I was wondering if Revolution Kites is planning a 20th Anniversary event? It seems to me there should be a 20th Anniversary event on some California beach this spring or summer. This event should also include breaking the North American & World Mega Fly records. That would be a nice 20th Anniversary present for the good folks at Revolution Kites.
If one isn't already in the works we should get started organizing one. I've never put anything like this together but am more than willing to help in any way I can.

Uchinada (Japan) is also hosting a 20th anniversary celebration, far as I know. ;)

Would be nice to see one in the USA though.

It's not a "Rev" event, but I think Kite Party will be as close as it will get in California. The first few years there were very few Revs, mostly dual line sport kites at KP. Year before last it was about half and half. Last year it was about 75%. Revs are becoming very popular.

Last year we had a 16 Rev Mega Fly at KP. This year we could break the 29 they had a few weeks ago at Treasure Island, FL. I'm not going into just who is coming, but with iQuad, a large group from the mid-west, several from all over California, others from Washington, Oregon, Canada, as well as the east coast, there could well be 30 or more Rev fliers.

This is probably the best time to assemble a large group of Rev fliers on the west coast as there is little or nothing going on elsewhere to draw them.
Fly together! Share the joy, Share the fun

Since Rev is a California company it would be nice to have the biggest 20th Anniversary event here in California. It's not like there's a shortage of beaches or good breezes here. :P It needs to be scheduled for a time and place that's convient to everyone. Especially the good folks at Rev. ;)

A part of the reasoning behind the Bristol event is that its ALSO the 20th anniversary of The Decorators, the kings of quad team flying.

But, ya, cali would be good too. Berkeley perhaps?

Berkeley would be a good choice. It gives people enough time to plan on being there if they hadn't already.
Maybe The Decorators would like an excuse to come visit California. :P

Why not San Diego where the weather is almost always warm and sunny.
To top it off, the REV factory is nearby.

Go to where the first REV was built and flown.

If we held it in New Jersey we'd have to import the cheese, the wine, and the kites from California. :prop:
Nay, better have it out here. :ani_victory:

The trick is getting the funds and time to start an event from scratch (i.e. San Diego), versus setting up within an established event (like Berkeley).

San Diego would be ideal, but I don't know that anyone wants to take the lead on raising funds, securing permits, yada, yada, yada.

At Kite Party, space is at a premium... A 20th Rev festivity would definitely take up some major space, so that pretty much leaves Berkeley or WSIKF.

Alas, iQuad and Too Much Fun won't be at WSIKF this year, due to the UK trip.

Seems to be narrowing down...

It is just a dream. Maybe! Someday!
