Hello indoor flyers,

We have the dates for the rest of 2017.   All dates and times are listed on the calendar.

The suggested donation is $100. Last year some opted to pay only $10/night and you can still do that if you need. Please consider paying the entire amount so we can afford to keep flying at this wonderful facility. As usual, if you fly RC, you will need to be a current AMA member to complete your AIM membership. You can start the process now by visiting the AIM Membership Request page: http://www.emf.club/?page_id=4493 or by bringing your AMA membership card and a check, or cash, to the next flying session. Kite flyers do not need AMA. You are strongly encouraged to pay by using our PayPal form at: http://www.emf.club/?page_id=4493. The form will let you pay using your PayPal account or your credit card.

Ocean Beach Kite Festival 2017

Saturday, May 13, Dusty Rhodes Park, 1000 – 1600 , Map If You Need It

Turns out this is on kite club day again this year, standby for alternate plans for the meeting

This the 69th edition (I think) of the OB Kite Festival and is billed as the oldest continuous kids festival in the nation. SDKC and the Kiwanis have been working together again for the last couple of years after a lay off of several years.

Come on out and show off your stuff, do some kite wrangling for the ‘civilians’ and help support kiting in San Diego in general.

Recommend you get there early, parking is tight!
