Too bad it's the same day that 180Go! will be at the Monee festival. Otherwise, I could drop the wife off at the Oakbrook mall while I flew. Maybe next year the dates won't conflict. Though there's a lot of Illinois festivals in April, so there will always be conflicts I guess.

Plus I think it is the same day as Wheaton . . . which is the hometown fest for me . . .

Hey Jeff please update the festivals page!

Yep, it's the same day as the Wheaton event, & being a Wheatonian,,,, What a nice conflict to have however.

Hi Alex, unless you're doing power kites, 5-10mph should be good wind. 5 is easier with more experience, but 10 is always good :)
Are any club members going to be at Oakbrook?

I'm not going to be there due to Wheaton being same date / time (and kid activities conflict with the festivals also). Wind forecast looks like 8-10 mph out of the north for Wheaton tomorrow.
