  8. Sandy Point Footy weekend

    until
    Footy Grandfinal long weekend 2017 at Sandy Point Vic The tide times are awesome for using the main beach this weekend so hopefully the wind gods will be kind and provide the right amount of wind, at the right time and in the right direction. This event is diferent to previous years so please read on: You will need to organise your own accomodation there will be no group booking of houses. You can contact the Sandy Point Caravan park on 9998 4462 or by email sandyphpark at bigpond.com. As of the 15th May they still had some sites. The advantage of this park is that it is straight accross the road from the beach and next to the shop for anything you forgot to bring. It was old but ok when we stayed a few years ago but can be crowded. Other options are Warratah Bay Caravan Park. As of the 15th May they had a handful of powered sites and plenty of unpowered sites or another caravan park a little further away such as Foster or Toora. Or get a group together and book your own house - try the local realestate agent or one of the common booking sites. It is up to you to decide where to stay and arrange it. There will be a group dinner out in Fish Creek on the Friday night at a venue to be confirmed. If you want to be included in the booking please reply in the Footy Grand Final thread with the number of people to be included in the booking. Weather permitting there will be a group BBQ on Saturday night at the BBQ's at the back of the community center (accross the road from the caravan park behind the shops and tennis courts). You will need to bring your own meat, drinks and something to share with everyone for example a salad or dessert. Closer to the date please post up what you are bringing so we don't get too many double ups. Hope to see you all there. Kathleen and Nigel

  13. Advertising on Extreme Kites

    Over the past year Extreme Kites has grown considerably, for the first time in a long time Land Kiting especially in Australia has started to see a small resurgence and growth. The aim of Extreme Kites is to give kiters a place online to share their knowledge, experience and socialise online which we hope in turn leads to people building friendships. We've found the more people we reach via the website and welcome in to our community the more these individuals become our friends and meet us on a beach. Last year I completely changed platforms for the website to set ourselves up to be able to grow the community, this resulted in John Holgate taking over as Community Administrator which has given me free time to focus on site development in my spare time, the results have been incredibly positive. With the new website and amazing contributions from our community members we've arrested the overall decline in kiting numbers in many of our groups simply through a growth of interest. We now have some more plans in the pipeline, some new features that I have been working on over the past six months which we hope will create a larger knowledge pool, a more valuable resource and a continued growth of interest leading to more friends with kites flying with us. Up until this point the costs of hosting Extreme Kites, Software Licensing, Prizes and Giveaways (with exception to the first competition) have all been funded from my pocket. This area of our costs over the next few years I can't really see changing, however to implement the new features planned now requires Extreme Kites to commit to spending money on a monthly basis. It's not a huge amount of money, however it is a considerable monthly amount and my plan has always been to see Extreme Kites sustain itself so that if ever in the future I completely move on the current group of Administrators at that time can continue to operate a self-sustainable website. The finance needed to bring these new features to life and sustain the viability of funding those features is a step in this direction. These changes aren't about to deface the website and turn the whole place in to a flashing disco of distractions I'll be placing advertising in the right sidebar, and three sections in the main body of the website. Unlike some websites charging upwards of $550 to $750 a banner, we'll be pricing them at $49/month. The banners will be small in filesize so we don't slow down general page loads. For those vehemently against seeing banners we'll offer a membership level for a couple of dollars a month that strips the advertisements, or alternatively just use a free adblocker (which many do already). If you're a Store Owner, Manufacturer or someone looking to advertise you can purchase a banner location, upload your artwork and publish it all through our Webstore located here.

  18. This is KINGSTON

    Each year I make it a goal to visit one of Australia's premier Land Kiting destinations, Kingston SE. This marked my 7th year visiting Kingston, nowhere near the 20+ @The Duke and @AliNev have been going. Each year I go to experience the one thing I can't find here at home, and that's a dry lake/claypan. Kingston is an amazing place, over the years I have collected some amazing footage. This video I've choosen to focus on claypan and why I travel to Kingston for it each year. Please turn your speakers up as loud as they can go...
