GREAT NEWS! Very happy to hear! It was starting to get all too 'serious' there for a minute. Leave the serious Olympic stuff and politics to the other sports.
..and there goes the sales uptake on raceboards! Seriously, I too am dissapointed to hear this, i know a lot of folks were gearing up for the event.
Not necessarily, I think kite racing will continue to boom. In fact I think it will do better now that people know that there aren't going to be a bunch of boof-heads taking every race so seriously. I am not talking about the few that are really talented and exceptionally good, I'm sure you know the kinds of people I mean.
I am going to buy a race board in January ready for our next kiting season. My initial comment does sound a bit inconsiderate to those good people that had their hopes up, so to them, my condolences.
