Default RC Shopping around Lake Charles, La

I just recently moved to Lake Charles and fly Giant Scale Airplanes and 90 class Helis. I've yet to find a place to shop for fuels or supplies in this area. I found Bush RC in Sulphur but seems the number listed is not active. Any help would be great in regards to where to get fuels and supplies as well as where a good place in this area to fly. ie Flying clubs or something.

Thank you guys[/size]

By the tx. border.....there is a group in carlyss that have a flying club and i have been meaning to join when i have time.....they have work tables under covered canopy....concrete runway and club house.....they meet on thursdays if i remember correctly and have flyins both plane and heli.....i have been to the may heli flyin several times and usually some good hearted people there.....met curtis youngblood there.....he is from this area....great guy....the name is L.A.R.K.S. in carlyss la. and they have a website under that name i believe if ya google it.....glad to find some local guy who flys.....stay in touch and let me know if i can help you get in touch with them.....also i will see if mr bush is still open so you dont have to go so far if possible for fuel and all.....but don stills is a nice shop with more options....will post his number when i can.....later bigpapa
