For those longtime Wildwood Festival Kiters, I found an old Rio Motel postcard on Ebay today...

I'm sorry I never had the opportunity to stay there, it looked like a neat place. :( The hotel where my family vacationed at in WW when I was a kid was one of the first to get razed in the Condo Boom that happened there. I still miss it like people miss the Rio.

Well,
I finally finished going through the videos that Barb & I shot at Wildwood and put up the last 2 parts on Youtube. They show excerpts of the indoor kite ballet competition (we missed the earliest entries), and the indoor exhibitions all shot on May 25.

All 4 parts are linked here:
Part 1 Misc Kiting
Part 2 Mega flys
Part 3 Indoor Comps
Part 4 Indoor Demos

This completes our photographic record of a great event.
