on the videos. It was a great day. About the only complaint I have is that it would have been even better with a larger frozen puddle!

I agree Chuck, maybe we should leave a hose running on the field a day or two before the event next year? <evil grin>

The Ice Kings vid music is "To the Left to the Right" by Model T Ford. :)

TK's video music is a Spike Jonez piece, called "Winter".

It's all about the movement, the "rolling" sound that carries me through a visual scene and the movement of kites.

Plus, I think it should be exciting - takes energy to grab the attention of young punks. :)

If Spike Jonez doesn't cut it, you might try Spike Jones (and his City Slickers). Plenty of change of pace for elaborate routines. Posted Image

I mean it honestly...

What grabbed the attention of *hundreds* of baby boomers in the early 90s with sport kiting just doesn't have the same appeal to younger, media-driven generations.

I hear you on that front: too much "progress" for me!! Can't cure the common cold, but sure can invent a better cellphone!! (No offense to cell users meant in any way!!) What worked in the past, doesn't have the same impact today!!:huh:
