Revolution was represented :blue-cool:




Wind was super light most of the weekend with constant direction changes on the first day. I worked my :censored: off to make sure there was something in the air to entertain the crowds. Aside from the fact that I enjoy that, I think it also showed off the Revolution capabilities given that there were many times there was little to nothing else that could fly. Someone even told me I had "mad skills" ... so I think I did okay.

I flew the Polo and Pro standards, my B2 stack and a short period of Polo mid vent to deal with some big fluctuations in wind. Most of the time I was on 35' line for my solo work, the stack was flown on 50' lines.

All the Facebook pics are up now

Here's one of my favourites...
After playing with her for a little while I flew the kite in close, dropped into a tip stand on the field side of the fence and then slowly tipped the rev in towards her. When I got real close, the little critter proceeds to lean forward with lips puckered and she kissed the leading edge .... *melts*

Bless her little socks, but that has got to be one of my favourite moments interacting with people.
