Club Fly: Saturday, June 28 at Pontiac,IL

Postby Mike » Wed, Jun 11 2008, 02:07 PM

How about a club fly / picnic?
On June 28, in Pontiac.
From around 9 am to 5 pm.

It's the same place as the festival. Click on "maps" at the top of the page, or click here.

Rather than organize a potluck, I'm gonna say bring your own picnic, drinks and games.
You can fly kites or play games.
If Ken makes it, maybe he'll bring his bean-bag toss and bolo toss toys?

I'll bring some less common quad-line kites for people to play with. The Rev backtracker, and some non-rev quadlines.

Why Pontiac?
It's a wide open field, and it has a bathroom.
It is within a 90 minute drive for most members.
We have several members in Pontiac.

I'd like everyone to come, even if it is a bit of a drive.
Next month we'll have one up in the Chicago area and the Pontiac area folks will have to drive.

OK, I'll be there, maybe Babb.
Who else will be there?

This is a good time to hangout and get some flying tips since we wont be performing.

Chime in if you're coming.

Drachenschwanz, are you gonna scare the prisoners with your wind organs?

I will be in Lincoln City, OR at their Summer Kite Fest. The drive would be prohibitive.

Won't be able to make that one.

We'll be in Grand Haven for the sand sculpture and art fest.

Oh, and maybe a little kite flying on the beach. :roll:

That's usually just an expression, but down in this part of the state there's been a lot of flooding...

i'll cremate all of you (carnivores) at bolo or bag tossing; the prisoners will laugh!

We had a kite festival today, for our handicapped students, at a local park in Dwight. It was a lot of fun! The weather was perfect. i flew a lot of SLKs!
