Bob and Charmayne's hints and tricks

 #1:  pockets

Sometimes it it very frustrating trying to get spars into pockets when you are on the flying field, fighting the wind and your kite skin is blowing around. I make our pockets so they do not lie completely flat. Use a thin rod slipped into the pocket when sewing the second side. Simple to do and it will make kite assembly easier.
