Re: Is it time to close down this forum?

Well . . . some of us do watch for updates to threads we've posted to in the past. We're not all gone (yet).

Re: Hello from Troy Illinois

Hello "Stick" from Troy. Mike is right - the club is kind of inactive these days (and the forum has been especially quiet). If you haven't already connected with the Gateway kite club, they are you best (somewhat) local bet. I know Donna flies quads, not sure about the other members. If yo...

Re: Is it time to close down this forum?

Well . . . I'd like to keep the forum and club running, but then I haven't been posting here or doing stuff to keep the club active. Including not scheduling a retreat or club fly events. Forums seem to be slowly winding down with FB taking over everything. Maybe I'll try to restart some of the acti...

WSIKF - 2019 - August

So . . . this summer's WSIKF is going to include another attempt by John B. to get 100 quad line flyers into a mega fly for the 30th anniversary of Revolution. Since he now has his own quad line kite design (Djinn) now, he's opening it up to any quad kite. So that means Revs, Lam Haoc, Kite Forge, B...

Easter Sunday - 4/21/19 - Busse?

OK, so I know it's Easter, but . . . it's supposed to be 75 with SSW winds between 5-10 maybe with gusts to 15. That sounds ideal for Busse (or maybe the ESSC in St. Charles). I'm thinking maybe an afternoon of kite flying. Just for grins, I figured I'd post here to see if anyone gets notifications ...

Re: Kite Sale 2.0

Hey Habel - this is Steve. Kite sales are relatively infrequent here - I posted here as most of the members are friends and people I see in the area, so selling kites to the group would be easier than dealing with shipping. That said, I pretty much always have kites I should sell because I'm not fly...

Hey Eddy - we did not see you there. You missed out - we had two days of spectacular afternoon flying - good wind, bluebird skies

IKE Retreat - September 22-23 2018

Hey everybody - it's time for the retreat! We are planning for September 22-23 at the Indiana Dunes. Pick any hotel that works for you in the Chesterton area, and we'll see you on the beach!

Re: Hello from Champaign, IL

Did I see that you won a custom Polo rev on KiteLife? If so, congrats. It'll be a very nice kite. You'll have many IKE members who will happily help you with Rev flying if you are new to it.

Re: Hello from Champaign, IL

Hey Crystal - welcome to IKE! Glad John pointed you in our direction. As Mark and Mike mentioned, we'd all be willing to spend time with you flying Revs. Most of the IKE members fly revs . . . and some of us fly single line kites and duals (pretty rare for me). I don't fly as much in the winter, but...

Re: new from Aurora, IL

Hey - new from Aurora - just a quick reminder. The IKE retreat is coming up September 23-24 at the Indiana Dunes State Park in Chesterton, IN. Many of us will be there flying kites (weather permitting) and hanging out. It would be great to see you there.

Re: new from Aurora, IL

This past Saturday I took my 81 year old dad to the doctor. By Monday he was in the hospital. Been there twice this year with my 85 yo father, plus another trip to the ER. Hope your father gets well, and you can bring him out to fly kites with you. If you are looking to take him to a kite festival,...
