Re: This weekend - 4/16 or 17.

Alrighty... I can do either afternoon. Saturday locally. Could probably travel a bit on Sunday if needed.

Re: This weekend - 4/16 or 17.

I'm willing. But might be tough to fit in. First really nice weekend weather so all kinds of chores and such.
(I might be able to do Saturday after 3 for a couple of hours.)

And I see you posted over at FB, too. Where is everybody?!

Re: Saturday 4/9?

The wind has gone away as forecast. Currently 3 kts at DuPage. And I was just over at the East Side Sports Complex. Mushy, wet grass.

Think I'll pass for today.

Re: Saturday 4/9?

Count me in. But you're right, the current forecast winds for the afternoon are a bit light.

Re: Hey, spring's here. Flying time . . . 3/26?

It looks like we can get some flyers in Pontiac, IL, so I'm switching the destination to there. 10 am, Saturday. Most likely, the fields here https://goo.gl/maps/E5AePV7eHJm Ok I should be able to make it. (Are folks checking out the forum site or should we post this type thing to the Facebook page...

Re: Hey, spring's here. Flying time . . . 3/26?

Like you say, depending on weather, I'm interested. And the Kankakee area is OK with me if we have some flyers. I would have to depart there at about 4 pm, however.

Re: Contemplating flying this weekend . . .

I'll probably be at STC East Side Sport Complex (It is open.) at about 1:30 this afternoon for about an hour if I'm by my lonesome.
I can possibly be talked into a change of location if anyone has suggestions and wants to meet.

Re: Revolution reflex?

Thanks for the videos guys. So is this a Rev for folks just starting out? The face down launch is nice, but after a short while most of us know how to land so that the kite is upright. Except for those light wind days when it sometimes falls over. (And I've watched a bunch of you better flyers reset...

Re: Kite Party

Hope you guys get to test that new Rev Reflex. Can't quite understand what it's all about. Rev marketing is dismal.

Have fun.

Re: U-Make 2016

Wow . . . super quiet on the IKE board. I had a great time at U-Make. Came home exhausted yesterday from about 20+ hours of kite making (I'm very slow at making), and I think I was almost the last person to leave on Sunday. Made two kites . . . but I still have to finish the tails and make some bag...

Re: Revolution reflex?

That's it? Other than a new sail size from what I understand. I suppose simple is good.
