  1. Regarding the next drawing... The offering is fine, if that's what you have to share. The same terms and conditions suitable for you as we used in this drawing? Just let me know that, and if possible, include a pic and description of the Stowaway and I can start the new karma drawing post in your name.
  2. Kevin, I sent you a private message in the chat system about memberships... Can you see it?

Just sharing the link to our NEW and greatly improved chat system... http://kitelife.com/forum/member-chat/ Also, take a look at the news about our new "Direct Line" series of live chats with notable kite personalities from around the world - should be a lot of good info and conversation coming out of these! http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/7870-direct-line-realtime-chats-with-featured-kite-folks/ Direct Line chats will be in their own room, so folks can flip back and forth between general discussion and our featured guest and avoid too much mixed conversation.
