Issue 36: From the Editor

Hello my friends, issue 36 is off and running! We’ve gone out of our way to bring it to you jam-packed with personal, touching experiences from various people in kiting… With so much on our plates these days, our chosen past time seems to be among those most able to provide profound release, both artistically and in general.

I am also pleased to announce that I’ve just moved one of our Directors at Large to the position of Assistant Editor… Dave Shattuck has been one of the driving forces behind developing articles and various projects here at Kitelife since joining the team in early February of last year, I’m ever thankful for his hard work and contributions to my sanity.

The kite season is officially coming into full swing, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at the various festivals around the country… We’ll make sure to bring it all home to our readers here at KL, building up to our traditional daily reporting from the AKA Grand Nationals which is to be held in Seaside Oregon this year.
