Directions to Blythe Soccer Field

Currently this is the usual Sunday Morning Meeting area.

RC Flyers typically begin to show up as early as 8:00AM
Soccer teams usually start arriving between 12 Noon and 1PM (which ends flying).


From Charlotte:

I77North to Harris Blvd/Reames Rd Exit (EX 18).
Go Right off of ramp.
First light make a Left (Statesville Rd N.)
Go 2.1 miles to Second traffic light and make a Right (Hambright Rd)(You'll see a little green sign there pointing to Blythe School and some other school).

We are 100 feet up on the right (Soccer fields).

From Concord area:

85S to the first Harris Blvd Exit (EX 45B).
Go 4.5 miles and make a RIGHT on Old Statesville Rd. (RT 115).
Go 3.0 miles and make a LEFT on Hambright Rd.
We are 100 feet up on the Left (Soccer fields).

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.

Directions:
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.

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.

Reserving one more post.
This way, if we add new places, we can have all the directions on the first page of the thread.

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.

OK. I think this one is the unlucky 13th post. Now there is no excuse for anyone not to post. I should be there Sunday.

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.
