We play a major part in the Festival of Winds at Bondi and 2013 will mark our 35th Year. It is official that
this festival is currently ranked 4th best event in Sydney after the
official New Year's Eve Fireworks and Party, the Mardi Gras and the
Sculptures by the Sea. This is a great honour. We are planning to have a
teddy bear drop where members of the public can sponsor a bear, and the
person who sponsors the bear which lands the closest to the
predetermined target will win a kite. It is hoped that this planned
initiative will increase crowd attendance and also add to our
Our theme for the 35th Festival of the Winds is love of kiting, healthy living choices and cancer awareness. Let's make this the best festival ever. Members past and present are needed to fly and be interviewed on the day. Hope to see you all. New members are welcome.
