Title: Lam Hoac Lincoln City Trick Clinic - June 25th and 26th
Post by: tpatter on April 16, 2009, 04:58 PM
Folks,

Lam Hoac will be doing a trick clinic while at the Lincoln City Kite Festival in June. The clinic will be a 2 day event on the Thursday and Friday (June 25th and 26th) before the festival starts (June 27th).

Lam will cover any desired topic - dual line, quad line, tricks, routine planning and advice, music, general questions or advice, you name it.  The clinic starts at 10:00 and ends at 4:30 with a break for lunch.  Dinner will be on Thursday night after the clinic - details will be given there.

There will be a very reasonable cost to cover expenses and the optional dinner.  Email me or PM me for details if you are interested in attending.

It's a fantastic opportunity to learn from one of the best flyers/teachers/designers/builders in kiting today, have alot of fun with other flyers, and get a great meal in one of the best areas available for flying kites.  Don't miss it!

Are you flying to Portland I assume?

I will be driving right through on my way to LC.  We can arrange a time and I can pick you up at the airport on my way.  I will likely drive down Weds evening.

I have not yet made hotel arrangements.  One of the guys I am going with wants to camp, so I will be looking into that. 


I'll send you an email and we can see if it works out.

I sent out an email to those that told me they were interested.  If you did not get a message, PM me.

My whole family is going with me, so I will not be camping on this trip.   I looked around a bit and found several hotels that are reasonably priced.   Anyone who has experience with a good place to stay in LC, please post.


Thanks,
-Tom

This is rotten timing, I have to work those days. I would have loved to drive up & attend Lam's clinic.

Peace

Just to be clear, the clinic will be held in Lincoln City, not Seaside (which was talked about earlier).

I've heard there is a very bad cold going around - perhaps you might "catch" it for those days!

OK, Tom. Count me in for dinner as well. I'll show up Thursday 10 am with kites & checkbook. I'd like to bring Jan along to the dinner if you need to know that for reservations.   ;D

Thanks, Ray.

Be glad to see all of you here!

Stop by our new store at Tanger Outlet Mall and say hello! (But place all your orders through Steve.....)

Everyone had a great time and we all learned some new tricks and flying techniques!  Thanks to Lam and all that attended.

The wind was was decent on Thurs (with a bit of rain in the morning), and rockin an rollin on Fri (12-25).  Friday was tough for tricking dual lines (except for Lam!), but we all flew and had fun - it is such a treat to fly with Lam even with the wind in the high teens and 20s, he was tricking away and making it look easy. 

It was nice to meet so many flyers and be able to put faces to names/forum ids - it was a delightful group to fly and chat with.  I'm looking forward to doing it again.
