The process simple and easy.

Not ALL AMA chartered clubs have fields......

I didn't say they did.

But thanks for attacking my point. You do it well!

Not attacking, educating.

Thanks for playing,

No problem at all.

Actually if you use the link.

http://www.modelaircraft.org/clubsearch.aspx

Input a zip code. it takes you to the Clubs in the search radius. Once there you can click on "flying site details" So the link does take you to a clubs site If they have one.I've used it a number of times if I'll be in the area and wanted to check out the local field.

I have a data base with over 3800 flying sites in the world in my Garmin. It's old bur When I am traveling I ask for the POI (Points of Interest and it will show the 20 or so closest to where I am.
One thing I've found that many of the coordinates they have given the AMA are sometimes way off. A lot aren't even close ... One in NJ was about 15 miles in the atlantic when ya clicked on it. I find many are in a residential area and turns out to be the Secretaries house. Other times when they give the GPS Coordinates of the field Some (Garmin) can't find the field because it is located near a road other than the one where the entrance may be located and the GPS wants to go to the field from the shortest distance from the nearest road. Three of the 5 clubs I belong to are like that.

The taste, the smell, the texture, Bacon is simply irresistible. Why not enjoy a little pig candy this weekend: https://youtu.be/3uOdxTRfHRk

I'll agree to that , , kinda reminds me of the Longhorn Steakhouse commercial "You can't fake steak !" , well , It's the same for Bacon , it cant be faked or made from other stuff , REAL Bacon involves a Pig in the process .

Gee , I smell a great poll question ;

Does Bacon need to be made from a Pig in order to be called "Real" ?

Is that a trick question?

Across the U.S., there are many AMA clubs on city and county land, and all of these can be affected by local regulations.

I'm well aware, no local governments are authorized to regulate the NAS.

I haven't read all the replies. I can say that Stupid can't be fixed, because they are too stupid to understand they are stupid!
