      Every February, Canada's Capital Region is host to Winterlude, North
      America's greatest winter festival. Three fun-filled weekends of
      excitement and activity await the whole family! From spectacular ice
      carvings to an amazing playground made of snow, Winterlude is a great
      way to take in the best of our Canadian winter.

      This year, the school Kitesurfingschool.org Ottawa (VL Kites) and the
      NCC has teamed up to organize a kite demonstration event for the closing
      week-end of the 2005 Winterlude. This is the world first large scale
      winter kite demonstration event for a very large number of non-kiter
      audiences, fully insured with $2,000,000 public liability insurance.
      Due to the large number of surrounding audiences, only instructors or
      riders with more than 3-year experiences were invited to ride in the event.

      The event was fully supported by the kite manufacturers and the kite
      magazines. Many kite manufacturers and magazines have contacted
      Kitesurfingschool.org, and in the end, BestKiteboarding
      (http://www.bestkiteboarding.com) sent 5 Tempest kites complete for the
      riders to use during the event (then to keep afterward), Loose
      (http://www.loose.it) sponsored 2 Patriot kites complete and SBC
      Kiteboard Magazine sent 50 copies to be distributed to the audiences.
      Many thanks to BestKiteboarding, Loose and SBC Kiteboard Magazine for
      recognizing the important of the Winterlude Kite Demonstration Event in
      the promotion of the sport and sponsoring the school as well as the riders.
