West Liberty, Ohio. 9, June 2014
The the AAF Tank Museum in Danville, VA will be relocating in the near future to the Village of West Liberty, Ohio the announcement was made tonight at the West Liberty village council meeting by Jamie Shaffner. West Liberty is about 60 miles north west of Columbus. The collection of over 100 tanks and artillery pieces along with 1500 uniforms and other items. Many items are one of a kind and very rare.
A large part of the collection will be moved by what is being dubbed "The Freedom Train" escorted by veterans. Any Vet can volunteer to help with the move and ride on the train back from Danville. The date for the move has not been tied down yet but it is hoped to be done within the next 3-5 months max.
The museum will be looking for volunteers to "crew" the tanks and there will be an "Adopt a Tank" program.

Not sure this true or not.  If it is then, I wonder what happen to the field on the bright side for me that puts all the museum pieces only 3 hr. away instead of 11 hrs.

That would be great if they did, but from what I understand the owner of the museum allowed the HEAT club in Virginia built field there.

No, the history is like this:
Dick Bernier was a volunteer at museum. He belonged to PAC, but club did not do anything. He and Kevin, RCann ower and Jake(zimmerit master) suggested the idea. The owner of museum green lighted and paid for it. Dick and Kevin designed it and volunteered building it with two sons of the museum owner, Doug and .. (forgot, they were very young, about 20 years old). They even sent me a video on type. They order dirt for the battle field, but somehow clay was dilivered. so they just used it. but it is very touch for your rc tank. The battle field was improved over years. I was invited for the first couple battle days. 
Then the Kevin and Jake broke due to conflict of ideas about the battle. Jake started HEAT with some other fellows. Not sure he is still in it or not. Kevin left for good. The Dick quit meseum volunteering due to 'verbal abuse from the owner'(he told me). That battle field took lots of effort desgining and building, detailed. I just will not believe if the owner do not move it. the indoor battle field made that museum known to rc tankers.

A little bit of new information, not much. Still no word on the battlefield, either way I'd still go to Ohio to see the museum.

According to the article, they are hoping to be set up by Veteran's Day this year, but it would be better to wait until next year after they've been settled for awhile.
