posted Jul 19, 2013, 5:50 AM by Dean Murray
Saturday, July 20th is going to be great!  We're going to be making some Fighter Kites in the morning, then we've got a fun fly at Sandburg Middle School.  You don't have to just bring fighter kites to the fun fly, just bring whatever you would like to fly and have fun.

The weather is supposed to be great this weekend and the temps are forecast in the seventies. Further evidence that kite flying is cooooool.
