I would say that if you have ANY interest in kites, that the convention will be something you will enjoy.
There will be the nation's best stunt kite pilots flying their routines at the competition fields, and kitemakers from all over the country (and world) will be flying and displaying their kites during the kitemaking competitions.
The banquet and auction are a wonderful time, and a way to pick up some really unique kites.
And the workshops... how could I have missed that? There will be a bunch of workshops throughout the week that you can attend.
But, what it all boils down to is, the greatest benefit that comes from the convention is being able to meet folks from all over the country, and share your experiences with other like minded individuals.
I'm looking forward to it!
