Re: fly time Saturday ?

Yahoo weather says it will be 51 degrees and overcast. They are wrong 85% of the time, so the chances are good it will be 75 degrees and sunny, or 23 degrees and snowing.

I'm not sure that we ever met, but I'll miss him anyway. I would have liked to fly with him someday in this life. Smooth winds to you, Rich.

Steve, it won't be a belated new year until 2018. New Year's Day on the other hand . . . . .

It's inevitable, you know......teacher.......apple.......big apple........the progression is only natural, and expected.

Good luck to both of you on your new venture. Will you be flying tomorrow at Montrose?

Re: Flying Saturday 10/22 or Sunday 10/23?

It was good to see and fly with the Busse regulars, Steve Anderson and his wonderful wife and his Dad (84 years old) and his son David Anderson, David Illescas and AdventureDog, Edmond Dragut, Bill Meier, Karl Kitemeister (whose real last name I can't remember), and a couple of new guys, Shawn, and ...

Re: August 20, Pontiac club fly

Really great photos and video. The time lapse is hilarious! It would be cool to compress the entire day into a two-minute video, wide angle, showing the whole field and all kites and fliers. Shari's Cody looks even better in person. Those of you who missed it, well, I guess you missed it. Good day w...

Re: Finally made it to IKE

It's nice to have you on the IKE forum also. IKE is not limited to Illinois flyers, although it is based here. You'll probably recognize my avatar from the other kite forums, and will probably see a few other ones that are familiar. Some of the club members make it to Wildwood each year, so you may ...
