Jeff,

I know that with the new (slightly used) baby, you don't get out and fly much. So you might check this out as a refresher.

Cheers,
Tom

Sunny, warm and windy in Illinois today . . . plus the chance to get to meet a whole bunch of you. It does not get much better on an October Saturday. It was nice to put faces with names (& avatars). My son and I had a great time today! Hope to get to fly again with the club soon.

Best :clubfly: club fly I've ever attended :up:

Great friends, Great winds, Great temperature, Great newcomers.

Flew from start to stop and didn't bother to break for lunch. Flew the most team I've ever flown and appreciated all the coaching.

Played with threaded kites and learned how to launch with one line at ground level and one up and over everybody else's. :-D

Met plenty of newcomers. Amazed at how quickly they learned the Rev. The pull of the Dark Side was particularly strong that day.

If anyone took photos or video, please post them here. Just use the sixth icon from the left on the bottom row to insert an image or the filmstrip or YouTube icon towards the end of the first row for video.

I will echo all the above statements. An absolutely great turnout, and a great day of flying. I think I am starting to get the hang of the team flying. It was great seeing so many new faces. Here are a couple photos, more on my facebook page.

Mikey,

Is there a link for non-Facebook users to see the photos?

All others,

I thought I heard someone behind us say they were videotaping some of it. Anyone know who was recording it?

John, I think you're the last holdout on Facebook. You don't have to post anything on Facebook, so no loss of privacy, but being a member will make seeing the photo albums easier.
