Registration is now open for the 2012 edition of the Richmond-Washington Regional Sport Kite Championships (RWRSKC). RWRSKC 2012 will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012, at Taylor Park in Ashland, VA. RWRSKC is a one-day, novice-oriented sport kite competition event. The day will start with one-on-one training for each new competitor, with each novice paired up with an experienced competitor for an hour of practice. Then, experienced and masters competitors will compete in open precision and ballet events. After each open event, the novice version of that event will follow. This allows new competitors to see exactly what they will be doing when they compete. RWRSKC is the best opportunity for someone who is interested in sport kite competition to give it a try and learn what it's all about.
RWRSKC is an AKA-sanctioned event, and will therefore generate points toward participation in the 2013 AKA Grand National competition. To find out more about RWRSKC 2012, go to http://www.richmondairforce.com/RWRSKC/
