Don is the current President of TKF, the Toronto Kite Fliers and has helped organize and emcee numerous annual kite festivals including Toronto Kitefest,the Four Winds Festival at Kortright Centre and the Receiving the World Celebration, St John's Newfoundland.
An eager kiting participant, Don takes part all year round in many kite events from traction kiting out on a frozen lake, organizing club workshops, to travelling to kite festivals near and abroad.
Don loves kiting for the simple reason, "you can always find some aspect of the hobby to peak your interest.. if you get bored, you just reach in your kite bag an pull out a different kite or take a break from flying and design something new to build"... If you have any questions please send Don an email.
