Quick Fly - Saturday, November 28 - Chicago

Postby Jeff » Wed, Nov 25 2009, 09:05 PM

Anyone up for a fly this weekend?

Rich C. from the "Jersey Crew" on the Rev forum will be in town. I'm planning on meeting him and whomever else would like to come Saturday at Northerly Island.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

Northerly Island seems to be the the likely place to go so I'll plan on that. My time frame is likely 10 or 11 am until say 3 or 4 on both days...

Chris and I could come earlier than 10:00 if you wanted. Looks like Rich will join later.

Weather and winds look good so far.

I'm so psyched to fly with you guys Saturday! I'm likely to get there no later than 10.

Went out to the beach in front of the Drake hotel this morning to get in a little turkey day fly. Was a little wet with swirly wind but at least I can now say I flew there!!!
Happy turkey to you all.....except Jynx!!!!!! :rotfl :P
Much love to you Coleen!!!!!!! Wish you could join us Saturday.

I probably won't be quite so early. Might be closer to 11, depending on traffic and when I can get on the road.

Rich, the maps link near the top of the page shows our usual flying spots. Northerly Island is on there. The marker is at the parking lot that we park in, and then we just use the open space adjacent to that.

Do any of those not coming want to take a peak in on some live video from the field on my new fangled fancy phone that can broadcast onto the internet? :D

even picked up a real rev from David this morning (he is so cool... stopped on his way north at a rest stop at the Cheddar curtain to trade me kite for coffee... actually shipping for coffee) but I am chained to the potters wheel today... feel like one of Santa's Elves?!?!?!

I just saw Jeff's live video from Northerly Island. Pretty darn cool!
It's over now, it was just a quick test. But I'm sure he'll do it again.

I love technology. :)

We were experimenting with the live video through my phone and ustream.tv.

It was a Zen-licious day at the Milwaukee lakefront!

Unfortunately... :cry: I don't own one!
Hope you guys had a better breeze...

Better Luck Next Time!

But I did finish the electrical work at GoW Kite shop and Scott should have his new cam and weather station up, on-line, and running soon!
So... Not a total loss. :up:

Rich,

Anytime.

We will have to make this a Thanksgiving tradition. Hard to believe we were in shirtsleeves on the lakefront.

Thanks for letting me fly the Flag Rev. Awesome kite. If you get a chance, can you post the picture of the flag and the Sears Tower?

Hope to fly with you at Liberty Park some time.
