We always feel a bit of a rush in August at Goodwinds – kiteflying demand for carbon, fiberglass, and line goes sky high, LARPers are making boffers and holding retreats, and industry demand for carbon fiber rods and tubes keeps up at a strong pace (carbon is awesome stuff!). To top it off, Paul and Derrick took some well deserved vacation time in the heat of the summer. Of course, Paul might have called his vacation “work,” inasmuch as flying to Bogota, Columbia and Dieppe, Canada within a week, returning to Goodwinds for a day or two, and then driving to Long Beach, Washington for the weekend can be called “work.” You see, the whole time, Paul was flying kites. And winning medals! Check out his performace and the indoor competition of the Washington State International Kite Festival:
Nice job, Paul!
As we head into September, we’re looking forward to a busy month with a full crew. That is, until we start sending them the American Kitefliers Association’s national championships in Seaside and the iHobby Expo in Chicago, both in October. Phew!
