Default NASTY RUMOR IN HOUSTON TEXAS

I heard someone at a local hobby shop this morning state that the Harris County Commissioner's Court was going to close all R/C activities in the county park system starting Jan 05-I called the court and spoke with several county employees and got no real answer-is this going to be a trend-I hope it is just a rumor and not a truth

Morning Plane Jim

Do you belong to a club in your area/locale?

If you do, have you made any attempt to contact a club official about the facts of the situation?

thanks

Not to worry. When I saw Plane Jim's post, I emailed Wes Pierce. He contacted Mr. Baxter Marsh who is the main man between the Harris County Parks Commission and the Bayou City Fliers the main club at Scobee Field one of Harris County's three fields. Baxter called me and we had a nice chat.

Yes there are closure signs for Scobee as Wes explained in his post here. There will be some closures during good wx. week days, for the reason of: Extending and better preparing the Runway. Perhaps the fliers can take a little down time for that.

Guess that nasty ol' model flying thing will just keep on going and going and going!

I have heard that there were plans to extend the runway at Scobee Field. That's a good idea I think. Some airplanes need longer runways. Think of it as an airport extending its runway.
