SMALL 2012--May 31-June 3, 2012-Wrightsville, Arkansas

SMALL 2012 will take place May 31-June 3, 2012 (Thursday-Sunday) at the FARM Club Field, on the east side of Wrightsville, Arkansas.

Wrightsville is south of Little Rock. This will be the 22nd SMALL.

SMALL is for RC, Control Line, and Free Flight models of all types powered by electric motors, fuel engines .25 cu in or smaller (CL fuel engines may be larger), rubber, and even hand launch. Model Rockets of solid fuel and air/water types were flown again last year. Innovative and different from the ordinary models are welcome. The field is very large, flat, and open and can easily accommodate all of these types of flying. There will be a session of indoor electric flying on Friday June 1st.

Here are links to past SMALLs:

SMALL 2009 thread with many pictures: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=996481 . The event received magazine coverage in the October 2009 Flying Models and November 2009 Model Aviation.

A map to the field is at this link:

You can use the "Get Directions" button to get driving directions from your location.

GPS Users: Google Maps GPS Coordinates given are :+34 35' 55.71", -92 12' 39.83"
To use them with my Garmin Nuvi GPS, I had to enter them as :
N 34 35' 55.7"
W092 12' 39.8"

Street Address for the FARM Club Field gate that works with my Garmin Nuvi GPS:

6855 Hwy 386
Little Rock, AR 72206


On my Garmin GPS, when you put "Hwy 386" into your GPS for the street, you leave off the "Hwy" prefix and just put in "386". I know it says Little Rock, but my GPS says it doesn't have a "Wrightsville" when I do a search for it and "Little Rock" works. There are differences in map databases and your GPS may give a slightly different location, but I know this works for Garmin Nuvi. Google maps puts this location at 6517 Hwy 386.
