Thanks for the folder Mike (adminman).

Well, it's about time to start thinking about next year. I'll start pulling together the list for next year over the next few weeks.

I think I pulled that from the Chicago kite web site. I'll recheck tonight at home.

I checked - that's the date Chicago Kite has on their web site . . . . so not sure what to do about that. I leave it as-is for now.

I edited in the confirmed date for Fair in the Air and added the Pontiac festival. Updates to the Google calendarcoming soon-ish. are now loaded.

Maybe I will load some of them up on FB next . . . . .

Thanks!

Unfortunately, we just received word that Clear Lake / Color the Wind has been cancelled due to the ice melting, which means the flying field no longer exists . . . . .

Addition to the list - St Louis Gateway Kite Festival - April 22nd (with Indoor flying on 4/21) - Chesterfield, MO. I think I already had that one in the calendar, but I just got an email from Mitch Cordover with the Gateway Kite Club.
