New Member In Western Suburbs

Postby RevJB » Tue, Jun 02 2009, 04:52 PM

Hello IKE,

I've been flying a Hawaiian Spin-Off as my favorite for a long time. Nothing organized, just flying at local fields. My teenage son started flying my Spin-Off and convinced me we should get a Revolution 1.5 about two months ago. He has learned very quickly, joined IKE and is revkidChris. I'm slowly getting rid of bad habits and fully converting to the dark side. I thought it's time for me to join IKE as well.

I've been reading the forums for weeks and I met a great group of IKE/180 Go members at the Oswego and Decatur festivals. I had a blast flying a borrowed "screen-door" highly vented Rev 1.5 in the 30+ mph winds at Decatur.

My thanks to all the IKE memebers I've already met for how friendly and helpful they are to new fliers.
:thanks: :up:

My son and I usually fly at the Central Park soccer fields at Jorie Blvd and Kensington Rd in Oak Brook. If others are interested in flying there, please contact us.

We will be there. Chris has finals this week and can't wait to fly. We missed Pontiac and Milwaukee and need another fix.

:welcome1:

I'm with you on the needing another fix bit - I've been desperately searching for an open space near my home... *grin* The City of Evanston is not cooperating, though. Lack of foresight on the part of the founding fathers, I think. Building all those houses and putting in a university. *snort* and not leaving a single place big enough to fly a kite....

:P
