Snowing when I left Dallas, even in Waco! Arriving in Austin the sun
broke through.
This city is special. Wonderful people and nature did a great job here.
I was very impressed by the brave team that was flying (who was that?).
I could
hardly stand in place at times due to 50? mph gusts. Anyway, well worth
my time
and I'll come right back if someone will tell me the rescheduled time.
Thanks Austin,
Jamie

Hi Jami,

My understanding is that the event has been rescheduled for Sunday, March
15.

The team(s) flying  were Austin End Of the Line Kite Team flying the Black
with red, white and blue striped TOTL VIP's and Troy Gunn of Team TKO and
Kelly Reed, Dennis Phillips and Stephanie Wise of Team Implosion
also flying TOTL VIP's with Black with plum and turquoise stripes.  With
Troy Gunn's leadership we were able to pull off an 8 kite mega fly.

ALAS -

Zilker Festival was blown away by our Dear Mother Nature las weekend!  The
local TV stations were in awe but still managed to squeeze some good
footage of us "die-hards" flying in 40+ mph wind!  Yup - lots of folks
travelled far for this festival only to have it cancelled.  Were we heart
broken?  Did we cry?  Heck no!  We formed a mega fly, buggied, set up large
inflatables, hogged up the field and flew till we broke every kite in
sight.  By the way - the "team" that flew all day was Troy Gunn, Kelly
Reed, Dennis Phillips, Eddie Zihlman, Jim Cox, Steven Ploof, Stephanie
Wise, and Kevin Kirkendal.

Indeed, the festival was postponed due to high winds and "freaking" cold
wind chills - hey, our Texan skins are accustomed to no less than 55
degrees!  But fear not fellow flyers - its been rescheduled:

Sunday, March 15 (hope some of you guys can make it a second time!)  
Same time: 11am-6pm
Same place:  Zilker Park, Austin, Texas, USA, Earth

As Always - reply with your questions!
Steph!
