Re: Custom Handle Information

Robbie, Mikey is an artist. You don't rush an artist. :up: Rest assured they will be worth the wait. In the mean time, try it yourself. I am in the process of making a couple of pairs myself. They'll never compare, but I like to tinker when I get time as well. In fact, I'm going to try the stitched ...

Re: Possible Sugar Grove kite day

It will be at the new middle school. They have plenty of parking and open grounds as well as using the football field for featured flying if they need. Still waiting to hear more and very preliminary so far. I do hope that they have a training field for people. I might be talked into volunteering. I...

Possible Sugar Grove kite day

I got early word that the park district is planning on having a kite festival in early October. Looks like Chicago Kite has reached out to them or vice versa. It's where I usually fly and has some wide open spaces.

I'd like it to succeed, but it will be competing with peewee football.

Re: Team Flying Clinic?--xx Canceled xx

Thanks again Bill. It was uniquely interesting. I never considered flying a glider before. If I can find a large open space to use sometime I may end up buying one. Definitely a different skill set.

Re: Hello from West Central Illinois

Welcome Robbie. Welcome to fresh air, sunshine, camaraderie and lots and lots of kites. You need a kite for every possibility. Sure. You start with the SLK's, then it doesn't stop. Oh well. Best addition I ever could have had.

Re: 2014-15 IKE Fall Winter Sewing Something Session.

Well my wife's space is still being built out. The developer is dragging his feet so the space won't be available won't be available that weekend. If it was we'd be painting and moving in. Maybe we can schedule at a later date.

Re: Team Flying Clinic?--xx Canceled xx

I can definitely make it. I may not be able to stay for the indoor flying, but we'll see how the time goes. Hey - you were ready to stay downtown all day . . . . Since I'm not going downtown I agreed to pick up the dogs from the vet so the wife can go out with a friend who is going through a rough ...

Re: Team Flying Clinic?

I'll probably head in earlier, so 10 works for me. I don't think there's going to be much competition for space.

Do you guys know if parking is free? I ask because in my last few excursions downtown Chicago hasn't let a space go unmetered. I haven't lived on the north side for 20 years.

Re: 2014-15 IKE Fall Winter Sewing Something Session.

OK. Back to the sewing topic. Steve and I are open for Thanksgiving weekend. I realize it's a holiday weekend, but Saturday or Sunday would work if anyone's interested. My wife has signed up a partner to share the space so I'd have to have a definite date for the future in order to reserve the space...
