PLEASE READ THE WHOLE DOCUMENT, TO BE UPDATED ON CRANDON PARK RULES FOR THIS SEASON. ALSO, FEEL FREE TO PASS IT ALONG;


With Last year experience, we came to the following necessary improvements:

- The Sign-in will be simplified by attributing a PERSONAL STREAMER for the entire Season to each Crandon park registered rider.

- The creation of a CRANDON RIDERíS CLUB including a MEMBERSHIP FEE to allow better Signage, more interactivity through Events and Races monthly, more commitment to Self-regulating on our spot, and a WEBPAGE to keep in touch with the Miami kite life.

- SAFETY for bystanders & Riders could be dramatically improved by adjusting CORRIDOR BUOYES.

- NUMBER OF RIDERS ALLOWED ON WATER should BE INCREASED to allow all of us to ride in windy days and reduce waiting lines when signing-in the daily sheet.


Those are the main changes that will occur this year. Other than that, the rules are pretty much the same.


CRANDON RIDER REGISTRATION FOR THIS SEASON:

So in order to ride in Crandon Park, make sure you prepare the following requirements, effective now as Crandon Park officially re-open on weekends. (After Sept 1st):
