share the joy of kites
AKA held its 43rd National Convention October 10-15, 2022, in Ocean City, Maryland. Full of sunshine and fun, it was a grand time: it was just wonderful to see new and old friends. Here are some initial results; more results will be posted as they become available.
COME FLY WITH US
Flying kites is an uplifting event! Kites can be a hobby, sport, art, science project, or social event – sometimes all at the same time. Kites are fun to fly and beautiful to watch. Kite flying is a great activity for children of all ages. There is a real sense of freedom transcending borders when you fly. Flying kites crosses cultures, generations, age groups, social groups, and nations.
Kite flying is a wonderful and peaceful pastime. Kiting is for everyone — whether you’re a child who just built your first kite out of newspaper and twigs or a competitive sport kite flier who spends every available minute practicing your craft. We all share the same love of kite flying.
