Don't forget daylight savings time will be in place. More daylight to fly (and drive).

Re: Club Fly, Saturday March 28

Jay, if you have ANY time we have flown here The track next to the forest preserve offices. Several of us have flown here. Surely it's on your way to the interstate.

Re: Possible Sugar Grove kite day

There was a 10 acre rectangular field next to the middle school football field. That's where I flew. there is still plenty of open land on the grounds between the football field and the school. I fly Rev's on the football field now, but haven't gotten too many SLK's out because of the fence and didn...

Re: U-MAKE 2015

No dice. Sorry. Still too busy with other things to be able to go. It's a shame. I really wanted to do the banner class and meet STapp. I hear he's going. I'd love to see if he had more photos of his recent dual line projects. The guy is an artist.

You and Dennis have fun. Wave when you drive by.

Re: Club Fly, Saturday March 28

That's perfect. Spring Break and no kids activities that weekend. I was bummed when we couldn't get the November fly. Hopefully we'll be above freezing at that point.

Re: New from South Elgin

Welcome Ron. We're pretty lucky to have a few fliers in the far western suburbs. We try to fly at least once a month, but Mark, Xay and Bill have much more flexibility in their schedules.

Re: Anybody from Michigan?

I swear to God I thought Swannie was talking about Holland. You know tulips and wooden shoes? Since he's been in Europe for work so much I thought his family immigrated.

It's been a long week.

I want to do the banner or pointer class, but I'll be busy right until the retreat. I have to decide rather quickly if I can make it.

Re: Wednesday 12/31? Last Chance for 2014

I may run to the park for a while this afternoon just to throw up the vented. Counter to all my plans I have flown once for about 15 minutes.

Sorry. Too many household things to take care of today to free up time later. I know it'll be the best weather I get, but work first, then play.

Let me know if you'd like some company.

BTW, the East Side Complex in St. Charles is closed (gated) for the winter.

What about O'Breen park or Peck Farm park in Batavia?
