What exactly is U-MAKE?

It is a group of people that like to build and fly kites, and want an excuse to get together, socialize, and learn a few new kitemaking techniques as they do that. This retreat will begin late Friday evening and continue until Sunday early afternoon. It is now held at the Lorado Taft Field Campus, Oregon, IL

The campus is located just outside the city of Oregon, IL. Named after Lorado Taft, the 141 acre campus has become Northern Illinois University's outdoor education and conference center. For more information about the campus see www.niu.edu/taft
