WFGKC 9.16.2020 Update

Two more days till I kick off the We Fly Global Kite Conference. Who knew that running a virtual kite conference would be so much work! I really am loving it and really looking forward to sharing the whole experience with you. Today and tomorrow I am heavily focused on working out the final little bits and bobbles, then settling in for the trip to the World Kite Museum in Long Beach, Washington, where I will be broadcasting from. The beauty of this whole event being virtual is that we can all be in different locations around the globe but easily come together and share this amazing experience in one 'place'!

Looking for the previous update? Check here:

T-shirts: Proceeds from this shirt will go to pay for the initial cost of running the conference, with additional proceeds being donated to the World Kite Museum in Long Beach, Washington. You can find out more about the World Kite Museum at Please note, in order to minimize overhead and time commitment, this shirt is being printed in batches and shipped in batches by Bonfire. Those that are in the first batch will receive their shirts between September 25-Oct 8th. You have 2 days left to order a shirt and be in the first batch.

So if you have a question let me know! Challenges: I hope you have had a chance to look at the challenges. Some of you have already entered into a few of the challenges, and it is absolutely amazing! If you didn't know about these, I highly encourage you to go and have a look. Make sure to submit your challenge submissions by the night of September 20th. For more information about the challenges check out: I have been blown away by the folks that have submitted challenges so far and I am working hard on some special awards to show my gratitude for you sharing your journey and being so willing to try this whole idea. The creativity is truly inspiring. Thank you for being so... well.. being so you! Facebook Event Page: I know not everyone is on Facebook, however, for those of you that are, there is a Facebook Event page dedicated to the We Fly Global Kite Conference and you can find it here: ____________________________________ I am happy to hear any thoughts or suggestions you have either before or after the conference on how to make this whole experience a better one. Don't be afraid to reach out to me. :) Don't forget to share that you are participating or attending! Use that #WFGKC hashtag when you post online. The more folks we get involved the merrier. As always, thank you for joining me on this journey, and I am so happy I get to share the 'digital kite field' with all of you!
