Default Illinois Builders/Owners Group

I would like to connect with the Illinois RV builders and flyers to put together an RV Builders/Owners Group.
Currently in the Chicago-land area, I know of 4 RVs under construction including my own. At my regular hangout, Clow Airport in Bolingbrook (1C5) there are at least 3 flying RVs and probably dozens in the area. I'm hopeful that there are others like myself willing to share and learn with others about getting your project to completion and make new contacts in the process. If you are interested or know someone who may benefit from such a group, please contact me.

I am up in Schaumburg and would welcome the opportunity to work with other local builders. I am building an RV-6A and have plans to be doing Phase I by next Spring.
