Quick Fly - November 20 Or 21?

So, I have been really absent from everything kite-related for waaaay too long. I will finally be emerging from my work-cocoon and venturing out into the chilly November air round about the 19th, which is when I ship out the last of my big marketing packages.

Does anyone want to try to get together in Kankakee on the 20th or 21st to fly? I know it's a ways out, but if I don't schedule something now somebody from work will find me a new project. :shock:

Not sure what our plans are yet but we will see if we can be there.

I'll try, but I'm not sure what my Thanksgiving plans are yet.

We have a wedding to go to on the 20th but we could always go in the morning. The 21st I think is open for now.

Not sure what our plans are either, but if we are in town, I'd probably be up for either day.

OK I just pulled up the weather for the weekend and as of now it is looking good for Saturday but predicting rain for Sunday.

So are we on for Saturday?

Mikey and I should be able to fly till about 1:30 and 3:30 if we skip the ceremony (sometimes you just have to do what you have to do :lol: )

The weather I just pulled (for Dupage) shows only a slight chance for rain but does show very light wind on Saturday and better wind on Sunday. Maybe we should see what the weather is looking like for the weekend when we get to Thursday or Friday.

If we are in town . . . . .

Sunday definitely looks better, wind-wise, and for me, work-wise.

Just looked at the weather again . . .

Wind forecast for Dupage . . . Saturday is 10mph, Sunday is 14mph gusting to 25+, warmer but with a slight chance for showers. Looks about the same for Kankakee (maybe a bit less wind on Saturday than Dupage).

At this point, I don't think we are going away for the week so I can fly either day, but Sunday is better.

Right now, I plan to be there . . . not sure of the arrival time yet or if my son will be along. I'd guess closer to noon. Can someone confirm the location for me? Is it Limestone Park - link below -

There's a chance I'll be there too.

Sorry to hear about the wake, hope we can see you at the next club fly.

Now I have to say thanks to fellow IKE members:

:thanks: Thank you to Wendy for posting the club fly . . . we had a good time even though we got there quite late.

and . . . :thanks: thank you to Darkspark (Mikey) for letting me fly his vented on the 120' lines with long handles. Plus the other items . . . . thank you.

and . . . :thanks: to Big Mike for hand delivery of my latest "dark side" [strike]addiction[/strike], er . . . addition . . . . I'll post a picture in "the kite site" thread soon (my son is in bed already and I want him to be holding it).

Just wanted to add my thanks to the list. I had a blast, and really needed the kite time. Hopefully it won't be another however-many months before the next time I get to fly with IKE.

:)

Happy Thanksgiving everybody!!

sorry to have missed it, glad y'all had a good time. It seemed the weather was pretty warm for this time of year too.
