    I plan to be at the Derby both days and will have the newest 2007 Sonic kites from Globerider Kiteboarding available for demo to experienced kite riders. The new GK Sonics are the most technically advanced and safest inflatable kites on the planet. Come on out and take a ride — see for yourself how Sonics can make you a better and more confident rider!

    Looking forward to a great event, somebody bring some hot chocolate!!
