  1. That's really kind of you guys! It can be a bit parched out there without any cover, I'm sure folks would help out in order to partake of some nearby shade.
  2. There have been massive amounts of Rev (Quad)clinics and mega flies for the past 10 years, whereas dual line has been kind of stagnant with relatively little available on the "professional" or educational end of things... The apparent focus on Revs is a byproduct of that, and how darned easy quad is to learn. I love both dual and quad equally, but that's the lay of the land right now.

  5. I actually picked Cardin up by his armpits for a second just to gauge what he's working with... lol Yeah, I couldn't leave him high and dry.
  6. Awesome video @P.V. Nguyen!
  7. Hi folks, this event has been canceled due to lack of registration and I'll be doing a private "squad clinic" instead (already booked up) - thanks for your patience!

  10. SNIFF I love all you guys.
  11. Red PRO leaders and personalized signature per Roger's request... Of course all that ink will make it lean to the right during flight, but I'm happy to serve. lol
  12. Sorry Barton, it just hit a point where I felt the ticket proceeds / chances / prize value would have become less than fair... The fast and massive participation from everyone surprised me.
  13. And the winner is... This drawing was held by John Barresi in a fair and unbiased manner, using RANDOM.ORG's Third-Party Draw Service. For details, please see the <a data-cke-saved-href="https://www.random.org/draws/details/?draw=41053" href="https://www.random.org/draws/details/?draw=41053">drawing's record</a>. Ticket number 36, this bad boy is going home with @SS Kites (Roger Kenkel)! Deepest appreciation to everyone who participated, can't thank you enough for your support. Stay tuned for another raffle before too long, planning to make the prize even more special.

  15. All right folks, I'm calling it - 225 tickets sold, great response so I'm going to go ahead and make the drawing today. I always audit the list before doing a drawing and found an error in spreadsheet sequencing that duplicated tickets 36-43 (and omitted 43-50), this has been fixed and the one affected person has been notified. Results coming shortly!
