Club Fly - August 6th?

Postby goestoeleven » Sun, Jul 17 2011, 01:55 PM

Anyone interested in a club fly somewhere on August 6th? I am . . . . so I figured I'd post this up. I want to avoid Mux's July 30th Quad Cities thing in case people are planning to go there. July 23rd/24th doesn't work for me, so August 6th is the next weekend day that works out. Here's my constraint - I have to be back in the Chicago area by evening as my sister in law is flying into Ohare (which also means that the 7th is probably out for me). So, that puts a slight geographic limit on my travels for the 6th. Location suggestions -
  • Indiana of Michigan Dunes
  • Northerly Island
  • Busse Woods
  • Kankakee (Darkspark & Shari's field)
  • Monee (reservoir)
Also interesting . . . I just browsed Google satellite imagery for parks / forest preserves in the south Chicago 'burbs and this location caught my eye. Maybe someone down south can check it out one day. Looks like there's a model / RC airplane field (but also maybe a lot of open grassland outside their flying area). South Green Belt Forest Preserve

It is a little bit away, but you can probably count me in. I will confirm when it gets a little closer.

Can't do that day. My daughter has a play.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

I'm sorry that I can't make it either. The in-laws are coming and Rose is graduating with her Masters Degree at Northwestern (yay Rose!)

Guys, I think we just found our location for the club fly . . . Northwestern! We'll need those short line sets, and watch out for people! But seriously, congratulations!! (now GBTW and finish that thesis).

I've never flown at Northwestern, but I've fished there. If we ever see prevailing winds again in this area we can fly over the lake. I'm in.

I'm joking about flying at Northwestern . . . at least I think I am . . . besides, who wants to fight the traffic. Let's see who else is in when we get closer to the date, and then we'll pick a location.

Bumping the thread up again . . . so far we have me, Captain, Darkspark (possible), and Makatakam. Did anyone get a chance to check out the South Green Belt Forest Preserve? Captain - where's your Improv group? Downtown?

At this point, it looks like it will be a little cooler on Saturday, so if that holds true, I should be in. If it is at Northerly Island, I might be able to get my better half to come along.

My improv group is around lincoln park (ComedySportz - 929 W. Belmont). I do have the car , so I can carry some people with me if someone needs a ride. I am ready for anywhere. Just busy till 3.

I flew at Limestone Park in Kankakee yesterday. Intended to check it out on the way back home but got sidetracked by fisshing & fossil hunting. I'll try to take a look at it Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Looks promising from satellite photos.

We can't make the fly, but couldn't pass up the opportunity to say

Congratulations Rose!

on your Masters degree.
