Our Flying Field is second to none. Over the past 7+ years our Chief Field
Dog, Chris Pare
and his numerous helpers have worked hard to maintain one of the best sites in southern Ontario.
"The Bill Smith Field" as we
like to refer to it, will be going into its 15TH year of operation in the spring of 2012.
Although the field is open year round (for those who don't mind the cold) the main stay of
the flying will take part in the early spring to late fall leaving the winter open for
building and rebuilding (if necessary).
The field is located on Townline Road west from Hwy 56.... One Kilometer north of Hwy
