Join us for two full days of hard core TEAM quad instruction with Team KiteLife members John Barresi and Brett Marchel at the Munson Soccer Fields near Detroit MI on September 24-25, 2016. Location - https://goo.gl/maps/iszmxLfeQzT2 NOTE: This event has been reformatted - intermediate fliers or better only, focus will be on team flying and certain skills are required including basic hovers, figure 8 flight and fundamental speed control. Saturday morning we'll have a rountable about team philosophy and dynamics, this covers a metric ton of stuff that even the "pros" think they know, but don't... Then we'll break up into two teams (led by Brett and John), rotating students between the two groups to work on team maneuvers and basic skill improvements, then we'll do a mega fly to close out the day, wind allowing. Sunday will be more of the same, turned up few notches. Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win. Students will use their own kites, 120' length is REQUIRED for all team exercises. Must be Skybond or spectra lines for team flying.

Had a great day of flying today! Well, I didn't actually spend all of the day flying... Eight of us got together for what I hope will become the first of many local Portland indoor workshops. It was a laid back 4-hour skill and fun exchange with Amy and Connor Doran, Brett and Bri Howard, Wayne Dowler, Eric Allen, Spence "Watty" Watson and myself. For the past few years, Bud and Linda Hayes ran a Camas (WA) indoor competition in November, but sadly the event has been canceled. With that especially, and the fact we have quite a few indoor fliers in the Portland area, I wanted to see if we could get a few folks together, perhaps even on a semi-regular basis... We all picked up a lot of information and new skills from one another, even though the space was a bit small (barely enough room for 3-4 intermediate fliers at any one time). . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . We had mostly Indoor Revs, with one dual line (Wren) and a few kinds of glider (Zen, Skate, iFlite) kites as well... Eric even pulled out some rollerblades and did some Rev flying while rolling around the room, pretty cool, makes me think of the ice skaters we've seen on YouTube as late. After a lot of practice, play and skills work, we spent the last 30 minutes or so taking turns with a mystery kite ballet routine, just for a bit of mutual entertainment. Fun - this gathering wasn't an event or competition, and the demos were more like solo play time with a music background, especially after sharing the floor all day. Thanks guys, I'd definitely like to put something like this together periodically, and eventually move it into a larger venue where we can really spread our wings.
