Bol Kites

Dear BCKA members…

 

As some of you may know, the 1st Annual Victoria Kite Festival at Clover Point last June was a huge success. Plans are underway for the 2nd Annual festival on May 29, 30, 31. One of the events at the festival was the children’s bol kite races. See link for a short video http://youtu.be/2PusAZkjuOo  .  Fellow kite maker, Mario De Lucca is currently working on making a set of these bol kites for the Club to use at its various festivals. He is requesting help by anyone willing to share in the making of them, or  by donating some material. Each bol has 48 panels and takes approximately 3.5 yards of material of any color.   If you would like to participate in this project, please contact Mario De Lucca at: Mario.DiLucca@gov.bc.ca

 

Sincere thanks, Cathie Jung, President, BCKA

Hello Everyone;

I have attached two flyers for some upcoming workshops we will be having here at the World Kite Museum in Long Beach, WA.

We are excited to be offering Robert Brasington in January, and Rod Beamhuard in February. If you could please forward these along to the people on your distribution lists, that would be wonderful.
