Blowout postponed, again
The Blowout downwind kite/windsurfing race has again been postponed due to uncooperative wind conditions on race day; it is now scheduled for Aug. 16. The event – newly reworked as a combination kiteboarding and windsurfing race by organizers of the Bridge of the Gods Kite Fest – was originally scheduled for July 27, but had to be rescheduled due to lack of wind. The rescheduled date was Sunday, but again wind did not cooperate. Organizers are hoping the third time is the charm, but if not, the race will be held on the next possible day after Aug. 16. Registration opens at 9 a.m. race day. For up-to-date info, see www.nwkite.com.
