Does anyone know what happend Aug 14th at about 6pm at the Event Site? We were sitting on the grass and saw a kiter down in the water near the White Salmon Bridge. The kiter appeared to be in the barge lane and it looked like a barge either hit the kite, or kiter, or got really really close. The barge slowed and tried to stop. After the collision or near collision the barge came to a complete stop and stayed there for ten minutes or so. At that point there were lots of kiters in the area and some of then abandoned their kites. Does anyone know what happened? Is the kiter ok?[/list]

I was out kiting last night.
I saw the Kiter in question packing up last nite ~8pm.
Word on the beach, a fellow kiter saved the day...just in time.
Scary to say the least.[/list]
