November 29 - 2nd annual Busse Woods Black Flyday -

Postby goestoeleven » Tue, Nov 12 2013, 06:26 PM

So . . . several people have expressed interest in flying at Busse Woods on November 29th, Black Flyday. I may not make it if we decide to go somewhere(depends on what the family decides), but if I'm in town, I'm planning to fly. :up:

I'm tentative, but hopeful at this point.

Tentative as well, but I'd much rather fly than shop. The whole Thxgiving shopping thing disgusts disturbs me.

I agree, the whole shopping frenzy is disturbing. I am looking good for Black Flyday.

That would be quite a drive for me and we have college football tic that day, anyway. Love the Black Flyday moniker, though!

I am a no for this Friday. I hope to sneak out sometime this weekend though, so if you're available Swannie, maybe we can fly for a little while.

Right now, the forecast is showing 2-3 mph wind and a high of 34f for Friday. No wind chill, but not much wind.

I won't be able to fly on Friday, cleaning up from Thanksgiving, but I think I should be able to get out Saturday or Sunday.

We seem to have several votes for Saturday or Sunday instead of Friday. Looking at the wind forecast, it looks like Saturday will have better wind. Is there anybody who can't make it if we switch the day to Saturday? BTW, although Saturday appears the best weather wise, I'm not certain I can make it as I haven't checked with the wife, and I know my son has a meeting that I need to attend for at least a couple hours/until noon in the morning, possibly lasting into the afternoon.

I'm in the same exact same spot as Steve. I'll know more later today. BTW, I just came in, and if we dress properly, we'll be fine.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!!!!

Checked with the wife & she reminded me she is working on Saturday, plus my son's event runs from probably 10am to probably 3pm, so I am probably not able to fly on Saturday. I can probably fly tomorrow/Friday (if there's any wind).

There is little to no wind :(. I am taking my kid to Woodfield, so I may bring a kite to Busse Woods anyway. I am trying to avoid Woodfield personally at all costs. :
