Proposed Field Design

Field Layout Plan 3

This is a proposed plan of the field presented to MMRCA at the May 2012 General Membership Meeting. The field will be setup based on the ideas presented here. Locations of the runways and other items may be moved based on existing field conditions (drainage ditches, etc.) but ultimately the field should look similar to this.
