August Indoor Fly

Friday, August 29, 7:30pm – 9:30pm

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.

Seal Beach Kite Festival

Sunday, October 19, Seal Beach Pier, Map If You Need It

This will be the 18th Annual Edition of The Seal Beach Japan America Kite Festival.

If you have never been, or haven’t been in awhile you are missing a great event. This is a traditional kite festival with show kites, lots of great demos by famous kite fliers, candy drops, catch the kite tail events and kite making for the kids.

In addition, the Japan America Society puts on a display of Japanese Culture including a visit by a Master Japanese Kite Maker, Music, Dancing, and Fighting Arts Demos.

More info can be found here: www.kiteclub.org
They still have last years info up (as of Aug 24) but I wouldn’t expect any major changes. The info should be updated fairly soon.

See last years report here: Seal Beach 2013 Kite Festival
