It looks as though the AMA and the FAA will not reach an agreement before the 19th.

With this said we all need to register with the FAA to be in compliance.

2016 LARKS Spring Fling-April 1-2

We have been involved in introducing modeling to children of all ages, sending children to camp, doing flying demos at local schools, churches, and parks. We have also set up simulators and static displays at various locations as an educational experience to our community. We are always open to new ideas to promote our hobby to others in a safe way.
Mike Gill is the Club President for 2016
