Save a Flying Site in Griffin, GA
Just outside the city of Griffin, GA lays a nice flying site that has a 300 foot asphalt runway and plenty of country land to fly on. This is by far one of the best places to fly just south of Atlanta I feel! The site use to belong to the Flying Griffins club back a few years ago, but they voted to leave the field due to rent was getting to be too high at the time.
A month after the Flying Griffins club left a new group decided to open the field back up and start a new club called the R/C Cloud Dancers. Rent was still fairly high, but not as high as it was before.
Lately we have been losing members either due to no interest in flying or moving to other clubs that are a bit cheaper to join. Since we have lost a lot of members we are having to charge high dues in order to keep the field going.
I am looking to get new members involved in order to support the club. The facility is just too nice to pass up and let it go!
If you would like to be put on a list as a potential member for the field please let me know in this forum or via pm. I am trying to get a list together to see how many people are willing to join this club next year and see if we have enough people to make the dues cheaper. In the mean time I am going to try to get someone to talk to the land owner to see if we can get the rent lowered for a few years so we can build up the club again whether it be under a new club name or under the same R/C Cloud Dancers name.
As it stands now it looks like the R/C Cloud Dancers club will be no more as of January 1, 2014.
Spread the word if you know of anyone that is in the area that would like to help keep the club going.
If you have any questions please let me know!
