The meeting was held on March 2nd. We have a 5 year lease on our new field:
1347 Cedar Creek Road, Pelion, SC.
August 2017
On Saturday, July 29, James and the crew laid down our Geotextile runway . As you can see from the Photo below, they did a fine job!! Still working on power and water. Tentative opening date is September 16, 2017.
