  1. Loved the intro, that Griffin stack flew great...
  2. Wife and I in Portland -Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for continuing education, hope to stop in LC on the way home Sunday
  3. I know of a few women fliers who haven't responded yet, and some have even made careers from the sport/hobby Donna Susan Ronda Theresa Sandy Penny Lisa Jeanette Lynn Carol Annie And I expect to meet more lady's (of kiting) at WSIKF later in the week
  4. Driving up Friday, staying through Sunday, hope to have a new stack tuned by then.
  5. Some pic's of my rev's stacked I attach pigtails at each connection point, then larks head the stack lines to the pigtails. That makes it easy to add/remove/switch the kites around
  6. I remember those days, lots of stacks, ballet flying, many dual line teams, and new kite manufactures just starting out I had been flying for 10 - 12 years by then, mostly Rainbow stacks, Hyper stack, Trilby's, and an Hawaiian (oh!, I still have them all)
  7. Ditto John, would be great to see you and TK
  8. That's a great walk thru Rob, I would only add one thing, especially with new lines. I switch my top and bottom lines from time to time, and also switch the handle end with the kite end. This will assist even stretch and even wear

  17. More info on National Kite Month available here With all the heated discussions about Ebay merchants, and misrepresentations on products made by "someone else" I thought we could use a positive subject. Yesterday, my wife, son, daughter in law, and granddaughter went to the park to take Easter pictures and fly kites. Though the wind was not available, I did capture some "moments" Have a great day and be sure to fly a kite during National Kite Month Makenna's website
  18. I could use a new pair of legs!! Thanks John/TK
  19. I like to keep both feet on the ground, thank you
  20. I use a couple of overhead racks in the garage similar to the picture I used to keep all my kite bags stacked together in a storage closet until a pack rat decided it wanted to chew through some on the bags. Luckily, the kite bags were repairable and the only kite damaged was a small bite from a Starflake, it did destroy a windsock and my motorcycle leathers. Now I keep large tubs with our Xmas stuff on the shelves, the kite bags (6) go long ways behind the tubs and my stacks lay across the top of the tubs
