Boosting Contest

Looks like our friends up north put together an informal contest to see who can send it the highest. Great idea, initiative, execution. #soundslikefun

Great idea!
We should do more organized events here like they do up there.
A downwind race like they do as part of the Bridge of Gods events would be an option also.
Where would a good place be?

Is there any regulations on kite types or technique used to get big air?
