[Cleveland] The Ohio Society for the Elevation of Kites was founded in 1977 by a group of kite enthusiasts. Although the club structure remains informal, we elect officers to organize and oversee activities. Our main purpose is to encourage new kite flyers, share ideas, knowledge, experience, building and flying tips, and to have fun. Members range from eight to eighty-five. Anyone who enjoys the magic of kites is welcome to fly with us whether you are a member or not. Members of OSEK live in Columbus, Wooster, Medina, Youngstown, Mentor, Solon, Cleveland, Akron, Massillon, Canton, and small towns between! O.S.E.K. members have competed and participated in kiting on local, national, and even international levels.
COME FLY WITH US!
O.S.E.K. offers kite building workshops for area schools, clubs and groups. We present talks and demonstrations. We paint the sky with kites for park systems, community celebrations, and at the Cleveland Kite Festival in September. We also have our annual club members only “FLEXI FOOL Competition and Birthday picnic”. In April, National Kite Month, we can be found at the Youngstown Kite Festival, Medina Metro Parks Earth Day, Parkman Township Kite Day, and other places, as scheduled.
All requests for participation (workshops, demos, displays, kite flying) are presented to the members at next possible meeting and voted on. Due to an increase in requests and the limited number of volunteer members available, we regret we can’t cover them all.
At our monthly “free fly”, O.S.E.K. members share ideas, fly our kites, and socialize. We also hold brief, informal field meetings for business needs. Attendance is greater from April to September than during the winter months. Two Special meetings are held to discuss club business, one in March, which includes our annual Auction and election of officers, and the other in November.
