Don't carve your summer plans in stone just yet. Our traditional Acton launch site, the School Street soccer fields will be infested every Saturday and Sunday this summer with cricket(eer)s. We'll be discussing alternatives at the next meeting. Pencil in the dates but the location will be different.

More on this as it develops.

As interesting (yawn) as my exploits in England were I wanted offer a useful suggestion concerning an alternate field for Acton.

See the post below.

There is a small field in Peabody, MA called Kennedy Field. It is used for youth soccer. I have launched A's and B engines there in the past and David has flown his drone there. I don't know what the availability is on a Saturday afternoon or who to contact. I imagine the Peabody Parks and Recreational Department is a good start.

Take a look, I would be curious as to what you think.
To find the field you can Google Kennedy field in Peabody, Ma

I got on Google Maps satellite view and compared Nara Field to Kennedy Field. I had both maps set at 1"=200'. Kennedy Field appears to be significantly bigger.
