I did not forget it on the second Sunday of October, but there was work of the community and at last was able to take time in the evening. However, wind does not blow as expected. The kite-flier gives it up, and I am sorry unwillingly, however, to have you make the kite of the frog with the international frog year this year. I put it together and made the miniature book of the frog of the Korean folktale. Tateki Tanimoto

Here is a report about the World Kite Day celebration in Moscow, Russia.
The weather in the middle of October usually is very unstable and rainy. There was a moist snow in Moscow on the OSOW day last year. ;) This year we (Prokite club www) decided to organize two events - a reserve-party on 4th October and the WKD itself on 12th October. Here are photos of the first event: -- photos of the World Kite Day celebration -- It really was a quite short under-rain flying session. But we are glad anyway that we did it!
To give you more information about Russian kiting activities I'd like to show you some photo galleries of our 6th Annual Colorful Sky Fall Festival: - vmishenko - alex.gornostaev - Motley sky - kosmopoisk - Regards, Boris Goussakov . Prokite club

We flew kites for peace at Dolphin Beach, Cape Town in a variable Southeast wind. We had a great time and urged everyone to work for peace for all mankind. Passers-by repaid our efforts with smiles!

Am Sonntag, dem 12.10, fanden sich in Wuppertal ca. 40 Leute zusammen, um OSOW zu zelebrieren.Es wurde jongliert, sich zugeprostet, geraucht und gechillt - nur Drachen flogen eher wenig wegen Windmangel.
Dafür wurde das Gelände, ein ehemaliger Truppenübungsplatz, exorziert - out, demons, out !

White Horse Kite Flyers once again gathered at Barbury castle for OSOW. The morning was blanketed with fog but by early afternoon there was a brilliant blue sky and 24 people flew a total of 191 kites.

see jim's web -

I hope that the OSOW events all went off as planned?
I was lucky to be invited to a little kite festival in the very North East of England, up on the moors in a place called Allendale. There were about 50 kiters all doing their thing at the highest kite festival in England.
Regards, Stephen

on 12 october we flew at one of the highspots in England at Allendale at a festival organised by John Dobson. It was a great event, the weather was fantastic, the views superb and john had laid on food and music too! we exhibited the banners made by 'kite friends' at Washington this year as many of them feature the same sky and friends around the world.
we thought of all of you too

We are very sad because the weather didn´t give us a hand. Sunday was horrible because of rain, so we decided to fly OSOW on Monday (non working day in Argentina) but it was awful too as Sunday. Can we fly OSOW next Sunday?
I hope you are OK. Best regards LAlo

Sunday, we were at the Commune Park in Varennes, Quebec for One Sky One World. A very good idea from the organization that is to mix the enviromantal aspect and human rights with very interesting spokepersons. As usual, we had a good time with Robert Trepanier ! It was great seeing old friends and meeting new ones ! - A few pictures .
Until next year... Christine & Daniel

Varennes. We had terrific weekend with sun and almost no wind, but we had two conferences. One on climats changes and the other on the evolution of humans rights. Many distingues guest honor our event and we brought hope to our community. Our sound was generated by clean energy.

Niquia >

Location: NIQUIA, a small town in Antioquia, near Medellin, in COLOMBIA, South America. 320 Sled Kites were given to kids (3 TO 15) and flown. The kites were made and the event was organized by members of the BOREAS Kite Club (mail) During the beautiful Colombian sunny afternoon a local DJ mentioned the purpose of the fly so that the kids took home a nice kite, a nice memory and a nice message. The local TV and the local newspaper recorded the event so that the message can be displayed again and again for people to remember. This is the second time we hold the event and it was so succesfull that we're sure we'll do it again next year. Hope you enjoy the pictures. - Andrès Ramìrez Valencia

Thanks, Glenn Davison
P.S. Today I sent a request for photos to FIVE kite clubs on the east coast!

We had very little wind, in fact zero. We managed to get one kite in the sky.... Hope you had better luck. No wind here, means more wind in the other part of the world... One world, one sky :)

Just spent the weekend at the Maple Ridge Kite Festival in Lowville, NY. Almost no wind both Saturday and Sunday. The kite organizer Thom Shanken got a golf cart and atv and used them to fly a pair of sutton 450's with 150 foot tails for the crowds. The side used to be a training grounds for horses and they used the race track to display the kites. - Jackie Maciel

Approximately 12 kite fliers flew at Parksville, BC Canada this afternoon. The winds were a bit bumpy, but the Sun shone for most of the day and there were many smiling faces. I loaded a few photos in the OSOW_2008 album.

Washington, Long Beach
"One Sky, One World" in Long Beach, WA is a two day event. "That's so we are sure to be flying with everyone in the world," the flyers claim.
Scientifically there's no proof; it's just to have more fun. This year 37 flyers brought their kite collections and more than 60 folks made the bird kite provided by the World Kite Museum and flew them.
Granadian, George Peters, brought heritage kites from his country. Their hummers filled the air with noise. The Museum also let flyers experiment with Styrofoam cups slit at a 90 degree angle into the bottom and up the side of the cup. This attached to the kite line helped magnify the sound of the kite line. Flapping banners and diving stunt kites added to the sights and sounds of the days.
