Post by: tpatter on April 29, 2010, 05:05 PM
Folks,

I've got Aug 19-22 which is Thursday->Sunday.

Is this correct?

Competitions run Friday-Saturday-Sunday.
John B's rev mass ascension thing at the South approach I think runs all week.

Cool single line stuff going on all week, with plenty of room left over to fly all day if you want.

Not sure this year, but traditionally there's been a sport kite comp in Ocean Shores the weekend before, so you could make an entire 9 days of kiting if you like.

Check http://kitefestival.com/ (http://kitefestival.com/)

Careful though - you might never want to fly around town again after you've spent a day in a 5 MPH on-shore wind.

It's not "JB's mass ascension thing", whole lotta folks involved from multiple countries, but yes, it'll be going all week... Coming to a head on Thu/Fri/Sat. ;)
