Awesome!  I went earlier this week for a bit before I had to head to a mtb race.  I'd love to do the entire week next summer!

Thnx Benderdog! You've got more endurance than I; 10 hrs. on the beach has me positively buckled. I might be ready again by next year.  Cheesy

I'm sure I saw oldgoat and said hi, but he was busy in the field and may not have recognized me. I was pretty focused myself and took very few photos this year, and most of those of my own kites.  Huh

Outside of the contests I only managed to fly one other of my untested kites. This is 7/10 scale of my others, which I did so I could get 3 struts from each 4' dowel and also make use of scrap fabric to make the smaller sails. This one is an XA2 Diamond and my daughter shot the still of me taking the video on my phone.  Smiley

So I had to leave Long Beach before the ribbons were ready so I left some money to cover postage and my ribbons arrived in the mail this week. Checked even to match the Super Nova!  Cheesy Not much in the big scheme of things, but plenty to keep an ember under my bum for next year.  Smiley

Well we'll be there.  A quarter of a century of "being there."   Smiley

Were you there the whole week? I only had the one day so I missed most the fun. I was reading it was smoky first several days; how was the wind. Did you compete in anything other than handcrafted? How was the lighted kite fly? Did you go to any of the dinners or auction?

Anybody?
