Hi all,
I wanted to say thank you to everyone. First off to Mike and Cathy Moseman for their hospitality during the NASM Indoor Festival. We truly appreciate your opening your home to us.

Lisa Willoughby will be touring us around the East Coast for the week until she heads out to Lincoln City ( ok this seems odd huh lol) while we head back into DC. Thanks Lisa for having us, we can't wait!

We just received some very cool news from the White House.. We will be touring the White House on Wednesday March 23rd ! Ben, Lisa, Connor,Ian,Brielle and myself all cleared security status! Sad that Ben will not be coming into DC till Thursday however, and we don't have a choice of when we go, but we will be hanging with Ben the rest of the weekend for the National Walk for Epilepsy, and the Smithsonian Cherry Blossum Kite Festival!

Connor has raised $1664. for the National Epilepsy Foundation and is working hard to hit $2000. before we leave. You will hear more from him on that one. Thanks to those of you that have already helped make this happen!

I would also like to announce (per the good folks at Revolution Kites) that there will be a very special announcement made that week. Stay tuned on that one. That's my story and I am sticking to it.

Our goal is to share what kiting has done for us, with many others, and to raise awareness for Epilepsy. Epilepsy is an invisible condition, until a seizure hits. Many have wondered why Connor gets so wiped out and falls asleep anywhere.. or sometimes seems *out of it*. It is something he deals with everyday, even when he is seizure free because of the meds he takes. For those who have been so supportive of him, taught him to fly , given him a good word when things have been rough. thank you.
Sincerely,
Amy Doran

Hmm, if you are staying with Mike and Cathy maybe we can all go to Dinner one evening. Mike doesn't live too far from me.

If not I am planning on being at the Smithsonian and at the Blossom festival.

We all had a grand time at the tribute to Margo Brown (Nat'l Air & Space Museum's indoor kite fly) on the 19th of March.

Here's a couple of highlights from my office's staff photographer Daniel Sone. He & Andrew Albosta (WOW's extraordinary photographer and master class flier) worked their tail-feathers off capturing literally thousands of photo opportunities. I guess my bride will write-up an article for Phil Broder (Kiting Magazine) on the event.

Ben -- still don't know if I'll make it down to the Mall on Sunday (partially depends on catching a ride with someone!), but I'm hoping to see y'all...
