Might have to trade or call off, but I'm planning on being there. No solo demos (Ha!) but I'll be flying. Maybe with a quad mega-fly?

Don't forget to include :Logo180GO!: in the ads too. We'll get you photos or logos if you need them.

Naperville is really turning into a class act! A must attend kite festival for IKE

Thanks to the park district and Chicago Kite!

I'll bring my Roks, though I may need some more line. I think what I have has been getting chopped pretty short from the previous festivals. :lol:
If I'm in a hotel on Friday night, I'll be there as early as needed on Saturday morning to set up. Otherwise, we'll rely on the more local IKE folks to setup on Saturday morning.

Looks to me like a simple error on the Naperville Suns part. I wouldn't even have noticed it since the actual article mentions Naperville numerous times, and lisle not at all.

Yeah, clearly about Naperville...the question was just rhetorical. I wonder how stuff like that even happens.

Loks like someone saw it and fixed it up. It now reads:
