Club Fly in Chicago, March 6,2011

Postby Mike » Sun, Feb 13 2011, 05:18 PM

Let's try this.
Plenty of notice to plan ahead...
In Chicago, so it's closer for some of you...
How does Sunday, March 6 at Meigs Field/Northerly Island sound?

Barring last minute what-nots and weather, who's up for this?

That's 3 days before my birthday, and 4 days after Shari's. Is there gonna be cake? I think we should be able to make it. Have to wait till it gets closer to be sure, but I we are in!

Yay!! :clubfly:

I've been down with a nasty case of pneumonia, but I should be all cured up and ready to fly by then. :) It'll be great to see everybody.

I'm going to try to make this club fly . . . but I have a lot going on at work right now that may impact my ability to attend.

On a separate note, does anyone like the idea of having a regular "First Sunday" club fly like some other clubs? Maybe that would make it easier to plan. We could rotate the location or have it at a festival if there was one already going on during the "first sunday" weekend. Maybe rotate between northern Chicago 'burbs/Wiscosin border, central Chicago/suburbs, and south suburbs/central Illinois each quarter. If there was no festival, maybe something like Illinois Beach State Park (never been there, don't know if it's good) one month, Northerly Island or Naperville/Lisle/Busse Woods the next month, and Kankakee/south the third month.

I'm willing to bet something like this has already been suggested . . . .

We did try that early on and it didn't work too well, but we could try again. We can toss around some ideas at the club fly.

Unfortunately I am going to have to miss this fly. My grandmother in Florida fell ill. Me and my dad are going down there and I won't make it back until the day of the fly. Good side is I should have a chance to fly at the beach a time or two. Beaches are nice, but I would rather be flying with you folks on a chilly grass field.

Great news is I got in an hour today in the sunshine :-D . Winds were variable, but at least I got some practice.

Sunday is looking more and more probable for me as well - and I will try to have David in tow (and maybe my daughter as well if she can be convinced).

Current hourly weather forecast graph for Sunday is calling for 25mph winds . . . with a chance of snow. Wind chill about 13-14 degrees. Of course, a lot can change between now and then . . . . yesterday it was showing no snow and 15 mph winds for our suburb.

We'll see what the forecast is Friday evening. I ignore wind forecasts unless they are extreme. They are so often wrong.
I'm hoping to have a stack of newly printed shirts for those that wanted them. Sounds like it may be a bit chilly for t-shirts, but the sweatshirts will be a good layer :)

I'm sure Jynx has a line set that'd reach Chicago from out west.
