ain't gonna matter - just ask Kodak, time marches on.

Astronaut Hoot Gibson has been promoting aeromodelling for the past 20 years or so,
http://www.modelaviation.com/hoot2011
membership keeps dropping, the core of aeromodelling had died or is ageing.

Time change - look at the Boy Scouts - numbers drop each year.

Face reality and enjoy the hobby while we can! Don't worry the FAI will save aeromodelling, after all we've given them millions of dollars over the years.

Re: New modeling organization in U.S.

Just as long as we don't have to contend with the Pessimist Modeler Society (PMS)
There just might be a way to keep the hobby afloat.
Where there is a will, there's a way. lol

This is what everyone should see, especially the government and the public.

AMA Enrolls 12,000 New Adult Members
AMA completely revised its marketing efforts to include an aggressive digital marketing campaign. The campaign successfully introduced thousands of new members to the AMA and AMA clubs. Approximately 87% of new members are in the adult or senior category.

Dude Perfect more than likely had a hand with marketing campaign.

From an advertiser perspective, that's another issue.
Could not agree more !

Re: New modeling organization in U.S.

Yup , did the digital mag on one of the RC mags a few years ago and I bet I may have partially looked at a total of 3 issues with a 2 year subscription. Even though cheaper than a mag it cost me more considering I read less.

Re: New modeling organization in U.S.

Yep, Me too I can't wait for each mag. to come to see what the other half of Canada is doing. Thanks for the great magazine Keith. I do go through it end to end several times, in my reading room next to the bath tub.
I also thank MAAC for all the work they have done on my behalf since 1979. For one part, it is great to know if I have an accident that I have some help to save my home and property. I also thank them for speaking up for me so I can fly my airplanes yet.
Today there are so many things that people can do in their spare time that it is not surprising to see numbers drop in most groups. Many people find themselves stuck in work to ' survive' for one thing. For those who might like to try models building , there are so many avenues that it is mine boggling. They need to go out to a model flying field and watch for a season, make friends and get involved. Yes and Mall shows do help and get new members. Having a good model flying field is another most important thing. Some clubs have to drive for miles to the field, young members need a ride. Having 'receptive' members in a club is also very important. Encourage young people to get involved but realize they have a million things they wish they could do. Member meetings and building sessions or learning nights would keep the building side going, a lot of clubs have dropped that side of meeting. I find that buying building products almost as hard to find now as in the 70s and 80s when we had to go to the lumber yard and improvise. Even with that there are few actual building products on the selves there today. The local hobby shops can make better profit selling one gasoline car or boat. The ARFs have taken all the fun of building away so new modelers don't get the building part pleasure of the hobby. The fact that one might trash a newly built model also scares some potential builders, well I've crashed a few and I still love this hobby and recommend it to anyone. I never had money for cigarettes , booze or drugs ( still don't) because I bought balsa wood and lots of glue! I guess that is why I'm over 80 now and trying to pass what I know on to others. Best of luck to all in what ever they choose but I'll keep my MAAC.
