In Topic: MIKE Who's Going

28 April 2010 - 05:42 AM

Wow! That just about says it all. Three days of kite flying in Ocean City made for one spectacular event. With the perfect winds and perfect weather on the perfect beach certainly made the Maryland Int'l Kite Expo one to remember for a life time. Not only did we have huge crowds in OC but we had something no one else on the entire east coast had. The" iQuad Bubble". Apparently this phenomenon kept a weather shield over Ocean City allowing us to have one fantastic kite festival. There were demos, kite lessons, giant kites, competitions, dual and quad kites, Rok battles, you name it we had it. Of course no festival would be complete without a lot of good people making it happen. I truly appreciate all of the kite flyers that made MIKE a tremendous success this year. I personally want to thank the following individuals for all of the support and help they willingly offer:

Team iQuad - John, Steve, TK, Joji, Monkey and Bazzer
Rev Riders - Scottie, Rich, Laura and Sammy
Gomberg Kite Productions - Susan Gomberg, Jeff Burka, Jeff and Joyce King,
Dennis Hawley and Dale Ray
Fog Flyers - Rich Miller and Jo-Ann Rasmussen
Ben Dantonio from Revolution Kites
Sky Dog Kites- Jim Christianson, Jim Cosca, Frank Morill and Dodd Gross
The Sky Dog Band - Jim, Mike and Jason
HQ Kites - Chris Shultz and Craig
Focus Kites – Paul de bakker, Lisa Willoughby and Jared
Marc Conklin and Terry Murry - Eastern League
Gary and Maggie Engvall and Mike and Janette Van Meers
Cath and Elliot Shook – Flying Smiles Kites
Paul Le Masters and Barbara Birnman
Dave Soutar
Paul Dugard
Alan Ault and Evelyn
And a Big Thank you goes out to all of our Sponsors:
Town of Ocean City
Alaska Stand
Shoreham Hotel
Comfort Inn

Each and everyone of you that attended were truly awesome.

This year we saw the return of the Mid-Atlantic Stunt Kite Championships (MASKC). I want to again thank Marc Conklin, Terry Murray and Maggie Engvall and all of the competitors that flew in the event for bring the competition back. MASKC is an integral part of MIKE and in my opinion it make this event complete. I could not have done it without your help. My goal is to continue to build this event so we offer something for all types of kite enthusiasts.

Today we begin the planning for next year's Kite Expo. Please let me know whether you loved this festival or your suggestions for improvement. Good or bad we would like to hear from you. You can post it here or on www.facebook.com/kiteloft or send me an email at info@kiteloft.com.

Thanks again for making this years event so successful...
