Re: Quad Team Practice

Mike would that be on Saturday or Sunday? Our schedule is full on Saturday. Sunday is Nick's 16th Birthday and the only thing he said he wanted to do was fly kites. So if it is Sunday count us in. If not, we will probably go to Pontiac, IL. Let us know, Thanks! Mike, Nick, and Zack too...

Nick's 360

Nick and I were out flying this evening. I tried my first 360 and failed miserably. So Nick decided to try it and completed it on his second try. Pretty Cool. Figures the kid would beat the old man to the punch.

Re: When Do You Fly?

We went flying for an hour on Saturday and for 4.5 hours on Sunday in Pontiac. The field was great and so was the weather, no trees to bother, no obstacles, just wide open space. Here are some pictures of Nick and I flying there. Mike http://upload9.postimage.org/101451/pontiac1.jpg http://upload9.p...

Not to make things more difficult, but either day is good for us or BOTH! We put our vote down for the 15th only because it's sooner. We are looking forward to getting together with everyone.

Re: Summer Activities

Sunday July 15th would be good for my whole family. On Saturday, I will be in certification training from 7 AM to 8 PM so that day won't be good for me. We are looking forward to getting together with everyone.

Re: Hello From The Middle Of Nowhere, Cabery, IL

Thanks for all the warm welcomes. Kite flying at the park in Cabery can be good if the winds are any direction from the North and there are no baseball games going on. It is also a Great! place to throw boomerangs. I think in the census for Cabery they were counting all the Cats and Dogs in this tow...
