Closest club to you will be Whitakers, up I-95 North a good piece, about 10 miles north of Rocky Mount. Plenty of rocket nuts meet there at least once a month.

Hey, can someone direct me to a Whitakers website or give me some dates? My dad is opening a buisiness up in Rocky Mount, and I may be able to hitch a ride sometime.

We, TRF member, have an annual weekend meet in April (yea...I missed last year!)

So you got 5 months to build something for it!

Don't forget the cow repelant!

And watch your step out there!

Yup, between Guess and Hillandale.

I take it the bad side a town means East Durham.

Nice site! You know, I never thought to fly in Carter-Finley Stadium's parking lot. I usually fly in the Little River soccer field in North Durham, but I've had to battle rec soccer teams for field time in the spring. Then there's also the issue of WIND!!!! And lots of it. It's almost the highest point in the county.

Oops, forgot to clarify, the *new* Little River school off of Snow Hill Rd. Yup, that's where I launch mine at, and I appreciate the compliments on the rockets. I'll have to check out the Carter-Finley parking lot though. It's much larger than the site I use now. I have to play with the wind in order to get my rockets back! I remember the long walk across that lot when I went to the NCAA's back in March.

I'm in Raleigh now, but my permanent address is in Burlington and my rockets are in Hillsborough. As for the closest launch site, the Whitakers crew no longer uses the Whitakers field due to some issues with the land owners. The last launch I attended was in June and that took place in Battleboro, kind of close to Whitakers. As of now, Alan Whitmore, John Hamill as well as many other ex-Whitakers fliers are searching Eastern NC for a new field. Stay up to date with the goings on on the filed search through the nc-rockets list (http://www.employees.org/mailman/listinfo/nc-rockets). If you feel the urge, those guys could definitely use all the help they can get. Maybe Paul will chime in on the field status as I am not quite up to date (so much info being passed around gets me confused).

Some of my folks live off Guess Rd...right off 85 across from the Carolina Duke Inn.

...and I flew my first rocket (Alpha III starter set) at the parking lot for the football field that's behind the hospital. Can't remember the name of the place.

Hmm, small world!

Oh, and I'm from the Weddington/Matthews area outside of Charlotte, but I go to school in Boone @ ASU. I've been all over this state!
