I always thought the ASU footbal practice facility (enclosed) would be great. It's on the other side of rural from Sun Devil Stadium, can't miss it from the 202.

Good luck with the ASU practice dome. Even though you the taxpayers paid for it, I don't believe the demigods of college athletics would stoop to letting the unwashed masses anywhere near their pantheon.

P.S. Too heavy? Let me know if it is.

No, I'm with you

I getting sick of the politics involved trying to find a place to fly.

At mcc they started a rc club, I signed a petition, then I went to the first meeting, I thought it was gonna be great and boy was I wrong.

I asked about using the gym, and did not get a answer, then I emailed and got no response from the "club" president. So then I called the person in charge of handling all the clubs, man he responded in seconds after that. Lol

But still no gym .

Really I just want a place for me and my son to go fly when its 115 out, is that too much to ask?

Wonder if an elementary school gym would be big enough? It's in Tempe too.

Rick I still fondly remember when we were flying at that junior high gym and I was hovering my Sobre about 15' in front of me and you swooped in with your little SE-5 and nailed me, I then proceeded to stay in that hover in the same place while you lost control and flew into the wall.
