Big D- You may ask the questions, but ANYONE can read the replies. The safety comments are directed toward anyone who wants to read or consider them, not just yourself. Of course we're all big boys and girls and can decide for ourselves when to go or not.
The safest course is to leave the kites in the trunk all year. Nobody wants to do that. My safety comments are "take 'em or leave 'em", they are general and widely accepted.
I'm glad nobody got hurt today. Im glad everyone who did go out, got along just fine. There may have been a few who stayed home today after considering the safety messages on this board. It's not easy making the "go / no-go" decision, especially when you're new.
I'd like to think that over the years, we've saved a broken bone or two by helping someone make the right decision.
You've been a great topic starter and a good lead into safety discussions and questions! Also, thanks for the kind words about Montrose.
See on the h2o!
