Nice job Andy

Well winter has been cancelled in Michigan. ALL of the snow is gone as of last night. Maybe a cold front will blow through at the end of this week.
But not to be discouraged - MACkite will be hosting a demo and Christmas party this weekend. (We are all cranky and needed something to do).
Check out the line up of 2006 kites that will be available to fly - if you are interested in flat/bow kites make a point to come on up.
Here is the info:

Upcoming Demos:
January 7, Harbor Island Grand Haven- Flat Kite Round-up


I know it is kind of late notice however our next demo will be a good one. Saturday January 7, from 1pm till dark, we will be having a flat kite round up. We plan on having Cabrinha’s 12m Crossbow and 12m Switchblade kites, Slingshot’s 12m Turbo Diesel and The Naish 12m Shockwave all pumped up and ready to fly.

We will also have on hand the New 06 Naish 12m Torch, 7m and 10m Elements, Slingshot’s 14m Octane, Ozone 6m Access, and the HQ 5m Beamer. This will be a kite demo you don’t want to miss.

Best of all afterwards we will be heading back to MACkite for some free pizza and refreshments. We hope to have some new Dvd’s for the party and maybe if we are lucky Brad Knoth or Andy Bolt will bring some of their new footage. I guess we will have to ask nicely



12th Annual Reeds Lake Ice Fly
Saturday, January 21, 2006

On frozen Reed's Lake in Grand Rapids, MI Snowkiting, kiteskiing, kiteskating, and iceboating all will make an appearance at this annual kite festival. Join the fun or watch from the deck of Rose's Restaurant while enjoying FREE hot dogs, chips and hot cocoa, generously provided by Rose's. Inside Rose's kids can build their own FREE kites, compliments of MacKite.

Gear Demo, you asked for it! We will have all the latest gear for snowkiting and kitesurfing with us, including all of our flat kites and new Torch and possibly Raven kites.

Now we haven't forgotten about you guys in Lansing, we hope to get over there in february some time. I will keep you posted.

So I have been kicking this idea around for about 10 years (yes snowkiting has been going on that long). At first I dreamed of a racing series of snowkiting events. Reeds Lake (the event is still running - 11 years now), White Lake (1 year about 10 years ago) and Lake Macatawa (never happened).
Anyway this year it is going to happen! The format will be very "open" to allow organizers of events the freedom to do what they want. Below is a list of current dates and basic (yes they can change) rules. Any money,ideas, new events, money, or anything else you might like to see is welcomed. We want to make this very organizer and rider friendly. Here we go:

The Midwest Big Points Series (or better name when someone comes up with it)

January 21
11th annual Reeds Lake Ice Fly
Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Contact: steve@mackite.com
www.mackite.com


January 27,28 and 29
Polar Open Snow Kiteboarding Event
Gladwin, Michigan
Contact: kyle@detriotkiteboarding.com
www.kiteMI.com

February 18-20
Traverse City Event
Location and info to be annouced
Contact: dave@h2okiter.com


Here is my take on it or the first attempt at writing rules.

Each event can running any type of competition they want. Sliders,
freestyle, racing, best trick, bikini.
We don't really care. Each event can have up to 3 events to award points.
If no events happen, the organizer can give awards to those riders who
stepped up in any way the promoter felt was appropriate. i.e.. helped
people, tried to ride in no wind, etc.

BIG Points
10,000,000 for 1st place in an event
8,000,000 for 2nd
6,000,000 for 3rd
5,000,000 for 4th
4,000,000 for 5th
3,000,000 for 6th
2,000,000 for 7th
1,000,000 for 8th

I hope you now understand the idea of BIG points. (should we give out one hundred million instead?)

We add up all the points at the end of the year and declare the top overall
rider in Michigan.

Organizers are responsible for reporting the points to: (name of the
official director of the Michigan Big Points Snowkiting Series) Maybe we
can come up with a name the has a cool a Acronym - like EAT SNOW or POWDER
or heck I don't know. How about Mi Big P SS (insert vowel) AKA the yellow
snow series

Give out a trophy or some kind of really ridiculous thing to the winner.
Maybe we could plan a banquet at the last event (whenever that may be). Get
some schwag from a couple of companies.

Any one else have thoughts or ideas please email or post them.
