Me and Shari are going to be in the city for a Keller Williams concert that night. We may be able to come up early and fly. I got a chance to see northerly Island last month at another concert, Nice park. Where do you normally fly at? The far southern end? or just past the planetarium?

Hey Mike

OK then. Let's make it official. How about 11 AM?

Jeff, you need to get your KAP rig in the air that day.

I just received a voice mail from Caroline of the Chicago Park District and we are set for the 17th. Parking will be available south of the old terminal and the building will be open from 9 to 5 pm.

Chris and I are in. Lauren is a maybe. If Lauren comes we will be there a little later, after her soccer game.

There may be a new Rev flyer coming as well. TJ is his name. He tried a Rev at MOTS, got hooked, and bought his own.

Isaac, Thanks for checking on the parking situation.

There is an awesome view here. KAPing would be great!

A map for those you haven't been there. Coming in on 18th Drive off Lake Shore Drive is better than McFetridge Drive

I'll bring the PA thingy. But I don't have the team kites, so make sure to bring your own.

I plan to be there. I just purchased a new Rev. You may want to steer clear of me, or at least wear body armour...

Hey TJ

What type / color Rev did you get?

You will have plenty of space to fly, crash and cause widespread panic at Northerly Island.

I've got this stupid cough/cold that wont go away.
Even though I was looking forward to it, I'm going to have to miss this after all.

Mike,

Recent studies show a state of euphoria induced by holding the handles of a Rev in motion has been medically :doc: proven to have significant healing powers.

You might want to reconsider. If not, get well soon!
