Let’s go fly a kite (fourth Sunday of the month)

August 20, 2008

After a July hiatus, the Gateway Kite Club is back in action this coming Sunday (Aug. 24) in Forest Park. According to the secretary, Donna Houchins, the summer doldrums tend to be miserable kite-flying weather — but since the heat hasn’t hit hard this year, she and her fellow enthusiasts have no doubt enjoyed the summer immensely.

Members have a range of skill levels and welcome questions (as I discovered during my e-mail correspondence with Donna). You can also just bring a blanket, lie back and marvel at the magical way the kites play in the wind. What better way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon?

The club will be at its usual spot, Central Field near the Jewel Box, starting at 1 p.m. If you can’t make it this Sunday, check the online schedule for other dates and locations.
