  1. Hi folks, good morning, So I'd like to begin by sharing with you that the WIKF 2016 Registration Form is complete and is attached to this post, if available. In the next few days it will also be available on the SFP web site as well as on the EL web site for the ECSKC! Please note of particular importance, with regards to communication concerning WIKF this year and probably moving forward, my primary source for all things WIKF will be the WIKF Facebook page, which our dear ol' friend & founder, Roger Chewning, set up last year - thank you Roger! Some of you may recall in previous years I've posted on the AKA, Rev and Kite Builders Forum's - and with the exception of communicating this Facebook page info there, this will probably cease in the spirit of providing all info in one easily accessable location. However, PLEASE NOTE, there are two Facebook WIKF pages, one is titled "Wildwoods International Kite Festival" (sub titled "Performance Art") and the other is titled "Wildwood International Kite Festival" (sub titled "Event"). THE CORRECT FACEBOOK PAGE IS THE PLURAL, OR "WILDWOODS" PAGE - in your communications with others in the kiting community, if you could kindly share this info with them I certainly appreciate it as it will assist in keeping everyone informed and in the loop - and sincere thanks in advance! And while you're on the Facebook page, feel free to post any photos, memories, anticipation comments, etc., - it will be fun to see & share! Thanks so much to all of you for continuing to make this event the success that it is - while faces come & go and the event is a beast to produce, I am always in such anticipation of seeing everyone who attends and am sincerely, sincerely greatful for everything everyone contributes - thank you so much and I can't wait to see you all soon!!! Warmly, Beatrix WIKF 16 Reg Form.pdf
  2. Two and a half weeks and counting! New this year! The ECSKC has a new format whereby they’ll feature a reduced slate of disciplines in exchange for more “play time” at the festival. Eliminated are the precision events and on tap are the ballet events, which will all take place on Saturday. A special thanks to Jared Haworth for coordinating this effort (of course, along with the team of sport kite folks) and for his always contributions to making this event work at Wildwood; to Will Smoot for being Jared’s equal side kick; and to Dennis Smith and Jack Wilson who will take over the throne in spearheading this aspect of the festival on site! And thanks also for the folks who come out to fly and compete for the ECSKC – let’s see if we can get some more folks off of the boardwalk this year and involved in sport kite! Registration: Whether you’re competing in the ECSKC, part of the Op’s team, or attending to fly for fun, please remember to complete a Registration Form and get it to me no later than THIS UPCOMING Saturday, May 9. Registrations received on or before that date do not incur the $10 on site registration fee. Media: This year will include some great media opportunities. Our very own Roger Chewning has initiated the “Wildwoods International Kite Festival” official Facebook page – why not look it up and join for all fun things WIKF related. Roger’s on a campaign for the events 30th Anniversary and is looking for photos from “back in the day” to post. Thank you Roger for your continued positive energy and push to keep WIKF vibrant and alive! There will also be various television and radio coverage throughout the event as well. Friday Night! Don’t forget to participate in all things for the SJKF Friday Night Social. As always, the club is putting on a spectacular buffet at an extremely reasonable price AND, it’s all you can eat – who can pass up an offer like that – food and great camaraderie! Following of course is the Friday Night Kite Fly – show the dark sky and the folks walking the boardwalk your best illuminated kite(s)! Sunday Night Dinner We’d love you to join us on Sunday night for dinner! Once again we’ll be at Little Italy in Wildwood Crest, a short five block walk from the hotel. Again, fabulous food, great conversation, and a room basically all to ourselves. Be sure to include yourself in this gathering by indicating such on your Registration Form and/or at the tent on the sign up sheet. Well, that’s it for now, we’ll see you in two and a half weeks and we all can’t wait to party and celebrate WIKF’s 30th Anniversary!
  3. Hi folks, Oh my gosh, thank whomever, spring has sprung! With WIKF only eight (8) short weeks away, there’s a boat load of things to share with you! Guests: We have some wonderful folks joining us this year. Characters includes once again Meg Albers & her cousin Nancy Houston; our Canadian friends Gary Mark, Walter Corsetti and Kevn Reynolds and Revolution’s sponsored team, 180Go!. I truly just can’t wait until WIKF to see these folks, they’re a true asset with terrific personalities! Yup, we’re going to have some fun! SJKF: The true “rock” club of the event, SJKF will once again host the Friday Night Social poolside at the host hotel, the Oceanic. The cost is a mere $10 per person for an all-you-can-eat buffet filled with some of the best food this side of the Mississippi. Festivities begin at 6:00pm. PLEASE FEEL FREE < J > to help them out with food donations and / or assistance prior to 6:00pm with food prep, table set up, food/cookware transportation, etc. There is an enormous amount of work that goes in to making this Social happen so if you can spare even just a short period of time during the day on Friday, it would very, very much appreciated. Cel Dallmer is spearheading this festivity and she can be reached via mobile phone at 215 805 7498 or via email at cdallmer@verizon.net with your commitment to food donation and/or to time in assisting. Kite Makers Competition: The Scott E. Spenser Memorial Wildwoods Kite Makers Competition is once again ablaze! Via the generosity of SJKF, the Kite Makers Competition will include cash prizes and AKA membership! There are varied categories and a myriad of details about the Competition which all can be found on the WIKF Registration Form (available on our web site, www.SkyFestivals.com > Events). Be sure to check out this info and more importantly, “strut you stuff” by showing yourself and the kiting world what you’re made of! Lodging: Don’t forget to make your lodging reservations! Our host hotel is once again The Oceanic. You may reach them at 609 522 6500 and be sure to mention you’re a kite flyer / attending WIKF for a discounted rate. Some Other Stuff: Our very own Roger Chewning is back and has gotten the bug to be a bit more involved in the event again. Roger’s looking into some great communication options (which I know sounds a bit vague at the moment) but hold tight, I should have something more to share on this in my next post. Auction: This year’s auction is once again shaping up. I’d like to ask that you remember that the auction supports maintenance of keeping this EVENT alive, and even more so now that one of our two sponsors has completely decided not to participate, so please, support the auction; it would be a wonderful thing to see this event continue and quite sad if it didn’t. As always, if you have an item or items you’d like to donate, we are more than happy to accept them. Whether you donate or bid, we sincerely appreciate your support! I’ll post again in a couple of weeks with additional info so until then, safe winds to all and as always, I so very much look forward to seeing you all in a few short weeks! Warmly, Beatrix
  4. Hi folks, Just a quickie here . . . the WIKF 2015 Registration Form is now available for download at the Sky Festivals web site, www.SkyFestivals.com > Events! Warmly, Beatrix
  5. Hi Everyone! I hope this initial communication finds you and yours all well and surviving the winter as best you can. I’m quite sure most of us are very happy to finally be seeing a little bit of warm weather – I never thought I’d consider 40 degrees a heat wave! So, it’s that time of year again when I begin communications re the Wildwoods International Kite Festival with this year marking the 30th anniversary! The registration form is almost complete and will be available on the Sky Festivals and Eastern League web sites within the next week or two. This year’s looking very strong, with some guests who haven’t been around in a while and it seems there's been some interest with folks posting in the 2014 events' comments already for 2015 - yeah and thank you! Our host hotel, The Oceanic, 609 522 6500, is accepting reservations for the event though be sure to mention the kite festival to receive the event pricing. Mark your calendars for this year’s event and I truly look forward to seeing everyone again in just two short months! Warmly, Beatrix
  6. Hi All, FYI, if anyone is still looking for lodging, I have one room open and available at our host hotel, The Oceanic. It is an oceanfront room, one queen bed, three nights, $300. If you're interested, give me a shout on my mobile at 732 822 4884 or email me directly at bpelton@SkyFestivals.com. First come, first serve. See you all in a few days! Warmly, Beatrix
  7. Hi folks, One week and counting – whooooo-hoooo! A special “guest” – for those of you familiar with the movie via 20th Century Fox & Dreamworks, “How To Train Your Dragon”, the sequel, “How To Train Your Dragon 2” will be released soon. With that, I am ecstatic to share with you that a kite produced by Peter Lynn for the character “Toothless” will make an appearance and fly at WIKF!!!! Come and see this bold, large, and very unique kite flying alongside you on Saturday! Another special guest is “my brother from another mother”, Blake Pelton and his lovely wife Olivia who will be joining us this year! ECSKC – if you’re a novice, or any category flyer, WIKF is a great place to get your feet whet! Be sure to register on site. Jared Haworth and Will Smoot are happy to report that competition numbers increased last year – let’s keep the momentum going AND growing, and perhaps one day we can re live the days of “multiple heats” in given categories! Kite Sales – for those who are interested in car collectibles, we have a very unique offering this year – Shelby Collectibles! In extremely limited supply, we’ll have on hand everything from radio controlled cars to packages with track and cars to individual cars. Some of the items aren’t yet even available in stores so come on in and check them out! Of course, the normal and customary kites, accessories, event T Shirts and Dallmer Ducks will be available as well. Sunday Evening Dinner – don’t forget to add your name on site to the Sunday dinner list at Little Italy. The response for this to date has even surprised me. This is when I personally begin to be able to breathe a little and I so enjoy it – it’s so great seeing all of the kiting folks together breaking bread and consuming adult beverages (remember, this is a BYOB restaurant)! As we do every year, seating will begin all at one time, when I arrive, as per the restaurant’s request. It’s important to keep in mind that they are doing us a huge favor by taking such a large party on one of their three busiest nights of this weekend. Checks will be provided on a PER PARTY basis, not on an individual per person basis – we ask that you please be patient and understand that not everyone’s food will arrive at the same table at the same time (unless of course it’s all on the same check). A Great Big Thank You – to all of you who will be attending; those making any contributions that I don’t see or hear of; to our guests; our sponsors; and especially to the FABULOUS Operations Team that helps in putting this event together. While I know I always tell you, I really want to acknowledge you publicly – THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for all that each of you do, it is always so very, very much appreciated! Now let’s party, shall we?!!!!!! Looking forward to seeing you all soon! Warmly, Beatrix
  8. Hi Everyone, Well, we’re three weeks away and counting – after the winter and spring (?) we’ve had, it hardly seems possible! Here are the latest updates . . . Memorial Fly: Our annual memorial fly will take place on Sunday at 11:00a.m. There are so many folks this year to remember and to celebrate their lives. For those of you who knew Max Robbins (Jason Robbins’ son), be sure to stop by the Festival Field tent if you’d like to sign a special kite Jason will have out for Max. ECSKC: Once again this year the East Coast Sport Kite Championships will take place with Jared Haworth of the Eastern League spearheading the competition. Jared has done a spectacular job in ensuring all things ECSKC related run smoothly, all for YOU, so be sure to give him a great big pat on the back and let him know how appreciated his is – and be sure to register! Jared follows in the foot steps of other great Eastern League Commissioners and he’s done a fine job at it! Dennis “Smitty” Smith will, as always, be our sound man – Thank you, Smitty! Registration Forms: If you haven’t already sent your completed registration forms, PLEASE do so ASAP. Remember, even if you’re flying for fun on our fields, we do need you to complete a registration form, for insurance purposes. The pre event registration deadline is a week from today, Saturday, May 10. Whether for this event or any event, it significantly helps those involved in any way (and trust me, as in many things, there’s a domino effect) with registration to receive these in advance, so please, be sure to get these in asap – thank you! Guests: Some of our other esteemed guests this year include Barry “Baz” Poulter, Tony Jetland, and the always beautiful Kathy Goodwind. And for those of you who remember him, John Rose will be around this year with his daughter Kerri (who is now 17-where has the time gone?)! I’m working on one more “throw back” guest, so we’ll see how that goes! Sunday Night Dinner: Be sure to sign up on site at the registration side of the tent for Sunday night dinner at Little Italy! Once again dinner is slated to take place at 7:00pm and we will have the side dining room to ourselves (for the most part). It is a short 5 block walk (or ride) and is a BYOB restaurant (there is a liquor store just around the corner!). They have a spectacular menu with something sure to fancy even the pickiest of taste buds. Feel free to check them out in advance at http://www.littleitalywildwood.com. Auction: I’m soooooooo excited about this year’s auction - there are some spectacular items that will be going out for bid!!! And if you’d like a clue, just look at some of the folks who are our guests! As always, cash and credit card are accepted. If you have a little something or something’s that you’d like to donate, we’re more than happy to accept and we appreciate your offerings! The auction is a major revenue generating aspect and helps significantly to keep the event going – so feel free to stop by and see what all the chatter’s about. And of course, bid on that beautiful piece you have your eye on! J “Mystery Baskets” will be bountiful! Remember, we’re only three weeks away – get your things together & packed; pray for excellent weather; and let’s get this party started!!!!! All my best, Beatrix
  9. Hi everyone, 5 weeks and counting!!! Registration Forms: If you haven’t already sent your completed registration forms, PLEASE do so ASAP. Remember, even if you’re flying for fun on our fields, we do need you to complete a registration form, for insurance purposes. Guests: A partial list of our guests include Meg Albers, Gary Mark, and Walter Corsetti to name a few; additional guests will be provided in my next post! Starting the weekend off will be the annual “Unlocking of the Beach” ceremony being held on Friday at 12:00pm. While in all previous years this has taken place on either the east or south sides of the Wildwoods Convention Center (WCC), this year’s ceremony has a new location – two blocks north of the north side of the WCC. The reason you ask? Wildwood is unveiling a new addition to their old-time theme with a “Wildwood Icon Wall Mural” which will highlight varied individuals from that era. Naturally with this being their first mural, it will highlight Bobby Rydell who sang “Wildwood Days”. And guess who’s going to be in attendance to unveil that wall mural? Yup, Bobby Rydell himself – who may just sing that oh-so-familiar boardwalk song we hear all summer! So be sure to be a part of this very cool event by flying your spectacular kites at this new location! I’m working on seeing if we can get beach vehicle transportation from the kite sales tent area to this new site & back again – no promises yet, but I’m working on it! New this year is a mass ascension which will take place on Saturday in Sunday at 10:00am on Field 1. Saturday’s theme is Arches while Sunday’s theme is Trains! Kite Sales will once again take place in the tent at Rio Grande Ave on the beach. Offerings include manufacturers Dallmer’s Ducks; Gomberg Kite Productions; HQ Kites; New Tech Kites; Prism Kites; Revolution Kites; Skydog Kites and of course, a few miscellaneous items. Why not stop by and check it out – and don’t forget to check out this year’s event TShirt! Auction: The deadline for shipping auction donations is fast approaching – Monday, May 12 is the final receiving date. Post this date, we will gladly accept your donations on site. As in previous years, credit card will be accepted! As always, thank you all for your support in whatever capacity you participate in with this aspect of the festival! Well, that’s it for now. I’ll be back with additional updates soon. All my best to you all and I can’t wait to see you all! Warmly, Beatrix
  10. Hi All, As I promised, the “light at the end of the tunnel” has arrived – spring has sprung! With WIKF only seven (7) short weeks away, there’s a boat load of things to share with you! Guests: We have some wonderful folks joining us this year, some who haven’t been with us in a while and others who have never been with us. Characters includes Barry “Baz” Poulter; Kathy Goodwind; Tony Jetland and his other half Jennifer; Steve DeRooy; Meg Albers & her cousin Nancy Houston; and, thanks to the generous assistance of the South Jersey Kite Flyers (SJKF), Gary Mark and Walter Corsetti. There still may be a few folks added to the list which I’ll share with you in the next post. With just this guest list alone, I truly just can’t wait until WIKF to see these folks, I feel like a kid in a candy shoppe! Yes, we’re going to have some fun! Event “Selfie”: Be sure to be a part of THIS photo op! While we may not crash Twitter like Ellen did at the Grammy’s (?), we’ll be sure to set the kiting world on fire with THAT photo! SJKF: Where do I begin with this group of characters? The true “rock” club of the event, SJKF will once again host the Friday Night Social poolside at the host hotel, the Oceanic. The cost is a mere $10 per person for an all-you-can-eat buffet filled with some of the best food this side of the Mississippi. Festivities begin at 6:00pm. PLEASE FEEL FREE < J > to help them out with food donations and / or assistance prior to 6:00pm with food prep, table set up, food/cookware transportation, etc. There is a BOAT LOAD of work that goes in to making this Social happen so if you can spare even just a short period of time during the day on Friday, it would very, very much appreciated. Cel Dallmer is spearheading this festivity and she can be reached via mobile phone at 215 805 7498 or via email at cdallmer@verizon.net with your commitment to food donation and/or to time in assisting. Kite Makers Competition: Once again this year we will have a Kite Makers Competition. Via the generosity of SJKF, the Scott E. Spencer Memorial Kite Makers Competition will include cash prizes and AKA membership! There are varied categories and a myriad of details about the Competition which all can be found on the WIKF Registration Form (available on our web site, www.SkyFestivals.com > Events).

I’ll post again in a couple of weeks with additional info so until then, safe winds to all and as always, I so very much look forward to seeing you all in a few short weeks! Warmly, Beatrix
  11. Hi Everyone! I hope this initial communication finds you and yours all well and surviving the winter as best you can. I know it has been brutal for many of us on many levels all over the U.S., though I promise, there’s light at the end of the tunnel - here in Orange County, NY, it’s going to reach 50 degrees by the end of the week, which will certainly help in melting the 28” of snow that’s fallen over the past three days! So, it’s that time of year again when I begin communications re the Wildwoods International Kite Festival. Attached (if applicable) is the registration form, which will also be available on the Sky Festivals web site soon. The Eastern League will also be posting this on their web site shortly as well. If you can’t wait and want it sooner rather than later, feel free to email me and I’ll email it to you directly. This year’s looking very strong, with some guests who haven’t been around in a while and a new activity, though more on that in my next communication! Our host hotel, The Oceanic, 609 522 6500, is accepting reservations for the event though be sure to mention the kite festival to receive the event pricing. Mark your calendars for this year’s event and I truly look forward to seeing everyone again in just 3 short months! Warmly, Beatrix WIKF 14 Reg Form.pdf
  12. Hi everyone, I have a POTENTIAL need and opportunity for an experienced kite flyer to be paid to fly a Rokkaku on Sat & Sun from approximately 9:00am - 5:00pm during WIKF. This is basically a kite-sitting job where one would be flying a Rokkaku for a potential client who will be located on the Boardwalk On The Beach. The kite flyer would be flying the client's custom logo made Rokkaku near them. If you are interested, kindly email me directly at bpelton@skyfestivals.com asap and please note, this is on a first-come basis. Thanks much and I look forward to hearing back from you! Warmly, Beatrix
  13. Hi everyone, Ok, this is just about the time where I begin getting really excited – just a few days away from the festival now! Here are some additional updates . . . ECSKC: * As I'm sure you know, the Chief Judge this year is Will Smoot - thanks Will, we're glad you're on board with us this year! * Activities in Fields 3 & 4 have been changed this year; Field 3 is now the Sport Kite Competition and Field 4 is the Learn To Fly field; * Sport kite demo's are taking place both Saturday and Sunday at 1:00pm on Field 1. Why not show off your stuff with 100% of the attention being place on YOU and your routine? Kindly bring your music ready to go with your name on it to the Festival Field tent, Operation's side by 12:30pm the day(s) you are strutting your stuff! * When you see Jared Haworth over the weekend, you may wish to shake that man's hand - he has worked tirelessly with me to make all of the changes that are taking place this year - thanks so much Jared! Indoor: * While there's no indoor kite flying taking place on Saturday or Sunday, the World Indoor Kite Competition will be taking place on Monday. Practice is from 9:30am-11:00am with competition beginning at 11:00am. All kite flyers MUST be out of the Convention Center no later than 1:30pm. * Should you decide last minute to compete on Monday morning for the indoor competition, there will be no option for paying - All indoor competitors must be registered no later than Sunday, 2:00pm. Learn To Fly field: * There's a couple of things taking place on the Learn To Fly field this year. The Learn To Fly section of the field will be spearheaded by the Cary family. Skydog Kites and HQ Kites will be present as well. For any of you who would like to assist, it would be very much appreciated. This is a big endeavor they are taking on and if our collective goal is to get more folks involved in kiting, we could certainly use everyone's help. If you've got some time on your hands or are waiting to compete, why not step over a field for a few minutes to see if you can help someone out. Remember how it was for each of us the first time we stepped out onto a kite field? The other thing that's taking place on the Learn To Fly field is something new called "Passport to Flight". This is an educational venture spearheaded by Glenn Davison with the assistance of Meg Albers, Archie Stewart, Andy Selzer and Todd Little. The area of the field Glenn's crew will be using will be marked by a "LESSONS" wind feather that Glenn's made. The idea here is that each participant will get their own "passport" which will include information on how to fly a kite, kite safety, a bit of kite history and information on the AKA. With the passport, the participant will try four different kinds of kites. For each kite they try, the passport will get stamped. If the participant succeeds and get's all four stamps, they'll receive their very own pilot card. Additionally, the first 25 participants each day will receive a FREE kite kit. This is yet another way to get folks involved in kiting! Other miscellaneous stuff: * If you have registered on line for a discipline which requires payment but have not sent in payment prior to Saturday, May 11, please note, this is NOT considered "pre registration" - per the registration form and, for those of you who follow the Eastern League, Jared's previous email communications/postings, " * On Site Registration includes registrations that have been sent or emailed in advance but have not been paid. " * Field 1 has activities taking place all morning long, from 9:00am – 2:00pm both Saturday & Sunday. This is the field that my loyal Rev folks seem to always migrate to <smile>. Please, note that Field 2 is completely open to you during this time frame and once all of the activities are done at 2:00pm on Field 1, feel free to move yourself over to Field 1. We really do need to keep Field 1 open for the activities which the sponsor of the event is expecting to see – if we want this event to keep coming back every year, the client must receive what they’re asking for – your understanding and diligence in this is appreciated. * The kite sales tent will be open beginning on Friday at 3:00pm-????pm and then again on Saturday and Sunday from 9:00am-5:00pm. Why don’t you stop by and take a gander at the offerings?! Well, that’s it folks, please travel safely and I truly look forward to seeing each of you in a few days! Warmly, Beatrix
  14. Hi all, Well, we’re only two weeks away from Wildwood, yee-haaaaa! In the spirit of not bombarding you all at one time, I’ll provide some info to you now and again in a few days. To start with, please note the following: Registration: If you haven’t already done so, PLEASE, complete your registration forms and get them to me. Registration is free unless you are competing; Friday’s Activities: The day beings with the official Unlocking of the Beach at 12:00pm with many of the local officials and media. If you’re here, throw up a kite or two for the media to get a shot of and who knows, perhaps you too will have your five minutes of fame with a live television interview! The Kite Sales Tent will open at 3:00pm through ???pm and registration begins at 4:00pm through 6:00pm. As usual, our tried and true local club, the SJKF, will be hosting the Friday night social pool-side at our host hotel, The Oceanic. For just a mere $10, enjoy a feast of fine, eclectic foods prepared by your peers! Enjoy some fine camaraderie, food and don’t forget SJKF’s raffle’s! Directly following the SJKF social is the Nite Kite show – bring out your favorite kites, throw some lights on them, enjoy the music and thrill the boardwalk on-lookers with your beautiful kite. Sunday evening dinner: Our Sunday evening dinner gathering will mimic last year and will take place at Little Italy (our past years’ normal Monday evening spot) at 5401 Atlantic Ave., Wildwood Crest at 7:00pm. Take a leisurely seven-block stroll with the gang as we meet up on the front stoops of the host hotel, drive yourself down, or hop on the infamous tram car. Keep in mind, this is the area’s opening weekend and the restaurant will be VERY busy – they are doing us a true favor in even taking our large group and they will attempt to accommodate us as best as possible. Having said this, there are a few items you may wish to note . . . * please, be sure to indicate if you are attending on the registration form as I must provide the restaurant with a head count; * Wildwood Crest is a dry town – if you’d like to engage in consuming adult beverages, there is a liquor store 1 ½ blocks away; * while our reservation is for 7:00pm, there may be a slight delay; * for those of you who attend Monday evening’s dinner here, you know we usually have the back room though we may not have the room all to ourselves; * all tables must be full, i.e., if there is a four-top then one party of four or two parties of two need to fill the table; if there’s three folks for a four-top, then I wouldn’t worry too much about the fourth seat; * each party, not each individual may request their own check; keep in mind this will take your order a few more moments to get to you; * the full menu will be available for you to order from, there are no restrictions nor a set menu; * because we will be a large party, 18% gratuity will automatically be added to each party’s check Auction: While we have some fine and exciting auction items up on the block this year, we could always use more and are very, very appreciative of any and all donations. Perhaps you’d like to get creative and build a little something to include. Or perhaps you have a piece or two lying around you’ve been thinking of forfeiting. The auction is a fundraiser that supports the event and is a crucial aspect to the events success and continuation – thank you for considering! As always, sincere thanks to all who participate and attend, with a special thanks to the entire Operations crew whom without them, the event definitively would not take place – kudos to all of you! Until next time, Beatrix And this will be me in two weeks . . . :-)
  15. Hi everyone, I hope this posting finds you all well! Here are a few short updates on the event . . . Without further adieu, attached please find (if it’s possible to attach to this forum) the WIKF 2013 Registration Form. Please note, the registration form is available on the Sky Festival Productions web site and will also be available on the Eastern League web site. Much of this year will mimic last year with the exception of the event that took place last year, the “Celebration of Heroes” will NOT be taking place this year. That frees some things up but keeps other things the same . . . The World Indoor Kite Competition will be taking place on Monday, though it’s looking like we will not have access to fly indoors on Saturday and Sunday – I’m still working on this one so keep your fingers crossed! Our Sunday evening dinner will once again take place at Little Italy at 7:00pm and more details will follow as we get closer to the date. For those of you attended last year, this year will mimic last years. PLEASE ENSURE that when you complete your registration forms you notate if you'll be attending the Sun night dinner as I MUST provide the restaurant a head count. On site registration will take place at the Festival Field Tent along with Kite Sales, all beginning on Friday through Sunday. DON’T FORGET, if you haven’t already made your lodging arrangements, I’d do so sooner rather than later as Wildwood is expecting a heavy turnout due to many of the northern shore towns' destruction from Hurricane Sandy. I’ll be in touch again in a few weeks for more updates! Warmly, Beatrix
