Chapman Cultural Center launched a community-wide initiative in Spring 2014 called Spartanburg Soaring! to build civic pride, promote healthy outdoor play, and celebrate cultural diversity and creativity. Every year, the festival grows, and so does our need for kite repair volunteers.
Join kite expert, Chuck Holmes, as he teaches volunteers how to repair and mend kites. After learning how to repair kites, participants will be able to assist kite flyers during The Soaring! Festival.
The training will include some general information about flying kites. It will also include specific information about each kite type of kite and include:
•how to assemble each type of kite
•proper way to attach the string
•how to launch a kite
•adjustments to be made to kites depending on conditions
•when to refer the kite patient to a kite doctor (we will have a few kite doctors who are specialists and they will be supplied and trained by the kite club)
