Got Wind? kite Club
Last year, I stayed in a hotel near National Airport (something like $99 a night) and took the Metro into the city as Paul suggested. I had my full sized RSky bag with me but didn't have any trouble carrying it on the metro train... very few people riding from the Airport to the Smithsonian that early on a Saturday. Bring a Rok and some gloves for the team rok battle, and have some music handy... as much as I enjoyed flying demos at Blue Ridge last year, this is the event where I really feel like I electrified the entire crowd behind/beside me. The spectators were in rows five deep by the mid afternoon and the key is keeping the field hopping with things they find interesting!
