The Flying Cardinals members are working hard to prepare the field for the IMAC contest on September 16-17.

If you have not flown at our field it is located only minutes from Cincinnati international airport (CVG), It is a morning field with the pilots facing North and the runway running about 050/230. The runway is 550' x 45' GEOTEX with another 45' grass on the North side of the runway, so effectively a 90' wide runway. The crops this year are soy beans so there is no problem setting up for a shallow approach to landing.

The field has 20 amp electric outlets in the shelter and at the camping sites.

The field will be open all day Friday for practice and hope to begin the contest about 0900 on Saturday and Sunday with the unknown first flight Sunday morning.

The location is called "Cardinals Airfield" in Hebron, KY on Google Maps and is listed as:
8468-8598 River Road, Hebron, KY.

Looking forward to a having great time seeing everyone again and hoping for really nice weather.

I'm looking forward to this event and flying off your geotex runway. (It'll be my first anniversary for IMAC competition. I survived!) I hope more Basic pilots will sign up.

Our field (AirMasters) will be closed this coming weekend (Sept. 9-10) for heli/combat events. Can I stop by as a guest to practice at your field?

Greg,

Absolutely, just let me know when it is convenient for you and I will meet you there.

I do hope a few Basic pilots give it a try, we will be very welcoming to new pilots. I will ask a couple of the club pattern pilots if they would not mind giving some added support since I do not believe they are flying in this event.

Thanks,

Ray
