My plan is to go to this on Saturday and drive to the Commerce, GA area (where NOPI is being held) and then staying the night and attending NOPI on Sunday.

Google Maps says the drive from Clayton, GA to Commerce, GA is only about an hour so it shouldn't be too bad.

Ray we can't do group discounts as this event is very expensive to put on! I do hope you guys are able to get a nice group together though! These events really are incredible!

I'd love to do a standing mile. This is kinda tempting since it's so close.

The hard part is where? The faa has several security precautions with airstrips. Plus, there's the liability aspect. Someone can easily die in a crash at these speeds.
