Re: November club fly (or two)?

Man... the weekend weather is going down hill fast. It's still a few days off, but they're talking about 25mph winds with gusts to 50 ... I might be better off cutting one of my window screens into the shape of a Rev and trying to fly that... :)

Re: November club fly (or two)?

Speaking if a cold November ... Right now the forecast is calling for 64 with a chance if rain on Sunday! Maybe an opportunity to try at the new field we were discussing in the car, Steve?

I'm tentative, but hopeful at this point.

Re: November 9 & 10 flying . . . .

Absolutely! I thought you were out sick. It's actually a Regal theater. It's on the corner of dihel and Winfield road. You can't miss it. There's a red robin, rock bottom, and a few other restaurants there as well.

Re: High praise for our leader's team manual

I was flipping through this a bit today and I began to wonder what the logic was behind having the kites numbered right to left instead of left to right?

Re: GLKF 2014

My parents have a place in Holland so I'll probably stay there. I was going to offer it up as a dinner BBQ spot for one of the nights if anyone is interested. Could also sleep one or two people if anyone wanted free room and board. ... If there's interest, I'd need to run all that past the 'rents be...

Re: November 9 & 10 flying . . . .

Works for me. The AMC 30 (or what ever it is now) at 88 and Winfiled might be a good place to park a car for a day, but if Naperville Rd. is more convenient that's fine too, I've got to pass by both of them. :) See you at the regal theaters. What time? Well, that's a good question ... I don't know ...

Ah, so you're not going to make it down to the club fly in Champaign on Sunday?

I can't make it out to the school today, unfortunately...

Re: November 9 & 10 flying . . . .

Saturday or Sunday? Or both? I'm (sort of) on your way . . . . and/or I can meet you at an exit off I-88 Sunday ... Was just looking at Waze, and it seems to think Rt. 47 is the best route there instead of 57. Is there some major construction on 57 or something? TMadz? Interesting in joining our ca...

I just printed out the manual at work today too. I guess I'll have to re-print it once the one with animations is available.... :)

Anybody thought about car pooling for either event?


I wouldn't be opposed ... I can take 3 in my car ... 4 if I take the car seat out.

I can see why Ben went with "New York Minute" ... that's a much catchier name. :)

Re: November 9 & 10 flying . . . .

I'll bug Ben to see if we'll have samples of the new Revs by this weekend. Not to high-jack the thread (but I guess I am) what's the advantage/difference to the "New York Minute" Revs? Is it a different panel layout? Is it just a visual thing? And just to keep it relevant to the thread, I...

Sugar Grove - Nov 3rd

Who's up for a fly at the IKE Sugar Grove North East Regional Flying Field (also known as Harter Middle School) tomorrow, Sunday, Nov 3rd? I'm thinking maybe around 10:30 or 11:00 but I'm open to other times if they work better for other folks.

Re: November club fly (or two)?

Works for me! I'll try and make it ... Might be closer to 10 for me though. :)

Would anyone want to try a Sugar Grove fly on Sunday?
