I have been out twice to Dayton/Vandalia for WSR low and mid-power launches and had a great time (am carrying a dual membership). The launch area is at Rip Rap Road soccer field and can be found on the NAR website for WSR.
Both times I have been there wind has been 0-5mph, light and variable, and there are great thermals in the afternoon for boost/rocket gliders. Had a lot of fun and flew several mid-power rockets, up to a G78G-7 launch on a 24oz rocket. It landed with a less than 2 minute walk for recovery. This is a really good launch site for L/M power.
