Cleaning out the garage comes to mind. And don't forget painting the house interior.

That way he'll teach you with a vengeance.

Have fun.

I just occurred to me that we should ask TK what other skills he has that we should leverage- is he good at weeding? That info might totally change the ticket buying next round. :)

Nah, then I would be expected to work too...let go fly a kite.

      Join us for two very full days of quad instruction on the beautiful shores of St Annes Beach in Lytham St Annes U.K. on Aug 30-31, 2018 immediately before the St Annes International Kite Festival!
      Instructors will be John Barresi (www.johnbarresi.com) and Josh Mitcheson.


      DAY ONE - AUG 30
      Quad 101: We'll be covering everything from absolute basics (pure beginner) all the way up through advanced techniques as well as the "weird stuff" like dogstake, short line catch and throw or any other quad line flight styles that may be of interest to the students, this first day is primarily focused on a full range of individual skills.

      DAY TWO - AUG 31
      Team Flying: Actually easier than it looks, team flying is proven to help your skills along much quicker while having a ton of fun at the same time in a very forgiving social environment - after having done 100+ clinics, it's very very rare that fliers didn't find a fair measure of success on the line with others - come on, pave the way for participating in a mega fly at your next event.

      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Djinn, Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Polo, etc), designs like Fulcrum are also welcome - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - this clinic is not brand-centric, the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win at your own game.

      If you want to be able to try team flying, 40 metre / 120 ft lines (Spectra or Skybond material) are strongly suggested as the international team standard.

      Registration is $135 (approx £100) per person and includes full access to the clinic on both days (Thu 10a-4p / Fri 10a-3p)... Please note, there are ONLY 20 SPOTS available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.

If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Thursday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, lots of little details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience.

      There will also be an add on indoor clinic on Wednesday Aug 29 from 4:30p to 9:30p, registration is $30 (15 spaces available) and covers 5 HOURS of indoor access and instruction.

      If you want some homework, you might also check out the tutorials available on KiteLife at http://learnkites.com/ and Kite Forge at http://kiteforge.com/help, can’t be too prepared!

      Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Los Hermanos, 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.
      If you plan on trying out team flying, you'll need to also have a quality 120' set of lines in your bag.
      Registration is $175 per person ($150 for KiteLife Subscribers) and includes full access to the clinic on both days (10a-4p)... Please note, there are ONLY 12 SPOTS left available and we expect them to fill up very quickly.
      NOTE: We are unable to refund in the event of inclement weather, etc, but can provide full credit toward future KiteLife purchases.
      If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Saturday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, countless details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience.
      NOTE: We'll all meet at Flying Smiles Kites around 9am for a quick meet/greet, and to choose our flying site based on wind direction at the time.
      If you are unable to make it by 9am, you can text or call me directly via 503-890-0280 to find out where everyone will be.
      For anyone who needs equipment or parts while in town, you can get pretty much anything you need from the Cath and Eliot Shook at Flying Smiles Kites right there in Corolla, just a few minutes away from the field.
      Hope to see you there!

      Join us for two full days of quad mega fly activity and instruction with John Barresi (Team KiteLife) and Scott Weider (Rev Riders) in Long Beach WA including shoulder to shoulder team maneuvers, overall team awareness and technique relevant to mega flies as well as 4x4 GRID FLYING if we’re able to gather at least 16 pilots (including our two instructors), this is a chance to really hone your skills for mega flies at upcoming events such as WSIKF.   There are 23 spaces available, allowing for as many as 25 total pilots including the two instructors to make a grid of 5x5!   We start at 10am on Saturday morning with general roundtable discussion and orientation about participating in and managing quad mega flies, moving very quickly into what should be nearly non-stop mega flying for two straight days (end at 4pm each day) and of course, there will be remedial assistance for pilots who need it.   NOTE: There will be opportunities to not only be part of these team exercises, but also to actually LEAD (with help and support) if you'd like to expand your skills even further.   Registration fee is $125 per person ($100 for KiteLife Subscribers) and includes TWO FULL DAYS.   Sign up link - http://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/79-quad-mega-fly-workshop-mar-24-25-2018/   RSVP'd:   Russ W Dominic W Jennilyn W @rykerev (Rick) @skline (Steve) @Gordon Sievers @handymanrae (Rae) Richard H Phyllis G ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
