Membership facility reinstated

Following our affiliation to the British Kite Sports Association (BKSA) we are now again able to offer third party insurance facilities for flying power kites. This is available by joining the SPKA via the BKSA membership facility. By selecting the Scottish Power Kite Association from the BKSA club menu, the SPKA receive a contribution for each membership/insurance selected. All insurance provision and cover details are available from the BKSA web site.

The 2017 European Championships were held at the end of August beginning of September at Hoylake on the Wirral

Five of our top pilots attended the competition; Stuart Mackay (14th), Stephen Pirie (18th), Bob Mitchell (32nd), Alan Payne (39th) and Tommy Hastings (40th, in his first European competition), all put in commendable performances representing Scotland against the rest of Europe. The Association offers its congratulations to the new European male and female Champions; David van Boven, Belgium and Olivia Lys, France. Germany took the top honours in the team awards. Congratulations also to the PKA for hosting such a great event!
