Lots of free flight activity there . Sean was based there for a while and he got hooked up with the Magnificent Mountain Men. Some of the best there is are there. They might know of some C/L activity but I don't think there is much in the Springs, or Sean would have mentioned it, and that was one reason for the activity in free flight models.
Type at you later,
Yeah that's pretty much the case. I moved up there after my last trip to Iraq. It was odd because I was getting a touch of "FF fever" while I was deployed. A glimpse into the future maybe?
The Denver CL club just didn't put on allot of events, and everything else was outside my Army-approved travel radius so it wasn't enough to keep me busy. So I linked up with some of the local FFers--Nats level folks as dad mentioned--and got me hooked on gliders.
They have a field in the Springs, south of Shriever AFB that they trim/practice on and hold their monthly club scrambles at. They have a HUGE field in Denver--I can't remember the acreage but something would need to go wrong for you to need to chase off the field.
Several of those guys have roots in CL. I took my ringmaster up to the FAI 14-rounder that they have every July and put up some flights. I passed the handle around and a bunch of guys could still fly. There is a hobby shop off of CO-115 and I-35 that carries mostly RC stuff but one of the guys there was talking about 1/2A sized electric CL models. Don't know if he ever got off the ground with them, or if the shop is still there, but that would be your best for finding people to fly CL with up there.
Even if it's just to hang out, the 14-rounder is worth the trip to go to. They fly AMA events too, but FAI flyers from everywhere come to warm up for the Nats. Denver can be a tough field to fly on and it's alway quite a shootout. Very entertaining to watch. They have a few other contest and FAC Scale meets throughout the year, and some indoor contest in the winter months. PM me and I'll give you a few contacts if you are interested. Happy Hunting!
