Map to the field

Here's a map to the field. From the north, take 301 south from Bowie. About 3 miles past intersection with 214, turn left onto Swanson Rd. and follow signs. From south, take 301 north from Upper Marlboro. About 3 miles north, turn right onto Swanson Rd. and follow the signs.

Acccomodation info:

There's a small motel across Hwy 301 from Swanson Rd. It's called Forest Hill Motel, Tel: (301) 627-3969. It's small, but looks reasonably well kept up. Certainly convenient to the field - only about a mile and a half away! The manager said the rates are $66 to $70.

Otherwise, there are several motels to the north in Bowie, I don't know if there are any to the south in Upper Marlboro, do a search online for motels in Bowie or Upper Marlboro, MD.

ronmeister,
A couple of our club members, including the club president, are bigtime spudgun makers too. If nothing else, you should come just to talk small potatoes with them!

Many thanks to those who braved the blustery conditions and attended. Flying was a challenge, but there were a lot of nice planes on Saturday to check out in the pits.
Conditions were a little better on Sunday, but attendance was poor, people were probably scared off by a weather forecast that didn't turn out as bad as predicted.
