    Snowkiting VIC 2017

    Really excited about snowkiting this winter, Last year i had a broken shoulder and new born son, so this year im doing double to make up for my lack of riding in 2016. In Preperation:- My wife and work have been informed of my plans to ride lots. I have purchased seasons and resort access passes for Falls creek (because conditions can never be counted on). Lodge bookings have been made, with flexibility. Lots of good deeds and Karma points, which will hopefully be exchanged for great conditions. Share the stoke, so please make yourself known if you plan on riding Falls, post your trip details, photos etc. Enjoy, Karl Lapwood. 2013 snowkite.bmp
  2. I've gone through and looked at the Autumn tides for Waratah Bay, spotting the best days available for us to land kite. We can either do day trips down there, or quick over-nighters staying in the Waratah Bay Caravan Park. Subscribe/Follow this topic to keep up to date etc.

    Sandy Point Christmas Run

    We're hitting the beach for Christmas. Come join us on a Sandy Point day trip this Monday! Meet at the carpark 11:00am.
  7. Nigel and I are meeting at BP around 11am for a couple of hours to rig up, briefly test fly and photograph some new kites and make sure they're setup correctly before going off for review. Anyone is welcome to come toy around with some gear I'll have with me.
  8. I'm just wondering if any of you fine gentlemen are free from work encumbrances this coming week? I have Wednesday and Thursday free and the wind forecast looks pretty promising. Assuming the rain stays away, there might be a chance of getting out on the buggy. Failing that I was thinking of maybe attending the Energy Storage Council Conference at Jeff's Shed on one of those days https://www.energystorage.org.au/event/energy-storage-council-conference/ Anyone interested?

    Sunday 15th @ 13th Beach

    Was originally planning a trip to Box Hill for some lens buying, but some machinery replacement costs have killed that idea. However, Sunday's low tide is really low for 13th (.11m) at 12.46pm so maybe a trip to 13th? Moderate southerlys predicted. What say ye?
  10. Rosebud Kite Festival is running over the Labour Day Weekend, seeing as we are making the trip to Sandy Point before Labour Day then perhaps a trip to this years festival for some of us may be of interest. The festival runs on Sunday 8th March, from 11am to 5pm. More info can be found at http://rosebudkitefestival.com.au

Hi Guys, I'm looking at the tides for Labour Day 2015, and they're not flash! Alternatively, push it forward to run over Easter instead perhaps for an extended stay? It'll collide with Yeppoon and the Adelaide International Kite Festival, however for those that don't travel interstate for those events anyway it's a non-issue. Share / Discuss thoughts... Also lookout towards the end of the month, i'll get a summery out regarding the meeting from Sandy Point regarding the new club once I get some time to finalise a few more items/updates for that email out.

    GKC windup - VKA?

    As many know, I wound up my retail kite business in Geelong earlier this year. I am now finally getting around to following up on the kite club (as the registered 'public officer' and treasurer, I am still getting bank statements and requests for annual statements to consumer affairs). I emailed Joel twice in 2012 (6/10 and 15/10) to try and complete the cancellation process but received no reply. It seems the creation of the VKA has stalled / gone nowhere, but this unfortunately raises issues as to how the funds of the GKC was spent. As a club that was there for the benefit of members (many of whom are on this forum); I think it is appropriate for this to be discussed and sorted out in a transparent manner. 1) In order to cancel the registration of the club we need to complete a form (PDF form here) This form needs 2 committee members to fill in and sign, and requires a number of documents as you can see on page 2: A special resolution regarding distribution of assets, and a receipt from the recipient of those assets. There are a number of cheques that were written and cashed by Joel (correct me please if that is wrong) but which need to be accounted for (with receipts). I have never had a problem with these funds being used for the creation of the VKA; but as mentioned above, nothing whatsoever has happened? Chq 359 $149.95 (banked 24/06/11) Chq 360 $148.50 (banked 24/06/11) Chq 213 $1,300.00 (banked 24/11/11) 2) We need to close the bank account (current account balance $85.88). It was never up to me what was to happen with these funds, but I would suggest that members request that either the VKA is created using these funds (which was the vote at the final GKC meeting), or they are returned to the GKC for distribution (donation) to another club or organisation. I see there's another Sandy Point fly happening this weekend; perhaps a good opportunity to get something happening, or discussion there-of. In good faith. Goshen

    Sat 20th 13th Beach

    Spent Friday arvo at 13th beach - in good nic and even though it's not a really low tide, still easily managed a couple hours on it. Sat's forecast is a 12 knot southerly (pretty similar to today's (fri)). Wasn't really thinking of another trip down so soon but the forecast does look a little tempting. What say ye?

    13th Beach Fathers Day Run

    Low tides between 1 and 2:30 pm for coming week end and light onshore winds, so why not have a Fathers Day land kite session at 13th Beach? Do we need an excuse? Zac (Son) and I (Dad) will be heading out on the Sunday to 13th beach after a breakfast (translate, a long breakfast) with kites and landboards (perhaps even the gliders). Winds are light, will keep an eye on the weather to see if Saturday is more suitable. But gunning for Sunday at the moment. None Dads welcome as well. . Regards, Norman.
