Flying clubs around Nashville, Tn?

Is there any one flying around nashville,Tn area on The board?
The wife keeps talking about moving to the Nashville area because she is tired of cold weather here in michigan. I would not like to move where the only flying is off mountain's. Thanks

If you are in Nashville, come out and fly with us. There is a club of very nice guys that fly at Edwin Warner Park and that is where the Hobby Lobby Crew flys on Wed. mornings when the weather cooperates.

If you have ever looked at a HL video, you have probably seen Edwin Warner Park, it is my favorite spot to film. It's wide open with nicely maintained grass and a 150' paved landing circle that is at a higher elevation than the surrounding land.

Actually the park has quite a history in model aviation, it has been an active model flying area since at least the 1930's when some freeflight events were held there.

There's also Peeler park that is more toward the northern side of Nashville. I learned to fly there and I live in KY! Great people anywhere you go.

BTW, having HL this close to home (2 hours for me) is the greatest resource in the world

I fly my electric park flyers in a large school yard/city park (Elmington Park) near the downtown. I fly by myself, usually early on Sundays so no-one is around. Edwin Warner is great, except flying is restricted to during the week until 3pm. Lot's of slimers out there but nice folks.

There are numerous schoolyards in Nashville. Many neighborhoods have a lot of trees however.

I'm getting up the gumption to talk to the administration of the local community college - they have a big open field/buffer which would be perfect for electric only. Perhaps this will get me off my duff and into action.

C'mon down to Nashville. Great place to be

Well Guys, I made it here last week and it is a nice place to live so far. Except for the morning and afternoon traffic. I live 2 miles from Edwin Warner park but with the flying hours there it makes it hard to fly sence I work days. When I have a week day off I will check it out. Thanks

Great to see you made it to Nashville. I'm coming down to fly around the 17th of this month to Peeler. I really enjoy flying there and it might be more conductive to your flying times.

2 miles, I take it you are close to bell meade. There is another park besides the warner's, just down the blvd, Parmer Park, an old school that burned down many years ago. Alot of the peewee leagues use it after school, but I have had no problems at all flying there. The specific directions allue me but if you go to phillips toy mart on harding(great source for glue, wood, even foam cutters) they should be able to tell you. Also we have more churches per square mile than any place on earth I believe(this is a real fact!) Many of them have no problem either as long as you get permission. There is also the Natchez Trace Parkway with beautiful views open land and history. While Warner parks is a fantastic place, the park alone is 1600 acres with miles of paved road, the rules are set in stone 8am-3pm mon-fri sadly this will likely never change. Welcome to Nashville.

Gray,I found the park today on the way to work. Do you fly by the back stop that has the orange fence up or on the other side towards nashville? If the weather is good and If I can get out I plan on stopping by and maybe toss the little plane in the air for a flight or two.
