Re: Clear Lake Iowa 2/18

We had a fun day out on the lake. Winds were a little light - but we didn't get cold with all that work to keep the kites up!

Re: Games

I've heard good things about the Catan app, and it's certainly a fun game. We regularly have "Northside Nerd Night" up here in Chicago where we get together once a month or so to play games from banagrams to Catan to the more strategic. Some of our favorite games for grown-ups are Pandemic...

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 9/05-9/11?

the parking at Northerly Island was closed off, but on my way back home grumbling in traffic on Lakeshore I noticed that the beaches looked pretty empty today. So I manned up, paid for beach parking, and was rewarded with beautiful wind -- about 5mph right off the lake. Had a great time on the beach...

I'm looking to head out to Northerly Island for a couple hours this afternoon, anyone in the area let me know if you want to come and I'll put a more definite time on it.

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 8/15-8/21

I didn't end up having time to get out today :( (setting up my classroom is taking longer than I thought), but I will be in Schaumburg regularly now.

Re: IKE Retreat?

I'm with Mikey, the Dunes sounds like more fun!
Doing two kite festival weekends in a row might be tough, but I have no actual conflicts that weekend that I know of yet.
