Maybe . . . Sunday 11/9

Postby goestoeleven » Thu, Nov 06 2014, 11:20 AM

OK, weather looks cold, but with southwest winds at 14 on Sunday.

Not sure I can fly (my son may have a FLL meeting in the afternoon). Or, if I fly, it might have to be someplace like the field at the Danada Farm Forest Preserve offices off of Naperville road. That field is pretty good with southwest winds.

I am thinking about it . . . .

I might be able to sneak out. Have to check. I need to get some things done that I've been putting off.

I should be able to make it. Danada Forest Preserve is OK by me.

Bill, I'll post again if I can get out to fly. The field is behind the Forest Preserve office building off of Naperville Road.

There's a slight chance I'll drive up to Milwaukee for their Veteran's fly on Saturday. If I go to Milwaukee, I probably won't be able to get there before 12:30 or so due to a dentist appointment in the morning. If I go to Vets, I probably won't fly again on Sunday.

Steve,

The field is south of Butterfield Road and west of Naperville Road? Looking at this map: http://www.dupageforest.com/Danada_Map.aspx

(That would be a reasonably easy drive for Mark down 355 to Butterfield. Hint hint.)

It's behind the forest preserve offices here.

West of Naperville Road, south of Butterfield. It's the oval field to the left of the parking lot. It's shaped like that because there's a grass horse track around the field.

It would take Mark less time time to go all the way to Naperville on 88.

OK keep us advised. If you can't, I'm willing to meet somewhere else if anyone else is interested.

Steve... gotta plan for Danada? If not I'll be at St. Charles. Or Busse if anyone wants to meet there.

Bill,

Sorry I did not post. I will be at my son's first Lego league for a little bit. I might get out in a bit for about an hour, but not 100 percent certain.

No problem. I only went out for about a half hour, and the wind was not very good (very variable). Ended up spending more time at my son's FLL meeting.

Six days to the team clinic at Montrose!!
