Landkiting Wednesday July 28th

Postby Like To Kite » Tue Jul 27, 2010 2:34 pm

If there is enough wind tomorrow there is a group of us heading out for some landkiting!

I would like to get there for a kite maybe around 2 or 3 and then I am teaching a lesson there from 6-8. We are heading to this location:

Mike and I are bringing all of our landkiting gear. There should be a couple of buggies, a landboard and a few Ozone kites to use. Please bring any suitable gear that you have too.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

P.S. If it turns out really windy we'll see you on the water!

Watch out for the day wrecker "you can`t fly kites here" guys.
I`ve been run out of busse woods trying to snow kite there a few times.
Maybe a different tolerance in the summer.
Good luck

Thanks for the heads up. That's really too bad. I thought it was a known and established kiting location. Maybe we'll give it a try and keep Washington Park as an alternate location if we get kicked out of Busse Woods.

Here's the link to Washington Park. It's a nice big open space. We've always been very welcome to kite there.

I think that field may be within the 5 mile zone from the boarder of the airport. I think it's FAA part 101. Yup

101.13 Operating limitations.

(4) Within five miles of the boundary of any airport.

Come to think of it I violated the heck out of this snow kiting this winter. :)

Although I'm getting ready for my trip, I'll be happy if you can give me a ring when you'll be there, if it's early enough, I mite join for a couple of hours....

Hey Dutch, you should be good with that after our session on Sunday :lol:

Postponing this adventure until next week. Maybe next Tuesday or Wednesday will be the go depending on conditions.

Conditions look marginal for today. My student postponed. My car needs alternator and radiator work :(

Thank you Mike for helping me with my car today!

Looking forward to kiting with everyone next week!
