Two comments:

1. Sounds like you had more fun than I did going to another bird-brain kite
festival (I like kiteflying very much; I will explain that comment in
another posting).

2. Wasn't there an article in HPR about launching over 100 Mosquitos at
once? It looked like most of them ignited.

If you will be in Wapak next year, I hope to be there (it will have high
priority).

It should be simple to get 30 Gnomes to launch all at once, if you just use
40 Gnomes :-)
