Sola 2014


Sola Drageklubb - Kitefestival in Norway on the 7th and 8th of June.
I know the secret recipe for a successful kite festival in Norway during 25 years:  Enthusiastic and motivated people over there; Working hard at the kite workshop on Saturday making more than 200 kites a day, Play and show the kites on Sunday. (and in the evening a beer or two).   I am looking forward to join them, to help them and to drink a beer with them!!
