Re: Flying Oct 30, 2010 - Western Chicago Suburbs?

Want to suggest somewhere else halfway between our two locations to cut your commute down? Maybe Schaumburg area (like the Busse Woods north parking lot marked on the Google IKE map)? I'm not set on the location - it just looks like another great windy day! I'll check this thread before I head out t...

Flying Oct 30, 2010 - Western Chicago Suburbs?

Anyone interested in flying tomorrow? I'm planning to go flying for a few hours Saturday October 30th with my son David, somewhere in the western suburbs of Chicago, in case anyone is interested in joining us. Probably forest preserves or parks in the Lisle/Wheaton/Naperville area, although I'm open...

Re: Sunday, November 7th

I can't make the 7th due to Cub Scouts but I can probably make the 6th. Other possibilities are 20/21, 27/28. 13th or 14th for a couple hours only. Note . . . I may be editing this after talking to my wife . . . .

Re: Treasure Island Kite Festival . . Jan 14 -16, 2011

I'm tempted . . . it looks like a good time. However, it's a bit too early for me to commit as I don't have my work and family stuff scheduled out that far into the future. If I go, I'd probably stay at my father's house which is about an hour+/- drive from Treasure Island. BTW, thanks for setting u...

Here's the link. Not sure what Revs have to do with Freeman Dyson . . . but it gives the narrator something to do . . .

Re: Revolution 1.5

As a new Rev flyer myself, I can only add . . . . just keep practicing :up: . More than anything else, it takes time flying the Rev until you learn how to react automatically. I'm still crashing my rev into the ground with embarrassing frequency. However, everyone on the IKE forum has been very supp...

Re: Saturday, October 16 In Pontiac

Sunny, warm and windy in Illinois today . . . plus the chance to get to meet a whole bunch of you. It does not get much better on an October Saturday. It was nice to put faces with names (& avatars). My son and I had a great time today! Hope to get to fly again with the club soon.

Re: Saturday, October 16 In Pontiac

I'd love to have a chance to meet some club members and get some Rev lessons for myself and my son. I'll check with the wife and see what she says. Saturday is better for me / Sunday does not work.

thanks.

Re: Hello From Wheaton

And . . . . rev flying just got more expensive (and fun) for me. My son started on the rev last Friday . . . and he's already said they're more fun than his dual lines. Looks like I'll need some more kites . . . . http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/posted_images/user_277_imag0064.jpg And the wind was pul...

Rev Shockwave - Repair Leading Edge?

I have a chance to buy a used Shockwave at a pretty good price (no lines), but the issue is there's a small cut in the leading edge fabric right where the kite is folded to go into the bag. I think from the (blurry) picture he sent, it might be about an inch long. Is this repairable with tape or sew...

Hello From Wheaton

Hello IKE! I just joined up after I saw the team at Dekalb. My 8yo son got me back into kiting after a *cough* 20+ year absence. Back in jr. high school, I bought a Rainbow two line stunt kite (anybody remember those?) and had a lot of fun with it, but somewhere along the way I forgot to "go fl...

Re: Quad Lines - Stretch

I'd love to be there, but my father is in town for the weekend, and my kids have too much stuff going on this weekend for me to get out to Davenport for a day.

Will you guys be at either the festival in Antioch on the 2nd or Glenview on the 9th (Chicago Kite is showing those on their web site)?
