Sept. 11th and 12th
Come on and fly with us...we will have a blast.
It will be in Belvidere this year. Much LARGER field. We had our club spring fling here and it was perfect!!!!

Pilots meeting 9:30 both days, Saturday nightfly,
If pilots want we will have drags, auto contest, bomb drops.

The field is a private utra-light airpark.
It is at the corner of Townhall Road and Bates Road in the 61008 zip code area

___GPS___
N42 11.752
W88 52.837

It is about 1 hour door to door from the Fullerton field depending on traffic.

interactive map

Pics from our springfling at the new location....yummy!!!
