Don King has been flying kites ever since he was old enough to walk. In 2000, he decided to step up his game and began to compete in Bay Area Sport Kite League (BASKL) events in Northern California. In 2002, he won Grand Champion in the West Coast Kite Championships novice division and went on to compete at the American Kite Association (AKA) Nationals in Ocean City, Maryland. Don is past president of BASKL and has served on the Northern California Kite Club (NCKC) board of directors. A few years ago, Don began to share his enthusiasm for kiting by serving as master of ceremonies and announcer at kite festivals. His lively commentary, kite trivia, kite history and other ramblings are enjoyed by crowds of all ages.
