EVENT MOVED--SMALL 2019--May 30-June 2, 2019 (Thr-Sun)--North Little Rock, AR


EVENT MOVED--SMALL 2019--May 30-June 2, 2019 (Thr-Sun)--North Little Rock, AR

The Arkansas Sky Tiger's Field has been flooded by the rising Arkansas River and Plan B is to move the event to the Mid-Arkansas Radio Control Society (MARCS) Field in North Little Rock, Arkansas. This will not be the offical SMALL 2019, but will be an alternative flying site for those who were coming to SMALL. FALL SMALL in October may become the official SMALL 2019.

Details of the MARCS Field provided by Tony Accurso (xplaneguy):

The Mid-Arkansas Radio Control Society (MARCS) has graciously offered their field for us to fly, free of charge. They have an air conditioned club house which we can use, covered areas and power.

A few MARCS stipulations:
- All pilots need to be current AMA members
- No camping on the field
- No model rockets or rocket powered aircraft

Canopies can be left over night. I have the gate code an will provide it to early arriving pilots. The field will be mowed Wednesday or Thursday. Again, there is power on site for battery charging.

The MARCS home page: http://www.themarcs.org/

Google Maps Link to the MARCS Field: https://www.google.com/maps/place/32...!4d-92.1781951

Field street address for GPS: 3211 Central Airport Rd, North Little Rock, AR 72117

Field directions from the MARCS site: http://www.themarcs.org/bishop-field.html

SMALL is for RC, Control Line, and Free Flight models of all types powered by single or multiple electric and fuel motors of individual .25 cu in equivalent or smaller (CL fuel engines may be larger), rubber, and even hand launch. Innovative and different from the ordinary models are welcome.

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

With the exception of several mandatory MRC projects that have to be done over the next 8 months, most of my spare building time will be devoted to getting ready for the 30th SMALL.

Hoping vendors like Cox International, EX Model Engines, Tower Hobbies, Motion RC, etc. make contributions to gift bags or raffle prizes. Also, we need to work with Sky Tigers on 30th SMALL shirts and/or hats.

Lots to do in a short time! If you guys have ideas and/or connections to help make the 30th a great event, please let me know.

Thanks,
Tony

Great news, Andy! As you've seen in FM, this is a very special gathering of passionate modelers. The SMALL family is the best!

I'm trying to convince my wife that she wants to go. If she doesn't like airplanes, what do I do to convince her?
