Title: John Chilese's Photo published in Michigan Newspaper
Post by: vertigo2u on March 31, 2012, 10:10 PM
I was shocked to see the photo.  ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ??? ???  I knew right away I had seen it before and it was John's style.  The paper is for the Macomb County of Metro Detroit area.   Which is made up of three counties.   Macomb is Blue collar workers and good people.   I get the Macomb Daily newpaper every day.  I have kept the article so I can send it to John.  I took it to "Kites and Fun Things" today also.  (Different county.) I suspect Mel helped lead to photos.  He helped with the article... Enjoy !!!!    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Of course had to put a Vertigo spin on it....

Thanks for the info.

It's a small pleasure to see a photo of mine used to promote the sport.

Photo credit a plus.  :)

It is Dave Shenkman on the Shadow.  ???

He is quite a smooth flier on the dualies.

We just need to get him away from those evil quads.

My oops.  I don't readily recognize Dave since I met him in person for the first time this KP and didn't click on the pic  ::).  Now the puzzle of whos in the back ground.  NOt JIm foster, beard and hat don't look quite right. Looks like he's holding quad handles though. Hmm ozone Jim maybe?  Does look vaguely familiar.

Damn these non stop rainy days got me looking for amusement wherever I can find it :P
