What a great event! Saturday started off with huge attendance but not enough wind to blow out a match until around 1 o'clock a lot of the crowd came back after the Nebraska football game. Monday, was phenominal huge attendance all day. Families coming and going. We held a dual line and quad line clinic for free and the interest was also awesome. We put so many dual line and a few quad line kites into the hands of so many newbies , young and old. It was a blessed day. Thanks to all who was able to make it.

      Hi all,
      This karma drawing is for a Premier Widow NG in excellent overall condition with the exception of a broken bridle (left side only - right is still intact for copying) and a very small hole in the leading edge material (no danger of expanding). 
      Normally sold for about $200, this was one of the kites I used while training my teammates on Team KiteLife, a quick bridle replacement / repair (like $1-$2 worth of bridle line) and you’ve got yourself a champ!

      Remember, the winner pays it forward with something from their own bag or shopping list (take a look at our past drawings for examples) - reply here with “I’m in” to enter!
      IN so far:
      @Breezin @jeepinjeepin @LookuPLars @Mike Klaiber @Sonex128 @T in WI @Deke Haid @Cosa Drawing on July 10th!
      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.

      This 20th Nordic Kite Meeting in Blokhus Denmark was my first.
      There were four full days of kiting in a kiting environment not leaving the beach during day time, yet the time was too short - given the favorable circumstances of the meeting there were so much more to test, do and learn. For other flavors of kiting than DLKing and QLKing there was the Blokhus-Lökken wind festival going on around us.
      Being surrounded by helpful and knowledgeable kite people all times of the day (and evenings as well) you just can't help picking up knowledge. If you wanted a kite discussion someone at hand most likely had good insight in the matter. I hope that I didn't kite talk you to death, but due to a lack of local DLK/QLK pilots where I live, I had so many years of kite talking bottled up. The time I, hrm..., had a sudden need for a LE-repair, tools and spares offers "just appeared".
      When returning home late in the evening my still awake oldest daughter asked about the trip and after a while asked the question "How fun was it?". The best answer I could give was that it was like being a child again and going to a perfect top notch wild camp or a language course in a foreign country.
      Many BIG thanks for this greatest kite opportunity that I have had so far! I already look forward to a future event where one could continue to do even more of OPK testing, team flying, actually seeing kites that you just have read about before, technique refinement and even more actively sharing/learning tricks/techniques.
