Members of the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA)
Here we go again! I am going to make another run for the position of Executive Vice President. Any open class AMA member can send in a nomination.
More later as I have to get some models ready for the Houston Sport Flyers Fun Fly tomorrow.
The rules for nominating and other stuff can be found at
I do not think this is on the AMA web site as the 2013 info is still there as of this AM. I got this this AM from Dave Mathewson the AMA Executive Director.
For your information, I do qualify for the position as I have served as a Contest Coordinator, 2 terms as a District Vice President (Dist 6, late 1970, early 1980), have been a Contest Director since 1963 and a Leader Member since 1964. By the way, that last term as a DVP was when I came up with the method to obtain the 72 mhz. frequencies that kept RC model aviation and AMA in business. Yes, I did later resign my 2nd term before it was over, because my methods ('git 'er done) may not always be the most lovely method/s to obtain what is needed, but they do work! :confused:
As far as model aviation I have been a modeler since 6 years old, active competitor in CL, FF, and RC. I have worked at several NATs, and owned a Hobby Shop in Mt. Prospect, IL. When I had to retire from United Airlines (28 years UAL after 13 years USAF) some 18 years ago, I financed and backed up a 100 acres of land for Jetero RC Club (who now owns 50 acres) to have a superior flying site.

Much more to come.
