Well winter has been cancelled in Michigan. ALL of the snow is gone as of last night. Maybe a cold front will blow through at the end of this week.
But not to be discouraged - MACkite will be hosting a demo and Christmas party this weekend. (We are all cranky and needed something to do).
Check out the line up of 2006 kites that will be available to fly - if you are interested in flat/bow kites make a point to come on up.
Here is the info:
January 7, Harbor Island Grand Haven- Flat Kite Round-up
I know it is kind of late notice however our next demo will be a good one. Saturday January 7, from 1pm till dark, we will be having a flat kite round up. We plan on having Cabrinhaâ€™s 12m Crossbow and 12m Switchblade kites, Slingshotâ€™s 12m Turbo Diesel and The Naish 12m Shockwave
all pumped up and ready to fly.
We will also have on hand the New 06 Naish 12m Torch, 7m and 10m Elements, Slingshotâ€™s 14m Octane, Ozone 6m Access, and the HQ 5m Beamer.
This will be a kite demo you donâ€™t want to miss.
Best of all afterwards we will be heading back to MACkite for some free pizza and refreshments
. We hope to have some new Dvdâ€™s for the party and maybe if we are lucky Brad Knoth or Andy Bolt will bring some of their new footage. I guess we will have to ask nicely
