I may have to work, but if I can avoid it, I will be trying to hit Vernon Hills or Glenview. Weather looks to be around 44F, and winds 10-15 mph. If those hold, it might be a pretty decent day of flying.

Saturday is out for me. I'm getting new ink. :up:

Thanks for posting!

I can't fly on Sunday . . . but maybe on Saturday. My wife is working on Saturday, so I'll have to drive my daughter everywhere that day. However, there's some time between 10 - 1:30 pm near Winfield, or around 3:30-4:30 near Wayne when I'll be waiting around for her to get done with her activities. Can't go very far from either of those places . . . . or I won't get any flying time.

Right now, the forecast for Saturday is showing light wind (6-7 mph), and no precipitation with temps around freezing at 11 am. So . . . . what are people thinking about some handle time? I have tons to get done before the holidays, but if other people will meet up, I'll find some time to fly for an hour or two. Catspaw? Illescasd?

I can't fly on Saturday, but I'm going to be flying on Sunday for sure, either at Vernon Hills, or somewhere in the burbs. :D

Any of you guys up for that?

OK, I'll look at the temps in the morning. I'll also see what my son says. Since my wife is working, he'll have to come to the field with me. I'll post again in the morning.

Snow?!? I didn't know it was going to snow overnight! I was just out dropping my daughter off, and the flags I saw were not even moving. I'm thinking maybe later . . . .
