So, if you're planning on coming to meet BigBear and I tomorrow let me know.

I'm gonna stuff the freezer full of burgers and the fridge full of beers but don't want to overstuff in case BB and I decide it's time for a binge and a bender :lol:

Anytime. As early as 10am till who knows when. BB sent me a text this morning but I've yet to hear back. I suspect 10am might be easier for me than him - he's the one at the wedding party tonight :lol:

checked windfinder...cloudy and warm all day and pretty steady 19 kp/h wind all day.

I have the green light for a road trip. It is pouring rain down here. 60th bd yesterday! If there is 7kph and no rain it will be sweet riding coyotes and the XXXL

MB, Is it best to just call you when I get to Leduc? I won't be there until 11 or so.

I'll have my cell with me. I'll U2U you details.

Really good to see so many people flying together today- glad we were able to get together. I'd say it's a safe bet that well over a thousand people got a chance to watch us today and learn a bit about the sport. Now if only I could have done something about the zero or hero winds. Once again Canuck rocks the joint and likely logs the most miles AND fewest complaints :lol:

Sadly the GoPro wasn't running so we'll never know how high I was lofted.....got some good stuff from under the Brooza and the neighbor that was out snapping pics will probably burn a pile of nice ones for us - I'll send them out.

Hope everyone made it home safe and sound. Till next time.....

It was great to see all of you again and meet BigBear. You have a great spot there and it was great to have 26C sunshine with no bugs (rained all day in Calgary). Other than the 10ish yr old boy riding his bike all over the place under our kites :karate: Edmontonians seemed to be pretty good about mixing with kiters.

a BIG thanks to Kathy and Kelly for burgers and beer. I was a little more sore and stiff after the 3 hour drive home this time, but not hungry.

sounds like I missed out, were you kiting in Kellies field?

thanks again for burgers and 'refreshments'.
