Actually they weren't all bunched up at Kelly's - the water texture made it *look* windier than it really was, so people were fooled into using smaller kites than necessary. The result was many people weren't staying up wind, which spread out the crowd.

Is there a reason that you can't just come and ride instead of plastering this on the web and inviting all the "mindless sheep" to join you ! What a bunch of shit flies !! :evil:

OB can be really deceiving - The same thing was happening on Saturday when it was blowing 30-40 and everybody was under-rigging and ending up downwind that day too

Mr. Mayor (grin),

Nice to see you in the water yesterday!

With all due respect, I think the OB-KC webcam is much more of the cause of any new faces in your front yard than someone posting here on BAK. But it's a point well taken - I guess the original poster was looking for some 'company'?

You might want to switch to camomille tea. 8)
I'm usually not really worried about that, OB will take care itself of the people who are not ready for it. =

Alright, I tease, I tease...
More seriously, it's a community forum.
Expecting people not to post about where there is wind is like eating hot jalapenos and hoping not to have your anus set on fire.
