Anyone attend the Berkeley Kite Festival this past weekend? How was it. Did it have a good number of people attend? I was hoping to go, but going health issues with my uncle prevented me from going.

I attended. As it was my first time, I can't attest to the crowd size although I did hear it was less than expected. It was fun, very windy as the breeze filled in. It's quite a spectacle watching all the people buy kites and then proceed to tangle them up and get them in the way of the pro's.

I competed in novice sport kite competition and my wife and I flew some of our single lines and trialed a new KAP rig I made just in time for the event.

Overall, pretty fun experience, and I always love visiting San Francisco

I was there both days. Saturday was a bit light on attendance, but Sunday more than made up for it. Lots of nice kites and great flying. Grin
