Last week, we reported that the Frankenmuth Aeromodelers Club found a new venue for their yearly indoor flying events. Now, this week, we're happy to report another event has been scheduled at yet another venue, this time by the Bay City Flying Eagles, and it's a pretty exciting announcement.
The new venue is the Tri-City Sports Complex in Auburn, with a huge 73,500 square feet and 65' ceilings, as you can see pictured above. This is hoped to be the first of many; depending on how well attended this first event, it might become a monthly thing - which would be awesome. Oh, and did I mention that this first event is FREE for pilots and spectators alike? How cool is that?
For this event's details, as well as the Frankenmuth Club's upcoming indoor flying event, check out our completely re-vamped Indoor eFly Event page, where you can see the latest news, event dates and times, and get directions to the venues.
Hopefully both of these events are well attended and grow into a regular thing in the winter, and it would be even better if the two clubs could work together so as not to schedule on top of each other and help bring all of the R/C pilots in Mid-Michigan together a couple times per month. If that which doesn't kill us makes us stronger, then the breakdown in relations between SVSU and the Frankenmuth Club just might turn into a blessing in disguise.
