Hello to one and all.

I note that McMAC is not in the alphabetical listing in the RC Clubs. The only way I can get to the site is via the link in your e-mail.

Glad to see you guys on RC groups. I drive by the NRV area every few days. Thanks for sharing the Bluefield show.

Can folks with AMA Park Flyer membership fly at the Elliston field?

Dave,

McMAC doesn't show up here:
http://www.rcgroups.com/rc-clubs-177/?

Seth, thanks for commenting. I dunno about AMA Park Flyer membership. I do know that you have to be a member of our club to fly solo, but you can fly with us as a guest, if any of our guys are there. Our field is behind the fire station in Elliston, VA, just off US 460.

Attached is AMA Park Flyers FAQ. The first item on the list sort of explains flying at an AMA-chartered field.

Not sure how to get our club on that list. There does not seem to be an add button. Probably have to beg the thread owner or something.
