Last year we had about 40 riders and I think this year we will have around 50-75.

MacKite will be hosting a kiter cross. One timed run to determine heats and then 4 person heats. There will be 2 jump or go around obstacles with one go under obstacle. Helmets are mandatory.
Mike and Kevin Steen of Ozone kites will be bringing a couple of rails and sliders.
Eric Thompson (Ozone/Cabrinha rep) will be there to host mad river sled races for the new fliers.
Demo kites will be available to fly.

FREE hot dogs and hot chocolate on the deck at Roses.
FREE kite building for little kids - let's start them small.
Great food all day at Roses.

We look forward to seeing some of you out this way.

This is one of the most enjoyable events I have ever been to. Amazing Camaraderie between Experienced riders and newbies. If you have not been snowkiting and want to give it a try, this is a great event.

My favorite part is having a warming hut that serves great food (Rose's restaurant) and having free hot dogs and hot chocolate helps too smile.gif
