They have volunteer controllers but the field is not "controlled'. No matter what they say, it is still uncontrolled.

Saw your departure after looking for you for three days!
Hope see you again soon.
She is a retired controller from Detroit. She moved to the Charlotte area about 10 years ago, which is where I met her when I lived up there. Very nice lady!
Bummer we didn't catch up. I was driving the concierge carts on Thursday and Friday. Friday afternoon I flew home to SC86, picked up my son at school, and flew back to SC00. Saturday I was getting worried about the weather and brought the plane home and returned with the truck. I had brought our camper down the weekend before so was enjoying its AC and cold Spotted Cow I brought back from OSH. Yep, you should have put out an APB.
RV-9 (Yes, it's a dragon tail)
O-360 w/ dual P-mags
Build the plane you want, not the plane others want you to build!
