There are only 47 days until the AKA Annual Convention in Nags Head, NC. Is everyone getting excited? The Outer Banks is one of the best kite flying areas in the country. I can't wait!

I did want everyone to know about the cutoff dates for early registration. If you are anything like me, you are cost conscious, and taking advantage of the early registration discount will save you $26 per person. That may not sound like a lot to some people, but every little bit helps in my book.

Early registration of $189 for the AKA Annual Convention ends at midnight Saturday, August 16th. Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by August 16th to be accepted. Clothing pre-orders will stop being accepted after the 16th as well.

After August 16th, the price for registration jumps to $215, and day passes jump to $45. If you wait until after September 13th, you will have to pay at the door at the rate of $240.

So make sure you take advantage of the early registration discount by registering online at:

Good winds to all!

Absolutely outstanding kite and video of it, Jim Nichols!

Fabulous Firebird kite by White Bird Kites

My 442nd kite video. This lovely creation from White Bird Kites is about 7ft (2.1m) long, and makes a wonderful spectacle when it flies.
