Hi Lee,
You bet! No formal impound. 72mhz pilots do need to use the impound pin system.

I've got a few airplanes I'm looking to offload. I'll try to swing by for some selling...and flying.

Great! I'll be seeing you there. Maybe ORCA will be ready by then!

Thanks Richard. I've attached a few pictures of our covered pit area. If the weather is "iffy" we'll be placing tarps on the sides to break any wind. If the weather's great, bring swap meet stuff and a plane to fly! We are on 53 acres of club owned property. We have a N/S and E/W runway so no crosswinds to deal with. our grass is short enough to handle electrics to giant scale aircraft. Here's some pics of our recent renovation

Stuart,

Remind me to bring my AP Slow Stick during the Swap Meet. I'll take a much better photo of the field for ya! Weather permitting of course.

Thanks Lee! The picture was from a member who flew over in his full scale plane. The tin roof was installed last year during 4 work days. The pits are 250' X 20' and have a concrete floor. In addition to the work tables, there are quite a few picnic tables for you to place your stuff on.

By the way, we also have a float tank to fly off of which is ~50' X 400' so feel free to bring your float planes or boats out too.

Stuart,

The long range weather forecast is looking good for your meet. Sorry you can't make it to Garden Ridge tomorrow. The snow and freezing temps are finally out of the Metroplex and it is good to see the sun again.

Does this field have electricity? If not, is the club considering it? Maybe adding a generator?
