People have been asking now that iQuad is not traveling as a team what will happen well

"Family" heres what we are doing......ani_victory.gif

News, news, news!

 

As most of you know, iQuad has stepped off the circuit for a rest after many years of pleasing crowds the world over, and after putting up with me for more years than they want to admit. With that said, my personal email has been burning up with questions on who will “Revolution” work with now as far as events and what not. Well for me that was a no brainer—the team that we will be recommending is 180Go!

 

There are many reasons I say this. 180Go! is not so much a new team (2007) or the best in the world (yet), but what they do is what we here like to see, and that is sharing their love of kiting with others in the form of teaching others and sharing info and skills with no strings attached. Also Mike Kory has been a member of iQuad himself and has always been a huge supporter of “Revolution Kites.” 

 

 

What has always struck me with this group is the fact that they are both friends and family. What I also like is that the team’s ages are so well ranged—20s, 30s, 40s, 50s.  This lets them speak to just about anyone in the crowd. 

 

I’ve worked with this team in many places in the USA and Canada, so I have had the privilege to view the dynamics of this team, and the dynamics they bring to the table are amazing. So it’s with total trust and my knowledge of what helps an event work that I’d like to announce that team “180Go!” is “Revolution Kites” go-to team for events and outside shows.

I've worked with 180Go since there beginning and have always respected them as a team

and even more importantly as my friends now with iQuad resting I needed a work horse and

a group that gave me what I needed.....cat_lol.gif  So guys I know you thought you'd get all the glamor of being "The Revolution Team" what you really get is me cat_sick.gif , see along with all the 

flying you are now in charge of ME......... Just ask iQuad how that works gathering.gif , anyway

guys welcome to the inside and thanks now and always for all you do and have done glad 

to have you on the team....... Benani_smoke.gif ani_smoke.gif ani_smoke.gif

So very proud of my fellow IKE members, 180 Go! team leader Mike Kory gave me my first Rev lesson (only a year ago) and my first group fly was with 180 Go! members last month. What a great bunch of folks.

Thank you Ben and Revolution for this great opportunity!  I also want to thank John and the entire IQuad team and I hope we can represent Revolution Kites as well as John and IQuad have done.  I am very honored to have Ben joining us on our travels.
