The contest will be October 15,16 and 17th 2021. Make plans to attend this special event .
The gate is to remain locked at all times . After you enter , please lock the gate behind you .
Flying site improvements and Maintenance are on the agenda for upcoming weeks . The trees between the shelter and the Upper Grass circle have been cut down and removed , this will improve air turbulence at control line circles .
Removal of trees that obstruct the two paved circles is ongoing.
Both circles require maintaince to keep circles on flyable shape. The dip in the lower circle is stabilized after the last repair, all cracks will be filled and repaired before the October Contest ..
Max Flow has treated the lower circle with weed killer , We will treat the upper circle next ,
If you want to meet at the field one weekend, Max Flow , Don Jenkins and Will Davis are meeting there on a regular basis. Weekends and evenings as weather permits .
Canton Georgia contest is coming up quick . Don Jenkins , Max Flow and Will Davis plan to attend. Always a good turnout for three days of fun ,

PARK AND LOCAL AREA INFORMATION:
Etowah River Park has nicely manicured grass flying surfaces, permanent clean brick restrooms, walking trails, paved parking, and river scenery. We are very fortunate the City of Canton has allowed one of its parks to host this model aviation event. Brown Industrial Pkwy. ends at entry to park – veer left and follow road to large grass area surrounded by sidewalk.
Canton is located near the foot of the North Georgia mountains. It has a nice ole-time downtown. The area has an abundance of great trails, rivers, apple orchards and vineyards. Lake ALLATOONA is nearby with campsites, RV areas, etc. In addition, there are outlets stores about 10 miles south of Canton on the I-575 corridor. If coming from the South exit off I-75 to I-575 to right at exit 268. This will take you on towards Canton. Most of the motels in Canton are off Exit 20.
