National on the American Kite Circuit.
New this year will be THE MAGICAL MYSTERY MIXED PAIRS TAPE TOUR! This is
an open event with a cost of $15 per pilot to enter. Each pilot will go on
the field and fly a ballet to a mystery song with a mystery partner. In
other words no one will have a clue. It is a true test of a pilots
creative abilities and we should get to see some great flying and have
many laughs. The first five places in the event will receive cash money
depending on the size of the registration for the event.
