Kite Our Butts Off!!

Well if you don't know it yet, if you wanna truly enjoy the kiting experience around Chicago to its fullest, ya gotta drive! Forecast looks good for Sheboygan for Sat 8/4! Sheboygan is a place where we see thermal winds in the summer when it's warm, sunny and forecasted from the South. For you wind forecast junkies, we just look for winds predicted from the south at least 5 knots. With this setup, the thermals usually kick in and boom!!... we have 15 or more kiteable knots!!

Great thing about Sheboygan is it's a park & pump spot! http://goo.gl/maps/5cT0p

Then of course, there's ALWAYS the after kite social activities at a quality "local"/"spot on the way home" to be determined usually upon pack down. But I have many ideas for places to share good food & good drinks with like-minded friends and converse about the experiences of the day!

Come one, come all... any level and whether you're currently kiting or not! There's plenty of room & it's great for you soon to be kiters to start the experience even if you haven't even gotten the gear yet!

NOTE: WIND & FORECASTS CHANGE SO FINAL DETERMINATION ON CARRYING THROUGH WITH THE PLAN WILL BE MADE THE MORNING OF. Text to touch base;[masked]

    Sorry... my 1st attempt at as the brand spankin' new co-organizer posting a Meet & somehow the date didn't take. This event was actually Sat 8/4 but I've just posted as 8/6 'cause it's the only way I could find to get it out of the Upcoming Events section without deleting it.

    Kiting was spectacular Sat in Sheboygan! Wind finally came up about 2 and we kited until about 5 when the storms passing by shut off the wind completely...and I had a nice 1/8 mile swim in! :) During that 3 hrs, there was about a half hour when the wind came down too much to kite. After that it was storm bumps until the wind switch cut it off completely. Horny Goat brewery in Milwaukee on the way home... great food, beer & atmosphere!!
