I missed your question from 2 months ago


Sorry buddy. I missed your posting and question.

IBX is the last week in March. It is self supported by the best people you will meet. There is a big tent, portapotties and infinite places to camp.

People tend to congregate in groups.

The key to IBX is that you connect with a group that can watch over you. With no friction, if your kite goes down and you need to pause, it is very helpful to have a helper to hold your kite while you get your bearings. Also, as you gather your bearings your new friends will keep an eye on you and come to rescue you when needed.

When a person offers to help, always say "yes".

A premier event for sure! I hope you are able to make it. Typically I am there Saturday to Saturday.

Dinner on Thursday along with a raffle and auction.

Yup. Still collecting Covid dust in my garage with your name on it. I ams somewhat hopeful that the borders will be open for fall SOBB, but I'm not holding my breath. We are all supposed to be vaccinated up here by September. Thanksgiving at Alvord?
Is it irrational that I am contemplating risking death from a global pandemic just to get some buggy seat time?
