On our way to the coast we are visiting our son in Truckee, CA. Dropped in at their new Rec Center. Beautiful new facility with 2 basketball courts. They have several hours of open gym every day. I went at 7AM for a couple of hours and had both courts to myself. The staff was friendly and as long as I didn't wipe out any bball players they were ok with me flying. If you are in that neighborhood give it a try. I suggest early morning. They open at 6AM.

If a club were looking for a venue that would be a great one for a fly or competition.

We should develope a list of known kite friendly indoor venues on this forum. That always seems to be the biggest stumbling block to people starting indoor flying.

the Outer Banks YMCA in Kitty Hawk was very welcoming when I approached them about having an indoor fly there a few years ago. They gave us use of the gym for two hours for nothing, and gave each of us day passes to come back another day.
