Trying to figure out where you're talking about. If you're going in vacation in FL, are you asking about FL? You said within 300 miles of Newport News, VA.
Anyways, I'm hosting an AMA/FAI helicopter contest March 4-5 at the Bay City Flyers' new field north of Tampa Bay.
Events for next year have yet to be listed. You can see details of the event in the RR events directory.
Hope to see you there!
PS, we have many heli pilots in the Tampa Area, if that's where you'll be vacationing.
