    Karma: Spreading Kite Love (2/14/18)

    A $40 gift certificate is awaiting our winner at his choice of Old City Kites in Sacramento, CA. JB, I will be in touch about his 1 year subscription.

    No need for a drawing with only 1 entrant. Thank you, @Ca Ike for not leaving my drawing without anyone in. Send me a pm with your address and favorite kite shop and I'll get your gift certificate taken care of. Also let me know if you want the subscription for yourself or if you want to gift it and I'll get that straightened out with @John Barresi

    I've got my drawing up, I'm locking this one down. Much Love to all of my Karma Friends and many thanks to @Mike Klaiber for this great prize!
  4. Alright Karma friends, in order to celebrate Valentine's Day in KiteLife fashion, this drawing is going to spread some kite love. The lucky winner will get a $40 gift certificate from the kite shop of their choice (spreading the love to the folks that feed our need) and a 1 year subscription to KiteLife, either a renewal or a new subscription for the winner or gifted to a friend (gotta send some love to @John Barresi who makes all of this possible). PAY CLOSE ATTENTION, BECAUSE I'M THROWING IN AN ENTRY TWIST!!!! To enter post "I'm in" or some variant thereof PLUS tell me why you love kites. The RNG is going to choose the winner at some point on Valentine's day and I'll accept entries right up until the drawing. +++++++ Some rules and guidelines: Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins. Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States. RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks. Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma! This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it. When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it. The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it. Good luck, and have fun!

    SWEET! My sincerest apologies for the delay. For the second time, my phone decided to not remember my password. So when I would check in to KL, I was checking in not logged in, therefore not seeing notifications. Gotta get that figured out. I cannot wait to get this kite in the air. I'll have the new drawing up shortly. Barton

    New drawing posted. Locking this one down. Congratulation, Joanna ( @dragonfish )! Thank you, @kiteflyr for offering the excellent prize.
  8. I have an HQ Symphony 1.4 for the drawing. It is gently used, in great shape and comes with a belt pack, line and straps, a cool spinning tail that I made (see Go Make a Kite for vid of the tail.) I've also included a little mini-stake that I use to lay out the lines. Multi-colored. This is a fun kite, fast enough for good play but not so strong a pull that you can let your kids use it.  

    I don't exactly know how to post it or what number you used to choose a winner.

    I'd get in for some line laundry or a fighter kite. Heck any of the stuff you listed would be a great drawing.

    Riff, can you point me to the source image you're working from here?

    Do you have an example of a gritty, graffiti iconic logo to give us an example? All of the ones you showed are clean and precise

    Or, if like me you prefer it without the handles....
