Mumbai - Bombay 'OSOW - Kites for Peace' - kite making workshops with street children on 9th, 10 and 11th. More than 300 children who'd participated in the workshops turned up to fly their kites with us on the 12th. Plus we had plenty of Indian fighter kites and lines available at the venue for people who wanted to fly - two live student bands who played through the fly - the singer suddenly had everyone chanting: "Well I woke up in the morning and I got myself a Kite!" - Much TV, press, big crowds and - best of all - a lot of college kids who discovered kites!

Cape Town - We flew in the name of peace on a hot cloudy day at Dolphin Beach on the
Table Bay reknown for Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for many years. ... Many other kites were in evidence all along the coastline - all flying for peace. Those who did not know of OSOW still had peace flying their kites. Best wishes from Cape Town, South Africa. Brian

Here in Israel during Sukkot holiday, the Gilboa municipality has run a one day kite festival, called the Korchak festival. It has been running for more than 20 years. Jan Korchak was a Polish non-Jew who worked in an institution for orphans in Poland. He chose to go to the concentration camp with his students, where he and all his students perished. He spent several months in the Gilboa area on a kibbutz in the '20's or 30's. He taught the orphans in Poland to sail as a 'therapeutic educational ' activity. Since there was no body of water to teach sailing to the kibbutz children he taught kiteflying. The kibbutz continued the tradition of kiteflying, till the municipality took it over and created the once yearly festival. I'm sure that if Korchak were alive today he would encourage
events like OSOW.
I plan to go out flying tomorrow, the wind be willing. So if you are in the Galilee, and are passing Hatzor look up the hill [ Biblical Mt. Cananaan} and perhaps you'll see a lone fighter or stunter in the sky celebrating One Sky One World. All the best- Joe

From Rick Longhurst, Essex Kiteflyers, Ontario,Canada:
This year 2003, the Essex Kiteflyers held their 2nd annual OSOW fly -
CoAn Park in McGregor Ontario Canada. - [42.09.N + 82.58.W]
"Kites.........A Natural High" >

From Pierre Gregorie, Montreal, Canada:
OSOW (One Sky One World) the last major kiting event of 2003, this weekend in the Montreal, Quebec area, We'll be doing some skills demo's for the public (we expect over 5000), the pasting skill and probably a new skill I've been working on, which I call LIMBO. LIMBO mimicks bottom points, a line is pulled between two fixed points and you have to fly your kite under the line. The line is pulled down, only fliers that have successfully completed the previous height get to play. - - - feedback ??????

From Dennis Ische, Ontario,Canada
the K-W wind Climbers are doing just that and I am the contact person for the fly. Forecast is 60% chance of showers so we will be a bit damp after it all! The sky will be lit up with colours on even a rainy day!
Peace to all! - - - feedback ??????
