BCKA Christmas Party Date

Members and Kite flying Friends…Please save this date!

The BCKA annual Christmas party will be held Sunday December 8th. Please join the BCKA at the ABC Country Restaurant (3580 #3 Road, in Richmond).

The Club’s Christmas party will coincide with the annual “Snow Queen” fun fly, and, considering many of our kite flying friends will be in town that weekend, we invite them to join us in celebrating the festive season together. Dinner will be held at 4:30, allowing plenty of time for flying during the day, and socializing in the evening.

Please spread the word, and here’s hoping many of you will attend!
More details about the evening will be sent out as the date grows nearer.

The Executive, BCKA
