Hello to all my midwest friends.
I´m going to be in the Chicagoland area from June 2 - 5.
I see from the festival side of things there are 2 events that weekend. Which one will most be attending? I´d like to get in on the action!
I have some work to do in between flying of course but it is mostly evening or early morning work. I hate when work gets in the way of a good time!!!!!
Hope to hear back from some of you and then see you guys next weekend. Til then......CYA!

Rich! Good to hear from you (and sorry to hear about DLC).

I'm probably going to go to Naperville on Sunday, as it's 20 minutes from home and Glenview's more like an hour (or more) away. However, plans may change based on wind and weather . . . .

Sorry Rich, I'll be at the Cabo International Kite Fiesta down in San Jose del Cabo. You'll notice that it's not a festival, but a fiesta ... kind of explains how laid back the guys are for this get together. You and Ben would fit in quite well.

Cheers,
Tom

I'll be sticking close to home as Milwaukee has it's "Family Kite Festival" this weekend... hopefully others will rhyme in here regarding other events BUT I must say that Milwaukee is pretty 'fest-scheduled' and the opportunity to actually fly may find other venues more condusive... (unless enough of 'us' show-up here and have our own fly... as there's plenty of room for both the fest and individual fun!) ...Sure would be great to see you!!!!
:revspin:

Thinking of you! :loveit:

Yeah, I think we are all jealous. Isn't there some hurricane warning in Mexico?

It is a blast there. Very laid back. Lots and lots of beach on which to fly. Good winds. Great chance to fly Revs in amongst the show kites.

Tried to talk Ben into it for this year ... maybe you'll be better at talking Ben into coming.

Cheers,
Tom
