RE: [snowkiteidaho] Fw: [BSA] Jolly until I found that shallow beach...
- End of Season??? Bah humbug!! We've got plenty of wind coming. Tom I have screws or fins in my bag, help your self any time something like that happens. or take one of the extra boards.
I found the same shallow beach and almost took a header. Betsy came in behind me and she also was supprised. so we headed up the canyon to play with the kiters. It was a great day on my 6.2 and 112 litre board. betsy on her usual 5.5 and never off plane. The wind calmed down so we all came in. Jaymac was out with Jake and it looked so inviting I joined them with the GO board. should have taken the 112 as it was really up. what a great 2nd session. got off the water around 11:30+. jaymac kited home and jake got a boat ride from the dam.
I offered my house again for the "end of year" BBQ. Who is the pres. and VP. Lets set a date and get going. This next weekend is fine by me Sat is better as I work till 7:30 fri. but I can work around work. Sun afternoon is good also. Lets get "J" to bring videos and I'll get the BB gun and targets ready. If kids are coming I have a tramploine and can get an inflatable or not. Let me know JimJames ( Jim ) Tighe
