The Archives

Welcome to the San Diego Kite Club Archives

Hopefully this is just the start of a repository for some of SDKC’s history.

As of today, 27 Decmeber 2015, I think we have a pretty good Archive going but we could still use more of your old photos!

If you want this archive to grow it will require your input.

So gather up your old photos and get them to the WebApprentice for inclusion here.

We are looking for photos from the Dark Ages, the Middle Ages, the Not So Long Ago Ages, or even the Present Day. Anything not already included somewhere on this website. Any info you can provide about submitted photos would be helpful but if you don’t know what they are we will probably post them anyway.

Photos can be digital on disk or email or old fashioned hard copies (bring them to a meeting or by snail mail – address on request). All physical media will be returned.
