BAPA Kiting Camp - Saturday, October 6, 2012

Kiting camp and Site Intros, Vallejo, Saturday October 6, 2012

Coaching by Joel McMinn and Joe Cruz
Improve your ground handling = build safety and confidence in the air

10-2pm at Vallejo's DILLON kiting valley.  Two acres of grass, free of rocks cowflop and fences, caressed by smooth reliable marine breeze from the Carquinez straits.   Practice your kiting and forwards in all winds.  High wind kiting is especially fun here - no rocks or fences obstruct your drag  so "get up and try it again".  If less than 10mph sample the new Training slope.  Around noon we'll startup the Kiting wars - planning a ladder-type knockout competition for P1 P2 P3 and P4.   Overall winner gets a Sausage bag courtesy of Oxygen Paragliding.

Conditions permitting we'll spend the afternoon providing appropriate site intros of Benicia and Vallejo sites. 
Dillon, Channing (east & west) and Blue Rock.  Later - Applebees?

Bring shoes or boots with a good grip because brown grass is slippery.  Suggest water, hat, chair.

Check the message on 707-YOU-SOAR  day-before, morning-of, and throughout the day for changes or to catchup with participants.
