. 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.
: 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.
