Re: A Proposal - Tethered Aviation and Tea

I spent the weekend battling a nasty flu bug. Sorry I missed the Germantown fly. I'm sooo done with the :censored: health issues. :roll:

I'll coordinate with you all on the steampunk fly. Any weekends in late-September, early-October sound better than others?

Re: A Proposal - Tethered Aviation and Tea

That sounds GREAT - we're at Bristol both days this weekend, but I might have to sneak out to come up and see you guys (you wouldn't mind me kiting in corset, skirts, and piratey gear, would you?). :-D The number one question, btw, was "Ooooh, can we have a kite battle? Airship versus giant squ...

A Proposal - Tethered Aviation and Tea

Hey all, Sorry for being all absent - between Bristol and work, I haven't had a weekend free for a while. But September is looking good (depending on finances, we're a maybe for the beach retreat), and my boyfriend, Randy, has been wanting to meet everybody. He suggested combining a steampunk "...

Re: Club fly weekend of 4/28-29?

I may end up just going to Vernon Hills on Sunday. Probably in the morning, if the wind is looking good. Yeah, Saturday isn't looking so nice (though I don't have anything against flying in the rain most of the time, rain + <60°F temps is too hard-core for me. ;)

Re: Club fly weekend of 4/28-29?

Heya strangers,

I could do next weekend, either day. The 28th would probably work better, but I can juggle things for Sunday if the wind is better.

:D

Re: Possible fly on Sunday, 12/18?

I can't fly on Saturday, but I'm going to be flying on Sunday for sure, either at Vernon Hills, or somewhere in the burbs. :D

Any of you guys up for that?

Possible fly on Sunday, 12/18?

I may have to work, but if I can avoid it, I will be trying to hit Vernon Hills or Glenview. Weather looks to be around 44F, and winds 10-15 mph. If those hold, it might be a pretty decent day of flying.

Saturday is out for me. I'm getting new ink. :up:

Both would work for me. Let me know when you get the nod from the Boss.

Re: Maybe fly this weekend? 12/3 or 12/4

Sounds good to me. Where are you thinking? I was considering heading to the Vernon Hills soccer fields, but I could just as easily hit someplace else out that way.

Re: Club Fly Nov 19th or 20th?

It's going to be too cold for me, I'm sorry to say. I have a cold, so I need to take it easy or I'll be sick for the holiday next week.

Have fun, though.

Re: Quick Fly, Kankakee, 11/5

I'm going to be there early-ish on Saturday. :) I want to get on the road early, which will get me there sometime between 8:00 and 10:00 (depends on how lazy I am), and I'm planning on staying until 2:00 or 3:00.

:D

See you guys there!!

Northerly Island is good for me on the 19th or the 20th (19th is marginally better). :D

Quick Fly, Kankakee, 11/5

Looks like the wind will be decent on Saturday, 11/5, and I have a newly repaired Wrangler that is itching for a road trip.

Anybody want to get together in Kankakee that day?

Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/17-7/23

I did fly last Wednesday, btw - a 10m Slingshot (model escapes me at the mo). Wind was perfect, water a little on the warm side, and with the exception of a couple of wake-boarders playing out in the middle of Lake Waubesa, we were the only people out there for the entire session. I soooo need to wo...
