I probably won't be able to flee the scene before 8:30, so I should be there NLT 11.

Looks like I'll miss the wind.  Wink

The wife and I'll be there between 9-9:30, looks like we will be having a North Wind, I think a good direction at the park, only the School to be in the way of the wind Grin

Sounds like I might get a chance to put the Bulldog up in the morning.  Cool

Car washed & packed at 11:15 PM, just gotta throw together a cooler, load up Denny, decide if I can make it to Gridley for gas or get it here, grab a breakfast burrito for the road and get outta here  Tongue

Call ya' in the morning Steve & Chris and see where your at. Bob & Chrissy are not going to be able to make it, have to be at her parents house to get it ready to sell, realtor wan'ts to "Feng Shui" it, LOL, after 46 years they are going to find out that if they had put the couch over there life would've been balanced and good  Cheesy

Looking forward to seeing everybody, glad you can make it after all John.

I-80 West was CLOSED!?   Huh today.. (due to a major Traffic accident) so I was not able to make it to the Roseville Kite festival event. :'(

BUMMER as I heard it was a SUPER day, and GREAT wind too!

If you want to know more about Healthy Chocolate, or coordinate a tasting, check the website for my email and phone number.

HEY! I'm looking forward to the kite pics and vid's since I couldn't make it in person!

Hopefully they will be posted/listed and/or something!


Thanks! Phil

This was a fun event. Thanks to Bob and not Bob for putting this together.
The standard valley wind syndrome made the magical music-al mystery-cal mus..ic...tour...or, music-al magic-al...whatever, a challange. I think the contest may have been rigged  Lips sealed
It was great flying with everyone, and thanks Dano for manning the camera and for the home brew when I had my hands full.  Wink
