Re: a Semi Annual Retreat?

I would love to have a semiannual retreat. Knowing that you guys are busy in the Spring, it'd be subject to your schedule. Maybe if we can pick a couple of weekends as options depending on how the festival schedule shapes up. Also, we could firm up the weekend for next years September retreat.

Re: Two Rivers! Kites over Lake Michigan 2015

Hope its not too late to ask questions. Since its my first time up there, can we park nearby early or do I have to take the shuttle? It will affect what I plan to bring up with me. I wanted to bring a couple of SLK's as well as maybe a banner or pole. Also, is there an open area for regular fliers? ...

Re: Possible Sugar Grove kite day

From what I've heard there is going to be lots of activities for families, but at the same time I'm beginning to wonder how much room there is going to be to fly kites.

Re: Aug 22 or 23 quick fly

I'm familiar with it. It is a large park and there is plenty or room. It's a little out of the way. I know TriCities football practices there in the evenings and I don't recall if the flag football plays there on Saturdays. The park district obviously wants to keep the fields open for sports. It's n...

Re: Aug 22 or 23 quick fly

So did "The Fuzz" ... But we stood our ground. :) Since I'm a St. Charles taxpayer I will try to follow up on this with the Park District. When I spoke with one of the supervisors last year there was no mention of an issue. From what I gathered from that conversation was that there are so...

Re: It arrives on Monday...

Careful what you wish for. I have a 4m trainer with a depower line. Don't be afraid to let go. It can kill you if you're not careful. Sometimes going through the center of the wind window is scary when you realize how strong the air really is.

Agree with jay. It happens when you are a noob, but the curve is supposed to straighten out. Contact them for the specs and you can buy parts replacement parts yourself much cheaper.
