Club Fly - downstate - Sunday 2/10--canceled :(

Postby goestoeleven » Tue, Feb 05 2013, 11:11 PM

To all - if the weather cooperates, 180Go! is planning to get together in Champaign at Zahnd park on Sunday for some practice prior to the Clear Lake festival on the 15th. If anyone else can make it, we can have a club fly! It would be nice to see some of the downstate flyers (or anyone else that can make it for the day).

Stay tuned - I'll watch the weather and post a go/no-go decision on Saturday or early Sunday morning. The weather right now is not looking too promising (possible thunderstorms), but maybe it will change as we get closer to the weekend. Maps link (above in the menu bar) has the location of the park.

Steve, chill with the negativity man. It's still 5 days away. We all know weathermen aren't that good. BTW, what's the travel time from here?

Travel time is probably two hours one way for me. I think its about 155 miles for me.

Well that calculates out at about 80 mph... I'll give my buddies a heads-up! :raspberry: :rotfl

Now Jynx, I am just going to travel at the same speed as the rest of the traffic. 75 is pretty much standard on the interstates in Illinois. I had one of your buddies tell me that 73 was fine but 78 was too much. And that was in a 55 zone, believe it or not.

Let's hope that same cop is working Sunday!

If not...and you get stopped... Just drop my name... You'll get two for the price of one! :-P

That doesn't sound like a good deal in this case!

Anyone planning to come, keep an eye on this thread. The weather is not looking to good, so we won't fly if it's raining

I would love to. I might even have a business excuse to come down, but I don't think I can convince my wife.

The hourly forecast has an over 80% chance of rain and winds in the 20+mph range, so I guess we'll have to cancel Sunday's fly. :(

Too bad. It seems my schedule is completely opposite of all the good flying weather. I can't wait for warmer weather and longer days to be able to fly more.

i noticed the days getting a little longer :) I had about 4-5 hrs of flying in the last 3days! really enjoyed the winds. one day was vented Rev and the other was with the zephyr... until a line broke and I thought the lower spreader...Guess it couldn't hold up to AC/DC and my spectacular tricking!!! luckily I just ordered a few linesets and they should be here wednesday.

anyway.. looking forward to the next gathering!
