The wind has picked up and the weather is ripe. Let the soaring of the kites begin!

We are game - If someone has a location in Abq and a day time lets see what we can do.

Would love to bring some kites from southern NM depending on time & date. Will definitely be at the Edgewood festival May 2nd and 3rd.

Portales was a bit gusty, but a very nice time. We met lots of wonderful flyers and saw some awesome kites.

OK, here's another one, this time in Ruidoso, NM. (Don't mean to hijack the Albuquerque event scene. Actually looking forward to edgewood. Is there anybody out there?)

In general, where is a good place in Albuquerque to fly a kite? I live not far from Bullhead, but there always seems to be something going on there on the weekends. (Which is great!) But I don't want to trip over anyone, hit a power line or interfere with a soccer/softball game. Thanks!
