I wish I could find the words to describe today. Around 11:00 I asked John what time are we going to do the Mega fly? He smiled and said 12:30. The word spread like wild fire. It was go time, Dennis and I set up our kites.It was such a rush seeing all the REV's lining up. My heart started pounding, I kept telling my self I can do this. We all lined up are kites and UP we went. I heard Scott announce we have broken the record 29 REV's. The crowd cheered and the tears poured out of my eyes. Today was a very special day for me. I want to thank every one that has taken the time to teach me. I wouldn't have been able to do it with out you. A very special thank you to iQuad. You guys are amazing. B)

It was so cool!

The sky was filled (and I mean filled) with Revs!

Everyone was looking left to right while we were on the ground and counting kites.

I hope someone has pictures!

Thank you Steve and Sherri!

Wow, what a HUGE thrill THAT was!

But, I have no idea what number I was. I do however know we have an accurate list of all involved.

To everyone involved with the weekend, a huge thank you, it was a fantastic time. We had a great fly up at Clearwater today as well!

A great big THANK YOU to iQuad! I feel really proud you welcomed and encouraged me to fly along side you all weekend. You know Saturday night when Kelly posted our mini mega Fog Fly photos, I was so pumped I couldn't imagine it could get better. Well to coin a phrase from her---- I exceeded my target heart rate in seconds after we started our wave and kite count off in the Mega Fly Sunday. Thanks Guys!

I won't forget I'm #13 of 29.

John I believe you were :cup_1st: in the Mega Fly :ani_notworthy:


Thank you, thank you, thank you.

So may great things happen over the weekend.... I'm looking forward to Jay's next artical in Kitelife.com.

One of the most the best memories for me was watching my Dad (74 years old) fly with iQuad. He practiced for months and was unsure of his skills but yesterday at Sand Key Park in blustering winds I picked up a kite and told my Dad to follow me and I put him in the line next to John. He flew for about 10 minutes. I'm sure my mother was looking down and smiling from heaven and my Dad talked about how cool it was all the way home in the car. :throb:

Events and successes like this one are thanks to the whole, the brave people who jump in and give it a try, bringing it to a higher level... I just happen to know where I'm going, no more, no less. ;)
