We have a community picnic on October 6 in Wayne, IL. We always provide kites for the kids to fly and it has become quite a tradition. This year we are looking for kite enthusiasts to participate on a "higher level". Anyone is welcome to come fly their kite in our huge field! If anyone out there is interested, I would sure like to know so we can advertise.
We are just looking for some "real" kite flyers and are offering a $250 cash prize to the
person who has the coolest kite--to be judged by our little guys.
We really aren't looking for anything special, just bodies--with kites!
Aurora and Montgomery are pretty close, we are neighbors to St. Charles and Geneve--I know whoever
comes will love this little village. We have a cookout, music, bonfire at dusk and a lot of nice people.
...I just wondered if any one would "commit" to the day so that we would know we would have special kites in the sky on our day.
If you live in the area and have some cool kites, it could be easy money! I would think flying a stack, or putting up some homemade beauties, or maybe a really big kite would impress the folks. If I lived nearby, I would be all over this.
If a couple of you go, maybe you could agree to split any money if one of you wins the prize.
If anyone is interested in going, post here and I'll get some more information on location and such.
I've flown at an occasional small festival like this, and it can be a lot of fun to mingle with the folks and be the "kite celebrity".
