You are in for RC heaven! Way too much for me to type. This is mt 7th time and it will take a big event to keep me away from another one. To learn more, I recommend doing a search. I know I have started about 3 of these threads myself.

The Triple Tree Aerodrome is located in Woodruff SC. Think rural. The field and grounds are fantastic - lush grass, large pond for float planes, swap meet area, food venders....

Also think heat and humidity - the Nall is held in May.

Your girlfriend will probably be bored and not want to follow you as you wander up and down the flight line gawking at airplanes telling her how cool that one is and oh man I've gotta get one of those......

Motels I think are on I-385 exit 24 but I can't be sure - there were several nice ones on the same exit as a Walmart. There are more in Greenville and Spartanburg along I-85.

Camping on site is allowed, they now have showers - see their site (Joenall.com) for more info on this.

If you have a detailed map - the field is a little closer to the town of Enoree than Woodruff along US 221.

You must have your AMA card on you in order to get in. Don't forget it at home.

I have never flown during the event, but yes, you can fly. Must be 80" span or 25% scale to fly. I'm not sure if you have to register but they have strict freq control as you can imagine.

It's a great event to just kickback and enjoy yourself.

The ones located in Clinton look real close. The Ramada should be nice.

I overnighted for a contest two years ago, and we all went northwest up I-385 to Fountain Inn, SC.....probably because it was the CD's hometown. But the area was okay and the motel was new - I think it was a Days Inn. I havn't had the opportunity to head south to see whats there, sorry.

I will be there that Monday.
We tried to meet last year.
We need to have Bob "Mouth of the South" Sadler make an announcement for us to meet.
Friday night is the big BBQ.
Need to try and set something up and have a sign in book etc......

I suggest we RCU'ers try to get together at least once during the event for an informal meet and greet.

Hi Guys,

This will be my fourth consecutive year for the event. The first two I didn't stay for the BBQ. because it was on Saturday night. Last year they moved it to Fri. night so I bought a ticket, and I plan on getting one this year if they don't sell out before I get there.

Me and another club member plan on getting there Thurs. afternoon and leave Sat. afternoon, that way we will can go to our club field on Sunday and show off all of the cool maneuvers that we learned how to do, yea, right.

got a room at the Days Inn, Clinton

Since I no longer stay there (camping nowadays-- the best way to go) I will give you guys the best kept motel secret. It is the Super 8 Motel in Greer SC-- I think it is exit 55 off of I-85. I think it is on Highway 101-- Anyway it is at the BMW factory. Last time I stayed it was $50 per night--free breakfast and coffee--one left turn out of the driveway -1 stoplight--and 15 minutes to Woodruff-- could be at the field in 25 minutes from the motel. Burgar King and C-store next door and if you turn right out of the drive you are 3 miles from Greer and a ton of places to eat there.
