Re: Columbus IMAC.....who's in?

I wish I could be there, but my first contest is going to be NATS this year. I graduated from tech school down here in Mississippi till June 23. Luckly my dad is coming down in two weeks with the competition model for me to practice with for the weekend. See everyone at NATS this year.

I'll be there either way...

I actually thought about coming up and flying Saturday, then fly the unknown Sunday morning and leave. Just too much of a rush though. And even if I flew all weekend, you guys would still beat me....I haven't even flown my 120" Yak once this year, and I'm not kidding.

Looks like I'll be giving this tent camping thing a shot this year. Count me in Stephen.

BTW - All camping sites at the Alum Creek State Park are already booked.

Kurt,

I just want to make sure that tent camping at the field is fine. I had a friend of mine receive a pm saying that the park would not allow tent camping at the r/c club.

Could you please confirm which is correct. Thanks

Tim

Re: Columbus IMAC.....who's in?

Tent camping at the field is no problem. I would suggest that you NOT setup your tents right next to the main road. It would be best to setup on the other side of the parking lot (closer to the runway) or under the large trees behind the flightline fence. No open fires on the grounds!

The Corp of Engineers and State Park Rangers do not allow overnight sleeping inside of RVs, camping trailers, travel trailers, etc. The field is literally 20 feet from the main road so the park rangers drive by every half hour (on a busy Memorial Day weekend) and will stop to check things out and enforce the rules.
I should mention that there will be three RVs/ travel trailers that have special permission to be parked at the field for keeping the grounds secure that weekend.

A weather forecast 11 days out is fairly worthless.....
Here are some 100 year running averages for the dates of May 23-24
Ave High = 77 degF
Ave Low = 53 degF
Record High = 90 degF
Record Low = 33 degF
Average Wind at 4pm = 7.9mph out of the SW
