Title: Now I am worried about going to festivals
Post by: johnfarl on May 20, 2014, 01:34 PM
My wife found this article on the internet.  It is a must read for all serious kiters.  As a member of the senior community I am glad I just signed up for martial arts training.

Check this out and make sure you read the comments.

Okay, I'm still laughing about the paper's tagline - "Reporting the truth whether we know it or not"  :D

That would be like watching a geriatric old time martial arts movie.  Hearing aids being thrown down and walkers picked up..  hahaha   :D  Time outs for naps   :D

Great writing  ( whether its the truth or not )

Picturing it is just funny.

I was there and thought the melee was just a mosh pit with folks jamming to the kite teams' music that was playing. Some in that crowd can really shake it! I had a dualie so the SLK flyers just ignored me and I walked right around the scene.  Never knew there was so much danger so close.  Yikes!   ???

Next year I'm going all Kevlar for sure (and taking more video) ...

I saw this coming!

I told the wife to grab the kids and get them to the car...
I grabbed Grandma and talked her down...
Glad we got out when we did!!!
