The club is still around.Attended a meeting on 1/29.There are 20 members,no web site.We are looking hard to find a suitable field.So far,no help from the county and private land owners want a small fortune for a lease.

Who would I contact for membership and I would be glad to help find a field - I've lived in Cherokee county for 23 years and have a connection or 2.

The last I heard the Cherokee Parks bunch only had a couple of questions they wanted answered before making the decision on allowing the club to use the landfill. IIRC the attitude of the Board was supportive, and they only wanted to know a couple of details about issues specific to model airplane operations vis a vis the active methane extraction system in use at the landfill.

I gave the Board the contact information for the Henry County club, which operates their very nice flying site on a methane-extraction landfill with no problems at all, other than a prohibition against open flames (gas barbecue grills and oddly enough, turbine engines.) It was my understanding that the club officers would follow-up on getting the info the Board wanted.

I tried to keep up with the club, but haven't managed to get any responses from the officers in over 18 months. When the Waleska Hwy flying site closed I figured the club was done for. Glad to hear they're still trying.
