Whats different is the CGKA is no more and Pepi and company no longer lobby for kiters. So no one is lobbying for kiters. The new CGWWLGQBTLFMFG IS GONNA LOOK OUT FOR THEIR BASE, old git windsurfers.

I met with Bart this week. He is the new president of the CGWWA. I mentioned to him that Daryl from the port does not return my calls. He said she doesn't return his either. He is frustrated also with the lack of communication. In his defense he is becoming a positive advocate for kiters. He is very proactive in opening kite sites at Bingen and Dougs. We are doing the Doug's clean up this Saturday Oct 5th at 9am. He spearheaded the entire project and has huge pull with all of the various agencies that we have to wrangle with to accomplish these launch sights. We have so much more power now that we have combined the two associations. Moondog

John beat me to the punch here. Bart is spearheading the biggest kite launch project since the Stevenson launch improvement work. To me, this is strong evidence that the new CGWWA is taking all user's needs into account.

I think we are moving in the right direction.

Was just informed that the signs are going down and kite launch/land access is re-opening today or tomorrow.

Please remember to respect the launch and land zones as they are set up to help guide people launching and landing to be clear of each other and for inexperienced kiters to avoid launching too far upwind in the wind vortex/shadow.
