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.

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
