Re: Current Projects

I've got connections with a local artist that would likely let us use her studio space. She has classes there frequently so there's room.

We are looking to go to the local Police Station (this Halloween) to toilet paper the place! No one has ever done that before! There's an ordinance in Dwight outlawing toilet papering!

Re: New Date For DeKalb OCT 5th 2008

The 'show and tell' is on again this year. Bring a kite you'd like to share. This is just for fun and you don't have to fly it. It can be anything you'd like from your collection. Something we don't get see often, a new creation, or a kite with a good story to go along with it. It doens't even have ...

Re: 2008: Sept. 14, Dekalb Kite Festival, Dekalb, IL

Turns out no one is going to being flying in DeKalb today. Hurricane Ike's fallout is making for a very soggy weekend. However, there's a tentative rain-date set and the other IKE and friends may be welcomed back in town on Oct. 5th. Stay tuned for further updates from our fearless festival organize...

Re: Noise Or Music Makers For Kites

Maybe a buzzer would work. I wish I could tell you were to find directions for one but I can't remember any. They're most likely seen on Japanese kites, IRC. They are simple, small pieces of paper folded over a spar that sorta clap together in the wind and make a buzzing sound.
