December Indoor Fly

Hope you got a chance to fly indoors over the last couple of months because indoor flying with SEFSD at Alliant University is on hold for awhile. The gym is booked solid with basketball (of all things) for the next couple of months. SEFSD is also working on renewing their contract and we are still waiting to here if it will continue at all. We will keep you posted.

Anyone know of another place to fly?
