OCTOBER Meeting – Nominations for New Club Officers!!

The October Monthly Club Meeting is this Thursday the 18th.

We have two major topics to cover at this meeting!
1. Club Officer Nominations
2. FAA 2018 Authorization Bill – How our Hobby is effected.
Please plan to attend the meeting to nominate Club Officers for the 2019 Term. Once we have all the Board Member Nominations tallied, we will move to Vote in Elections in November.
Last week the 2018 FAA Authorization Bill was signed into Law by the President. If you remember hearing a lot about Section 336 (the rule that governed our hobby) in the past, it is gone. The new Section is 349, and we are going to hear even more about this section as we move forward. Come to the meeting and learn and discuss what we know about Section 349 and the future of our hobby. Change is here, lets learn the facts and try to digest the myths. Learn the AMA’s viewpoint at this challenging time. One thing to remember, this great hobby is not going away!
See you all at the meeting!
