Oh my oh my.... A few weeks ago I hatched an idea.... an idea for a challenge. A special day dedicated to doing something kite related. .... It looks like this week I will be releasing the full details about how to get involved and how to participate.
I just wanted to take a second and say that I am positively overwhelmed by the amazing response from folks already. I put it out there, the beginning of an idea, and people love it! Not only have several folks signed up and said they are eagerly awaiting more information, but a few super awesome manufacturers, shop owners, and other businesses have taken notice and have offered to sponsor various aspects of the challenge!!
So what is this challenge? It is the We Fly Global Kite Challenge. It is on August 24th, 2019 and it is a one day mad dash to do SOMETHING kite related.
WHO IS THE WFGKC FOR? Anybody can participate in this event. It is open to everyone of all abilities - from the experienced pro flier to the one just getting started and everyone in between. All shapes, all sizes, all ages, all kinds of kites. If you tether it and attempt to fly it.... you're in.
WHAT IS THE WFGKC? Probably the best question. First of all, this global challenge is like a DIY festival. It is a one day event. You can do it by yourself, do it as a group, do it with strangers. There are no restrictions on how you complete it, but the goal is to at some point on August 24th, 2019, you do something kite related. If you go to the bottom of this page you will see a list of ideas on what you can do as a part of the challenge.
WHERE IS THE WFGKC? Best part about this, it is wherever you want. Beach, mountains, in your living room, downtown, at an art gallery, off the back of a boat, on stage. Just nowhere illegal. Yah... there are a few places you shouldn't fly a kite because of regulations and we encourage you to avoid these areas.... like active runways. Each country has different rules, and we can't list them all here. Use some common sense.
HOW WILL THIS ALL WORK? It is actually pretty simple. You register right here. Once you receive your confirmation email, get to brainstorming. There are a few levels of registration from free to prize pack level, you can upgrade at any point, just let us know. By registering you are committing to doing something kite related and -we really want to emphasize this- sharing what you are doing on the day. More on that sharing thing is down below.
We will have more information soon all posted under the WFGKC tab....
