I would go to either field. I think Bomber field offers a bit more "name' recognition and it is a bit easier to get to for first timers (in my opinion only).

I'll be there if I don't have a conflict in schedules.

Best

I thought it was called BEST because it was best at everything. Why change and ruin the best? Been to BF, liked New Waverly better.

the date has been set. it is October 6-7 2012. still waiting on the sanction to go thru but it should not be an issue.
we have a new 45' x 500' hard surface runway as well as 80' x 700' grass right next to it. micros love it.
installed a petromat runway and it really is nice for the electrics (and gas)
it starts about 8' in front of the pilots stations and is 45' wide. grass for the rest of the 125 foot width.

Can you upload some new field pics? An aerial shot would be great!

Date is on my calendar! See you all in a few months.

This changes everything!
The models with small wheels that was left behind can come now.
But which ones should make the trip?

The down side Is I started a flying boat design for the pond at bomber field.
That was going to be my "new plane"
Guess I'll put the project on hold till winter.

At least the date was not shifted so I'm still a go for the trip.

This runway changes everything.
I have several models that wouldn't take off from the grass there before.
Now I just have to decide on what will fit in the trailer.

Little bummed about putting away the flying boat I started for the "other location".

I have built a fun cub night flyer for saturday night. been flying it quite a bit at night up at the field. it seems to be the latest barnstormers fad as we are meeting about 2 times a month to night fly.
