The 2014 Treasure Island Kite Festival (DIY)

Do It Yourself (DIY) - This is an unofficial event, posted simply to give you ideas/locations to practice photography on your own. There is no designated FCCP Organizer, thus no pre-determined meet area or person in charge. If you wish to meet up with fellow FCCP members, feel free to use the event comments area to coordinate among yourselves. If there is enough interest or if a FCCP Org decides to lead, then the event will become official! Have fun, be safe, and remember to share your photos!


THE 17th Annual TREASURE ISLAND SPORT KITE CHAMPIONSHIP returns to Florida in 2014 (as part of the annual Treasure Island Kite Festival). Following the successful revival of the competition in 2010, TISKC has reclaimed its prominence as one of the premier sport kite events of the year.  Competitors from up and down the East Coast will gather at Treasure Island, FL during the Martin Luther King Holiday weekend January 18th-19th 2014, for two days of excellent competition with plenty of time to socialize on one of the best kite flying beaches in the country.  This year, TISKC is presented by Windworks.

A full slate of dual-line and multi-line sport kite competitions will be offered on Saturday and Sunday. Events will be continue to be completely integrated into the festival, which promises to bring a larger audience to watch the dazzling acrobatic displays.  When the sun goes down, the event keeps on going!  Join us on TI beach for giant bubbles and night kite flying (weather & wind permitting).

As with previous years, TISKC will be offering Team Multiline Precision and Ballet as disciplines! Given the growing popularity of group multiline flying and the growing experience out there, this event will be spectacular.

TISKC will also be offering a novice class competition for multi-line precision and ballet.  If you haven’t participated in a multi-line competition, this is your chance!

Individual precision events for Experienced and Masters classes will be run according to program precision (formerly called league-style) rules. This format has proven to be more audience friendly and allows for a speedier running of the competition.
