Thanks for the folder Mike (adminman).

Well, it's about time to start thinking about next year. I'll start pulling together the list for next year over the next few weeks.

Thanks for all your effort, Steve.

One question: Is Chatham, Il, really on Monday, 9-25-2017?

I think I pulled that from the Chicago kite web site. I'll recheck tonight at home.

I checked - that's the date Chicago Kite has on their web site . . . . so not sure what to do about that. I leave it as-is for now.

I edited in the confirmed date for Fair in the Air and added the Pontiac festival. Updates to the Google calendarcoming soon-ish. are now loaded.

Maybe I will load some of them up on FB next . . . . .

Thanks!

Unfortunately, we just received word that Clear Lake / Color the Wind has been cancelled due to the ice melting, which means the flying field no longer exists . . . . .

Addition to the list - St Louis Gateway Kite Festival - April 22nd (with Indoor flying on 4/21) - Chesterfield, MO. I think I already had that one in the calendar, but I just got an email from Mitch Cordover with the Gateway Kite Club.
