Just a little under the weather this week so I don't think I can make it out anywhere this weekend.;(

See you at the regal theaters. What time?

Well, that's a good question ... I don't know what time things are supposed to get started down there ... meet at 8:00? That would put us down there at about 10-ish, which looks to be about the time things are warming up (weather wise). I can do earlier though...

From the sound of it, looks like it'll just be two of us representing the DuKane Chapter of IKE? We'll have to demonstrate how to fly DuKane Style ... assuming there's enough wind. :)

10 sounds like a good time. And if there's not much wind, you can learn/practice light wind techniques :)

We will be there also.
I am going to try and check out a vape shop by the university. I need to find their hours to see if I need to go early or go after we fly.
See you all tomorrow!

Saw the pictures and video of the fox ... wild, they're usually more timid then that.

Steve & I had a great time. I asked for wind, & I got it. I got all sorts of wind. Wind to the left, wind to the right, wind disappearing, wind coming back with a vengeance. I'm ready to do it again.

Absolutely! I thought you were out sick. It's actually a Regal theater. It's on the corner of dihel and Winfield road. You can't miss it. There's a red robin, rock bottom, and a few other restaurants there as well.

Just wrapped up. Nice say of flying with everyone, although the wind was a bit light and variable.

(we did meet at 8am)
