Another informal fly this weekend perhaps? Better wind forecast appears to be on Saturday. Although cloudy. But either day is OK with me.

We need to make sure our new IKE member, Ron, from South Elgin knows that he and all others are welcome.

I can't make it either day, unfortunately. Too much going on this weekend.

Thanks Steve.

Xay also mentioned last week the possibility of flying at the park near his home.

Yeah, me too. Only I didn't fly. I made four sets of lines instead. Now I got kites, I got lines, I got handles. Now the weather will get crappy, right?

I might get out and fly tomorrow.

You're a heck of a mid-vent salesman, Xay.

Let me know if you want some company. I can meet you at Busse. Or wherever.

I have no access to a vehicle tomorrow. I can fly if you can pick me up. Post up here, or call me at 224.227.0638

Looks like we are on for Busse Woods this afternoon. Probably from around 12:30. I've got to finish up today at about 4 pm.

Anyone else want to come out, please do.

Four Rev flyers at Busse Woods today, Bill, David, Xay and I. Had a great time. Thanks for the ride Bill. Thank you Xay and David for joining us. It was good to knock the winter rust off.

Full and Extra vents were the order of the day, and of course, Bill took some photos that he'll probably post up here. Wind was up and down constantly -- very typical for this area this time of year.

P.S. I'm missing a set of 120' LPG lines that I probably left somewhere last year. If anyone picked them up and wonders who's they are, uh, that be me.
