Toronto Kite Flyers Club returns to the Granite Golf Club

So I played a little hooky today from the usual Sunday chores and client work I was supposed to be doing and headed out to support my kiting friends at the Toronto Kite Flyers club. I dusted off one of my kites and headed off to the Granite Golf Club to fill the skies with our kites.

The Granite Golf Club is a beautiful private club located in Stouffville, Ontario. Its very close to the Heritage train which runs out of Stouffville.

Last year for their 10th anniversary, the kite club was invited to provide a kiting backdrop in the skies to their event. They liked us enough to ask us back this year. Some images of last year's event can be found here

As the winds were not co-operating with my flying skills, I got out my camera to capture a few moments:

The 3 man Rev team paints the sky blue and green

The Flowforms are large inflatable kites that are frame-less and are great lifters but you have to start them off by filling the cells with air first.

Once air born - their long tails fills the sky.

Mr & Mrs bubbles also made an appearance near the end of the day.

The kids were well entertained

And of course, the winds picked up as the event comes to a close.

Red Carpet Gala by Cadence Dance Academy

I don't know what it is about May & June but many of the dance companies I deal with hold their events during these 2 months and I get backed up like the DVP during rush hour. To tie things over till I can caught up - here is a sneak peak of images from this event.

This event occurred on May 21, 2011 @ 99 Sudbury, hosted by Cadence Dance Academy. This was the 2nd anniversary of this event and it promised "a whole new level of fun and sophistication for one night only."

If you didn't make it for this event - you missed a great Saturday night outing, but don't worry there is always next year:-)

There really was a Red Carpet at this event.

Headline sponsor - Chobeauty

Complimentary champagne at the door

Complimentary gift bags

Complimentary beauty lounge with stylists to do your hair & make up sponsored by Moroccan Oil and

Great people to party the night away - can you spot Miss Universe Canada 2010 - Elena Semikina?
