... Actually 95% of what I own is hand built, here in Canada! I think you are somewhat combatant for no apparent reason. It's time for me exit this conversation since it seems impossible to relay mature common sense, or to have civil discourse.

Have a nice day I'm done trying to beat this dead horse.

Cheers!

Carl

Let your situation be made known with or without a reason - your choice.

There are two groups that I think automatically come under the NO heading. That would be slope soarers and float flyers as they most often are found on public lands. Correct me if I am wrong please.
As the years end approaches the Ottawa Remote Control club is losing its field.
Prospects for a replacement field are not looking great, short notice doesn't help.

From a simple question to staying at home to beat your dead horse.
Thing to ponder, TC can pull any exempt and any time for whatever reason and there is nothing maac or any body can do. Then the fight will include everybody in a, not in a club, member or non-member.

Re: Do you have a MAAC field vailable to fly at? - Yes/No

Some of the fellows that are complaining about closed clubs are from Quebec. I feel for them. They have a land use committee that has the authority and uses it liberally to close down clubs using agricultural land for their flying sites. Most clubs are/were located on a rented few acres of the farmers field and this committee was making a concerted effort to shut them down in favor of crop plantings. It took a combined effort of all concerned to get some relief from the heavy handedness of this oversight committee. As a result new fields are more difficult to attain and those that are in operation have become more selective in the recruitment of new members. Steps taken that the clubs feel will help them retain there field. Who can blame them for this and even for putting a cap on the membership if it increases the chance of survival.

This is from a province that has a language/signage police were even road signage on the Trans Canada from New Brunswick to Ontario are in French only leaving the rest of the Canadian travelers to guess at what is written. That is one of the reasons I bypass the province when traveling to the east coast by traveling via the US. When I have to travel through Quebec I just try and spend as little time and money there as possible.

Its not because of the people because I have never had a poor experience with the general residence of the province its simply the politics and policy's of the provincial government.

Due to a few items I purchased during my month stay in Newfoundland the US Canadian border would have been more bother than passing through Quebec. Sad to say the policy's/politics does not seemed to have changed since last visit.

Going to start off by saying hello old Prairie redneck we have chatted in the past anyway back to your question since moving to Vancouver Island I have not been able to find a place where proper RC planes are welcomed i e gas burning and Nitro burning as that's what model airplanes are supposed to be powered by I lived in Alberta for 25 years was a member of Foothills flyers for a very long time and usually in the summer I travelled around and went to visit different fields and always was welcomed and always had a good time went to events like the valley of Hope fun fly and things like that and had a great time . my experience in BC has not been great I look forward to one day when the economy returns to benefit the working people and I will return to Alberta and be able to fly at the fields I flown at trouble free I do believe there are clubs here on Vancouver Island I've just had a hard time really meeting anybody. So far A little different living here even when you are from here originally different crowd of people I found the people in Alberta much more welcoming

16.5 years in Calgary. Now 21 years in BC. Other years in Sask and Manitoba.
People are different in each province. One word of advice. Don't mention Alberta unless you are asked and then keep it short and you will be more welcome.
Each province is its own experience and of course you can't lump everyone together.
Also remember what is called concrete in Man, Sask, Alta is cement in BC.
BC'ers can't understand that cement is part of concrete!(joke)

David,

Your comment [QUOTE][ I have not been able to find a place where proper RC planes are welcomed i e gas burning and Nitro burning as that's what model airplanes are supposed to be powered byQUOTE] is very closed minded. You have started another thread with a similar statement looking to join a club in BC. If you are verabilzing this to potential clubs you are likely turning them off.

There are pros and cons to all three forms of RC flying, electric planes being one option. If you wanted to join my club I would not care what form you fly, however, if you were quite negative about one of them, I would likey not want you in my club.

Just my two cents worth.
