Ran out of time to finish post earlier. I was at the WAIKF and kite shot right up in the air. I was walking around to look at the kites and saw a guy just pull back on handles of a quad kite and it went right in the air.
He said, "See the guy in the black hat. He will give you lessons." went over he gave me lessons on his revolution kite it was fun. The guy in the black hat was Joe Hadzicki. I ended up covering most of level 1 of the Club 38 in 10-15 minutes of never flying.
I lived inland and ran with kites and never got them to fly as a kid. Being there and them going up to end of line was fun.
I will be at the Pierce County Festival Sunday and planning to attend the Seaside festival in October.
