Club #1, $100, Club #2, $75, Both reguire A.M.A Both have first year initiation fee of $ 100 Both just grass runways. One is 30 minutes from home, other is 50 minutes from home. Nice, but not as nice as others I've flown at. They are place's to fly my planes, so I guess I'll pay what ever it is so that I can fly.

$125.00 A year plus AMA. The pits and runway are paved and the pavillion and pitts have electricity. I am suprised at how cheap some clubs dues are. The $125 is money well spent for a good placce to fly.

OK, so our field is a county field and you don't have to join the club to fly there.

So to fly there, just demonstrate you can fly and that you have an AMA membership.

But if you want to join the club the fees are:

$35.00 - Individual

$41.00 - Family

$17.00 - Junior

$250.00 - Lifetime

$100 a year, plus AMA. Then there's the extra's, the guy next door gets drunk and shoots at the planes, the head "Field Marshal" yells at you for breaking the rules, before you take your plane out of your car. It's only 12 minutes from the house, so it's better that a hour plus drive to the next closest field.
Maybe the "guy next door" will miss your plane and hit the field marshall.

Our dues are $65/year, includes mowing and field maintenance cost; AMA required. 1000 foot paved runway, 1000 foot grass runway, portajohn, and working on getting electricity to our shed. Club membership allows us to fly at a member's lake property, so we really have two sites, one for floatplanes. The field is 15 miles from my house, and diesel costs are starting to make me think about just jumping out there for an hour or two.

Man, I have no idea.

I guess the best part is, you don't have to be a member to fly there. The park is owned by the county, and there are very nice facilities there. A WIDE (did I say it was W-I-D-E) concrete runway, covered pits, and outside the flying area are some nice restrooms.

The club is there to ensure the site is safe and AMA rules are followed, and we would not have the site without the club, but membership in the club is not mandatory.

25 initiation fee, 75 a year, AMA required. 2 paved runways, covered pits. It's about 5 miles as the crow flys from my house, but you HAVE to have a SUV or a Pickup to get to it, because the road is horrible. So I drive 15 miles to a dry lake where I have 2 miles in any direction of a nice flat surface to land on and it's free It's only a extra 10 mins drive time if that.
