Possible Indiana Dunes flying - 7/5 or 7/7

Postby goestoeleven » Mon, Jul 01 2013, 09:50 PM

So there's a chance that I will be at Indiana Dunes either the 5th or the 7th, and there's also a chance I will bring some kites. We're thinking about spending a couple nights away from home for the long weekend, and we might stop by the beaches for a bit. I know this is very non-committed . . . . but we really haven't settled on what we want to do yet and we're keeping an eye on the weather. However, I wanted to give some folks the heads up in case you might want to get together for some (unplanned) flying. I'll try to give at least 24-48 hours notice . . . .

P.S. I might also try to fly at Grand Haven or Saugatuck on the 5th or the 6th . . . but I'm pretty sure I won't be allowed to fly all day, for three or four days. If we go to Saugatuck, I'll have some free time as my wife will be visiting the arts & crap craft stores . . . .

I would be interested. I have to work on the 5th, but could make it up for some afternoon flying.

After back-to-back weekend trips to northeastern Wisconsin for kite festivals, the lovely wife and I are looking forward to a weekend at home, so I'm out.
I decided I needed a signature line, so I wrote this.

Happy 4th of July everybody!

I don't believe we'll be at the Indiana Dunes tomorrow. We are probably going to head a bit further north on Friday, so that makes the 7th the date we'll possibly be at the Dunes. I'll try to remember to post here on the 6th if I'm headed to the Dunes on the 7th.

I looked at the forecast last night, said wind from the south, so I am a bit concerned, since the dunes are south if the beach and might block the breeze. Plus the kids might have some "beach fatigue"

We might stay up north. If we decide on the dunes I will post again.
