Dave

YES!!!

Having Kite Party 11 show up on the cover of the AKA mag must have been the final push ... yes?  BTW, does that mean that Mike McD is now a cover girl boy?  Hope his rates don't go up 'cuz of it.

Cheers and thanks,
Tom

Just curious, what is the reasoning for a cap of 100 flyers?

The RSVP list is from KP11. I don't think the website has been updated yet.

We registered yesterday. Yes, it did say full, but figured that was old news. We plan, as before, to start flying at HB the Wednesday before KP and at least until the Monday after.

Nice that KP 2014 is happening. Always enjoy seeing everyone. The flying is fun too.

Cheers, Jim and Lynn

See you all there!!

David,

You could show up on a last minute whim and I'd rip the I.D. lanyard off my neck, and and scribble out my name with crayon and write yours in gladly. ;)  You are always a welcome treat. Glad you're coming.

Very simple....limited space. Now, If we can get 20 or 30 guys to lift the condominium complex and move it a few hundred yards north, then we can increase the limit. And really, I was never very good in math, so if it happens to be a bit over 100, I probably won't notice. This event is for YOU people, so if it gets too crowded on the flying field, you're gonna self police it anyway...right?!!

I'm on the list twice. This means I get to fly with longer lines, right?

I've flown quad some at KP the last five years, but I generally have to switch back to dual when Kurt's whimpering gets too embarrassing.  :D

This very evening I tied off and meticulously hand wound 500 ft of 200# Dacron line onto a hoop spool.  It's part of KAP Rig v2.

 Goal #1:  hang rig from my own soft lifter.

 Goal #2:  set the GoPro to one frame every 10 seconds, not 10 frames in 1 second like last year.  ??? :'(
