On the 16 of October 2010, a Spring Fair was held in Ashburton New Zealand, and Craig was asked to fly some kites for the crowds entertainment. Not only was the sun shining, but the wind was blowing. This all added up to make one fantastic day. At one point Craig, Debbie and Kirsty had 5 cuttlefish, an octopus and a ray, on one line underneath an 8 m pilot. For little old Ashburton it was a sight to see. Traffic were stopping and we had so many public asking questions and sitting having their lunch watching the kites.
Craig took a couple of buggies with him, hoping to give rides to the public, but with all the big kites, a lot of trees, and a cricket match being played about 20 feet away from us, it didnt happen. A local boy, Donan Ashby (ok he is my son….) managed to get his Impulse 3 up in the air and showed a few tricks to some of his friends, and a crowd of girls that appeared.
The wind disappeared about 4pm but the fair was still in full swing with singing, pony rides etc. We all had an awesome day and Id love to say a huge thank you to Ashburton on line who supplied the photos for us….we were to busy flying to take pictures.
