Kite Event Planning Guide
There are some basic requirements when planning a successful kite event for children only or involving a “professional” kite flier’s display as part of the event.
These hazards are generally managed by separating the display kites from the public. If that is not possible then the number of kites flown in the display will be reduced to minimise the risk.
Do not get locked in to making a diamond kite. There are many other easy to make designs that will fly better than a diamond kite. Do an internet search for children’s kite plans – a sled is a particularly good flier.
Alternatively, get a kitset from Julie Adams at www.kites.co.nz/schools.htm
or from Robert van Weers at www.softkites.com
