My interest in preserving the history of Monticello, Minnesota has lead me to the publishing of this website. I hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

World Record Kite Attempt 1978
These are pics and documents of Barrry Lafond
and Dan Kaspers attempt to break the world record for biggest flown
kite. It was back in the summer of 1978. Originally they were told
somebody from California had beat them to it. The second document says
they missed their paperwork and apologized. So they had the record for a
short period of time. CLICK ON THE PICTURE FOR A LARGER PICTURE SLIDESHOW.
