Re: Lake In The Hills, IL - Can't Wait To Get Out!

Hi Scott, Welcome!! I'm a little swamped at the moment, but if you want to talk boarding, it's one of my obsessions. *grin* After tomorrow I should have some time, and I'll be up at Cool Fool in Milwaukee on Saturday, so either way we can touch base on boarding and I can point you to the appropriate...

Re: Quick Fly December 4 Or 5?

I'm still up for some flying, but I'm going to head to Vernon Hills instead. It's my favorite piece of field in these parts, and I get to combine some Jeeping with flying this way (love to drive in the snow, and if I take back roads there I don't have to interact with too many other drivers). I'm al...

Quick Fly December 4 Or 5?

Hey guys,

Anybody up for a try at Busse Woods or Glenview this weekend? I know itll be cold, and it's even supposed to snow, but I'm going to need a break from writing about philosophy and logic, and I think flying kites will be a good way to do that.

Re: Quick Fly - November 20 Or 21?

Just wanted to add my thanks to the list. I had a blast, and really needed the kite time. Hopefully it won't be another however-many months before the next time I get to fly with IKE.

:)

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!

Sunday definitely looks better, wind-wise, and for me, work-wise.

Quick Fly - November 20 Or 21?

So, I have been really absent from everything kite-related for waaaay too long. I will finally be emerging from my work-cocoon and venturing out into the chilly November air round about the 19th, which is when I ship out the last of my big marketing packages. Does anyone want to try to get together ...

Re: The Kite Site

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!

That is awesome!!

Now if I could just find time to fly the ones I've got, I could maybe justify buying another one. :P

Re: Sunday, November 7th

7th looks possible for me (amazingly enough), though I may be speaking up too soon. I'm interested, anyway, and as long as it's 3-4 hours driving time or less, I'm good with any location.

Re: Antioch Family Kite Fly: October 2, 2010

I'm sorry to have missed it. By the time I got done with work, it was too late to head up. :cry:

I may just have to call in sick to get a kiting day in..... :nurse:

Re: Saturday, October 16 In Pontiac

I have to work. :(

This is becoming a theme... I have to work to support my kiting habit, but I can't fly because I'm working... I think there's a flaw in that set-up... :shock:

Have fun!!

Re: QC - Family Fun & Kite Fest : Sept 25&26

As it turns out, this is the weekend of the breast cancer walk that my mom and her friends do, and they want me to go. So I will not be able to make this. :( On the other hand, my mom is celebrating her 6th year in remission, and three of her friends are celebrating 4-10 years. :-D Maybe next year. ...

Re: Saturday August 28th, 2010, In Pontiac

Got my company picnic on the 28th. :roll: *sigh* I'd rather be out kiting with you folks, but I'm responsible for the thing, so I have to be there for it all (7:00 am to meet the ranger, who will sign my permit saying the spot was clean when we got it, then stay until 8:00 pm to clean up). Have fun....

Re: Keokuk Kite Fair - The Air Fair :: Sept 18 & 19 - 2

Yeah, so I finally mapped this, and I'm not going to be able to go - I can't get out of work early, and it's going to be just shy of 6 hours each way, which is too far for a solo trip in one weekend. And, yeah, I'm a big wussy. :P I also have a paper due that weekend, so the extra there-and-back-aga...
