Must. Fly.

Postby swannie » Wed, Oct 15 2014, 08:20 PM

It's been weeks (maybe months) ... anyone up for a local fly this weekend? The forecast for Saturday looks craptastic, but Sunday might have possibilities.

Hey, Swannie's back. I figured you were just flying like crazy over in Germany.

Maybe . . . . (lots of work)

Sadly, not enough. All the effort I put in bringing lots over and I think I made it out only once or twice. It was actually pretty hard to find a good spot to fly.

But you were on a BIG boat. Constant wind . . .. . all you need are short lines.

Forecast showing 14 out of the NNW on Saturday afternoon, low chance of rain. Sounds about right for St. Charles. Vented, DuKane style.

Let me double check with the Wifey, but I think it'll work out. My vented is my favorite, so... :)

Yeah, in theory I don't have time this weekend . . . . haven't checked with the wife either. But I'd like to fly one of the afternoons.

Saturday is good for me. Still looking at St Charles? I've been flying on the middle school football field lately.

I should be able to make it. What time you figure? St. Charles East Sports Complex works for me, obviously.

Fun time today. Coolish with variable winds.

My wife came out to see the action and take a few photos.

Thanks for posting. Was a pretty good day - winds were variable, but we had at least six IKEr's flying revs, and I think illescasd's (David's) kids even gave it a try as well. A pretty good turnout for a day a bit on the cold side. We had some fun flying figure 8s and even managed a couple balls and some flying to the edges with a few people. No major "macrame" events.

Out on the field - swannie (Brian), tmadz (Todd), basicbill (Bill) plus wife, illescasd (David) plus wife & kids & A.D, and zero1199 (Say), and me.

On the plus side - there was some discussion of resurrecting the sewing session this winter. No date, but we did discuss some options for places in the Plainfield or Aurora areas.
