(webmaster’s note – this festival is a LOT of fun!)
At the Long Beach Elementary School in Long Beach, Wa the 12th Annual Windless Kite Festival, January 18, 19, and 20 2013 will have something new. Friday the 18th gym opens at 4pm. Bring a flat kite or two to color the walls with. Friday is all about setting up and some free flying time. Saturday morning the gym will open at 8am for more free flying time. At 11:00 we will have the 1st ever Open Individual Indoor Singleline competition! Judged with the same score sheet, rules, and format as the Unlimited event. An indoor competition just for the single line kites. Then more free flying time. We’ll have plenty of opportunity to let people try this indoor flying out. We love to help people get started with a quick lesson. At 2:00 we will have the main event. The AKA Open Individual Indoor Unlimited competition. Last year we had 22 competitors, and we expect a great showing again this year! Then more free flying time until 5:00 when we head to the Kite Museum for the Italian Potluck Dinner. There will be awards and a bag raffle. Bring that special raffle item, the funds raised go toward supporting the Museum. You will also get to meet and hear from the new museum executive director, Chelsea Libby. Sunday the gym will open up at 8:00 for more free flying time. At 11:00 will be the Indoor Hot Trick Shoot-out, immediately followed with some demos and the grand finale. After all that you’ll get even more free flying time! Registration for the competition is $15 on site only.
