Someone should put something in this Thread.
I live 10 miles north of Russell, Ks. The local Russell club can never keep a location to fly at.
So, a couple of the ex-club members came out to our farm. We found an location on a excellent county road. Built a flying strip out in the pasture.
Still work in progress.
NO, WE DO NOT HAVE AN OFFICIAL CLUB. Only requirements are.
1. Can fly by invite only
2. Must be a current member of AMA, for insurance.
4. Please help out with mowing and up keep.
5. The gate is never locked. Please close the gate,
6. HAVE FUN

PS
Help remove the cow poop from the field. Fork provided. Watch out for the little ones that mom put down to rest on the field. No, they will not leave until mom comes and gets them.

Hey, SARG5,

I'm a retired flier 7 miles south of Wichita. Long way from you. We have several clubs around here. Some reasonable and one that will cost a new flier $315.00 to join then just a mere $215.00 a year. Sure limits their membership. We have lots of great flying sites, AMA fields, parks, country roads and one previous AMA field that is still a great place to fly. Our local parks are electric only. Been flying a long time and have yet to find anyone not supportive of our sport in this area. Had cops stop and watch, the dog catcher, mailmen and lots of city folks that give the thumbs up after I land. I think it is the thumb anyway. (ha-ha)

Hope all goes well for your group. Will fly with you if I ever have a reason to come to Russell. See Bob Dole very much?

Sarg, I feel you. I grew up in Hays and we flew off a pasture with cows and patties to avoid (way back in around 1980). I was just out there for Easter but did not bring any planes. Too windy anyway. Perhaps my next time out, we can meet up and do a little flying. No promises but a good reason to pack a plane and get out of mom's hair while visiting. I'm retired so timing is very fluid and trips out that way infrequent.

Hope this finds you well and sorry you're not getting any response from the Hays gang or anyone else.
