Richmond Cherry Blossom Festival

Dear Members,

The BCKA will be participating in the Richmond Cherry Blossom Festival at Garry Point Park, Sunday April 8th from 11:00AM – 4:00PM. We will be making sled kites with the children, and we’ve been asked to do some kite demonstrations during the festival.

I am asking anyone interested in participating to please come out and show the public what talented kite flyers we have. Any one liners, dual line sport kites, quad line and static displays are welcome to participate.

Please see the attached poster for more information.

Your participation would be greatly appreciated.

Yours sincerely, Cathie Jung, President, BCKA

Pacific Rim Kite Festival 2018

Hi there! This year, we’re moving our annual Pacific Rim Kite Festival to a new venue, out to Garry Point Park in Richmond! See below for further information:



New Windsox!

Dear Members,

As promised! Please find attached a copy of the BCKA newsletter The Windsox…A Year In Review. It has been a busy year for members as they have created, displayed and participated in various kite making and flying events around the lower mainland and abroad. It is always exciting to see new kites and ground displays whether they are commercially bought or hand crafted.

I would like to welcome all of the new members that have joined the Club. The Windsox will give you a good idea of the various events the BCKA participates in throughout the year. Please feel free to contact the Executive if you would like information about how to get involved in the planning of our festivals and fun fly’s.

I’d like to draw your attention to Page 16 of the newsletter. It has a special link to a YouTube video of our September Fun Fly. Thanks Jed Joson for posting!

Hope you find this edition interesting and informative.

Enjoy! Cathie Jung, President, BCKA
