Sample Material: "Kitefliers from as far away as Cocoa, Fla., maneuvered their craft through fickle winds and even through ocean waves in competition for 22 ribbons and prizes at the First Annual Wright Kite Festival in July, 1979. The occasion at Kill Devil Hills, N.C., continued the tradition of the Nags Head, N.C., kite contests of summers past.

"A modified box kite shaped and painted like a crab was awarded `best in show' and `most unusual aerodynamic design (novice class),' but not until its designer, Charles Dunton of Richmond, Va., had fished it from the sea.... G. William Tyrrell of Huntingdon Valley, Pa., was performing barrel rolls with a 200-plus square-foot Sutton Flow Form Parafoil, which ended up draped over the power lines and was awarded the special prize on the spot."
