5309Winterlude 2006 Kite Demo Report
- Feb 14 5:26 AMFollowing the success of the 2005 Winterlude Kite Demonstration event,
the school Kitesurfingschool.org Ottawa (VL Kites) and the NCC again
teamed up to organize a kite demonstration event for Winterlude 2006 on
Feb 11 and 12. Again, 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 main objectives of the event are to:

2. Promote kiting to a very large group of non-kiters (650,000+)
3. Make kiting a legitimate and official sport.
The event was fully supported by the kite manufacturers and the kite
