I had a dream the other night about JIBE. When I woke up it made me laugh, because it reminded me of last year when I was driving home from JIBE. After spending a week in the buggy and kiting up and past driftwood beach and on to the Northern tip of the island several times, I had developed some serious kite and buggy handling skills. When I was driving home from JIBE, every time I passed a tree that was close to the road, or went under a bridge, or saw power lines, I had to fight the urge to steer a kite under/over/around it while I was driving my truck! My head was still so full of kiting that I was feeling my hands want to pull a bar to swing a kite around to keep the lines tight when I had to make a downwind turn. It was so funny, but made me miss it before I even got all the way off the island.

I'm in for the "Masters" mini golf tournament! Sounds like great fun.

We're there, on vacation, and Jekyll has so much to do. Ever been to the water park? Looked for the old open air theater in the forest, visited the museum, rented a bicycle for a ride on the trails, road a horse or been fishing from the GREAT pier. All you need is there in the bait shop.

Part of the deal with J.I.A. is that because they allow us to have the event is that we are supposed to give a bump to the local island business's. I'm not sure what our economic impact is but we should support the locals.

I've always had a great time at every JIBE and can't wait for this years trip.

When are the low tides this year?

Are there any of our ladies interested in a "Kite Widow" t-shirt this year?

Last year we did a pink shirt for them.
Any color suggestions for a new color this year ladies?

This years design is almost done and looking awesome.

Any shirt color suggestions from you men?

Holly can't wait for a new tee, color doesn't seem to be a problem! I would think that lighter colors would be best. I'm surprised that she hasn't worn the two that she has into shreds. Put us down for at least two widow makers.
A small mountain is beginning to accumulate in the hall with all of the stuff we NEED to bring. We'll be there for two weeks as usual
again 4/30-5/14 got to get all the riding we can! Our local beach riding will be finished by the time we return to Maine.
I retired this month. Free at last!
We can't wait to see you all. Let the good times ROLL

davis - the tides jim posted are correct - it is best to use the st simon lighthouse since it is "parallel" with the Jekyll beach where as the marina is about an hr later
hope that helps
