If you build it, they will come! Join us for a Fly-In at a private 200+ acre corn field! Site survey has been completed!
See the photo album for September to see some of the snap shots of the area.
What we have here is a very nice cushy corn field with nothing growing yet. To get there you can go around to the backside of the Medical Center and you will find a red/white barrier. Go around the barrier and park alongside the road. We will have the Ground Control Station setup so you won't miss us. This site is best suited for short take off or hand launched vehicles. There is a highway about a half mile away so everyone will have to pay attention to their controls.
Other than that, it promises to be a nice COOOOL fly in! Come on down, bring some snacks and your kiddies. We hope to have a lot of fun and maybe we can all grab some dinner or lunch together somewhere local.
This event is rain or shine. If our venue is a wash-out, for weather or politics, an alert will be announced/posted. If our site selection committee has been successful, we'll have a high-ceiling indoor location on standby. If that happens, apologies in advance to our fixed wing flyers. If we get enough weather-resistant flyers, we can consider using both locations.
The site selection committee has yet to meet on this schedule. Please send me a message to add a site to the list. If possible, please provide a description of the field, a google/bing map link, and a point of contact for that location (if there is one.)
Please send me a message if you would like to serve on the site selection committee. The committee will meet briefly, via WebEx, twice a month to consider and select locations for the group.
Keep it safe, I look forward to seeing you (and all of your fingers) at the flight line.
