Parking spot and tent info ...

Each parking spot is 15' wide x 50' deep. If it fits in that space you're good to go. If you need extra space, just let me know...we can accommodate you.

- Parking Spot with no power: FREE! (limited qty available and are towards either end of show center)
- Parking Spot with your own 30A power plug: $25
- Two Parking Spots with two 30A power plugs and prepaid 20x20 tent: $325
- Four Parking Spots with four 30A power plugs and prepaid 20x40 tent: $550

First come first served, as far as parking spot location so let me know ASAP. I will need all tent requests and pre-payments by Friday October 6th.

if you want to share in a tent let me know and I'll try to hook you up with others.

You are welcome to set up your own tent at your parking spot.

Pre-paid Tent setup day day will be Wednesday October 18th.


You can email me at jamiesnipes@shtc.net or reply here. Or give me a call ... 864-684-9921 cell.

Jamie Snipes

I hate that I'm going to miss this great event. I've missed quite a few events this year due to my schedule. I'll just have to wait to see the pictures that everyone post.

Hats off to Jamie and the flying tiger club. This event was not on my radar screen but after seeing and flying at this first class operation, I will be back. Had a great time. This is a pilot event, relaxed, great facility and all the flying you could handle. I loved the rv set up on the flight with 30amp power. Couldnt be any closer. Just wish I lived closer. See you again, Jamie and the flying tiger rc crew.
