Hi Everyone,

Well, it's coming upon us in just 27 days!!!!

If you haven't already gotten your completed registration forms in to me yet, please do so. Note, they must be in no later than May 15 for pre registration. Even if you are not competing, please complete the form for insurance purposes. Executing this in advance will shorten your wait in line at registration on site.

Also, please be sure you are sending them to the address on THIS YEAR'S registration form. A few of you have sent it to last year's address and I will not be receiving them.

Thanks so much to all of you and I can't wait to see you all in less than 4 weeks! C'mon, let's the party started!!!!!! :-)

Warmly,
Beatrix

WILDWOOD The 25th Annual Wildwoods International Kite Festival will kick off the summer season in the Wildwoods this Memorial Day Weekend, Friday, May 28 through Monday, May 31, on the beach at Rio Grande Avenue and in the Wildwoods Convention Center.

Laura,

I realized that I have not yet witnessed a night fly. I will have to rectify that at Wildwood. I don't have kite lights but I do want to see (and maybe try to photograph) a night fly.

I just have to finish dealing with the videos from MIKE before the Wildwood event. I still have a bunch of video clips of mega-flys to edit down to 10 minutes for Youtube. Unfortunately, I have no video of the 2 4x4 grid flys we did, only the stills I put in my gallery.

Hi Alden-

Great memories for sure!! Every time I use the light (it survived!!!! only the clip part exploded!!) I can't help but think about it and chuckle a bit!!!
That truly was a great time! .... then again, when is flying with the gang not?

Hi Wayne-

It's really amazing to watch. Oh, and a ton of fun to do, too!!! I might have a few lights you can use; if you like.

No worries about the grid action. One thing for sure; if you're flying, you're not filming! I have to sneak the shots in!!! <BIG GRINS>



Posted ImageI definitely feel another memorable weekend coming our way!!!!!!Posted Image



***Just a suggestion for anyone interested in the megaflys: ***
It will be helpful if everyone has a radio. It makes the entire flying environment more comfortable and much easier for the one calling to handle. Just my two cents.

Hey everyone,

Oh my GOD, we're less than two weeks away - woo-hoo!!!!!!

Ok, there's a couple of things I'd like to address in advance in the spirit of all of us being on the same page and having a great time . . . .

Field usage for the primary fields - Festival Field (the largest and north field), Field 1 (center, west), and Field 2 (center, east) - on both Sat & Sun will all be shared this year in a little bit of a different way as last year.

Field 1 will be utilized full throttle in the morning hours for varied non-Rev events, i.e., running of the bols, candy drops, Fighter Kite, Fugu Frolic, Scott Spencer Kite Makers Competition, Rok Challenges, etc., both days. On Sat, Field 1 will be utilized for these events until 1:30pm; on Sun, Field 1 will be utilized for these events until 12:30pm.

On Sat, Rev flyers will have Field 2 from the beginning of the day until 1:30pm; from 1:30pm on, Rev flyers will have Field 1. On Sun, Rev flyers will have Field 2 from the beginning of the day until 12:30pm; from 12:30pm on, Rev flyers will have Field 1.

The Festival Field will be "split" into 1/3 & 2/3 for Sat & Sun also, meaning that the west 1/3 side of that field will be utilized from 2:00pm-4:00pm for events which would normally take place in Field 1, with the east 2/3 of the field being utilized for large kites. The purpose of doing this is to allow all events to take place and for the Rev flyers to have a space to fly.

As you can see, everyone will be working together in order to allow all events to take place and to provide my client with what they're wanting to take place, which ends up being a win-win for everyone.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me via email!

Thanks very much to EVERYONE who attends and/or participates in whatever way to this event - without ALL of you, this certainly wouldn't be the event it is!

Rich Comras and I keep on promising each other every year that I'll find 5 minutes to fly with you guys - with a little bit of luck and great timing, I hope to fly an OPK with you guys this year!

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!!!

Warmly,
Beatrix
