I was planning to go. It depends on the weather.

Anyone else?

I was there today with my son David and one of his friends, and (from IKE) Xay and Mark (plus a whole bunch of WI kiters, Chicago Fire, Fire & Ice, Blues Bros, etc.). Started out cloudy with wind, then cleared up and the wind stayed pretty good all day. A bit bumpy, but almost the whole day on my full vent. Can't complain one bit - I had a lot of flying time. 14K+ steps according to Fitbit. :up:

Might go back tomorrow. :shock:

Had another great day on Sunday. Two really nice days in a row. Mostly flew the shook 75% (mid vent). Even flew some single line stuff . . . .
