Directions to Lowe's Field
Lately, Flyers have been meeting here on Saturday mornings.
It's not set in stone, so If you are looking to meet up here on Saturday, or any other day, post a message in the thread.
Regulars: If you are planning on going, please post a quick "I'm in" in the thread. Sometimes people wont bother showing up if they think that nobody else is going.
Its on Rt 29 just down the road from Lowes motor speedway - across from Baby Dolls - See map.
I take I-85 to 485 and get off the first exit then make a left.
You can go any way you want, it is pretty clear on the map.
There is a kind of fence in the middle of the field. Stay off of the side that the office building is on (red "X" on map)[we are not allowed there, but flying over it should be no problem].
Park and set up a flight-line on the side that is closer to the speedway.
There is a gravel access from the road between the Gas pipe lookin' things and the ramshackle house.

J M Robinson School
South Charlotte Flying
Just in Case anyone is interested, Here is a good location to fly in South Charlotte. I (Evefly)try to go after work (around 5-5:30) as often as weather permits. It is sandwiched between Ballantyne Commons and 485. Look for Jay M. Robinson Middle School. Not far from where 485 meets Providence Rd.

Vyce, tell your wife good luck.
Tony, I knew I could count on you. Great job with the maps and directions. It will be much easier now when we get a newbie to give them directions.

Anyone up for going to SEFF this year? If there is enough interest we could a get a car pool together and go down for the weekend. I think I am going to go check it out either way since I have never been to an event like this.
