My daughter and I will be coming down Friday. I'm not sure at this point if it will be earlier in the day or late in the evening.

I will be there in spirit, but sadly, not in the flesh! Too close to IBX for me and that is pretty locked down in my calendar of life at this point. Your Fall event perhaps? Stuff dreams are made of! Have a wonderful time.

I hope it's smooth like a parking lot and not packed with cars like a parking lot.

Thanks for the tide chart Morrie!
Really low tides, but looks like we'll have to get up early.
I'm trying to be there for Saturday evening, but don't count on me for psketti, I don't eat like a regular human anymore anyway.

I throw out an option of selling or trading done of my early and less frequently used kites. I have a collection of mainly 5M's. If anyone is interested that is going to be at SOBB, let me know. Not looking to ship.

Radsails Aztec backpack with speakers (and a 5M kite) (only flown a couple of handful of times)
Pansh sprint 5M K.O.
Quad Trac 5M (flies "slightly pregnant") K.O.
Quad Trac 7M, K.O.

Not looking for much. They just need a new home.

Cannot wait for next weekend.

I heard that blitzhound will not be able to attend. He will be missed. I think his company should give him some time offs and fly him over from where he is to attend.
Maybe if he explains how important SOBB is...

I will be firing up my smoker and cooking some smoked, pulled pork to bring.

See you all there.
