January 19-20th - Kite Skiing at Elmhirst Resort

Elmhirst’s Resort, near Keene, is holding a Kite Skiing weekend January 19-20th.  The cost for anyone wishing to try out the sport is $20 (equipment and instruction provided) per day.  The cost for us to come to just photograph the event is free.  Steve Elmhirst, the instructor and organizer of this annual event, suggested that the wind (a crucial element for this sport) may be more favourable in the afternoon.  Therefore, on Saturday January 19th we will meet at 11:15 at the Hwy 28/Ontario Street car park near the 401 in Port Hope to carpool to Elmhirst’s.  This gives us time to have lunch in the dining room overlooking the lake (Hearthside Room) and time to shoot the afternoon events.  Our focus for shooting is action, colour, and landscape.  This outing is of course weather dependent.  I will get a weather update from Steve on Friday the 18th.  I have tentatively booked a table for 10 at noon in the dining room overlooking the lake.  Please let me know by e-mail (This email address is being protected from spambots.
