I may still be able to work going alone...but I'd need some new lingerie to get in the mood for the TSA grope at the airport...

Just confirming, that the competition & demo fields are one in the same for this year, correct Steve? If so, that's such excellent news! It's so tough to decide which to support otherwise. I want to go fly team stuff with all my buds, but I can't completely forsake that sport kite arena either!

So, I talked to Scottie this morning, about how we can include everyone, all together and make a great show for the folks on the boardwalk besides. We already have the best sound man in the business thru Terry Murray. I'm thinking we need a few additions though, maybe a open class mystery ballet (or one for quad-pairs!) Throw all those folks interested, their names into a hat and then draw out the pair teams at random, fly some mystery ballet.

Or a hot tricks shoot-out, like Smithsonian's, where the audience votes for who gets to stay on the field, until there's only one of us left.

Terry can spin the jam songs and we could do a mentor's challenge too. Take kids out of the audience, (I like waist-high & under as a size restriction on the contestants!), give 'em a 5 or 10 minute lesson and then throw 'em into competition, head first. You can talk to your student, but not touch anything. Let's see who's the best teacher among us is,... A mentor's challenge, the kids think it's all about them, HA! it isn't at all,

. . . just bow facing northwest Washington DC immediately and whisper my name, 'cause I'm the yoda of kiting instructors, I will OWN you all.
My kid can beat yours, out of a wheelchair, one-handed, while juggling flaming plates, bring IT!!

The field set up will be different this year. We want to bring everyone closer together. So the main demo field will also be the competition filed for ballets.

The large kite filed will be right next door to the main field.. so we ask everyone to be mindful of the large kite area and like last year please give WhatAKite their space.

Terry is an awesome announcer and I expect that between he and I the field will have constant entertainment going!!


Is no one curious about the raffle item??? No guesses???

Could the raffle item be something that flaps in the wind...........maybe provides shade..........shaped like an insect perhaps.......and made by someone with the initials.... M. B. ???? (no, not Milton Bradley). Just going on a whim. Posted Image

I recently had the airport stand up massage (Cincinati style) and the agent said that "cargo" pants is an automatic pat-down because of the pockets.

Concerning the kite fest activities.... any plans for an "official" night fly.... or do as a few of us did last year and just "wing" it. Posted Image Also, any banquet rooms in the beach front hotels large enough to work on indoor flying?
Looking forward to more tip touches off the passing trailer.

I just got in Birmingham Al to Orlando Fl. with cargo pants on about two hours ago, No pat-down or any other special looks. Perhaps they have finally figured out that little old men are not a threat.

Checked Best Western and check in 14 Jan - Check out 17 Jan Suite-2 Double Beds, First Floor, Pool View is going for 350.00

Anyone want to split it?

Otherwise I'll take some seats out of my van and crash in it cause I'm gonna be there and this will be my very first kite festival! Might need to borrow a shower could be a little cold in the ocean at that time of year.

Update:

I have some family members flying in from NYC at the time of the festival so I'll be driving from Gainesville Fla.
to and from the fesival on the days I go. Anyone on my way need a lift let me know I have room for two more.

Melanie and I (and Laurel, who can sleep on the floor) have an efficiency room at the Thunderbird with two double beds, and would gladly take in a roommate to offset the cost for all. Any takers?

The festival is coming together. We're working on some of the small details!!

There are 4 acts signed up for the Saturday Nights Treasure Islands Got Talent Show!!!! We would love to get a couple more. There is a guitar available to use if you like to join us!!

Starting to take peeks at the weather. It might be a little chilly this year.

Sounds like you know whats going on. I've checked the web and can't find a schedule for the festival. Is there anyway you could give me a day by day breakdown on whats going on? I have to pick and choose what days to come. I would love to make every day but alas thats not going to happen.

friday or saturday would have the highest density of flyers available. . ...., that would be my recommendation.

More to see & more folks to meet!
just pull a "Jim Cosca" (show-up with nothing and fly OPKs all day!
He has more than anyone else I know, probably more bags of kites since he's stopped counting individuals long ago!)

Try to make one of those weekend days.
Or, track the weather, see which day looks to have the best conditions for your enjoyment,
some of 'em will be out on the beach regardless though!
