The Rock River Aero Modelers Society recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward Grant for $175. The club is located in Janesville, WI.
Club secretary and treasurer, Larry Nitz, was invited to give a presentation about their club to the Janesville Noon Rotary Club. The presentation took place on April 15 and there were 50-60 community leaders at the luncheon. The presentation talked about the hobby, government regulations, and the history of the Rock River Aero Modelers club. During the presentation, Nitz showed pictures and displayed examples of several planes showing the range and depth of the hobby.
The AMA Club Recognition and Reward Program was established to encourage clubs to promote model aviation. The AMA offers clubs cash incentives for positive local media coverage for a public event, public service, club announcement, or other coverage. Click here to learn more about this program.
