The Carolina Area Free Flight Association and the DC Maxecuters are hosting their spring contest this weekend in Raeford, North Carolina. Both AMA and FAC events will be flown each day. This is the first outdoor contest of the season and the weather forecast looks promising. The rain over the last week makes it likely that the sod farm irrigation system should be shut down. The GPS coordinates for the front gate are 34º 58′ 19.33″ N, 79º 12′ 07.20″ W.
