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...

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,...

I just cancelled my West hotel. Currently thinking Shawnee national Forest or Kentucky or Tennessee.

Re: DuKane area club fly Aug 19 or 20

Same here regarding crowding. I'm considering anyplace along the line between about Grand Island, Nebraska and Kentucky. I figure the population is lower in Nebraska, and the climate there tends drier. But the final weather forecast is going to be the deciding factor. I've actually been to Boonville...

Bill, where are you headed? I'm also going for totality, likely West. We could have a club fly during totality!

Re: DuKane area club fly Aug 19 or 20

Hello, sorry for not replying sooner . . . . I've been out of touch for a few days. I'd be up for a fly, but I'm probably leaving town early for the eclipse. I might be around on the 19th depending on weather projections & how far I'll have to drive for clear skies on Monday.

Re: NYM single vent vs double vent

You might want to try to make it to one of the Pontiac club fly events sponsored by Route 66 Kites. Big Mike will likely have NYM kites and/or the new Reflex kites to try (including the Reflex Spider). Depending on who is there, the 180Go! team bag might be there (for sure at the October Pontiac kit...
