Many people have asked us about this gathering of Kiters. First, let us say this NOT a Kite festival.
This is, as our motto states, “Just friends Flying Kites”.
So how did this gathering come to be you ask? Let us tell you the story. For years our friends Steve, Sue, Art and Beth having been coming to Treasure Island Beach in February and we have enjoyed their company here in FL. We’ll, the four of them and us (Jay, Kelly and Star) all went to the Antelope Kite festival in Aug 2 013. At the event we saw old friends and met new ones. Anyways, The seven of us were chatting about the February gathering and Barry and Susan Tislow joined in and Said “We go to Florida every year in February, We would love to join you at TI”. As they were saying this Fred and Donna Taylor walked up and said, “Were going to be there at that time as well, Let’s pick a weekend and we’ll all meet there together!! This is officially how KiteMania was born..
Since coming home it has evolved to having a Name. FYI, Kiting Tampa Bay always names their Fly’s even our Monthly Gathering’s. Also, It IT now has an Event Page on Facebook and we decided to invite every FB friend on our List. Why Not? This is what KTB does. We organize kiting gatherings. See you there.
