Sounds good to me, I am in. As long as it is a bit cooler than today.

Haven't talked to the wife, but maybe . . .
Sunday the 8th might work, and/or/also maybe 14th/15th. 22nd doesn't work for me (but don't let that stop you).

EDIT:
Just checked with the wife, and my time might be somewhat constrained Sunday the 8th / afternoon. David has to go to a birthday party for one of his friends, and my daughter is in a matinee performance of a local kid's play. Plus I want to send my wife away for a night (or two) by herself since she's been very nice about all my kite flying . . . .

Of course . . . Sunday morning is open-ish and so is part of the afternoon if it's someplace pretty local to me like Redhawk park. I can look for my lost :( ground stake there (which I hope is in the garage somewhere but more likely fell out of the bag in the 50 feet between the car and the field at Michigan City).

It looks like it will still be hot on Saturday, with Sunday cooling off a bit.

It's too hot right now for me. Maybe the weekend of the 14th-15th?

That sounds great! Do you want to start a new thread for that? ;)

That's an interesting idea. I doubt I could convince my wife to go to a fun fly in Illinois but I might be able to talk her into a Dunes visit. Of course, we'd only bring dualies, so we'd stick out like a proverbial sore thumb!
I decided I needed a signature line, so I wrote this.

Maybe you can learn me up on some dualie stuff so I can be more confused on more kites. :)

I'm camping with the boy scouts at warren dunes the 14th and 15th and bringing my kites. If you do a club fly it's not far away for me. We come back on Sunday moring, but if you do something out there I could hang around.

KiteVoice, I fly dualies too. I just got a Hypnotist to go with my Quantum. I would be grateful to learn any info from to you to improve my flying.

Just looked at the weather forecast, and it's looking relatively cooler (82) and windy on Sunday the 8th. Anybody interested in getting out to fly? Rose . . . there's no reason you can't fly ALL the days you are free :-D

Let's plan on the 15th, it looked like that got the most positive responses.
Chicago or Kankakee?

What time will you be out there? I'm not sure if I can make it due to kid's stuff in the afternoon, but maybe.

Don't really know. Give me a call when you're headed out (if you can go), and if I'm not already there I'll head out too.

Giving this one a kick.

I like the idea. I may be able to do Kankakee, but I won't know until we get closer to the weekend and I find out what constraints exist for me. That's a long way of saying "I have to check with the wife."

If I can make it, maybe I'll bring the rainbows and the big delta along with a rev or two . . .

I would like to be there as well, but I can't commit yet as I don't have clearance from the wife. I also may have to work.

Everything seems so much better when the sky is filled with beautiful colors.
