Corolla Quad Clinic (Apr 7-8, 2018) **SOLD OUT**

Recommended Posts

I received the number to call from Lynn and I spoke to them. Here's what I found out. The indoor courts are $40 an hour per court. They can be used from 8 am to 6 pm. Reservations are only accepted 24 hours in advance, no more than that. We're responsible to clean up and court prep afterwards

Assuming we can beat the 24 hr window - I’d happily go in on that with folks, preferably two courts for two hours, but one is doable. 🤘

I'm definitely in for some indoor flying and will help with the cost of the rental.   We'd have to see if the other participants in the quad clinic would want to do that during the weekend.

JB, the latest we could do a 2 hour session on Saturday would be 4 pm.  At least at the indoor tennis courts.

Is that 4pm start (to 6pm), or finish by 4pm?
[mention=11356]Doug Coates[/mention] is interested too.
Start at 4 pm. They, close the courts at 6 pm

I can tell all the indoor flying I've been doing is helping my outdoor skills.   Yesterday I was flying dual on 80' lines and was able to do a 540.   Something I've never accomplished before.   Indoor is helping me get a better feel for line control and gives a pretty decent workout

One spot left - I grabbed one just now.  Hey all - long time no see.    I have a nice "high wind quad day" muscle burn and raccoon eyes from a good day at the Washington monument yesterday - had to polish my skills back up a bit to get ready to play with y'all.  

To chime in on recent comments - I too am interested in a bit of indoor time - but have no indoor kites.  Night fly - of course as long as I have any brain power.  

Happy to see the community thriving and excited.

Hi all. So I’ve finally learned how to navigate this app and communicate for myself here! Ha ha! Up to speed. Adam and I are in for all of it … Daytime, indoor, nighttime, yes yes yes. April, Adam has a pretty solid case of the raccoon eyes from Sunday too ... A good reminder to pack sunscreen for this trip!

      Aug 11-12 in Long Beach WA!
      Led by veteran pilots Scott Weider, Paul de Bakker and myself, this dual line kite workshop is for beginner though master levels, starting from the ins and outs of your equipment on up through fundamental flight techniques and trick flying - we'll also have a few Prism kites on hand for folks to try their hand at team and "ground play" flying without fear of damaging valuable equipment.
      Testimonials - http://tinyurl.com/nnzsmvd
      Anything with two strings is welcome including foils, stacks with tails and delta stunt kites - the purpose of this workshop is first and foremost to help you maximize the kites you have, and the way you like to fly... During the weekend, we'll cover a whole range of dual line topics that interrelate.
      Sign up here - https://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/92-stunt-kite-clinic-aug-11-12-2018/
      Registration is $125 per person ($100 for KiteLife Subscribers) and includes full access to two days of instruction from 10am-4pm on both Saturday and Sunday... We only have room for 16 students, please RSVP if you plan to participate.

      Yes indeed, "borrow JB for a Weekend" will be drawn on May 15th, 2018...


      YOURS TO WIN: All-day access for THREE FULL DAYS to pick my brain, learn and play, solo or team, dual or quad, indoor or outdoor, water flying, urban kiting, dogstake, competition skills, you name it, hang out, name anything (legal and platonic) that we can fit into three days and I'd genuinely love to participate with you.

      TERMS:
      I will quite literally be somebody's (or a group's) private instructor, kite bag boy, workshop presenter, team trainer or simple arm candy for all three days, the winner can share me around with other local fliers, your team, a club, or just keep the fun all to themselves. I will cover my own flight to meet with the winner at any major International airport in the Continental USA (using Star Alliance air miles) on a mutually agreed date (any season), but no sooner than 21 days after the drawing. Winner provides basic lodging (couch or floorspace is acceptable) and local transportation for duration of the agreed visit, as it relates to the airport (pick up / drop off), kite flying and sleeping arrangements. Entry into this drawing is $10 per ticket with no limit to the number you can buy, all ticket numbers will be issued to the buyer via email (no refunds). Drawing will be held on May 15th, 2018 using RANDOM.ORG's 3RD PARTY DRAW SERVICE.
        Main terms apply to mainland US entrants only (takes lots more air miles to go abroad), unless a non-contiguous US or International (or Hawaii, Guam, overseas, etc) participant is willing to cover the airfare under the same terms otherwise. NOTE: If you are near the US border in Canada or Mexico, we can also arrange for the major US airport nearest to you and do a pick-up / ride-across arrangement from there as long as those local arrangements are made by the winner. By purchasing tickets, you acknowledge full understanding of all the terms above.
      NOTE: Tickets can NOT be ordered via TapaTalk or the KiteLife App, please visit the link below using a web browser (mobile or desktop).
