July Club Fly: Saturday, July 19 at Northerly Island

Postby Mike » Fri, Jul 04 2008, 07:14 AM

We head further north for our club fly this month!

used to be sunday the 20th, but now it is:
Saturday, July 19 at Northerly Island
This used to be Meigs Field.
Time: as early and as late as you want. I'll say 9am to 5pm.

David Zavell told us about this place and we flew there a couple times this winter. It's a nice place to fly. It's right downtown with the lake and the cityscape making a great view no matter which way the wind blows. The former terminal is still open with air conditioning and bathrooms. Best of all--parking is free!

Click on the Maps link at the top of this page, or click here.

Basically, head out towards the Planetarium and take the road to the right once you pass the Marina. Park just past the terminal building in the parking lot.

This should be a great place to promote the club too. It's very visible and should have nice foot traffic as well as sailboat traffic :-)

Right now, it looks like I wont be able to make this one, but everyone else should go, its a great place!

Ken,

Do you think Mike meant July 20th this year or last year? Well, if it's this year, we'll be there. If it's last year, we probably won't be there. This kite flying stuff is really confusing.

Cheers,
Tom

Sorry but I will not be able to make this one. If it would have been saturday rather then sunday I could have. My nephew only has a couple of weekends left before school starts up again and wants to hit the renascence fair before heading back.

Well, I'm willing to move it to Saturday.
Anyone have a conflict with Saturday?

No problem with Saturday ... it's actually a little better than Sunday.

This weekend is problematic for me. Sun I am on at church and won't be able to get to Chicago until after 3pm. Sat Jenny works and getting a baby sitter might be difficult. I might be able to swing it though.

Hey! I wrote July. Look at first post and the title--it says July. The software doesn't update all the reply headings though. I started changing them over one at a time, but it was taking too long, so I just left it.
I guess I should start a new topic, since it the headings on the posts don't show the update correctly.
