FYI for those of you not always on FB. Steve Nichol posted about possibly flying at Vets on Sunday. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get out to fly this weekend (or at least not all the way up in MKE), but thought I'd post in case some people might be interested. I'll see what I might be able to fit in as it gets closer to the weekend. We're starting to run short on warm weather . . .

Isn't the Veterans Honor Fly on November 7? Or is this something in addition?

I think it's in addition. I think there's no scheduled Wisconsin Kiters event, so Steve Nichol is posting up on FB to see if people want to fly.

I see. I have been planning on going up there on the 7th (weather permitting) if Jnyx had not yet departed for Florida.

If there's gonna be a group of Rev flyers up there on the 1st I can probably do that instead. (If non-Wisconsin Kite Club flyers are invited.)

Hi, it's Steve Nicol from the WKC. This would be a fun fly, open to all. This is in addition to the Veterans Honor Fly taking place on 11/7. There is another page on Facebook called Milwaukee Lakefront Kite Flyers. That's where the discussion originated. If you'd like to join the group, I'd be happy to add you. Jynx has indicated she'll be there this Sunday and she is sticking around for the Honor Fly. By the way, basicbill, even if this would have been a club fly, non-club members are always welcome to join us!

Thanks. Put me down as a definite maybe. Perhaps I can grab Mark on the way there. (If it's already not too cool for him. ;) )

I'm going to cross the cheddar curtain this morning. Looks like a nice day up there.

It was a really nice day. I went as well (kind of a last minute decision once Sue was up). Not a lot of wind, but enough to fly. Casual flying all day, and a bunch of good folks from the Wisconsin Kiters, most of whom I probably won't see until Clear Lake (or later).

The Wisconsin Kiters are a very welcoming group. Beautiful location to fly.
