Sport Kite Rulebook

Available NOW!  Ten months in the making!  Longer, lower, wider!

At long last, the 56-page Third Edition of the International Sport Kite
Competition Rules is available.  We're no longer dating the book (e.g. "1993
Edition") and it should no longer be mislabeled the "STACK Rules".  Indeed,
STACK had input and approved the final draft, but the AKA Sport Kite
Committee wrote it, and we thought it less confusing to delete all references
in the title to the organizations that may use it.

Although there are no new figures, procedures have been clarified and the
book has been enlarged through the addition of more complete job
descriptions, field setup guidelines, and judging criteria.  Lots of sample
forms.

AKA member price US$5.00; non-members $7.50, both postage paid in US; add
US$2.00 for postage outside North America.  Quantity pricing above 5 copies,
plus shipping.  

I have lots and lots of them and will take these forms of
PRE-(please)-payment:  Visa/MasterCard, cash, check, or money order, payable
to AKA.  No Canadian cheques, plz.

That's good. It has been confusing to know, which edition is valid

When AKA starts using the Third Edition?

Have you sent the rule books to Europe (STACK) already, or would I
get mine faster if ordered from you?

Can AKA (or whoever has the copyright) consider publishing the
Rule Book in electronic form e.g. to rec.kites. I understand
this has economical effects, but it would greatly serve the mission
to unify the understanding of competition practices.

I don't know when the AKA will start using the the 3rd edition for
flying, but events in the USA have started. I know that the New York
Stunt Kite Championships (August 21 and 22) will use the 3rd edition
book.

The AKA is looking into electronic publishing in general. Financial
considerations will certainly play a part, as will other legalities
such as copyright.
