2010: Kites Over Lake Storey, May 1-2--Canceled

Postby Mike » Thu, Jan 21 2010, 11:27 AM

UPDATE (2/8/10): It has been canceled for this year.

Well it’s time again to start planning the next Kites Over Lake Storey Festival, this year will be the 7th annual event. Wow…time sure does fly. This year it will be Saturday, May 1st and Sunday, May 2nd, 2010.

As always I would like to try to get some new things in this year. So please let me here your ideas. Some expressed idea’s from past participants: Kite making class, Kite flying lessons, Bol Races (we did do one year).

Here is what I have planned so far:
*Candy drops on Saturday and Sunday.
*Also if anyone might have a basket that would work for the candy drops on both Saturday and Sunday please let me know.
*Silent auction going through the event days. Feel free to donate an item(s) for the silent auction….please let me know so I can plan accordingly.
*50/50 drawing

Thank you again for all your help and participation. Hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,
Mary Turnquist
Recreation Supervisor

I still haven't been to this one. Here's Jeepster's report in the archives from last year:
http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=65&t=1463

I may go this year. I know several other members go every year, maybe they'll fill us in.

There are some free hotel rooms available for fliers. So if you're up for a demo or have some cool SLKs maybe I can get you a room.

This may be canceled for lack of interest! It'd be sad to lose another festival.
I'm in!

Hey everybody we need a good headcount in the next few days of who will be coming to Kites Over Lake Storey, At present the response has been very low and if we don't get a few more filers to sign on to the event, we may have to cancel. So please respond one way or the other please!

I guess we were too late:

Hello to all my kite flying friends.

Kites Over Lake Storey for 2010 will not be happening this year due to the low number of kite flyers being able to attend this year’s festival. I hope everyone has a wonderful year and has a wonderful time flying their kites at other festivals.

I want to thank everyone for their time. I hope next year the economic situation will be better than it is now.
...

Thank you,
Mary Turnquist
