I took out the bit about the trainer kites....they are obviously fine so why mention it? 2M ok on a packed beach? NO...on an empty day..yes...
If the CPD wants to add a "Lifeguard Decisions are FINAL" or something that fine. I think we should submit what we want and let the CPD worry about their end.
I'd say leave the part out about beach flying. Lets self police as always. However, on a dead day you may want your kite in the air to set the lines etc. really want the lifeguards shouting you down?
I thinkn keep it simple and focused on the goal.... having something to point to when someone is uncertified and questioning the whole place / procedure. The signs can't explain the whole process, but they can aim people in the right direction.
Everything on those signs WILL be used against us by the bird people and dog people.
