    I'm taking a preliminary show of hands of how many people we could get to show up.
    I rent a small shack on a big farm, on Grand Island. Middle of the California Delta.
    Very scenic, hundreds of acres of corn, with views of Mount Diablo and the coast range, and also the Sacramento River.
    We're right on the River, have a big grassy area to congregate, all types of drones welcome. Could fit probably a couple dozen or couple hundred people.
    If we could get it off the ground, it could be epic.
    Obstacles:
    The landlord...he's very private and religious and it would take some prodding. Possibly signing a waiver or bribery. Maybe $5 each or something, and no, I don't want a single penny.
    Should do before or after the rainy season, as the entrance I plan is a short dirt road and the grassy area will swallow vehicles, once it gets wet.
    Lots of fairly windy days, but I've been having a ball with my P3P almost every day.
    Would be a great place to drive onto, Maybe have barbeques, swap meet, networking, and of course, have a ball flying for miles and miles. No buildings, very few wires.
    Let me know who would be interested and we'll see if it's worth approaching the landlord.

    Hey, thanks for the reply.
    I've got miles of unhindered flying areas, along with some historic, rustic towns and waterways that make for some really great vids and pics.
    I'd like to get a lot of people together, but you're more than welcome for an aerial tour of the area.
    I've got hundreds of great photos just from the property.

    I would welcome getting to fly up there but I have to say that my area is just so much fun and so much to see!
    I am in Vallejo right across from Mare Island (where the old Navy base was) and the flying if just so kewl. There are plenty of places to take off and explore so much of the area. I think the real key is getting to know others in the area that want to follow the FAA regulations and be ambassadors for our hobby. So what is the next step?
