Can you hear it? It's getting closer...

WBB Fall 2019!

Update your calendars, book your room, grease the bearings and get ready for the best time you can have on a beach with your clothes on.
Only 41 days to go until we're back on the beach with friends, wind, kites and buggies.

For those that need a reminder, the Shalimar Resort Hotel is at: 800-956-6925 or 609-522-0609.

Howard of the top of your head....... how many seconds is it until you arrive. With minimal margin of error.

About 3.34 million, but it's getting closer every minute :wee:

I'm gonna have Ines with me (or is that: she'll be with us) for the whole week this time 'round. We'll be there on Sunday afternoon.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Larry And I will be there Monday thru Sunday! Can't wait to see my "other" family!

That's awesome Howard. I'll be there sun am-Friday nite. Looking forward to it. Had last year's dates and made Halloween party plans with my son for Saturday 19th so gotta be home.

Ed Cline - 9-7-2019 at 05:09 AM

So, Is there a list of of buggy conventions around the US ?
Never been to a meeting, someone who knows them all must have a list.
Probably published already, where to look?

There is an events section on main page of this forum with all of them listed though so you can find one you want to try out.

Hello all,

I am new to this sport. I visited WBB in the spring and I was hooked. I knew I wanted to be part of this. So, I just got my NAPKA membership and I am looking forward to WBB in a few weeks.

Special Thanks to Rich and Morrie for helping me with the NAPKA member ship.

Likely, as one of the newer WWB members, I'll be loudest in saying what an amazing group of people you'll find twice a year in Wildwood. Of course, I'll concur on what a rock star Cheezy is, for selfish and personal gratitude reasons, but also, everyone else too. If there are a more willing group of folks to spread the gospel of kiting and all of its exhilaration, frustration, physical and mental taxations, sheer joys and general #@%$#! talking of when stuff happens, I'd like to meet them. These guys and girls are a family. Come on, it's fun too!

Jack.Oh - 9-27-2019 at 07:50 AM

Got my NAPKA numbers setup yesterday!
