Here are a couple of pictures I took while I was flying at a nearby High School. Apparantly there was a big track event this past Friday and they had schools come from all over the state. Some kids walked over to see what I was doing in between heats and events (I was flying a rev at the time with the Gomberg Battle Rok staked down for wind doping). At one point I had a whole crew of about 10 kids running around. I had set up almost every SLK (Single Line Kite) I had in my bag and they were flying everything including a pair of Longbottom's bottoms, and one of Gomberg's Stuning Pyro Ghost deltas. The two young men in the pic said it was the most fun they have had in a long time, and they felt like kids again...( I thought one was a coach ,but turns out both were 17,...they felt like a kid huh? I chuckled quite a bit...). I thought ya'll would appreciate the pics and story. I am going to try and make it a point to fly at more of the events now. Well low an behold I had an E-mail this morning from one of the kids to order a kite. Moral of the Story? Go out and fly, spread some fun and make some kids feel like kids. We all know they need it!
