Florida Keys Downwinder

Postby RickI » Tue Nov 26, 2002 5:23 am

I just wanted to send out this reminder about the Keys Blowout kiteboarding event. IF the winds are right a mass run of kiteboarders will extend from Islamorada to Key West. If the wind is out of an unfavorable direction, no problem. A large expression session and free ride will be held off of Holiday Isle Hotel in Islamorada. So keep your fingers crossed for good winds. It should be a great get away and shred session in the Keys. Neals original message follows>

Hi all,
Just wanted to invite everyone, no mater what or who you fly for, or how
you ride, to an informal gathering in the Florida Keys Thanksgiving weekend
(Friday29th thru Sun1st). It will be held at Extreme Sports "Kite Beach",
Brads place at Rum Runners bar Islamarada. This will be a gathering of
kiteboarders from all over the USA and possibly the world for a weekend of
kiteboarding fun.
The plan is to have a large gathering of kiteboarders to enjoy the warm
Florida winds, a bunch of cold drinks, and good times together. As we all
know life can be short, let's all get together and live it to it's best!
We all plan to meet in the Keys Friday night for a welcome party at Rum
Runners and then all put on a show saturday, of the sport we love for the
many spectators that day. BUT if the wind is the right direction, we will be
doing a down winder from Islamarada to Key West starting at 8.30 am. This
will be a first, an event not to forget. Approx 80 miles through the Florida
keys, total flat water, crystal clear, a main road right there with taxi's,
videotographers, camera men and good friends having a session not to
forgotten for a long time to come.
Upon returning or not leaving our departure site there will be another
party that Saturday night and then returning home on the Sunday. WOW!!!!!!!!
This is an informal gathering, helping to promote our sport and for us to
enjoy what we all enjoy the most, not a contest, not sponsored, just US!
When you get this email please forward it to all your friends immediatly.
Any questions please call me personally : NEIL 954-647-7228 or
Look forward to seeing everyone shortly Neil.
