Requirements:

All presentations are done indoors.  Prior to each presentation I set up a display of kites providing an interesting and colorful background.  I include examples of the many different styles of kites that are flown worldwide. One hour of setup time is required for best results.  High ceilings such as those found in a gymnasium, cafeteria, or auditorium are great when they are available.  Ages 8 to 108 are preferred.  Contact me to discuss fees.
