Yep I flew there with y'all this Spring with snow on the ground. Now the Park District has expanded to an area to the east which adds to the kite flying possibilities.

Re: Possible Sugar Grove kite day

I agree with Steve and Todd that the weather probably had a big influence on the lack of kite flyers. It's a nice area, though and should be a candidate for any local IKE flys.

Um . . . were you the only people there?


The only ones of any importance. ;)

It was not well attended. Chicago Kite had several larger kites aloft in the football/track area. But maybe only a dozen other kites were up at any one time.

Re: Possible Sugar Grove kite day

Four of us showed up. Dave, Todd, Brian and myself.

Gusty, weird omni-directional wind.

I may meet you there. If you know about when you'll be there, please post it here. Ditto Swannie.

Thanks,

Re: Aug 22 or 23 quick fly

Today I went over to the Primrose Farm field that the STC Park District official suggested as a kite flying area. In fact it seems decent. However it does have sections marked for sports. And baseball diamonds. So there might be conflicts there too. Flew for about an hour. Nary a soul around. Lookin...

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

Nice size increase! Should be adequate. I do like the drag and drop method of adding photos now. Much easier.
Max photos per post used to be six if I recall.

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

Regarding photo posting. It does appear that the max file size has increased based on my experiments. At least 500 KB as far as I can tell. At least double the previous, if I recall. That helps. Thanks for that, Mike.

Re: I KNOW--the forum has changed!

Mike - Small comment - it seems like the emails I get notifying me of updates to the threads take me to the top of the thread, not the last post. I think the old forum used to put you right at the last post (or at least the one that triggered the email). Is that a setting on notifications or someth...

A few of us did March 28 along the Chicago lake shore this year. Yeah cold. But I think it was a colder than normal winter.
