October club fly?

So . . . wondering if anyone else is thinking about a club fly? The last weekend of October is out for me (camping). Not sure about the coming weekend of the 12th/13th - I may be working a good chunk of Saturday / Sunday (requiring internet access to monitor some server work). Haven't talked to the wife about the weekend of the 19th/20th, either . . . . . but I know I need to be home late afternoon / evening of the 19th.

So, are you saying you can't make it to the October club fly if we have one?

No, I want to have a club fly . . . . but I'm challenged for time. Downstate is probably impossible for me next weekend, but I might be able to pull off a few hours relatively local. The next weekend I probably can't be downstate on Saturday, but I might be able to do a club fly further afield on Sunday. And actually, now that I think of it, I might be able to do something local to Chicago metro on Sunday the 27th as I should be back from camping (at Starved Rock) late morning on the 27th.

Well . . . I just wanted to get the conversation started. Somebody needed to post up some suggestions so y'all have something to talk about! Maybe something gets planned, and I can make it :up: . Maybe something gets planned and I can't :( . But at least someone will be flying!

Wow, I looked at my October calendar.... Because it's late minute, at least for Chicagolanders, how about Busse Woods this weekend? It's somewhat central. As I'm running off my wish list, the earlier the better as my afternoons disappear on me...

I can do it this month, but not this weekend. After that I'm pretty open.

Need more time on the rev. Picking up a new kite in Michigan City this weekend, Finally getting a Barbara Meyer Design and was thinking about Washington beach, lots of room there, I-Dunes would be good too.

It's on a case by case basis, but I'll have much more flexibility.

Would like to make one, but very difficult this month. Will respond when a definite date has been decided on.

Well, looks like Trigger has picked a location! Unfortunately, I can't make it that far this weekend. If I can get out to fly, Busse is probably as far as I can go (and that's only if I have a big break in work while waiting for a server to finish up some jobs). If I can make it somewhere, it would probably be the middle of the day on Saturday, and it will have to be pretty local.
