AMA or Snot ?

Had a long talk with KC yesterday and he expressed a desire to have y'aLL fLY @ ARCA on a 'semi-regular' basis. I explained that many of us are not AMA 'compliant', thus our existence AS guerrillas.
So, out of curosity, I'm asking....who iS & who ain't (I also understand there might be some reluctance to answer ). If you would rather not say here, please PM me with the yea or nay answer !

You may now return to your 'normal' activities !!

side note: I think I know the answer for some of you, but it would help if my memory is 'refreshed' !

I'm first...

Yep

Expires 12/31
yep, until 12/2012.

So I get this nice email last week, odds and ends, top of the page is a RENEW here button. Sure I can go ahead and do that. Click on the button, then the button on the AMA page saying renew, enter my ama number and last name. Says I don't need to renew now. WTH? Click on the renewal email in the email they sent me...bounced back. Went to the contact us site and clicked on deborahb@modelaircraft.org and sent her an email. Havent heard anything yet. I guess they are real busy.

I'm currently AMA but will most likely not renew. Don't let that influence any ARCA decisions even a tiny bit though, because I have to fly off my tailgate.

@John; speaking of which, if the weather looks good one day next week, I'd be up for a little 'tailgate flyin' at TT.

(BTW, it sure it nice to see this thread back up and humming).

Gordon summed everything up pretty well for me. I'm suggesting Tuesday mid day for some flying, I hope the weather cooperates and some of the gang can show up.

OK, I'm switching to Futaba. I'm watching 'Plane Crash' on discovery. They are using a Futaba T8FG to fly a Boeing 727 via a chase plane.

Oh, wait they are crashing the plane, never mind I'll stick with my new JR XG8....
