Yup, NormOfTheNorth is heading South!
I'm making my annual trip south in a couple of days, staying a "baker's week". We used to always stay in Madeira Beach, then my Sis moved North a bit to Seminole. But this year, we're being joined by some other family from CA, so Sis has arranged for us to stay in a friend's condo which is very close to the amazing beach behind the Bil-Mar Hotel on Treasure Island!
We usually get to that beach on the Sunday afternoon of our stay, but this arrangement should make it easier to fly there lots more often.
On the fighter-kiter side, I've already swapped contact info (through Bruce L's "Fighter Kite Central Forum") with Gumby and Terry McKite, and I think we all have fairly flexible schedules, so we should be able to get together a few times before we fly back north.
For the rest of you, please post or message or something, and we can all join in a repeating multi-kite-party thing, weather permitting!
