KOGL Test Fest

Postby grandhavenski » Tue Aug 28, 2012 5:32 pm

Hey all,

Just wanted to let everyone know the dates for this year's King of the Great Lakes Test Fest.

September 28-30, 2012
Grand Haven City Beach
If you kiteboard in the midwest, you need to be here for this! Test new gear, fun, rep seminars, competitions, fun, parties, community, music, art, fun, paddle boarding, professional riders- and did I mention fun!

This weekend is also Indyrock Fest and Artwalk in Grand Haven so lots to do outside of the kite stuff as well.

It would be great to see some southenders.

Here is a link to some accommodations for those without a couch to borrow.

I went to this last year and even though the wind didnt hit like we wanted, it was a blast. Good people, and fun times. If anyone wants to organize a big house rental for the Chicago group, you can count me in for 4.

I'v got the Wed through Sunday off. Brining my SUP with just in case no wind. Rock festival was cool last year. Always a fun time even when the wind isn't great.

Jake and I just picked up some "surprises" from Holland last week. Going to have to wait and see what this turns into. Some more fun on the way.
