Just wanted to post in here to be abreast of any more indoor events in the Hampton Roads area.

You can stay tuned to this thread or PM me your email address for upcoming announcements.

Hey, Daniel;

Hobby Hangar in Chantilly hosts indoor flying a few blocks from their store at an athletics center on a regular basis. Otherwise, here in Fredericksburg I fly frequently in the daytime at the Fredericksburg fieldhouse. The management usually lets me fly there between 9am and 2pm on weekdays. The rest of the time the place is booked solid with indoor sports leagues. We're trying to get a more organized regular indoor flying event going here in the evenings, but finding a big enough venue that is financially feasible is proving difficult.

Thanks. Unfortunately that is about 1.5-2hrs drive away from me, which is quite the drive. I'll keep it in mind if I ever happen to be around there.

There really is no set schedule but it is held most holidays, Columbus, and Veterans day are good possibilities in the near future.
