  5. I have been quite busy....and embarrassed I have not done more than basic shares with this yet. Stay tuned. I had 3 short runs while there. A few really challenging moments with soooooooooo many kites in the air. Big lifters...a gajillion homemade kites flying on anything that could be used for flying line. Quite an experience... Even met some kite fliers from KiteLife that I didn't know about...from the Caribbean. Do the search.....you will be very impressed at some kite flying in different parts of the world...the competition and goals of competing are very different from what we see The clear box kite and crew are the ones I am referring to..they made this kite, along with some of the night kites in the hotel lobby. no test...launch it baby...let's see what it does! Awesome! I was so stoked to have a camera in the air Until then..... Enjoy some KAP photos from Cartagena, Colombia https://flic.kr/s/aHskiH8SfQ

  7. Bear Lake North Shore Kite Festival I’d like to let everyone know that we will be starting up a new kite festival to take place at Bear Lake in Idaho. Date and Time: 8/15 and 8/16/2015 from 10am until 6pm. Location: North shore of Bear Lake in Idaho (near St Charles ID) at the Bear Lake State Park http://www.bearlakekitefestival.org This is a great location to fly kites. The lake is about 20 miles by 3 miles with bright blue water. This time of year the water is low so the beach area is huge. The park also allows people to drive right down on the beach so you can drive right up to the flying field both days. The park is waiving the $5/day fee as long as you let them know you are there to fly kites (celebrating the Park and Recreation’s 50 year anniversary). There will be a flying field open for multi-line flying and demos as well as plenty of room on the beach for any/all single line kites. We will be giving kites away to the first 70 kids each day. We will have music playing all day long on both days. Please consider attending and supporting this new kite venue and event and let me know if you have any questions!

  10. Once again this year...I was fortunate enough to spend several days in Treasure Island for the 18th Annual Sport Kite Competition. This was my third year in attendance. Nice weather saw fair winds and large crowds.Sunday brought some of the largest spectator crowds I have seen. Unfortunately,I was flying line all day and unable to KAP.....never thought I would say that was an issue Saturday however, I did manage to put the camera up and do a 1500 picture run throughout the area and competition/demo field. I have had the opportunity to review and crop out 50 or so pictures and uploaded them here for your viewing pleasure https://flic.kr/s/aHsk7haVfu
