A Message from Greg Stone

Iím Greg Stone from Southern California and Iím asking for your vote for District X Vice President. I pledge to visit and bring awareness to clubs and club events as I have for the past few years as a District X AMA Associate VP. I enjoy meeting our members and participating in all types of events. I want to raise visibility across the district about our clubs, events, and fun flyís as well as AMA resources. I want to establish a district website for everyone to share about events and happenings at their fields as well as further representation in Model Aviation. I want to establish an open communication channel for all members.

I will also work to build effective working and personal relationships with the AMAís professional staff and other District Vice Presidents. As your District X VP, I will communicate the issues and concerns of our District to the Executive Council and ensure our voices are heard on national matters. I have been flying radio control for over 40 years and have been involved with many clubs as both a member and club leader. I started in control line and model rocketry and since then have been involved across all aspects of R/C. I have also been active in supporting various educational STEM programs from Science Olympiad to collegiate design, build, fly competitions. Participating in these events has given me the chance to visit flying fields and members in other District X states. Iím committed to ensuring future generations will be able to enjoy modeling as we do today.

I can tell you folks from direct experience working closely with Greg on many of his projects over the years, that he is the right person for this position. His balance of technical experience, ability to work with all levels of government, organizational skills coupled with his ability to solve complex problems provides a strong set of skills the AMA urgently needs.

His level headed, logical approach to problem solving will benefit us all. Growing our hobby, preserving the fields we have and his interest in the next generation of flyers is a proven skill we can all benefit from. Don't just sit on the sidelines and complain.

A vote for Greg is an ideal first step to getting involved and growing our our great hobby.

I like the violent stuff!
I've been a member of OCRCC for years. Greg gave me my wings test. When I go to local events he's always there. Greg and his son are dedicated pilots. He's got my vote.
