During WSIKF 2010
World Record Attempt
A team of Ray and Donna Hertz, Barry and Susan Tislow, and Russ and Diane Little will attempt to set a world record at WSIKF this year. They will attempt to put up and fly two hundred (200) 38” Toy Story box kites. The World Kite Museum has a record of 111 kites, but that was not substantiated by Guinness. The attempt will be made on Monday or Tuesday depending on the weather. Listen for an announcement.
MEGA REV FLY WORLD RECORD ATTEMPTSat, Aug 21 3:00pm : 3:30pm * Each attempt should be between 30-45 minutes in length from the time we start.
Team flying with Revolution quad line kites has become a global phenomenon over the past four years with large mega teams being organized at events all over the world. In 2008, during Revolution’s 20th anniversary, a new formation record was set in Bristol (UK) with a whopping 54 pilots.
This year at WSIKF, led by Team iQuad, teams are coming from all over the USA, Canada, UK, Australia and elsewhere to set a new world record in Long Beach, Washington. The goal is 100 kites and pilots, but a new world record will certainly be set with the largest single gathering of Revolution pilots ever assembled.
This event will take place south of Sid Snyder
While the general public is welcome to participate by joining in the learning activities all week and lofting their quad line kites into the air simultaneously during the attempts for a total mass ascension count, the actual formation attempts requires some degree of skill and will be limited to fliers with sufficient skills to do so safely.
