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,...

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...

Re: Anyone want to be our AKA region 6 rep?

Well, it's an unpaid volunteer position (as much as my wishful thinking would like to get paid to fly kites). I think you should send an email to the address mike listed and maybe also check the kite.org web site. They might have something there. Are you an AKA member?

Re: New to Iowa

One more note - if you are into kite making, UMake is held every year the first weekend in March, and it's only about a three hour drive from Des Moines. I've gone the last three years, and will be going again next year.

Re: New to Iowa

Hey Jeff, glad you posted up here and welcome to IKE. I don't know about where to fly in Des Moines, but there are a couple other things to mention (in addition to the retreat, which is awesome every year). There are some kite festivals within driving distance for you. Two that come to mind immediat...
