Default Relocating

It looks like my house will close escrow next month and we will be moving to North Carolina. I cant say where exactly but it seems like the Lumberton- Laurinberg area is a probable area to buy another house.
Do you guys know of the flying sites/clubs in the area. Are there any hobby shops in the area? Am I doomed to mail order. I have to admit that I was spoiled in that regard, Years ago I used to live around the corner from a great little LHS.

I dont want to join a club like the one described in " my club is out of hand", some constructive pointers would be welcome.
Thanks

Send a PM to jongurely. He lives in Goldsboro and is on RCU alot - might have some info about that part of the state.

Too far east for me to know anything about although I do get to some fields that have pattern contests; Burlington, Winston-Salem, Myrtle Beach, Camden...........

I was putting in for work in PA and NC with the federal Govt for a transfer.
To throw a wrench in the works ( seeing as we had become set on NC and were eyeing homes) I recieved a call for an interview in PA. It went well.
I should know by friday but we could end up in PA.
Economicaly the same for us, but no winter flying, and close to family ( but not too close) in NYC.
I guess we will go exactly where we aught to be.
I'm not giving up hope though.

My father in law wont move to PA for health reasons, thats a negative.... Or a positive.

No matter what we are leaving California.

Check the flying field Pics thread if it ends up being NC. Jongurly has posted so many that I think the whole state is one big flying field.

Lumberton has a SUPER FIELD and a great club-- their flyin was last weekend-- then 30 miles north is Fayetteville with another good field and club. If you like to ride continue another 60 miles from Fayetteville to Goldsboro and join the best club-- ECRC. You can share stories with JGourley, Andyt, myself and a few others. At any rate, maybe we can meet at some flyins.

Hey avngr1, I just started to read this thread(can't believe I overlooked it the last two days),,, If you will go under my FLYING FIELD PICS thread , I have got picks of Piedmont Aeromodelers/Fayetteville, Midway RC/Lumberton, and abunch of other clubs within 60 or so miles, I post a new club about every other day or so and I believe there is about 10 or so more to go(something like that). There are so many groups of individuals that fly in NC, I personally am a member at ECRC/Goldsboro(home of the TOC pilots of NC AJF-2, andyt, jongurley [] ok not really )about 1 hour from lumberton, I also fly at 2 other sites that are not "officially clubs". If you move to the Lumberton area the closest hobby shop is Hayes Hobbies in Fayetteville, it is about 20 minutes away.... Anyway if you have any questions, just ask, but check out the flying fields thread you will see all of these clubs.....

This is all really helpfull guys.
Ive got my eye on a couple of fixer uppers in laurinberg right now that need a little TLC.
I told my boss ( not officially) tht its highly likely that I will be gone in a month, arrange for a replacment for me to train.
I hope there are no problems with escrow...

I used to live in Goldsborow and Pikeville NC in the mid 90's. Loved it there. I want to retire there someday. But that is a long ways away and I don't want to think about that.
