Issue 44: REVisions: Beyond the Basics

For more summers than not over the last 8 years, my life at WSIKF (link) has been spent doing two things. Having a lot of fun, and helping teach people how to fly Revolutions (which is also a lot of fun). On any given day, I’ll run across all levels of flyers, from people who […]
