FYI, the name of the event has changed from the Velocity Games to the US Wind & Water Open.

Here are some other updates:

Podcast and live webcasting: May 10 we will podcast from the event opening night mixer and will also have live webcasting on May 11, 12 and 13th. Webcasting will feature event highlights and interviews. Check http://www.velocitygame.us or http://www.uswindandwateropen.com for the live action!

Skipper/Rider Meeting time change: if you plan on participating in the upcoming Vgames, the skipper meeting has been changed from 11a to 10a daily.

Opening night event: Additionally, there is an opening night event on Thursday, May 10 at the Omni Hotel for riders and event organizers. We will be emailing you shortly with all the info.

Finally, all kite participants will have to sign another liability release form, ,given the new name change from Velocity Games to US Open Wind and Water. Registration payment also needs to be collected. There will be a registration table in the lobby of the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel, Marina Tower, on Thursday May 10, from 8a to 5p.

Sounds like a tennis tournament collided with a yachting race! Who comes up with these names? My opinion doesn't matter, but the Velocity Games sounded a whole hella-of-lot better.

Not to be picky, but work your punctuation in the logo

U.S. would be correct: US. just looks like the name of a hipster zine written in the mission in SF. The logo is one thing not to be sloppy on.

Check the Etymology. US would be better than US. I tell ya.

Dang, I hate to be picky.

But, "US.", just isn't correct. Actually, it's very bad logo.

U.S.A or US are better, but US. ?

Ahhhhhh, my bad.


But, two of us thought the same, isn't it "perception is reality" or "deception is best" :)

My bad.............
