G8? G20? A big ego trip for people that think themselves IMPORTANT.

Well I fly in that space but not in a club, I am a member of MAAC and I expect them to notify all membership, on the website not individually, of this kind of event and restrictions and not just say clubs have been notified!
So which is it thurday to sunday on outer circle of the official map or saturday and sunday only? Inner or outer circle?

Dan, reread the NOTAM and pay close attention to WHAT is included in each circle. The 15NM circle is a total ban on all forms of aviation, the 30NM circle merely requires you to file a flight plan with specific start and end-points. Since this is not a requirement for RC aircraft, if the club is in the outer circle, you can fly. The dates are specified for each circle.

HOwever, the Oakville club has posted an official announcement that their fields will be closed, no exceptions. There's your answer -- regardless of whether or not one of the fields is inside the 15NM circle, the club executive has made their decision and posted it.

I guess we could always Protest not being able to fly our planes !

( Seems that all the 'Security' costs have promoted even more Protests !)

The first 'Dignitary' has arrived. The Gross National Product of his country is 3/4s of the 1B$ cost of the meeting.

When this is all over, nothing will change.

That 'Fake Lake' could be great for indoor float flying though !

Take care,
Have fun,

Yes I reread it, I got it now, skim reading is not good in this case. Thanks very much.
