this thread is intended to communicate and maybe improve our beloved launch. any comments from any level of rider are welcome. Lets be careful to not go overboard, I think basic rules of the road and kite etiquette work pretty welll at Metro now, just maybe some general refinements would be helpful especially on busy days.

+be mindful to rig and park your kite out of the main launching area. Metro has a limited "sweet spot" locate on top of the grassy knoll downwind of a gap in the trees. if kites are parked in the sweet spot it becomes difficult to avoid snags and find the room to launch. The main launch area is bigger than just the "sweet spot" too, the central lawn also sees launching traffic. Maybe only park kites on the outside of the knoll?

+roll up your lines if you dont foresee immediately relaunching your kite.

+lets be direct in our actions between the guardian trees and around the general entry/exit point. commit to coming in or going out, dont waffle around. kiters coming out have the right of way, give them space. if you're riding and having difficulty staying upwind, dont add to the problem and get stuck in the outgoing and incoming traffic.

+respect the windsurfers

I will post the the details under the Metro riding spot once they are confirmed. Just forward them to me and I will get them up promptly.

I am spoiled at Strawberry Island, I have been at Metro only a handful of times this season. I will have to pull myself away from the Strawberry Fields for a Super Lifty Metro beach party real soon!
