Bill Erwin (right) arranged with the airport athority at the North Las Vegas Airport for the use of this facility for the control line activities associated with the SAM Championships. Without Bill's work behind the scenes this extraordinary facility would have not been available for the contest. So, from all of the contestants (which I was one of) a really big thank you.

Pictured with Bill is Grady Widener.

Airport management provided an area large enough for two circles. One was used as the official flight circle and the one behind the far cones in the background was the practice circle. It is quite possible that the area provided would be even larger next year. Yep, if arrangements can be made be prepared to go to Vegas next year for more fun.
