Ruse Kite Festival

by Danny Nanchev
(Ruse, Bulgaria)

I am from the city of Ruse, Bulgaria, and I recently discovered that I LOVE kites - making them, flying them - you name it! So I found the MBK site, and became instantly hooked! Right now I am copying the plans and when I go out this evening I'll make some kites with my friends!

Back to the point. I'm writing in the Kite-Festival-Page, because I am going to organise a Kite Festival here, in my home town of Ruse. I'm going to propose it to the junior city council (a teenage city council, which makes decisions for teens' propositions or problems) and then, if I get lucky, they'll help me print out the ads and gather a whole lot of people to it.

I'm trying to start a tradition, for next year I'm thinking of going national, or even - multi-national. That's because Ruse is right on the Danube and has the only bridge in our country across the Danube. The mainstream of tourists pass through here, so I hope Romanians and other people would come next year.

Cross your fingers for me :-)

Great Idea

Glad my site has inspired you in this way. The enthusiasm of youth could eventually see a new kiting event in Europe! I wish you all the best and that you continue to enjoy kites, no matter what happens.

I can tell you love kites...

Otherwise you wouldn't be all the way down here near the bottom of the page :-)

So, could you do me just a small favor? 

Please sign up for my free monthly publication, "Tethered Flying". No other emails will be sent, and your details are safe with me. You do need to be at least 16 years old. There's...

  • A huge "photo of the month" (via a link)
  • 3 "tips of the month" (one each for beginners, parents and the more experienced)
  • A "flight report of the month" (selected from my own flying logs, with a photo)

Looking forward to hearing from you...

P.S. My free kite-making e-book "Simplest Dowel Kites" can be downloaded as soon as you sign up.
