I know most of you already know this situation but AMA listed a write in campaign and here is the link.

Take a second and click on links to send letter to your reps.

Yes thatwas good news as that was the bill submitted for a vote by the house, now we need to send a letter email to our represetative to let them know how we want them to vote.

Didn't really pay attention to the number I was but sent it early with some additional comments. Sure hope we come out on the good end. If not all my planes are suddenly 100mph max speed.

There's gonna come a day when they need to be much bigger and slower making it all the easier to see and fly

Bill, Where is that field? The horizon looks like the Sac area which I visit frequently. May have to come fly with you.

Speedy, here's the my rc fields website http://vvrcf.org its got an older pic of the original runway. The newly paved runway is parallel to the old one. The original runway was made from some stuff called petromat,,, a fiberous weave like material and that was kept in place for the foamies and or hand launch stuff with no wheels.

Its located at the eastern edge of Hesperia, Ca.,,, so it might be a bit of a drive
