Indoor Fly-In on Saturday, Dec 5th1

It’s that time of year (that time when flying outdoors isn’t always that much fun), and Captain Monte has arranged for another indoor fly-in at the Thomasville Rec Center, 37 Taylor Street, Thomasville, NC. Flying is free and will be from 6:30pm to 9:30pm! All pilots are welcome. There’s no charge and electrical outlets are available for sharing/charging. Slow-flyers and small multi-copters are great in this environment. Large/fast electrics are welcome, but this is a basketball-court gymnasium. Hope to see everyone there!
