Before the New Years Day Fly there is the New Years Eve Day Fighter Kite Challenge.
_We have two classes of competition:
_The Club Class where everyone flies the same style of kite, which changes every year. _This year we flew Fusion Fighters.
_Second is the Open class where everyone flies their favorite fighter kite.
_This year we had a beautiful afternoon with good winds for kite flying. You should have been there!

New Years Day 2016 Annual Kite Fly
_If you missed this years fly you missed a good one.
_It was warm, sunny, and good winds started up about lunch time which gave everyone time to wake up before flying.
_We had a pretty good crowd with old faces, new faces, hometown and out of town faces.
_We had a great Pot Luck Lunch.
_We had lots of flying and Yacking.
_We made Frustrationless Flyers for Kids and Bubble Wrap Jelly Fish kites for the adults.
_If you weren’t there we assume you had a good reason but shame on you.
The adults (well some at least) made Bubble Wrap Jelly Fish Kites. More Photos Here!
_So what was missing? You! Maybe next year.
