Here in Colorado we've got the Magnificent Mountain Men club. Also, the United States Indoor Freeflight Championship/AMA Indoor Nationals (USIC/NATS) is being held here at Colorado Springs City Auditorium, June 8-12. I'll be flying Limited Pennyplane, F1M, and a couple of other events there.

I see a flying club in Sacramento in this list, though the list is pretty old, last updated in September of 2012. If you contact them, let me know if it's successful and maybe we can add it to a list in the original post.

DoctaDave -

Get in touch with Chris Borland in Sacramento.

He knows his stuff when it comes to indoor duration flying.

His name seems really familiar. I must have seen it online somewhere, but he might have also proctored at my regional comp, as the ES definitely knew what he was doing, and he also showed me a picture of his F1D.

Thanks for the info calgoddard.

Just realized I repeated information provided by Bernard about the San Diego clubs. Oops! Maybe the double posting will help publicize those two clubs and their contests.
