Spread the love, see you in Grand Haven!

OK, here is what I have from Mac Kites site

September 7-10 (Thursday - Sunday)

King of the Great Lakes Kitesurf Competition
September 7 - 10, 2006 (tentative)
At the State Park (the beach) in Grand Haven, MI
Anticipate seeing riders 15-30 feet
in the air and performing exciting
maneuvers like Double Board Passes
and 1080 Board Off Front Spins. For a
preview of the tricks you'll see, check
out the photos from this year's competition
here. This event is open to the public free of
charge, though parking in the State Park
is subject to standard park fees.

Here are two great sites if you don't want to stay in a Hotel for the event. I may change my reservations to a large house on Lake Michigan.

www.GreatRentals.com and www.vrbo.com

Just search on Grand Haven and you will find a ton of rental condos and houses.

See you in Grand Haven!

A double board pass is when you meet a girl at the bar with no boobs. You pass her off to a friend and he does not want her either. Double Board Pass!

Hello All,

Looking forward to a great weekend in Grand haven. I hope to see all of you there. I will be there Thursday morning. If you are competing, try to be there Thursday. If you can't attend Thursday, make sure you are there Friday as the forecast looks good for friday. If you are a non-competitor, we are planning on a festive evening on Thursday night as a warm up for Friday. If you can't make it, we will be planning another festive evening Friday night as a warm up for Saturday smile.gif ....

Bring smiles, good vibes and let's hope for a windy and fun weekend.

I got the dates wrong on the late register date. It was supposed to be Sunday as the last day for $25 but I thought it was Monday so if you registered on Monday and it showed $40, you will only be charged $25.

But now the early registration date has passed so now the registration is $40.

Sorry about the mix-up.

Lisa
