***MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!***

2017 PSKITE Fall/Halloween Fundraising Party on ***Saturday November 4th!***

Elliott Bay Brewing Company will host us once again for the annual Fall PSKITE Fundraiser and your local ambassadors have been working hard getting sponsors to supply once again an amazing set of raffle prizes!

You won’t believe what will be up for grabs!!! I’ll give you one hint … can you say ***MAGIC CARPET***?

I can hardly wait to announce what each sponsor so far has committed to donating, I guarantee you will be stoked! Sponsors will be announced on Thursday 10/12 so stay tuned!!!

This event needs to be put on your calendar asap, cancel all your other events that night, start picking out a Halloween costume... (optional), and stay tuned for details over the coming weeks!

Remember, this is not only a party to have fun together off the water but it is also a fundraiser to support programs such as wind sensors, future events and competitions (think Jetty Island Light Wind Olympics, etc.), hosting costs, etc.

Please invite your family and friends and share the event on Facebook and other social media often over the coming weeks! The more of a turnout, the better. New people are especially encouraged to come as this is an excellent forum to get to know others and learn more about the sport, see the passion, wind some awesome prizes, and feel the stoke!

Cheers!
Philipp (aka Stokemaster)

My wife and I may drive up from the coast for the party. She's asking me what kind of party it is? Do we dress up? Is there dancing? Also what about lodging nearby? Any recommendations on a nice hotel or a B&B nearby?

Still need convincing to come to the biggest PSKITE Kiteboarding Party of the year this Saturday? I bet not because all your old and new friends will be there and you want to have a great time!

But there are many other good reason!!! You may be taking home a brand-new 2017 Naish Motion 134x41 Kiteboard thanks to our friends at Naish Kiteboarding!!! Yes, that’s the same model board I’ve been riding the last few years and won a couple comps, it’s amazing!!! THANK YOU Naish USA for this Premium Prize donation worth $500.

What’s likely the most important kiteboarding gear you own? Correct, your harness!

Luckily Patrick Daniels with Ride Engine was able to hook us up with a brand new Size M Ride Engine harness with slider bar worth over $300 - http://www.rideengine.com. I will be putting my raffle ticket into that jar and so should you this Saturday Nov 4th at the *** 2017 PSKITE FALL / HALLOWEEN Party!!! ***

Not only is that harness the most comfortable one for your back, but it’s also easy to travel with due to its compact design. If you win it this Saturday, you hopefully also win a 3 day stay donated by Andy Holmes at one of his 2 condos in La Ventana, Mexico. Escape the Pacific NW doldrums and spend some time in La Ventana this winter and visit Darcie Gray or take a lesson from her!
Thanks Andy for your donation. See more details here

It’s been a busy week with kiting and getting things ready for the PSKite party and one thing worried me, who is going to be our MC since Sean Bold is not going to make it this year.

Well… I got things sorted out, so let me present to you one of our favorite OG kiters, Goiney, our ***2017 PSKITE Fall / Halloween Party MC***!!!

I am also super stoked that some of our awesome kitesistas, namely Roxana Poptamas, Roxana Madalina, Taylor Donovan, Penny Laine and Darcie Gray agreed to help out with the raffle. Goiney approves with a solid thumbs up! Look for these kick-ass waterladies when you arrive at the party and they will happily sell you tickets for the raffle!!! Bring cash!Thank you ladies!

See you on Saturday at 6 p.m. It’s Party Time!!!
