Re: November 29 - 2nd annual Busse Woods Black Flyday -

There is little to no wind :(. I am taking my kid to Woodfield, so I may bring a kite to Busse Woods anyway. I am trying to avoid Woodfield personally at all costs. :

Re: November 9 & 10 flying . . . .

Steve & I had a great time. I asked for wind, & I got it. I got all sorts of wind. Wind to the left, wind to the right, wind disappearing, wind coming back with a vengeance. I'm ready to do it again.

Re: Anyone used a poster tube for kite airline travel?

Last fall I travelled to Argentina with a pair of Rev's bundled up in their sleeves. Other than security questions, I had no issues with them as carry ons. I flew all the way on American.

Re: October club fly?

Wow, I looked at my October calendar.... Because it's late minute, at least for Chicagolanders, how about Busse Woods this weekend? It's somewhat central. As I'm running off my wish list, the earlier the better as my afternoons disappear on me...

Leaving in 15 min MAX, Adventure Dog is sleeping in, & sends her regards to everyone! She has a schedule conflict & won't make it today.

Re: Dekalb Sunday 8th For the Illinois people

They really do make a difference. Trying slides with my little bow tie is tricky enough. It's just practice, practice & practice.

Re: Dekalb Sunday 8th For the Illinois people

Re: New Rev Flier

I"m sure we can squeeze some day in prior to the retreat. Honestly, the winds have been awful this July & August. I went out last night for a bit and practiced on my duals. I need a lot of practice. We should be able to meet somewhere out in the W Suburbs (fly both quads & duals) prior ...
