Hey Puzzle, now that that video I took with your camera is famous on Youutube and Kitelife (The Glider Craze, Spence Watson), I'll take credit for that but you get credit for the graceful indoor flying- well done, you've got the touch!

Folks should know that gym is at Iona Elementary School just northeast of Idaho Falls where Dean Turnblom and Todd Copeland had arranged for a demo for the kids.  Steve started flying that Chiroptera before the event officially started and had a couple of hundred kids going nuts watching that kite.  They were all seated on the floor and he'd bring that kite floating just over their heads out of reach and they were just crazy and laughing with delight!  I have never seen such a positive reaction to a kite demo before or since!  After the kids left we kept on flying a while in the gym when I got that video of him doing some really sweet flying.

Watching Steve got me hooked and now I'm waiting for my Chiroptera.  Will's got another run coming up soon.  It will be a great companion for my Emong!

it was something else hearing those kids scream when the kite flew over them
