Club fly weekend of 6/9 - 6/10?

Re: Club fly weekend of 5/12-5/13?

So . . . what time and where? I still don't have clearance from the tower, but if people are going to meet up downtown / lakefront . . . I'd like to have an idea what time works for others. I know in the morning my job is to get breakfast and allow for sleep (i.e. block children from waking up the ...

Re: Club fly weekend of 5/12-5/13?

You could do what we're doing. We are celebrating Mother's day on Saturday. It'll avoid the crowds at the restaurants. There's a possibility I could fly for a couple hours on Sunday afternoon if it's somewhere in the city. Montrose? The Buckingham Fountain? I should be available most of the day Sun...

Club fly weekend of 5/6-5/7?

Saturday looks to be a really nice day at this point.

Anyone interested in doing something over at the lakefront, possibly Northerly Island?

Re: Club fly to shake off the winter blues!

Had a good time today for about three hours at Red Hawk with illescasd and TJ. Wind was pretty variable - from "we need SULs" to full vent within a few minutes, but overall it was not bad. Beautiful morning with warm wind from the south. Nice to get out and fly some more. Thinking about f...

Re: Club fly to shake off the winter blues!

Steve, let's get the Wheaton gig going. I was planning on flying this weekend. I'll meet you at your park, it's Danada right? Let me know. That sounds good - except it depends on the wind direction. I'm less excited by Danada lately because it's surrounded by bushes and trees, and so you only get s...

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 8/7-8/14

Thanks for the tips, all.

I was able to get them loose but I'll have to try some of those recommendations; it is really fun flying on the beach.

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 8/7-8/14

Flew yesterday late afternoon with T.J. at Lunt street beach at Lake Michigan. Super smooth wind, started out at 8-10, dwindling slowly as the sun started setting. Everything is so much easier without the bumps. Flew full vent Phantom, switching to my home-made "Mardi Gras" revlike as the...

Re: Club Fly - August 6th?

Hey TJ, You haven't flown in a while. Wassup? Where do you usually fly in your area? Is there anywhere near you that will handle a half dozen revs on 120's? It's the weather. Can't stand to be out in this kind of heat. It is supposed to cool off some this week, so I'll try to get out and meet you a...

Re: Club Fly - August 6th?

At this point, it looks like it will be a little cooler on Saturday, so if that holds true, I should be in. If it is at Northerly Island, I might be able to get my better half to come along.

Re: Looking to meet new friends and instructors...

Welcome to the club Daniel. I'm new and have been making a fool of myself for the last week . I flew a couple of times two summers ago and started again last week with some IKE members at Greene Valley and with Mark at Busse Woods. Mark has some very cool kites he made himself. All of the IKE member...

Got back out to Busse Woods on Thursday for some more flying with Mark. I got to try his homemade creations which were great. The red and white one makes a nice avatar. :up:

Hi guys. Flew Sunday at Busse Woods, blk/red 1.5 sle 3-wrap and some home-mades; Monday, same place, same, same. Tried flying Tuesday morning at Turner Park in Roselle. Wind was lame and I decided I need an ultralight/indoor rev for those x*##@&% days, so I went home and built one. Took almost ...
