Help!
New member application

How long does it take for a new member application to be accepted and get a gate key? I'm anxious to start flying during the week when the field is not busy.

Gupllc,

Welcome.

As long as you have your AMA card ( regular AMA membership NOT Park Flyer only) you just go to Hobby Hangar on the Southeast corner of Williams Field and Gilbert Roads and talk to Ray.

Ray is our club treasurer and would be glad to take your money, and issue you a club card on the spot. He will also sell you a gate key for a nominal fee.

Rick

I mailed the application and check about 2 weeks ago. I'll stop by and pick up a key.

I just picked up your application today at the post office. You can stop by my shop Hobby Hangar and I will give you a temp card. I don't have any extra keys now but I will get more made soon.

See you soon
Ray

Ok I have to see if I have a working key. I thought the keys were changed earlier this year.

Speaking of keys, come January 1, 2011, the locks will be changed. Any current member will be able to exchange their present key for the new key.
There are former members showing up during the day, it gets worse with the nicer weather, and flying. My fear is some may not have a current AMA membership and we could lose the field if something really bad happened.
Our cost to do this will be well over $400.00.

PLEASE keep your key on you cars key ring, in your radio box... somewhere so you don't lose it so poor ol Ray doesn't keep having to go get more keys cut. It is a REAL PITA for him.

Rick (I already got 2 new keys in 2010. OK, the GPC dudes lost theirs so I gave them mine - twice)
