Skip, is this on asphalt? Could you give more detail on how to get there? Is SuperTiger C 35 with baffle piston OK?

Thanks,
Motorman
There will be a sunny day and we will fly our airplanes.

There is an asphalt area for take off,but most flying is off grass. The "Sparks" field is located near Red Lion Rd and Roosevelt Blvd......real easy to find. Yes ,we will allow that ST 35. I have one as well and would like to try it out on a Flite Streak. It should be a fun event,join us!

So North on Roosevelt then right on Red Lion rd turns into Norcom rd then left on Charter rd and it's one of those grass fields next to the Sparks Marketing Group building?

It's the grass field on the Sparks property. They hold combat meets there as well. Roy,Phil,and Larry Wilks run those.
