Club President Rob Sawyer steps down and leaves the club…

Multi-term Club President Rob Sawyer has stepped down from the Office of President at a special meeting of the Executive Committee Jan 5, 2018, also resigning from the club at the same time.

We thank Rob for his service to the club over the years and wish him well in future endeavors. Rob leaves the club as a member in good standing and we hope to see him return in the future if he chooses.

As the Kingman Modelers does not do a line of secession when there is a vacancy in an Executive Committee position per Article V Sec 6 of the By-Laws, the EC has elected Sam Eakin  to finish out the current term of President.

Given the recent resignation of Lyle Wunder as Sectary as well, a new Secretary was also elected by the EC at that meeting, so your new 2018 Officers are:

President Sam Eakin

Vice-President: Bob Kuntz

Secretary: James Lummel

Treasurer: Dan Griffis

 

It’s back on and it’s now law… FAA registration of UAS by RC modelers

On December 12, 2017, President Trump signed legislation that will reverse the earlier court ruling in the John Taylor case and restore the FAA’s UAS registration requirement, including for AMA members.

For more information click here for the AMA’s FAQ on this new development.

Note- FAA UAS registration is the flyer’s responsibility, and both the AMA and the Kingman Modelers encourage all members to follow Federal regulations, but we are not policing UAS registration.
