2009: Jamestown Kite Festival, June 13-14

Postby Mike » Fri, May 29 2009, 08:43 AM

Jamestown, ND
June 13-14

I don't expect a lot of you to come out for this one, but IKE members 180GO! and Al Sparling will be there.
We'll be among a distinguished list of guest fliers:

Thanks to Chris Dodson of the Wings On Strings Kite Club, 549 photos can be found here. :shock:
I recommend just looking at the "best kitefest" album where they have selected 100 out of the 500.
Or just look at the album posted in the previous post, which is a smaller selection yet.

There's also a couple videos, including a no-wind / very light wind 180GO! demo.
You can see us walking backward and running forward to gain ground :P

Thanks for finding that Jeff.
Another IKE member was there too: Al Sparling was flying his giant kites.

Yes thanks for finding and posting Jeff. What a GREAT montage of flying. Also love the little effects that were edited into the filming.

Just another something I came across.

The local NPR station had a show before the fest where they promoted the event. The show is here...they talk about the fest with Chris Dodson about 2/3 through the program.
