Eighteen years ago, Nelson Borelli from Woodstock, Illinois, designed a new indoor kite that became known as the "Borelli Glider". The Glider is basically a large fighter; a very light, versatile, gracious, easy to make-easy to fly kite with "built in" maneuvers that pilots can use to better interpret the music with their kites and bodies. Nelson will be offering a workshop to the public at a charge of $10 per kite.

Ronda Brewer a Lincoln City local, became involved in kiting in 1985. She has been invited to countless events throughout the country to fly her kites, run events, judge kite makers' competitions, or teach classes on kite building, knot tying, kite flying, rokkaku kite and battle techniques. Additionally, her skills at teaching and leading children in kite making have made her a favorite attraction at festivals all around the country.
