Iíve reserved a non smoking room, 2 double beds, checking in Friday and out Sunday. I would prefer not to pay the entire $194.
Anybody want to go halfs?
I tend to go to bed early, so this wonít be the party room.

Fast Combat has been moved to Friday afternoon. 1:00*?. After we get the field marked.

Please let me know if you will be flying combat and which events.
This helps with getting all the flying and registration forms printed

Talked with the chamber of commerce for both Huntersville $ Lake Norman.
There are NO RV parks in the immediate area. Statesville is a BAD choice as the I75 Traffic can back up at any time.
Found two places on goggle which seemed to have decent review's.


Elmore RV Park (18 -23 min.)
Address: 4826 N Tryon St,
Charlotte, NC 28213
Phone: (704) 597-1323

Apollo RV Park  (15 - 18 Min.)
Address: 4275 Morehead Rd,
Concord, NC 28027
Phone: (704) 455-2409

Hope this helps.

Yep, I camped in Statesville last spring. The drive in was less than fun.

After further consideration, I changed my reservation to start on Friday, still checking out Sunday. I figure Iíll get up early and get there in time for a practice flight, then get a good nightís sleep for Saturday.

Still open to a quiet, well behaved roommate to split the cost ($194) with. PM me if you want in.

Contest prep is going on schedule , the site looks great, last year's remodel of the site is looking better with extra grass repairs . A few reminders for new attendees ,

We have a 12 volt charging station on site , close to the shelter and close to circles. No 110  so bring 12 volt chargers

2 paved circles, 1 grass circle , 3 additional circles  carrier, combat and practice circle 

No parking  at shelter except 6 handicap spot s , unload car  and park in parking lot , see picture

No open flames at site, ( landfill issue )

We have a local Italian Pizza and Deli provide hoagie sandwiches for lunch on Saturday , Wendy's , Hardee's and other restaurants are 2 miles from field , but people really enjoy Mama's Deli

We are usually done by 2pm on Sunday to get you on the road home ASAP

Real NC wood trophies with  4x6 group photos  first thru third place in all stunt and carrier events

We have site reserved for Friday, Sat and Sunday

If you arrive at the site early and the gate is locked  call me I can get you in ( 7048601079)

Congratulations to all contestants , We had  fun contest with a nice cool day  early on Sunday, sunny weather  that warmed up nice if you were out in the sun ,

We had shifting stiff wind in the first round with very nice  wind in the second round, slot like Friday , the later in the day it  got , the better  the weather,

A big caravan  of modelers  left the field at 1: 30 to head  to Watt Moore's  home and flying field  for a cookout and more flying .

Thank you Will I appreciate everything. I had a bunch of fun. On the way home I used the rest of the batteries to practice. I took advantage of nice weather home and instead of draining batteries on the ground I decided to do it in the air. What is the most important thing I took with me from this event is to practice more.
