Re: Club Fly Saturday, 2/5/2011?????--nope!

I think from now on, I'm going to have to carry a copy of the ordinances in my kite bag. Sure, not a bad idea...here's a link to the document... http://www.dupageforest.com/media/files/cms/GENERAL%20USE%20REGULATION%20ORDINANCE%20FINAL%20100609.pdf Yep, that's the one I used to correct the forest p...

Re: Club Fly Sunday 2/13?

Another maybe. I might go skiing up north with the kids. If I don't go to Wisconsin, I'd be up for a fly. I'd have to leave by about 3 pm as the cub scout pack has another event next Sunday (early evening) so I'd need to be back in the western suburbs by late afternoon.

Re: Club Fly Saturday, 2/5/2011?????--nope!

It was nice (but cold) up here. We got out on the lake and were enjoying flying (me on the new 120' set I just finished making - even a Rev I kite is tiny at the end of those lines). Then a bummer - the Dupage Forest Preserve cop (who was checking fishing permits) comes out on the ice and says "...

Re: Kite Party 9 Roll Call -- Mar 12-13, 2011

I'd like to go, but I don't think I can commit due to work until much closer to the actual date. I've got some big client projects due at the beginning and middle of March. Edit: . . . . and I just found out that March 13th is the Pinewood Derby for my son's cub scout pack, which is his favorite sco...

So the official club fly is off for this weekend . . . however I may still go for a few hours in the Chicago western suburbs if anyone is interested in connecting.

Re: Club Fly Saturday, 2/5/2011?????

No problem for Kankakee . . . just thought I'd ask in case further north was not a problem . . . For me, Sunday probably does not work for a variety of reasons. On Saturday, I'll have to leave Kankakee by about 3 pm (or earlier if my hands freeze :mrblue: ) According to the forecast right now, Satur...

Re: Club Fly Saturday, 2/5/2011?????

And here I was just today trying to think of a catchy name for suggesting a Saturday club fly. Saturday Superfly? Superbowl Weekend Saturfly? February Freezing Fly? The only reason I didn't post is that I might go skiing with the kids this weekend instead to give my wife a break . . . but I doubt th...

Re: How Many People Want A Club T-shirt?

Yup, I can order anything you want: kids sizes, women's cut, windbreakers, sweatshirts, whatever. I live in a new town, so once I have an idea of what people want, I'll contact the local places and see what the costs are. I'll sell them close to my cost. The bigger the order, the cheaper things get...

Re: How Many People Want A Club T-shirt?

Yes please! How did you know I was thinking about asking how to get a shirt in time for this year's kite season?

[strike]Do you also have kid's sizes? If so, I'd probably order one for my son . . . .[/strike]

OK, put me down for two t-shirts - XL.
1 kid's t-shirt - Medium

Re: Leading Edge Mesh Repair

I use the same approach. To prevent the chance of creasing the kites in your suitcase, roll the kites (from side to side) up around a piece of water pipe foam. Cheers, Tom Great idea! Since I have a small rollaboard suitcase, I rolled up a tshirt & shorts to make a tube, then rolled the kites a...

Thanks for the quick reply! I thought that it might be window screen material . . . but you never know. I was out of kiting so long I had no idea that spars are now made from carbon fiber.
