Default Float fly locations in Southwest Ohio?

Hello,

I recently put my Kangke 95" Monocoupe on floats, long time flyer but new to float flying. Looking for locations in Southwest Ohio where folks fly regularly. I live near Dayton. I've heard that there are folks flying at Caesars Creek Lake and also at Brookville Lake in IN.

Thanks in advance.

I don't know how far you want to travel, but there is a group in New London, Ohio http://www.firelandsfloatflyers.net/club-info.html that has a fly-in in August and they do fly other times also. I can tell you that I have attended all the August float flys, and Bob James and all their members have been excellent hosts.

Thanks YAT-28E. Deer Creek is reasonable day trip travel for me. Do the TORKS members fly off the water their regularly, or just during the major events?
