As many of you know I am a regional director for the A.K.A. and as such I have a question that I would like answered by all the
members of this forum.
1. Are you a member of the A.K.A.?
2. If you are not please tell me why?
You've asked a great question ... part of which I've asked myself repeatedly since I started flying kites a little over a year ago.
I have not joined the A.K.A.. The honest answer is that guilt is the only reason I can currently think of to join. Kiting and kiting folks have brought me a ton of enjoyment since I started flying. The family has shared flying tips, building tips, kites, food, shade, etc. ... I really should step up and contribute by joining.
However, nowhere is A.K.A. really pushed or sold. I've never received a sales pitch from my flying friends, local club, merchants or kite manufacturers. With no sales pitch, there's no rush to change the status quo!
PS ... Ben, if I find myself staked out in the sun with no food or water at the next club fly, it's your fault!!!
