With an entire indoor soccer field at our disposal, this one day event will not include demonstrations or special guests - instead, the focus will be providing ample space all day for everyone who attends (field can accommodate between 7-10 fliers at one time, depending on average skill level... In short terms, there is TONS of space and everyone can get in a lot of flight time on various kites.
The entire space is being rented just for the fliers ($500 for the day) and *there is a cover charge of $25 for anyone 16 and older* so 20 participants will have us break even, any small excess will be donated to the World Kite Museum, if there is a larger number of registrations then the money will be applied toward a future, similar event for the fliers.
If you would like to attend, please contact Wayne Dowler for payment info - there is a **deadline of March 15th**... Late registration (before March 31st) goes up to $30 for the day.
Wayne: "I have a paypal account linked through my email - email@example.com - please send any payment as "gift, friend or family" otherwise paypal takes a small amount out for fees."

You can also use shorter sticks without the rigging lines for balance change and kickstand purposes only, without the stiffening effect on the frame, which can be mounted lower on the uprights to change the balance.
