Indoor Venue Information
- Do not fly drones outside of a facility being utilized for an indoor event unless specified by event organizers and/or the facility/venue.
- Realize that when we utilize indoor space, we may be sharing a facility with another group. Do not disrupt other groups and remain in the designated space reserved for our event. Disruption of other events can limit our ability to rebook an event space.
Outdoor Venue Information
- Always have your own trash receptacle/bag with you and take out what you bring to any event as trash service is not always available at parks and fields that we utilize.
- Realize that in MOST cases we are SHARING outdoor park/field space. Sharing means that others have the same right to the space and may not be aware of safety requirements for flying drones. ALWAYS have at least one person assigned as a Spotter to graciously inform others of your activity and keep track of your drone’s flight path.
- When restrooms are not available for outdoor venues, please use facilities at local retailers/restaurants in the area and be sure to make a purchase as a courtesy.
- Restrooms – typically none. Port-a-potty may be made available for larger events.
- Subway, Duncan Donuts, Walgreens, local diner & pizzerias are within a mile of the park. DIRECTIONS: From parking lot entrance (housing development side) go left on to Rinaldo Blvd, follow the road to the next left (development entrance from Rt. 31), take a right onto Rt. 31. Subway, Walgreens & Duncan are on the right side. Diner & Pizzaria on the left.
