My Mom & Dad had a boat in Portage for over 20 years when I was a kid. We started boating there in 1969 up until about 8 years ago when my Dad sold the boat and retired to Florida. Iv'e been to Valpo many times over the years. I didn't know they had a flying field there.

Is that in the US?
I'm from Canada so none of this sounds familiar.

Portage? Been there a number of times. Parents used to live in Ogden Dunes on the lake until they got concerned with the lakes behavior and the beach getting too close to the house then thy sold it and moved to Valpo. My dad was raised in Beverly Shores and when he retired from the Army they moved to Ogden Dunes.

The field is north of Rt 30 about half way between Valpo and Merryville. It's an AMA sanctioned field in an open area.
