Is anyone in NE indiana?

Hi,
I live in Auburn, IN and I was wondering if there is anyone near here.

If so, are there any good flying locations?

Does anyone know of any good sites near auburn/waterloo/butler? I had thought I heard of a club that flew in butler, but it was a couple of years ago and I've not heard anything since. I usually fly in my backyard, but my Mountain Models Cub is slightly large for the space I have available. I would feel more comfortable at a slightly larger sight.

Another question: Where do you go to get your hobby stuff? I usually will go to Phil's hobby shop in Ft. Wayne if I need to run to the hobby shop. It would be interesting to see if there are any other places in this area where people go to get their goodies.

Phil's is the way to go. (if you can find anything!)
There was a place on Coliseum West, Atomic Hobbies I think. I'm not sure if they are still open. Kind of a small selection though.

Cheers,
Bob

Phil's definately has a lot of stuff in their store, the only thing I find difficult is that most of it is towards the 40 sized or larger gas planes. There isn't as much available for electric parkflyers. I can usually find servos, recievers, esc ... as well as other stuff to build my parkflyers, but they don't have many electric parkflyer kits or ARFs for sale. I usually do a combination of online shopping and Phil's for any of my planes.
