Sanctioned Event!

Here is a short video of our field.

Thanks to PARA we are able to have a fantastic flying site to host events complete with electricity, water, and restrooms.

Camping:
If you would like to bring a pull along camper, or if you have a large RV you are welcome to park them in the parking lot at our field. Please keep in mind, there are no hook-ups! We will leave the restrooms open through the night.

Electric flyers:
Those of you who fly electrics are encouraged to bring items you would normally use if you were in a location that did not have electricity available. We do have electricity at our field, however, it does have limitations. If you have a powerful charging set-up please have your normal power plant with you just in case

Sounds like it was great fun as usual!

Out of the three events we were thinking of, we went to ZERO I had to go to china for a few weeks , got the call requesting it on monday, and was told I was leaving wednesday. HATE missing tuscaloosa. Always the most "fun" event of the year with great people and a beautiful flying site!
