Default Flying in Florida???

Hello everyone. On the 12th of February I will be in Panama City Beach, Florida for about 30 days. I am taking a Radian 2m Sailplane with me. Can anyone give me some idea about where I could possibly find a place to fly while I'm there??? For some reason I am having GREAT Difficulty finding an area to fly using the internet. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

The miracle strip RC modelers is the only one in the area. There are a lot of other places to fly all over Florida without the AMA sanctioned field. http://www.rc-airplane-world.com/florida-rc-airplane-clubs.html I know I've flown for 35 years without AMA.

Thanks to those who have offered suggestions. I have been fortunate enough to find a Flying Club on the AMA website, very near where I will be staying. The Miracle Strip RC Modelers, have agreed to let me Fly there during my visit to Florida.

Respectfully,

10 hours drive north from me. Too cold up there, I don't have any long sleeve shirts or long pants for that kind of weather, threw that stuff out in 1993 to make closet space for my kit collection. It's way down to 60F there right now, brrr....but low 70s by Sunday. This has been going on for 3 days now and it should have been over already. I hope I don't need to switch to hotter glow plugs or adjust for short battery cycles from these low temps.
