SMALL 2016--June 2-5, 2016--Wrightsville, Arkansas


SMALL 2016 will take place June 2-5, 2016 (Friday-Sunday) at the FARM Club Field, on the east side of Wrightsville, Arkansas. The dates have been confirmed!

Wrightsville is south of Little Rock. This will be the 27th SMALL.

SMALL is for RC, Control Line, and Free Flight models of all types powered by electric motors, fuel engines .25 cu in or smaller (CL fuel engines may be larger), rubber, and even hand launch. Model rockets of solid fuel and air/water types have been flown. Innovative and different from the ordinary models are welcome. The field is very large, flat, and open and can easily accommodate all of these types of flying. There is a session of indoor electric flying and I will post details when I get them.

You can find the threads on past SMALLs going back to 2001 in the "SMALL Events" thread here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1460283

GPS Users: This street address for the FARM Club Field gate works with my Garmin Nuvi GPS:

SMALL is being hosted by the FARM Club or Fraternal Association of Radio Control Modelers Club. You will find their website here: http://www.farmrcclub.com/

More info to come. I will put updates in this or the next four posts.

Not really wanting to defend the man there (I have some gripes about AMA myself), but the weekend changed from the first FULL weekend of June to the first weekend of June (any weekend that had June 1st) now back to the first full weekend of June. So that schedule change messed with the traditional date.
Now, the first full weekend of June suits me better because of the ability to get off my job.
After 2016 that won't matter because I will be retired. Now, I am rambling, over and out.

The date is not official yet. I have not heard anything from the FARM Club as of yet. Will try to get some feedback this weekend.
The date can always be adjusted to satisfy as many as possible since so many drive such long distances. Feedback please!!
I will not be a CD this year. Anybody??
