    I have almost entirely stopped practicing in reality... lol My sessions are high intensity but not even bi-weekly on average, most of my flight time is simulated in my head... Right down to the mistakes, my holodeck is amazingly detailed after 27 years.
  5. We're pleased to yet again announce the next prize being given away to our most appreciated supporters, the Kitelife Subscribers... For roughly 10 cents per day they play a major role in keeping KL growing in every way. Three brand new digitally printed performance (quick dry) shirts in Large size (almost XL fit) each with the following graphics: Kite Forge (small breast logo, large back logo) Team KiteLife (small breast logo, large back logo) JB / KiteLife (small JB breast logo, large KiteLife logo and more on back) Total prize value around $80, I do apologize for not having sizes available to choose from, these are left over from an earlier order as these are what I wear when I'm out "working" in the field(s). == Remember, you must have an active KiteLife subscription to be entered, but you can sign up here! Odds of winning for this prize is currently 1/358, and will be drawn on Mar 7th, 2018! Our thanks, and the very best to you... Let the drooling begin!

    Adam and @Dave Schutsky are interested, still waiting on feedback from others about a 4pm start.
  8. Corolla Quad Clinic (Apr 7-8, 2018)

    Hmmmm, maybe worth it! Lemme poll the group.
  9. Corolla Quad Clinic (Apr 7-8, 2018)

    Is that 4pm start (to 6pm), or finish by 4pm? @Doug Coates is interested too.

    I’ll post something in the FB group about it. 👍🏻
  13. Corolla Quad Clinic (Apr 7-8, 2018)

    Assuming we can beat the 24 hr window - I’d happily go in on that with folks, preferably two courts for two hours, but one is doable. 🤘
