2021 Indoor Nats

From:William  Shailor

The Detroit Balsa Bugs and the Cloudbusters Model Airplane Club are honored to host the 2021 Indoor Nats at The UWM Sports Complex in Pontiac, Michigan. The contest will run from Tuesday, July 20, to Friday, July 23, 2021.

It is hoped that holding it close in time to the Outdoor Free Flight Nats will encourage Free Flighters to take advantage of attending both contests, reminiscent of years passed.

The site is an outstanding venue for Indoor Free Flight. It has a 72 foot ceiling with 66 feet to the bottom of the girders. Floor area is an impressive 80 by 125 yards; a full sized regulation soccer field with a runoff.
Measures to secure the building from drafts will be in place.

There is a food court, conference rooms and lavatories all within this complex.

The complex is relatively new and is neat, clean and in a safe neighborhood. There is ample, lighted parking adjacent to the flying site, which is designated as “Building 3.”
This site has been the location of many “Indoor Fling” contests run by these two clubs with excellent results.
