- Shalom, Yesterday, 21 oct, the OSOW event took place in Israel. We did it on this day because it was more suitable to the Jewish and Arab holidays. Kids from Kafr Meiser and Kibbutz Metzer made kites and flew them together as part of the One Sky One World events.

SOUTHAFRICA Here in Cape Town we flew for peace and passers-by enjoyed the show.. Children were encouraged to play with the ground toys and enjoy themselves.

(Lalo Loescher, Argentina): I invite you to know a special kite team, a group of young men that loves sport kiteflying a lot, even they have little possibilities of good materials to make their kites.
They are from Cuba and you probably know how hard things could be in Cuba. I pray you to read the whole interview in Kitelife Magazine last issue and do not forget to drop these charm guys a mail. They are anxious of new friends from all countries. They will have for the first time in Cuba a stunt kites competition this Saturday and they will continue demostrations on Sunday because of OSOW 2005.

We arrived to San Antonio de los Baños City (SW from La Habana) at 9:00 o'clock. It was a sunny day.
Wind: None. At 11:00 o'clock wind begun to blow a breeze of 10 km/h, students from the school of Cinema arrived and they begun to rise the lightest static kites. Then, with blasts a little stronger from time to time, we attempted to fly in team; it was not a complete failure but the results were not the best.
A piñata was coupled to a Rokkaku; this made the delights of the children. A little competition with acrobatic kites is carried out and all the people enjoyed it a lot. We conclude the day's activity with a deep burn because of the sun and with desires that next year wind will blow higher.

- Denver OSOW site - we were unfortunately rained out about 1 PM. For Denver this was the first time in 20 years. The infamous George Peters that attended the event said "it must be another kitefly". Apparently he attends kite festivals all over the world and encounters rain quite frequently. The tribute and 12:00 pm festivities are always the momentuous part of the day, with blessings and a 400 peace bird release. We were fortunate to at least be able to conduct this ceremony and send special blessings and good wishes out to our world wide community. --
