Girl Scouts - Kite Flying

by Lori
(Auburn, MI, USA)

Many years ago my Girl Scout troop took a trip to Frankenmuth where a kite shop let us make kites very similar to this. It is a rectangle base 18"x24" with scalene triangles on each end, 6" height, and no tails. I still have this kite and it goes up easily each and every time. This kite started my love for kites. Before, they were just frustrating.

Yes - a well designed Sled can be pretty fool-proof, with nothing to adjust or put together. Yours must have been well-made to fly so reliably without tails and in various wind speeds.
