Default St.Louis indoor flying?

I want to get an idea how many people in the area would be interested.I'm going to try to find a gymnasium or possibly an empty warehouse in the Bridgeton or St.Charles area.Who knows if there is enough interest (read as residents) maybe we could get St.Charles to let us use the family arena. Keep in mind would have to be small light probably slowflyer I'm thinking 32 oz. or less.

I work at Boeing and fly glow aircraft with the Boeing RC Club. I have a field in back of my house that I fly from, but would love to fly indoors.

AlvinS;do you know Jim Greenwood,he taught me to fly at the Wright flyers field in Wright city and I know he is a member at Boeing's club as well. Also around where do you live I live near K and Fiese maybe we could get together and fly sometime.I'm about to approach Fort Zumwalt about flying in one of the highschool gymnasiums.Also some of the research I've done reccomends an auw limit of 16oz. instead.The last thing I need to research is whether AMA coverage could be arranged if needed.Although any rational person could see the risk of a 1 lb. slowflyer would pose minimal risk.Also if this turns into regular flying sessions I would likly need a secondary contact person,as I have no regular days off.
