The South Coast RC Squadron recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward Grant for $175. The club is located in Bandon, OR.
The club was recognized on local news sites. The organization has been putting on an event for over 15 years that allows people to come and learn about the different ways they can get involved. They have remote controlled boats, planes, drones, and more. Their goal with this event is to get people interested in the hobby and show that it is a fun, cheap, and easy hobby to pick up and learn. They have many static displays of vehicles to show the different types of RC vehicles. Technology is always changing and they hope to show their love for the hobby and show that it is a hobby for everyone.
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.
