If a club attempts to interpret these rules and is wrong then the club could be hit with some pretty stiff fines. I imagine local clubs would need to wait for guidance from zone directors or senior MAAC leadership or we are opening ourselves up to significant financial risks.

Hi Sean,

At the Keswick club we have been maintaining the field and flying for two weeks when the weather allows, legally with the approval of our local police and by-law officers.

You do this by downloading the "phone app" for your smart phone and CALLING your local police AND by-law and LISTENING to what they tell you. That's what I did and that's why we have been able to fly, like today.

Re: Field opening, What signal

How would MAAC do anything. The offices are closed and from what I can tell the only real resource is the online renewal. No calls to the office number answered. Simple response to email saying they are closed. So, no, don't expect anything from that direction.
Probably a good thing since one size won't fit all.
