How about an address or at least a city so it can be looked up. I looked up Elm Grove and it's no where near Rt. 40 on google maps. I looked up Chapel Hill road and Point Run road in Ohio and google maps gives me nothing. Would be nice to know how far it is, we missed the local air show that my kids like to go watch every year. I'd like to go see a show at an RC field.

I'd like to know before I head out and try to follow your directions, before I can figure out it's going to be a 6 hour car ride.

You might want to put it in the Electric Flight Events instead of the general Electric Plane Talk, too.
(thats what Events listings are for...)

I agree, something like a mailing address, something i can plug into my gps to see how far away and how to get there.

Also, do you require AMA membership? not all have it, lots dont.
