Re: Help

Would it be weekday or weekend activities? I would like to help with something like this but it would be hard to do on a weekday. It is a little bit of a drive. There are some places that sell kite making kits for kids. Or there is a few ways to put a kit together on your own. Maybe someone on here ...

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

We are in for sure. Shari said check out the comfort inn. It is fairly close, and had breakfast. One thing I think we need to find out also is what kind of common room the hotels have. Would be nice if there is a place we can all hang out at night without taking up the whole lobby.

I am sure there might be an extra rev or two there that you can use. If for some reason you can't procure one in time. And Welcome to the club!

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat! Sept 29-30

It is the Indiana dunes national lakeshore. If you take 49 North, it runs right into the park. It is a really nice family friendly beach, with some nice, if a bit strenuous, nearby hiking. So feel free to bring the whole family.

Re: Let's have a club fly!

We have already been flying together a few times. He has an EXP in red and blue. With some nice matching handles. 8-) We will drag him to one of the club events sooner or later. Maybe the retreat.

Re: 2nd Annual IKE Retreat!

It is late enough in the year for the beach to not be too crowded. Worst case is we will have to walk down the beach a little further. I have flown there many times with out a problem. Shari and I will occasionally go up in the afternoon to fly for a few hours. The swimming closes at 5, and after th...
