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

Side note question: Where do you tie your kite lines ? There were two different knots. One where all the othe...

Re: Club Fly - August 6th?

OK, well, it's 11:30 pm, and I haven't heard from Captain, and it looks like Darkspark and TJ are out of the picture tomorrow. So, Mark, I think it's just you and me on Saturday. The field in Wheaton is OK . . . but lately I've been disappointed there due to the trees around it (and there's a row a...
