Google Map with notes from a member.  Also lists other soaring sites in the area.

What you’ll find:
This is THE club in the region for Soaring, both fun and competition.  This has always been an active group.  Be sure to check the club schedule for a variety of activities.  The flying area is all grass.  A Park shelterhouse is nearby providing picnic tables and headquarters for contests.  There are some active soccer fields to the north and there is no flying from these fields or over players. 

Special Notes From Dave: It’s always “Gentlemanly” to observe the AMA Safety Code as a baseline at any new field until all local rules, etiquette and customs are learned. Be aware some fields have routine full scale air traffic nearby, others very little or none. It takes time to become aware of all the special concerns and routines at any new flying field.
