  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
  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
  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

  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

  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 join
  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
  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 t
  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. The
  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
  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 [email protected] asap and please note, this is on a first-come basis. Thanks much and I look forward to hearing back from you! Warmly,
  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 o
  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
  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 . .
