One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

IKE has organized a fun fly / retreat weekend. The fly will be at the Indiana Sand Dunes National Park. September 29 and 30. We will be flying all day, having dinner and hanging out, then doing it all again the next day. We will be staying at a local hotel. The park is a great place to fly, with winds typically coming down the beach or off the water. There will be quite a few Rev fliers, and some dualie and single line stuff to top it off. You can see the discussion on the IKE forum here...

Getting closer - we now have an event on the Illinois Kite Enthusiasts Facebook page, and we have a group rate at a local hotel.  Anyone is welcome - just let us know you want to come and we'll be glad to share the sky with you.

Cool!

Here's the link to the Facebook event:  https://www.facebook.com/#!/events/518150978210886/

If it affects your next-kite-decision-making Smiley . . . we have quite a few "dark side" quad line flyers in IKE . . . and I'm also sure we'll have people flying duals and SLKs there as well.  I'll probably spend a lot of time on my rev handles, but will also probably put up an SLK or two and fly a dual or dual stack at some point (assuming the winds are good).  If you don't already have a rev, I'm sure someone will have a loaner for you to try . . . .

Four days and counting!  We're getting excited!

I'll be putting up a mob of SLKs as a memorial, and we have quite a few dual and quad line flyers planning to be there.  Hope to see everyone soon.

I hope someone posts some pictures of the event. I haven't been to Indiana Dunes since 1982. Really nice park, or at least it was.

It was, until it moved. (Sorry. bad joke for those of you not aware that the dunes are constantly shifting)

It is a nice park. The beaches are relatively shallow though. Lots of affirmative responses so far. We're hoping to have a rather large crowd of fliers. Want to make this an annual destination event.
