TISKC Wrap-Up: I realize I'm a little late in getting this message out, but I wanted to let everyone know that scores from TISKC ( have been posted to the Eastern League website, and league standings have been updated.  If you didn't make it to Treasure Island last month, you missed a couple of wonderful days on the beach with warm, sunny weather and a great crowd of spectators.  Personally, I'd like to extend my thanks to our raffle sponsors Flying Smiles Kites (  (mini rev banners, won by Bob Matteo), Into the Wind (  (a Paul de Bakker Skate won by Rich Comras), and Sturdy Designs (  (a red Saber III, won by Brian Bishop).  Events like TISKC are made possible by the generous support of our sponsors.  I'd also like to thank Maggie Engvall for serving as our chief judge, and Terry Murray & Janis Worth for all their efforts, all weekend long to keep the
Kitebus going and the field filled with music & plenty of info for spectators.  And I'd especially like to thank Joe Fala & everyone at Windworks (  for hosting the festival and giving us all a place to play for the weekend.  We are also happy to welcome "Bucky" Buchanan from Maryland to the Eastern League; as a first-time competitor at TISKC, Bucky was granted one year of complimentary Eastern League membership!

Ocean City: As of today, February 10th, signups for the Mid-Atlantic Sport Kite Championships ( (MASKC) are open!  Returning to Ocean City, Maryland on April 27-28th, 2013, it's time to start making your plans to attend this fantastic event!  Register to compete before April 1st, and pay just $40 for unlimited disciplines!  Complete details, schedules and figures ( are posted on the Eastern League website.

Wildwood: I'm also pleased to make the first announcement about the 2013 East Coast Sport Kite Championships at Wildwood!  Details are still being finalized, so I'll have more to share in the coming weeks, but the first big announcement is that Will Smoot has agreed to be our chief judge this year.  Plan to join us in Wildwood, New Jersey May 25-27th, 2013 for the 28th Wildwoods International Kite Festival.  For those of you who fly indoors, this three-day festival could likely be the last chance to qualify for the AKA Grand Nationals in Seaside, Oregon, so don't miss it!  More details on ECSKC and WIKF will be sent by email and posted to the Eastern League website as they become available, so stay tuned!

Blossom Kite Festival: This one isn't specifically Eastern League news, but Paul LaMasters asked me to pass along a quick announcement regarding the Kite Makers Competition at the Blossom Kite Festival (March 30th in Washington, DC): this year's grand prize in the competition is Airfare for Two on Turkish Airlines, to any of the 200 destinations they service via Istanbul.  I know we have a few accomplished kite builders in the league, if you'd like further information on this competition, drop me an email at ( for all the details.
