    It was amazing. Pilot cancelled people for our group, but only 5 of our group showed. He lost money doing us a favor, expecting 16 of us. I hope people update their RSVP's accordingly in the future when they decide they aren't coming. Sorry you got lost Dan.

    I am running late, will be there at about 930

  • Elizabeth

    FYI our group has priority tomorrow. :-) Rik seems to be canceling others due to weather tonight. It will likely be a long day working around weather. Bring lunch/snacks & things to do during the wait.

    June 28, 2013

  • Nadh M.

    Sunglasses that will stay on are recommended.

    June 28, 2013

  • Nadh M.

    Spoke to Rik and everything is a go. Try to come out early if you can. We might have to work around weather, but it sounds like they do this all the by ime

    June 28, 2013

  • Nadh M.

    Saturday, June 29th is almost here!
    I just spoke to Rik and willl again, so I will post a final update mid-day Friday. So please stay tuned to that.

    He basically described this day as a chance for people to picnic and then they take turns going to their flights. People will be getting ready as someone is up in the air. We are scheduled to be the first group.

    Regarding weather sometimes we have to just play the waiting game, but when it clears up he starts the hang gliding flights again.

    Lastly as a reminder, if anyone did have troubles with Groupon or printing them out, now would probably be a good time to straighten that out if possible. Please do not mark them as redeemed.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone!
    Send me a message if you need my cell phone number.

      What kind of attire is appropriate? Jeans? Shorts?

      June 27, 2013

    • Nadh M.

      Attire is based of what is weather appropriate. So if it's hot shorts are ok. If your going to be cold Jeans may make sense in the morning. Keep in mind it is a few degrees colder in the air. I personally am going to expect to be warm.

    I live in Chicago.

    Anyone carpooling from the city?

    June 27, 2013

  • Claudine

    Will have to miss this. I was offered a wonderful opportunity to spend a week in Florida that I can't pass up. Enjoy!

    June 26, 2013

    • Nadh M.

      Thanks, hope groupon refunded you. Have fun!

    sorry,double booked for a buffet concert

    June 25, 2013

    • Nadh M.

      Thanks for letting us know.

      June 26, 2013

  • Tracy

    Do we have to schedule the video taping ahead of time if we choose to have that?

    June 22, 2013

    • Nadh M.

      I think you can probably pay at the time of the event.

      June 26, 2013

  • Elizabeth

    Thank you Tracy! Could we meet somewhere north of you along 294 (on your way)? Seems 294 is route we need to take. If you plan on taking a different highway somewhere along that route? Palos is quite a bit south of me, since we are heading north it seems it might work out better to meet somewhere along way.

    June 17, 2013

    • Tracy

      Would you like to meet at the Hinsdale Oasis? And what time do you want to meet?

      June 22, 2013

  • Elizabeth

    I am looking to carpool. I live in Naperville, but will drive to meet people & give gas $ if someone will drive rest of way to WI. Let me know - thanks

    June 16, 2013

    • Tracy

      Elizabeth, I live in Palos Hills. If you'd like to meet me somewhere closer to my home, I'd be happy to drive the rest of the way.

      June 16, 2013

  • Tracy

    Anybody willing to car pool? I'm in the Palos Hills area, would either like to ride with someone or someone would be welcome to ride with me. Let me know if anyone is in this area.

    • Nadh M.

      The event is coming up later this month. I personally am thinking about going to Milwaukee Fest from there, but if it makes sense I'm from the North Surburbs/ Glenview area. Where is everyone coming from?

      June 6, 2013

    • Tracy

      N, I don't know where Lakeview is, or Glenview, but I think they're both WAY further up North from me. I'm in Palos Hills, south suburb and am not great at navigating the city. If you want to meet me somewhere closer to my home, you're more than welcome to ride with me. GPS says it's 2 hrs, 20 minutes or so from my home.

      June 16, 2013

  • Nadh M.

    I hope everyone sees this message, but I can post it above. He does will record your flight for 39 dollars and give it you on a flash drive

    So when I spoke to Rik in the past he said we must all print out our vouchers too. Too many mistakes have occurred in the past with th voucher numbers, etc.

    June 6, 2013

    • Ali ☀.

      Claudine,
      Did you call Rik, as I suggested?

      Groupons for such events MUST be redeemed WITH the business to hold your spot. Redeemed as in reserving your spot. "Redeeming your voucher" is the term Groupon uses.

      Nadh means to not click "redeemed" in The Groupon software (something totally different). That's only to be done after the event is over and even then, it's optional. It's just a way to let members know which groupons they have used or not.

      June 6, 2013

    • Nadh M.

      Thank you Ali. Sorry, to hear that Claudine. Hopefully Groupon will be able to clear it up and we will see you out there.

    March 25, 2013

  • Nadh M.

    Most recent email regarding time below. So for the most part we are going to have to start earlier in the morning.

    "Nadh I can not give you the time of 10 am at this point. We may be able to fly all day,maybe just morning or maybe just afternoon. Sometimes we are blown from 11am till 3pm. Every day is different.
    I can only confirm the night before but you must be prepared to at least have part of your Group available at 8 am. Thanks again
