Do they still frown on up close 3D flying? My first day as a member they told me that I couldn't fly 3D.

Never seen anyone take that tone while I have been there.
But I remember hearing your getting flack about it though.

There were maybe 15-20 pilots all day long on Labor Day.
The guys basically fall into rotation and most all of us just took turns, had the whole sky to each pilot, and there was no real wait times all day long. There were a handful of 3d guys, down on the deck and right in front. One pilot was putting a large Aerobeez through some hard 3d until he lost a wing (stick with EF), there were a handful of larger EF planes, and Chris (formerly Gymnast) was killin it as well, right on the deck on the grass between the stations and the paved runway.

Huge Jets stole most of the attention of the day though, Pedro was running a Jetcat P-200 in his.

I'd love to find another spot on the northside ITP where we could fly park flyers, foamies, edf, smaller helis, quads, etc. DFC was so much fun while it lasted. I'd like to find something similar one day. My local park is great but it is a multi-use park that is used for the local soccer program. It's a great field, better than Mercer, but it's hit or miss. I'll start lookin again.

Type this in google and see my local park:

henderson park tucker, ga google maps

Something about that size.

I think when I had my negative experience with GMA -- it was during the time they thought they were going to be kicked out of that field and I just happened to be there at the wrong time with the wrong board member who was circle flying. It seems that maybe they have lightened up a bit since they now have a more secure lease - at least for a few years.

It's a great place to fly and I may visit with you guys as soon as it cools off a bit.

The lease is still unsecure. It will end in 2017 I think.

I hate you had a poor experience, you gotta come out with me sometime- I don't go as often as I would like because The Patch is where all my buddies are, but I'll continue to post up in here when I know I am going to GMA so we can get you back for a proper visit.

Lease is definitely not secure, that part stinks.... but they are actively searching for new venues and hopefully will turn something up. Unfortunately, I do believe they are only looking further north
