IKE at Community Events

Postby elginharvestmarket » Thu, Mar 21 2013, 01:16 PM

New to this forum but thought I would see if Elgin area IKE folks would be interested in flying at our farmers market this summer for some free fun and publicity? I met one of your members as they were flying on a clear windy day off of Summit Street/Route 58 here in Elgin and he mentioned to check out your forum and see what festivals are in the area.

We're always up for fun (at least I am). We can probably schedule a club fly for some weekend in Elgin. Membership here is pretty informal, so you never know who might show up, but we wouldn't be here if we didn't fly kites pretty often.

That said, the first question is about your location. Can you tell us the location so that we can see what kind of space you have for flying kites?

I don't know where the market is, Had a lot of people stop by and talk to me but they never said anything about it.
All I'm trying to do is get people to join Ike so I have someone here in Elgin to fly kite with.

Say, if you do get an official invitation, maybe I can sneak up for a few hours. Not too far from you.

i'm looking for events and sites in the Chicago area to demonstrate kite flying and give away modified sled kites, single line. No stunts, just simple up in the air enjoyment. I also can give away the instructions for the kites. I do not want to compete with kite vendors. I've demonstrated kite flying and given away 50 pocket sled kites in the Oak Park area this April. Let me know of possibilites nearby. Carl Ek, Oak Park, Illinois 708.383.4603

Carl -

If you haven't seen it yet, there's a calendar link in the upper right hand side of this IKE web page, and there are festivals listed there.

Thanks for what you are doing for kite flying! Getting kids interested in kite flying is great. I wish there were more people like you out there trying to promote our hobby. I tell people to join IKE, and to "go fly a kite." I try to get people interested in flying revolutions, but I'm not doing anything like handing out tons of sled kites to kids. That's just terrific!
