Is the expectation of the hot, dog days of summer with next-to-no wind getting you down? Not to worry! It's on!! We'll be holding another indoor event--let's call it an "indoor fun fly"--on Saturday August 1st from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. This is a one day event and will be at the same location as our previous indoor sessions; Bay Area Community Church in Crownsville, MD. If you have no indoor experience but would like to give it a try, come on out! Novices welcome! I'd also encourage the experienced fliers to actually fly full routines over just practicing, but what the hey, practice is fine, too!
The same conditions as before will apply for participation: Fliers will be required to sign standard AKA waiver forms for participation, and participants will be responsible for ante-ing their share of the church's usage fee, which for us is $70 per event/day. Unfortunately we cannot make participation free. So as an example, based on that figure, calculate $10 each if there are seven fliers....more if less fliers, less if more fliers.
The space is roughly the size of a school gymnasium. Also note (important), the ceiling is approximately 30 feet high, however there is a lighting and A-V bank hanging down on one side to approximately 20 feet high. Based on our experience flying here, we recommend using 12-foot or shorter lines. (You can probably get away with 15-foot lines, if careful, but you'll certainly be safe with 12'.)
Bay Area Community Church is at 884 Chesterfield Road, Annapolis, MD. Despite the Annapolis address, it's actually closer to Crownsville, just near the Maryland Renaissance Festival grounds. http://www.bayareacc.org/
One last note for our regional sister clubs and kiting friends who see this, you are more than welcome to come join us if you wish to!
Hope to see you all there!
