Club Fly, Saturday September 6

Club Fly, Saturday September 6

Who's up for a club fly?
I'm thinking a southern location. Pontiac or Bourbonnais. Or maybe Champaign.

If we do Champaign, pizza is on me.

At Zahnd Park, here.
There's a new off-ramp that's not the maps yet. Take the Curtis Road exit from the 57 freeway. Turn right, and right again.

My vote is easily bought ... for some pizza, I'd vote for Champaign. Of course Pontiac would work also ...

Welcome back!

Yup, the fly will be in Champaign.
Usual time, 9 to 5.

Be sure to check back here on Friday night in case things change due to weather.

Have fun. I wish I could be there. Too much travel to be able to take more time away from the family. Just returned from Maryland last night, and I'm off to Arizona early Monday morning for the week.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

hey y'all,
I don't trust the weather forecasts, however....

Saturday the forecast is for 6mph and Sunday is for 10mph.
A 6mph forecast often means no wind. We can work on no wind/indoor flying techniques or we can reschedule for Sunday.

Can you guys come on Sunday instead of Saturday?

The forecast changed and now both days are forecast to have 5-8mph winds.
Let's just stay with the original plan.

Club Fly
Saturday
9-5
Zahnd Park

We invited a bunch of my aunts over to our place for tomorrow!... so i can't make it. (Our place, with all the food, will be invaded by ants, i'm sure.)
