Hi All,
The holiday weekend 4th, 5th, 6th and the Newport Non event ( July 12 and 13th) will host all your Rev needs right here in the little state of Rhode Island. Scott Weider, Through, Kitt Kites, will be all Revved Up!
We will have many Rev kites and lines for sale ON the field at Brenton Point with lessons if needed, So come on over to join in the Mega flies that will be happening all day on the 4th weekend and the 12th and 13th weekend.
Looking forward to seeing a great turnout of Rev flyers back at the point! :)

So bummed I won't be able to make it. Brenton Point has to be one of my fave places to fly. The views are spectacular, the people you get to fly with there are some of the nicest people anywhere and oh yeah, that steady 12 SSW aint so bad either.

Have a great time if you go!!!!!!!!!!

UPDATE:
The weather on the 4th weekend was not so great, but It looks like the 12th and 13th, (THIS WEEKEND) will be awesome with steady prevailing Southwest winds, Perfect for the point, and the spot to get your new REVolution Products from Scott Weider/ through KITT KITES, and, fly some team/ MEGA with at least 8 to 10 flyers already confirmed at the official non event, so plenty of time for all those who usually work, to just FLY all weekend.
FOR ALL YOU REV NEEDS, SEE you at Brenton Point, get there early, as parking will be tight!

Great weather, AWESOME location, and impromtoo, REV mega flies all weekend.
It don't get much better, nice relaxing weekend.
We had as many as eleven kites going, with decent, Mega Calling, organization, REAL FUN,, the crowds were happy for a non event, the skies over Newport, Rhode Island looked as good as one can expect, anywhere anytime, for those of you who have been to Newport in July you have an idea of what went UP!! For those of you who have not been, Make your plans for next year, you will be in for a treat!
John Burkhart "Quote" The BEST spot to fly kites ANYWHERE"
With That said: Extra EXTRA: read all about it.
Make your plans now, I say here, the first public announcement, We will have THE kite festival at Brenton Point State Park, Newport RI. the second weekend of July, 2009. Stay tuned for further updates.
Thanks to all who came and made it such a great weekend, I particularly enjoyed it as I continue my recovery, the last year for me has been a blur of Painful changes!! So to have the Point in my backyard and our family of kiters exhibit there best, this has to be the best place to recover. And for those who could'nt make it, you missed a good one and hope to see you next year!

I have to agree with Scott, for a NON-event this has probably been one of the most fun weekends I've had in a long time.

With a surprise visit from John Burkhart and his lovely wife, every time he unzipped his kite bag it had me anticipating the next masterpiece to adorn the sky.

Saturday was a great day but with low wind the standard b-series was all you saw in the sky and really made its impression on many with its low wind abilities.

Aside from that the ever so hilarious Smitty sound effects made a straight 2 hours of flying seem like a few minutes, was great to have the group that we did just pretty much goofing around with no expectations.

Sunday was 15-20 and again all that you saw were B-series vented I almost put up a standard vented just to be different but couldn't bring myself to do so.

While we had a few different people than the day before all went well and just as fun, there were many SLK's both days very few dual lines which surprised me.

This being the second UN-Fest Newport has seen since 2005 when High Flyers sponsored the last Official Newport Kite Festival I really have to think maybe these are a bit more fun where there were no roped off areas scheduled events or not being able to fly in a field because its for competitions and demo's.

Just good friends having a great time and putting on one hell of a show as a result (sorta what festivals used to be) it was a good blast from the past unofficially of course :kid_smartass:
