Re: Team Flying Clinic?

Bill, I thought that I was doing better by waiting, but it feels completely different. You just have to do it. Looks like there is enough interest to get together 11/15 and/or 11/16. Let's start talking location.

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

Nothing meant by it. Just a geographic joke since we're closer to each other. Everyone is encouraged to come, even though we don't have a central location that works for everyone.

Re: Team Flying Clinic?

Very Interested. I think Rose mentioned Nov 15th and 16th as the nearest possibility and still open for me. Even if we get one or two rookies and one or two experienced pilots that would work. I learned this weekend there's really no substitute for just doing it. It's a completely different feel. I'...

Re: Swapping a Kite to the Same Lines Question

That's why I'm getting extra sets of handles and making spare 120' lines. Put out a couple or three kites at a time to avoid having to switch.

2014-15 IKE Fall Winter Sewing Something Session.

With the cold weather upon us again, the DuKane chapter of IKE was talking about trying to reschedule the sewing session to give everyone a chance to get together and learn something this winter. My wife is opening a new business space that will have about a 40' x 25' open area for everyone to sprea...

I thought there were so many Mike's because the IKE is free.

Saturday is good for me. Still looking at St Charles? I've been flying on the middle school football field lately.

I am not gonna make it today. The weather yesterday screwed up all my plans. Too much house stuff to work on today.

Re: Sunday Oct 5th -

Middle afternoon is good for me.

Flew a little this morning. Definitely XV wind and quite variable. Had to get the hat and gloves out.

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

It's a tough weekend for me, but I already cleared at least one day for next years retreat. Maybe I take off Friday and go early. Probably should start a new thread for it.

Re: Team Flying Clinic?

Weekends it will have to be. Sun is going down faster every day now. We've tried to make a monthly club fly. Maybe a traveling one. The best way for me is if it's on the calendar and I can schedule around it. I missed montrose the last couple of times.

Re: Team Flying Clinic?

Was it that bad? Kidding. Absolutely would be interested, but I'd like to take the winter to practice the moves you linked to. Unless, that begins to interfere with festival flying next year. Bill, we just have to jump in with both feet. I keep hearing the same thing from everyone. Maybe if we can p...

Re: Joining the club?

Well I would rather have gotten the goose instead of the duck since they're more accessible right now, but noooo. You guys said to get the duck.

Happen to have a XXL in either handy? I'd buy one on site, cash.

Re: Kite Retreat 2014, Sept 27-28

Hats and buff maybe. I bring a small cooler. The walk isn't long. Lots of open beach though. You know we like to spread out. We might have more competition for space since it'll be warm. Ok, not that warm is the wind is off the lake.

Maybe Jay would be willing to let us attach our line laundry to him. Beats having to put up a pole.
