Looking For Glider Flying Help Near Decatur AL

I am in Decatur AL. I have started flying RC ALES gliders. Looking for help in improving my glider trimming and flying. No one in Decatur flies gliders. I only fly electric since our field are to small for anything else. I have been Tullahoma to fly and they were very helpful but it is a long drive from Decatur.

I'm new to the area, haven't yet pulled any of my planes out of the moving boxes or visited any of the local clubs, but I know their is an all electric club that flies off of the Oakwood University campus.

Might be worth trying to get a hold of someone there?

There is this group:

But I'm not sure they have a field, I was told that Oakwood doesn't allow flying there anymore. I enjoy flying my RP at RCRC in Huntsville, if you have AMA you are welcome to come out and fly as a guest to try us out.

NARCA has an open house this weekend, probably some sail planes there.

You may be right, now that you mention it I think someone told me that...

Thanks Andy! I say I haven't been here that long, it's been over a year actually. Was in an apartment without room for the models up until recently, bought a house and me and my wife moved in at the end of May. So many projects going on right now, (pulling down wall paper, painting every single room/surface, removed the popcorn ceilings, etc, etc, etc), I just haven't been able to get the planes out of storage, and I likely won't be able to until I have enough of the house painted to have a place to put them.

Oh well. Maybe if I am lucky I'll be able to swing by the field at some point one weekend in the near future. I'm assuming this is the field off of airport, the other direction from the Leaman Fry intersection?

I've got a little bit of everything, looking forward to getting my gliders back out though. old1104, if you are still having issues once I get my 'fleet' out of the boxes, I'll do what I can to give you a hand. It's been so long since I've flown, I may end up needing 'training' time again...
