Hoosier Kitefliers Society Merritt Beck Memorial Fun Fly

Postby KiteVoice » Wed, Sep 05 2012, 08:53 AM

Sep. 8, 2012. All IKE members are invited! This is a fun fly to honor the late Indiana kite-maker Merritt Beck. People who own Merritt's kites will fly them but people will also fly all other kinds of kites, including dual and (gasp!) quad sport kites. The venue is fantastic: 1,000 acres of mowed field! Academy of Model Aeronautics, 5151 E. Memorial Dr., Muncie, IN. The event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There's no food service nearby, so pack a lunch and enjoy some Hoosier kiting hospitality!

I've flown at that field, and it is huge! What day is the fest?

LOL, can't believe I forgot to include the date. It's Sep. 8. I had planned to put the date in the topic title but exceeded the character limit and forgot to move it to the body of the message!

Mike:

If you're not going to Mots, we'd love to see you at Muncie (even though it would be about 3.5 hours of driving across Indiana to get there). Dave, you too, since it's a pretty easy drive from Dayton (we usually have a contingent from PIGS Aloft present).

7 hours round trip is a lot of driving for one day, though it is closer than Mots...
I haven't ruled it out yet though, it'd be nice to see some faces I don't see so often as well as meet some new ones.

I know that most of you are nowhere near Muncie, Indiana (with a notable Buckeye exception), but the 2013 version of this event is this Saturday. My LW and I plan to be there. Unfortunately, the current wind forecast is poor (3-5 mph). But the facility is great (a huge, flat field), so if anything will fly anywhere, it'll fly there.

Sounds great, but I will be camping with my son.
