Title: 8 days straight of rain!
Post by: Dano on June 06, 2009, 11:25 AM
I can't take it no more!  :'(
I'm gonna have to go find some rain gear, and get out there and fly.

Jeez, this is a desert state, and i'm starting to feel like i live in Oregon.

Send some of it to Las Vegas. Lake Mead is under 50% capacity with no rain in sight.

Just don't send all of it.

You just need to drive an hour or so west.  Of course the "refreshing Delta Breezes" are blowing so bring some high wind kites! :)

Any evening flies planned between the 5th-10th of next month?  I am going to be in the area.

I got to fly for about 4 hours yesterday, but the rain is back again today..

I imagine that i'll be the first one at the Silver Bowl on Friday, trying to get caught back up on airtime due to all this rain.

Bring the Shadow John. I want to try it out again.  ;)

kent has an unflown custom ichiban just waiting for some wind. maybe friday is the day.


Title: Re: 8 days straight of rain!
Post by: ainokea on June 09, 2009, 07:53 PM
Have you seen it yet?
One thing with the Ichiban and my Reprise is that they need at least a steady 10-15 mph wind
to fly. Can't wait to see it.

i've seen the kite, not the baby.  :P

when he wasn't around last friday i figured he had his hands full with more important things, but hopefully he'll come out this week so we can share our congratulations in person.

Post by: ainokea on June 09, 2009, 10:23 PM
Yes, I'd like to give him my best wishes and congradulations.

So what the colors of the kite?
