The reason we hold the Connor Endurance Event each year is because of a 13 year Old SWATK member called Connor, Connor sadly passed away in 2010, from a terminal illness, Connor loved power kiting with his grand-dad, he always had fun and fully enjoyed this sport. We hold this event to remember him and why we all do this, for the fun of it, the friends we make, the sheer thrill and exhilaration we all feel, when Power Kiting. This is not a sad event but a joyful remembrance of Connor, even though there is an element of competition, this event is about FUN, enjoying our chosen sport.
