Upcoming event in Rhode Island

A request was forwarded to us, a request for kite fliers to fly:

The East Bay Coalition for the Homeless in RI is having their 20th Bike-a-thon to raise money to support families that need help through these difficult times.

The event is sponsors are the Rumford lions Club, the Children Medical Group as well as FOX Providence.
It is on Saturday October 3 Colt State Park in Bristol RI starts at 9:30 in the morning.

If it is possible for any kite flier, or anyone to get out there and rally on the riders then go for it!!!!
Colt State Park is a great place to fly -it was the home field of Windswept Kites for 15 years.

Something new this way comes!!!!

Working on getting a bunch of new kites in from Karl Longbottom. 


His new Pterodactyl is good for UL days and medium winds days.  
This kite is lots of fun to actively fly (but then again so is his "Pants")

These historic critters are climbing into the bag of a lot of the sport kite fliers over in the UK!  
Will one crawl into yours?

picture swiped from Karl's website...what can I say it is a good pic!
