10/05/2009 - AKA Convention - Rochester, MN

The Minnesota Kite Society was the host club for the 32nd American Kiteflier's Association (AKA) National convention. The convention was in Rochester, MN,  October 5th-10th.

The convention was a success even though attendance was down from past years. The weather was a little harsh, but the good times had with kiting friends from all over the world was great.

Here are some links about the convention.
