July Indoor Fly

Friday, July 11, 7:30pm – 9:30pm

This is the night before our regular meeting

Once again we get to join the Silent Electric Flyers of San Diego at Alliant University for indoor flying. We have had a pretty good crowd at the  previous events and all proclaim they are having a great time. So don’t miss out on this great opportunity even if you only watch.

They invite us along as a way to defray their cost of renting the event site so there is a fee for each kite club flyer, $10 each last month.

66th Annual OB Kite Festival

10 May 2014, Dusty Rhodes Park, Ocean Beach, Map If You Need It

10am to 4pm

Note this would normally be a kite club day but the May meeting is the 17th!!

Last year we were invited to be involved with this kite festival for the first time in many years. It was a pretty successful event, except for a lack of wind. We had some pretty good kite makers and kite flyers showing off their stuff and Glen Rothstein on the microphone.

This year we hope for more of the same but better. So come on out and support the OB Kite Festival,the Kiwanis Club, SDKC, and most important the kids and their families.

We are still waiting for more details but last year there was reserved parking for club members but you had to get there early. Latecomers had some parking challenges.

May General Meeting

Saturday, May 17, Tecolote Shores, Map If You Need It

Note the DATE CHANGE!! This is the THIRD Saturday due to the conflict with the Ocean Beach Kite Festival.

Monthly Activity: Traditionally we have a Memorial Fly for those members who have passed. If you have a kite that belonged to someone who is no longer with us this is a good month to air it out.
