In the chute - Jamestown, ND

Postby goestoeleven » Mon, Jun 06 2016, 10:43 PM

Coming up this weekend - 180Go! will be in Jamestown, ND. I know that's a bit far for most IKErs, but I'll try to remember to take some pics. Hope you all have a great week/weekend flying around the local area.

Where is the festival held? Is it at the kite flying field west of and almost right next to the airport?

It's held at another park across town. Not the regular kite field.

But you're not going to give away the exact location because . . . .

Because I don't remember the name of the park, and I'm answering this thread from my phone, sorry. You planning to go to Jamestown?

Possibly, if I don't have to work on Saturday. I won't know until late Friday. I won't go for just one day -- too long a drive.

Well, it's a really long drive, especially for one person. It is a great festival, but it's a really long drive (which I've never done). You can fly into Fargo or Jamestown, but I doubt there are cheap airfares this late. Did I mention that it's pretty far?
