  1. Aurora and I had a fantastic time. I second everything Mouse had to say. Great participants, instructors, students, weather, you name it - it was a super time for all. We learned a lot and made some strides in our flying. The best part is Aurora flies team way better than I do. I could not believe how well she did. This gave her a great feeling of accomplishment and boosted her confidence in flying a revs and team flying. I would like to thank everyone who let her in on the team flying. Hahaha, I would like to thank everyone who let me in on some team flying - sorry for all the wrecks a

    I am very happy for you. What a great turn of events. Arns
  7. Congrats on the new kite!!!
  8. I have been doing some reading about the Widowmaker by Skyburner. Anyone with any experience with this kite and able to compare it to the others? Also looking for a kite for lower to moderate winds. Arns
  9. I got a chance to fly the Sea Devil and Fearless at Whidbey Island. Lam Hoac was there and gave my daughter and I some quick lessons and turned us loose on the kites. THANKS LAM!! Both kites were very responsive. Flew well in the light winds. Tracked well and for the folks who could trick them they were amazing (both the kite and the flyer). Something I don't think a lot of us think about is the amount of pull the kite has while you are flying it, maybe it is just me . If the kite is a good strong puller it is difficult to control and yanks you around while you are trying to perform. T

    UGH, I a am sick but that has lifted my spirits.
  11. Congrats to you and your family. Girls rock. They love their dads like nobody else. Hugs and kisses the rest of your life, you can not beat that. DEC 10 at 1:00 p.m.
  12. I would also like to thank Lam Hoac for allowing us to fly his Sea Devil and Fearless. I love these kites. And Lam spent sometime with us giving us impromptu trick lessons as you can see in the photos. Triston we enjoyed your company also. We really enjoyed watching you fly both in and out doors. Rory and Arns
  13. We could not decide on the route for the trip home. We spoke to some of the guys at the Lions Club Hotdog stand and they gave us some advice. The Clinton Ferry runs every 30 mins but is a 45min drive but cuts off about an hour off of the drive. The Port Townsend ferry is the quickest for you to get home but it runs every 90 minutes. Or you can drive home over Deception Pass across the bridge. Your waits for the ferry will take a long time because the motorcycle riders will be going home from the Oyster Run (couple of thousand, if not more, cycle enthusiasts were also on the island). After mu
  14. 22-23 Sept 2007 What an awesome weekend. Great people, clear skys, cool weather, and nice winds (well on Saturday, Sunday the winds were light to none). 6:15 a.m. Starbucks in hand and off to Mukilteo to catch the ferry. 7:30 a.m. The roads were clear straight shot to the ferry. We arrived at 7:30 but missed that ferry had to catch the 8:00 ferry. What a beautiful crossing on the ferry, it lasted about 20 minutes but the sights were great. It was nice to strecth the legs. 9:15 a.m. Whidbey Island Kite Festival. We visited and said HI to a few friends and passed out hugs. 10:00 a.m. Revs in
