Back home from the clinic, and I think it was a great success! Everyone seemed to walk away with a good deal of improvement.

Agreed... Between both the instructors and the students, this was probably the best clinic we've had to date!

We ran a little tighter schedule, focused more on the assigned skill areas and got way more people into team exercises than in years past.

Honestly, I think this was my favorite event of the year thus far, everyone was wonderful. :)

Also, we had a chance to give away from really cool stuff on Saturday night... 10 prize winners in all:

  • B2 standard w/lines (from Kitelife)
  • Prism molded hard case (from The Kite Shoppe)
  • 13" Pro handles (from LS Custom Kite Accessories)
  • 2 custom ground stakes (from John Mason)
  • 2 iQuad DVDs (from iQuad)
  • 2 yearly Kitelife subscriptions (from Kitelife)
  • 2010 WSIKF mega fly post card (from The Kite Shoppe)
Thanks to everyone who donated, to our instructors, and most of all - to our students!

Look for news on our 5th annual WCRC (2012), details to be announced later this year. ;)

I was so glad we didn't get rained out!! It's so hard to pick a date and hope for the best in March!

I made a page for the WSIKF mega fly greeting card if any one wants a close-up look:

The weather was about as good as one can hope for in March and the people were just fantastic! I had a lot of fun this time around!

I'm a little tardy in responding but I want to add my 2 cents. This was my first rev clinic, and I really regret that I didn't attend any of the previous ones. Flying for 2 1/2 days with this group of people was a real privilege. Getting some one-on-one time with the instructors and flying in small teams were the highlights for me. And, as I have found with every group of kitefliers that I have experienced, everyone wanted to have fun, learn and be supportive of our fellow fliers. We are really lucky to have such a great group of advance rev pilots here in the NW to provide the leadership for events like this.

And if that all sounds a little formal, the biggest reward was that I had an amazing amount of fun the whole time. Thanks to everybody who participated!
