Scissors are quicker, however, they tend to negatively affect the integrity of line...

littered the beach for hours on end with rip stop nylon!! Amazing we didn't get ticketed. Sure did fill the beach with some pretty colors but we Could have used a few more KNOTS of anti gravity!

Contemplating it. I ended up working most of this weekend, so next weekend might be freer. Let's keep an eye on the forecast (and I'll start lobbying the wife).

The one thing I know at this point is that I have to be home, probably by 4:30 pm or so on Saturday. So that means it's a bit tougher for me to do someplace far from Wheaton. I'll check with my wife about it tonight.

Steve, how about the middle school out here by me and swannie? Empty on Saturday and plenty of room. Also, maybe the east side sports complex in St Charles again. There are probably sports games goin on though.

I might be able to do that. I'll have to be home by 4:30 (or maybe even a little earlier), so I'll have to be done by 3:45 or 4 pm. It would be great to get out and fly with some other people. I went out for a very short bit (local park) last Sunday in light winds, but did not get in much handle time.
