Make a tag for Rob Cembalest of New Tech Kites, he just confirmed! He's from Austin, Texas. Please add him to Manufacturers. Also Jim Cosca from Skydog is coming too, don't know if he's added. Still waiting to hear from Jon Trennepohl but I think he's coming too, Skyburner Kites, Plymouth Michigan. Also Jay Knerr, CEO of Kite Loft, Ocean City Maryland. He's not Forum and flies everything, as does Rob.

Same here! About two + years ago I told my son I wanted to try doing "that" (as I pointed to the Chicago Fire team performing at our Milwaukee Kite Festival) a month later he gifted me an Aerie dual for my birthday... the rest is history!

Hey gang,
So I have a bit of a concern regarding "registration" for the party. The Kite Party kind of went from a private invite only kind of thing, to somehow a "anyone who registers can fly" thing. It's awesome that the event has become some popular, and I am truly very flattered. I am concerned however that by announcing that all ANYONE has to do to be able to come fly at the party is to "register" by doing so on this wonderful forum. The MAIN flying field is not for beginners, and we need to limit the numbers since the field isn't very big. I'm getting requests from people I've never heard of, some of who are beginners. I'm a little uncomfortable with what to say. My standard answer is "while you are welcome to come, the main field is not for beginners, and if you don't have excellent control of your kite, it isn't the place for you". Any thoughts? This party is for you people, so help me out on this one. Perhaps a seperate post addressing registration? Thanks.


Title: Re: KP ROLL CALL!!
Post by: kiteking on February 23, 2010, 01:25 PM
Maybe

new/unknown/first time attendees should be interviewed/given a check out flight before allowing them on the main field

Are we having an additional field this year??

I agree with both your points Dave, great to see additional people making the event, but they must be able to control their kite in tight spaces.

Additionally, if someone on the main field is out of control they should be prepared to be asked to vacate the main field without taking offense / making a fuss there is plenty of space north of the flying fields for them to practice, practice,practice. I'm sure I am not alone in saying I would be willing to give advise to novice fliers.

Policing should be the responsibility of everyone and should be done fairly, it is for everyone's safety
that control is a requirement.

That's my thoughts, anyone else?


Title: Re: KP ROLL CALL!!
Post by: chilese on February 23, 2010, 02:19 PM
Maybe if we can get the newbies to buy a nice kite from our host with the promise of a lesson from one of the gang, we could kill a couple of birds with one stone.

Just a thought.

Dave, however you want to handle crowd control is good with me. You are the host, you should get to make the rules.  :)


Title: Re: KP ROLL CALL!!
Post by: Wakeless Kites on February 23, 2010, 02:33 PM
Is there a line lenght limit established? Perhaps this would help if line were limited. maybe 100' or 80' even, just a thought. I know that when I fly our stacks and we have the room we are on 140' tp 150', most Quads are on about 90', light wind kites are on less.

Then theres the SLK's, most i would think are a non issue, but what about the big stuff? My big Parafoil is 300 sq feet with some tails on the line 120' long, then two 17' Dia BOLS with 30' bridles spinning all over the place closer to the ground. It is a well behaved kite and flies very reliably.


Title: Re: KP ROLL CALL!!
Post by: Allen Carter on February 23, 2010, 03:39 PM
Historically, 75' max is a hard rule for general flying. Longer lines can be used for demos when the field has been cleared. It's a pretty small field.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I believe the concerns are on the main (sport/multi-line) field

Good call on the line length,

All that are new to KP make sure you have some lines sets 75ft or less

I use 65ft so my stacks wont be too far over the limit.

Dave usually has line sets for sale

Dave will probably make it 77.5 feet this year ... I swear that guy loves to mess with us!

@Wakeless ... the length limit is for Saturday and Sunday for the official KP ... show up early or stay late and fly what you want.  Well, maybe not Kevlar, but any length you want.  KiteKing flew a stack one afternoon that seemed to fill half the beach.

Cheers,
Tom

It will be good to see you.  It's been way too long.  Will you come fly with Lynn and I?


Title: Re: KP ROLL CALL!!
Post by: Jim Foster on February 23, 2010, 09:00 PM
Many of us Rev fliers enjoy flying together in groups.  A group of two, three or even four takes up little more space than a single flier.  Four on 75' lines is not a problem.  Last year, at one point, we had a group of eleven (although not recommended) Rev fliers on 75' lines.  I'm sure there will be lots of group flying.  That should help some with the space limitations.

Also, although Lynn and I have been known to fly three or four hours without stopping, we don't do that at KP.  If folks fly for a while, then take a break, I think everyone will get in plenty of flying.

With the two sport kite fields, I'm sure it will work out.

Ask him about it when you see him.

Mike & family will be there from Wednesday morning until Monday night.

Thanks,

Hey KP dudes and dudettes,

At present, it looks like I'll be "day tripping" it, driving down for one of the two complete days of fun in the sun. So, as a newbie, I'm wondering, first, which day is better, assuming anyone has a preference? also, what time do y'all get up and out, so I can already be there, hogging up the best spots. Finally, assuming I drive in from slightly up north, where's the best place to park, if I get there say around 8 am?  See ya all there.

Lee

If I had to do just one day it would be Friday. Enough kite people to make it a Party, but fewer civilians. No boundaries. But Saturday is the big day, the most kites in the air and such. And the pizza/auction should not be missed.

Early morning light wind flying for sure.

Parking on site, espescially if you get there first thing, is worth the expense. I tend to have a car full of kites and it's nice to have that mobile kite bag a few steps from the sand.

+1 What Allen said. I'll be there before the sun comes up. I'm looking forward to seeing you again Lee. It's been along time, buddy.

Just came across something that might be fun for those who are spending extra time before or after KP.  The Queen Mary is offering much reduced rates for their "Bed and Breakfast".  A chance to spend time on some real history.

You may want to check it out.  http://www.queenmary.com/ (http://www.queenmary.com/)

WooHoo!!!

It will be good to see you guys!


Dave and I work on the same campus, maybe 1/4 mile apart, and for several years the only time we've seen each other is at Kite Party.

Maybe he's avoiding me the rest of the year...

Ok guys,

So if there is anyone not registered that needs a tag please let me know.

Dave if you have additional names, please email me

Thanks, I will see you all next week

Holy Crap!
I got to get ready for the annual GWTW Kite Party Kite Sale.
Time's a-wastin'!

Ya see, Steve is one of the most generous people I know. Not only does he allow me to use his forum for the Kite Party, the dude offers to have a sale during my event to help me raise money. Times ARE tough however, so I think I'll ask that he only donates 85% of the total sales instead of the customary 90% that he insists I take...

no matter what the weather decides to give us, a day or two with friends and new friends out does any weather issues, if we get to fly then it is all the better.

Really looking forward to seeing you all there.

Just curious, are there any, ummm... beverage regulations OTB in Huntington Beach ???

NO Glass or Alcohol.


Title: Re: KP ROLL CALL!!
Post by: Jim Foster on March 09, 2010, 08:25 PM
I think that glass containers and alcohol are prohibited.  Last Saturday we were flying next to the pier.  There were some folks sitting on the beach eating and drinking beer from bottles.  A life guard drove up and made them empty the remaining bottles into a trash barrel.

Beach  restrictions  (http://wiki.ocregister.com/Orange_County/Beaches/Huntington_Beach_coast#Beach_restrictions)


Darin,

I got you on the Kite Party site, but you will have to do a write-in name tag (didn't bring the printer)

Got to the beach around 11:00am and the wind was howling, around noon Mike Kory, Tom and Jo Ann Clark, and the Stephenson's showed up at the Kite Shop, then the Fosters were on the beach flying so we all went down. I was flying a 6-stack of Hyper Kites, then a 9 - stack of Rainbow Stunt kites, everybody else were flying Rev's, Rich Comras was there flying and Jynx came down to to talk, I think her blood is thin from being in P.R. for two weeks.Another great day in HB

see ya soon

We're up and running on our live video Huntington Beach, CA web cam...

So tomorrow (Thursday) click on: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/hbkp2010 (http://www.ustream.tv/channel/hbkp2010) to check-out what's happening at KP8 (no audio, as all you would get is wind anyway)...

We'll start the live stream for Kite Party 8 Thursday, when things get going, and continue the broadcast (during flying hours) through Sunday.

Later...
Jynx and Ross (my most wonderful-Geek-tech son who set this up!)
