With a great lineup of kite artists attending from across North America and beyond, this year's Windscape Kite Festival will offer another exciting weekend of unique entertainment. On June 25 and 26, 2016 the skies above Swift Current, SK will fill with an incredible array of beautiful and colorful kites, with plenty of other activities for the whole family to enjoy.

This year's festival celebrates Windscape's 12th anniversary, and welcomes a number of celebrity flyers from years past, bringing them back to the Windscape Field to showcase their creations and skills alongside some brand-new talent from across the globe. Featuring enormous, wonderful kites and inflatables, out-of-this-world stunt kite flyers, quad line flyers and teams that thrill the crowd, and colorful banners to brighten up the festival grounds, Windscape Kite Festival truly offers something for everyone.

The festival would not be possible without the 350+ volunteers, staff members, and sponsors who all contribute to ensure the event's success. Their support has allowed Windscape to continue to grow over the past decade, becoming one of North America's very best kite festivals.

The kite festival is held in conjunction with Long Day's Night music festival, which runs Thursday through Sunday at the Windscape Field. With exciting kites, fun activities, and great musical entertainment, the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival 2016 is shaping up to be a can't-miss event this coming summer.

Sounds like a major event that will pull a great crowd. All the best for it - and hopefully the weather co-operates! Although these days it's usually possible to put up *something* unless there's an electrical storm and/or hurricane-force winds...

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!

Could you do me just a small favor though? If you're over 16, please sign up for Tethered Flying - my free twice-per-month publication. Here's just a sampling of the total content...

* 3 "tips of the month" (for beginners, parents & experienced)
* A fresh "photo of the month" (+ link to big hi-res version)
* A fresh "flight report of the month" (my personal flying)
* Updates on the latest board game from my-best-kite.com

Any questions? Here's more info on both the e-book and the newsletter.
