Reaching out to your communities through club activities is one of the best ways to spread the message about the hobby and to encourage youth to learn more about aviation. One AMA club, NARCA (North Alabama R/C Association), became involved in their area by taking part in local vacation bible schools that used an aviation theme. Several members of the club volunteered to go to the different vacation bible schools in north Alabama and south-central Tennessee to participate in the “Amazing Wonders” programs. Eventually, the club became the “go-to” club because they did such a great job.
If you are looking for great ways to promote your club, please continue to monitor our blog page and Facebook where we share stories about clubs going the extra mile to bring attention to the hobby. And, as a reminder, your club can receive up to $300 from the AMA for sponsoring an event and supporting your local community or a charity by applying for the AMA Club Recognition and Reward Program. All charitable clubs are eligible, but must show proof of recognition of the event, your club and the AMA through radio, television or print coverage.
