Because You Really Can't Have Too Much Of This Good Thing...

Postby catspaw00 » Sun, Jul 26 2009, 11:31 PM

:clubfly:

If my new Rev gets here in time, I intend to go out to either Glenview or Vernon Hills for its maiden voyage this Saturday or Sunday, depending on my work schedule. I'm flexible about location (I'd even be willing to do Northerly Island, if there isn't anything preventing it), and since I'd love to have company, I figured I'd see if any of y'all were interested.

Jump in with suggestions or whatever, hey?

My kite won't be here until the weekend of the 8th. I can't count. :oops:

So I'll be flying that weekend.

Black and gold B-series vented. It will probably be here early next week, but I won't have time to go fly it right away. It's been a long time since I had something I wanted to do more than work. *grin*

If it gets here earlier than that (which it could, I've been assured), then I'll consider that a bonus. But for planning purposes, I'll try to organize a fly for the weekend of the 8th. I've been told practicing patience is a good thing.......

Yeah, I noticed that when I was checking out Jynx's photos from the weekend. Great minds... ;)

I GOT IT!!!

:revspin:

Okay, so now I've got the thing, I need to go out and fly it. Say, Sunday afternoon? I'm good for Glenview or Vernon Hills, or I'd even go as far as Jynx's home field...

:-D

*sigh* Now I have to make it through the WHOLE DAY at work, before I can go out and play... vicious circle, hey? Can't buy more :revspin: without the moola......

I wish I had time to come out this weekend, but I'm busy.

But actually, one of the things I'm busy with is I'll be at the Botanic Garden with the family on Sunday where the Chicago Fire kite team will be performing. There's not really room for other sport kiters, but it's a nice show.

Yeah, I figured I'd hit that sometime over the weekend, too. At least you'll be out enjoying kites, even if there isn't room for flying...

No you can't...and as a result, I've got a new good thing on order. Don't really need it, but it's purty and I've been wanting it. No new shoes for Kayla for a while. :lol:

It's looking like I'm not getting any bites on this coming weekend, so I'm definitely willing to drive south - where were you guys thinking?

And Jeff, what did you order??

Well according to Google Maps, it's 160 miles from Champaign to Evanston.
That puts Bourbonnais / Kankakee at half way.

We could meet at Limestone park or the Bourbonnais soccer field. Both are on the map.

Anyone want to meet there? Is Sunday best for you, Wendy?

Driving that far, Saturday works better for me - I can stay out and play longer. :up: But I can _try_ to be disciplined if more peeps want to get together on Sunday...

Jeff: cool!
