Flying at Perris
Special Note for So Cal flyers.  Recently there was an incident at Perris where someone obstructed the work trucks spreading mulch and the farmer was very unhappy.  The leadership of the SCAMPS club has met with the farmer and assured him that the flyers would never do this. They also addressed a number of other issues that concerned the farmer. You can get an update from your local club and should do this if you fly at Perris.  All of the Clubs that fly at Perris are working together on a plan  to have a single point of contact  with the  farmer so we can better work together and avoid any future misunderstandings.

We are publishing this in SEN as a special heads up so that you are aware that it is very important to treat the farming activities with the utmost respect and if you have any questions talk with your Club’s leadership.

AMA and FAA
For: USA AMA Members

All USA flyers will have got an email from the AMA urging them to contact their Senator because of provisions that will adversely affect model flying in the FAA Re-Authorization Bill.  The AMA email has instructions on how to do this. This is not hard. It very important to do this to keep model aircraft flying in the USA as we know it and not to impose un-necessary and onerous restrictions. The AMA is working hard for it’s members, help them help you
