i never look at the trees quite in the same way anymore! :wink:

Re: Attn: Kankakee / Bourbonnais Residents

My brother-in-law knows the people that donated the park. i once took a close-up picture of the most gorgeous yellow Swallowtail Butterfly at Perry Farm. Sometime i'll have to upload the pic for you guys! ...

Re: Favorite Weather Per Hour Sites For Illinois

More towards when i began flying, i had an E2 sport kite that had a wind meter unit that came with it. Although it was rather crude, it worked remarkably well. Any more i never use the wind meter. Once i arrive at the flying field i can tell right away which kite i need to pull out of the bag; and, ...

Favorite Weather Per Hour Sites For Illinois

These are my favorite weather per hour web sites for Czechoslovakia. Ok, these are for Illinois, actually! The top one is one of the best, IMHO. All can differ and each one has its own merits and faults! i rely on these babies a lot, especially the day before going out! Often i compare all of them! ...

We have a couple great spots in the bourbonais area. We want to move our club flys around a bit to even up the drive times. The next fl...

Re: Bookmarking The Forum--saving As A Favorite

Knoted, I bet you can swing some of the quad folks a little your way as well. If you're interested, maybe this summer, we can have an Intro to Quad day and an Intro to Dual day. You can try and teach the quad-heads some basic dual line stuff, and vice versa. Or maybe try an Airbow, which seems to b...

Re: Light Wind Kite

A Prism Flashlight would be great for a beginner! They can do quite a few tricks very nicely and have very good precision.

If you would be interested in a used one, i might be willing to part with mine for a reasonable price; it is in great shape!
