The Kite Class in Dwight (today) was really successful! Around a dozen kids (some with parents) showed up for the event. The Dwight Recreational Director wants to do the activity again next year!

i showed DVDs of both dual line and quad line kites to the kids. We constructed our own kites and later flew them at the field adjacent to the local grade school. i performed some dual line tricks for the crowd. We got globbered by a little rain, but then the weather improved and there were many kites afloat!

The local (Dwight) newspaper will be putting pictures of the event in the Dwight Herald soon. Next year, they want to spend more money and purchase inexpensive sport kites for each of the kids!

Wow! That'd be wonderful for the kids.

Great to hear it all went well.
