OK, let's try this again - maybe we'll get one more club fly in before the winter arrives. How about a club fly on Saturday, November 17th. Location - downtown Chicago - either the beach at Montrose, or perhaps Northerly Island?

I am game.
While sneaking in a session whenever i can at the expense of everything I have to get done, I always learn and have fun (alot) with others. Busse woods might be more of a central located place for everyone. Adventure Dog is game as well.

Yeah . . . Busse would be more centrally located, but Mike and Rose will be downtown that weekend, and I haven't flown at Montrose for a year, so it would be fun to get back there. Maybe we can "sneak" in a local (Red Hawk or Busse) fly between now & then. Another option that zero1199 (Say) suggested is East Side park in St. Charles. He flies there during the week, when he has a long lunch break.

In that case, Montrose works just as well.

I will see if I can make that date. I haven't been downtown in forever and this would be the perfect reason to go.

Say, it's Tmadz (Todd). You work in St Charles? I am close to there usually. Do you fly at the soccer fields near the entrance? Maybe we can fly together sometime.

Hey Todd - Good to hear from you again.

I think Say lives in Elgin, but he told me he flies on the fields near Dupage airport sometimes during the week if he gets a long lunch. That's about a 20 minute drive for me, so it's probably not realistic for lunch most days. I might be able to get there after work in the summer (when the days are longer) or for a weekend fly. Sometimes on Saturday afternoon I fly for an hour at Dunham Woods when my daughter is taking lessons, which is a bit north of there at Army Trail and Dunham road (which joins up with Kirk north of North Ave / 64).

OK, I have tentative approval from the wife to get out and fly this weekend for a while (either 11/3 or 11/4). Who is game to fly, when and where?

11-3 or 11-4 I can fly If someone can pick me up. May I suggest Busse Woods? Lots of room, better than average winds and convenient shopping very close by at Woodfield.

Good point, ditto. Sorry I did not read up thread before posting . . . and sorry for the expense but glad she is OK.

Ok, so far we have Say, Mark, and me available Saturday, and David on Sunday. Let's tentatively say Busse Woods, Saturday, and noon-ish for the time. I'll post again if I can get there earlier. I can pick Mark up on the way there, and maybe Say can drop Mark off on the way home. If I leave early, I might be able to fly again on Sunday for an hour or two (local) - that's why it probably makes more sense for Say to drop Mark off at the end of the fly.

Mark - PM me with your address / cross streets, and a number to text you when I start to get close. Say - let us know if that works for you.

Well . . . weather is not so good, Say can't fly today, and there's not much wind in Schaumburg or Wheaton, so we are scrubbing today's fly. We might try again for tomorrow.

Unfortunately . . . this means yard work for me.
