Important Information for this weekend’s Kite Festival in Parksville

Good Day everyone. We are in the final stages of preparing for this years Parksville festival. Are you planning on coming? If so are you capable of flying on the demonstration field? If you answered YES can you please let Wayne (kiter_wayne@telus.net or Tim (tim.knight@gmail.com) know so we can get the schedule of flyers together. Our setup will be the same as last year, one field for the stunt kites and one field for single like flyers. We are hoping to put more emphasis on single line kites this year as well.

Looking forward to a great weekend of colour and wind.
