Re: RE: Re: Saturday or Sunday Nov 14, 15 Fly?

Nice wind today. If I can join, it will likely be later. I'm still cleaning up leaves . . . . and I just ran out of gas for the mower. Have my full vent rigged out. Probably extra vent would work if I had one. Flying dukane style too. http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/11/15/0cb1428cccc348ebb14c9cca...

Re: Saturday or Sunday Nov 14, 15 Fly?

P.S. not sure if I will make it today or not . . . . if I do, I'll be skipping my son's FLL meeting. Plus yard work is not done. That said - east side sports complex, since Mark is not going? Wind from the southwest might also make Danada OK, although I'm not a big fan of that location any longer. ...

Saturday or Sunday Nov 14, 15 Fly?

Decent enough weekend is in the forecast. If anyone wishes to get together. STC East Side, Busse, Sugar Grove or other works for me.

Re: Sunday 11/1 - Vets in Milwaukee or ??

The Wisconsin Kiters are a very welcoming group. Beautiful location to fly.

Hi, it's Steve Nicol from the WKC. This would be a fun fly, open to all. This is in addition to the Veterans Honor Fly taking place on 11/7. There is another page on Facebook called Milwaukee Lakefront Kite Flyers. That's where the discussion originated. If you'd like to join the group, I'd be happ...

Re: Sunday 11/1 - Vets in Milwaukee or ??

If there's gonna be a group of Rev flyers up there on the 1st I can probably do that instead. (If non-Wisconsin Kite Club flyers are invited.)

I see. I have been planning on going up there on the 7th (weather permitting) if Jnyx had not yet departed for Florida.

Isn't the Veterans Honor Fly on November 7? Or is this something in addition?

Re: October 24, 25 Weekend Fly

Looks like no takers. So I'm going local over to the St. Charles East Side Sports Complex at about 1 pm. Wrestle today's wind with my vented Rev and Rev II.

Unless somebody has a last minute better offer.

October 24, 25 Weekend Fly

Autumn marches on and the decent weather days dwindle as well. The current forecast predicts Saturday afternoon to be rain free with decent wind. Sunday nicer but not much breeze.

I can meet just about anywhere, anytime but propose Busse Woods early afternoon on Saturday.

Re: How do you wind your lines?

Speaking of the "Rev pistol." When Baressi was in town about a year ago I scheduled a private lesson. This was at Busse Woods. He was demonstrating line winding. And it ended in the Rev pistol. Which I shoved in my kite bag. About a minute later a Cook County cop drives over the park grass...

Re: How do you wind your lines?

I wonder how many new Rev flyers we lose due to line winding frustration. I know I had fits at the beginning.

I wind straight with a few figure eights thrown in. Ending in the Rev "pistol." A bit of care winding pays dividends when next unwinding.
