    A short time ago a good kiting friend of ours Claire pasted away. She always had a smile on her face and was a joy to be around. She was Pat 's right hand gal in making wonderful food for us kiters at events. She is missed dearly! So this Saturday at Kite Mania we ask you to fly a purple ribbon on your kite for Claire. The photo below is from KiteOberFest Claire, Ben Donna & Pat.

    Hello Rev flyers, Kiting Tampa Bay is hosting Kitemania on Feb 7-8, 2014. This is NOT a Festival.. Just a gathering of kiters... Some of you might remember that in 2008 we set a record for Rev fliers in a mega fly on Treasure Island Beach at 29. Kelly and I were looking at the Number of fliers coming to Kitemania and we think we have a very good chance to up the record. So, if you are going to be in Florida on February 7-8 please grab a rev and join us. To set the record we all must do at least one maneuver together

    Here is the plan…
    First, this is going to be as quick as possible. This does not mean we won’t be flying team like we do, all day, but for the record attempt I would like to be finished within a half an hour.
    Second, the Maneuvers are going to be super simple and this means everyone is welcome to join in. Only flying in front of yourself in your own window. No Grids and No Following because that will lead us into unwanted trouble. Maneuver one will be the Audio Wave witch entails flying strait up and then back strait down in succession. Also we can create an arch with the middle kites flying the highest. Simple.

    After we set the record with these two maneuvers all is fair game.
    For more information go to

    I hope to see you all on a kite field real soon..
