Kite Expo was big last year.... great job....but...
Everything was too crowded out. It would be great to give the whole event more room.
There were a couple of kites I wanted to try, but the launch would have been too scketchy and unsafe.
I think it's really important for these events (especially yours that is growing so well) to help set the standard for safety.
Would also help to set aside an area for the pros to do their thing without people testing kites
close to them. Also consider this...it's pretty hard to test a kite and get a feel for it if pro kiters are flying over your head
With so many kites to try the differences are smaller and smaller.
Just a couple of ideas.
Best of luck for this years event.... I'll be there and spread the word around here.
