Lovely day today out at Frank Liske -- even with the loss of the best field, it was still a good flying day. Got some new stuff up.

Beware of scams and spam out here., even in the "Kite world "?

Mary Buck

Hi All. Last year I was selling my dad's kites and had an ad on kitebuilders which was recently re-posted. Although someone sent me a link to the recent ad I still cannot access it. I wanted to let everyone know that the recent post selling Gene Lewandowski's kites is not valid. I have no idea if this has been set up as a scam or something else but in the process of trying to get the ad removed, I wanted to warn everyone. Thank you.

How do I say THANK YOU to the AKA and those who nominated me for the 2014 STEVE EDEIKEN AWARD? THANK YOU!

I received the award on Columbus Day at an indoor fly for the people of Boston's Fenway area. This event held at the Boston YMCA's NEW gymnasium hosted over 400 visitors and thanks to kite fliers from around New England we made over 175 kites that the kids decorated and flew indoors.

If it were not for all my friends in the kiting community who through the years unselfishly shared their expertise and advice none of this would be possible.
This award will always be treasured. It is an honor to be listed among the legends inscribed on it. So once again,
THANK YOU American Kitefliers Association. See you in Enid '15.
