OSEK 2013 SPRING EVENTS SCHEDULE
- OK our web site went south and I havent got up to speed with the new software so here is the tentative OSEK 2013 spring schedule.
KITE WORKSHOP SCHEDULE
This is the main fund raising method for putting on the Cleveland International Kite Festival. In an average year, workshops are scheduled in parks, at schools, club meetings, and events.
We do not have sponsors paying for tents, park fees, sound systems, etc.
So if you have wondered how this works, call Bob Lockhart, Workshop Coordinator at 216-731-3639. It takes about 20 minutes to learn how to help a kid make a sled kite. After you've done five, you are an Expert, and we need more Experts!!
Call Bob Lockhart if you can help with the following:
