Around Our Town...Recreation Kite Fly


04/01/2005 - April is National Kite Fly Month. To celebrate, the Central Wyoming Kite Flyers will have their second annual fly, April 17 at the North Casper soccer field from 1 pm to 4 pm. The public is invited to enjoy this relaxing activity. Most people can fly a kite from 2 to a 102. All skill levels can fly some kind of a kite.

Kite flying is at least 3000 years old. Kites have been used in many ways: to move large, heavy items, in religion, in the military for hundreds of years, and in many types of sports.

Getting outside in the fresh, clean air with kite in hand is relaxing and enjoyable.

Frank and I have been flying for over twenty years. We have met dear friends and people from all over the world.

We went to a American Kite Association fly last October. We met up with old friends and made new ones. On the flying field I noticed a man flying his kite. I realized that he was blind, and watched him for a long tine. I later asked him how he knew what his kite was doing overhead. His reply was, "I just feel the breath of God and always know what it's doing". That was a very moving moment for me.

We were also introduced to indoor kite flying last year. No wind is permitted for indoor kite flying. We hope to find a place in Casper to try this new activity.

Last year the central Wyoming Kite Flyers Association was started. We are hopeful that others wil enjoy this hobby and sport....lots of good clean family fun.
