Congratulations to each of the AMA chartered clubs that have been awarded Flying Site Development Improvement Grants for the 2015 season. A list of award winners can be found on the AMA blogs. The grant was designed to provide funding to AMA chartered clubs that are making improvements to AMA flying sites. This year’s winners will receive a total of almost $30,000.
Due to the increased concentration on flying site assistance and AMA clubs, AMA asked Flying Site Assistance Coodinator Tony Stillman to join the team full-time at AMA Headquarters. Tony is not only working with clubs to obtain, maintain, and find flying sites, but he is also working with several partnering organizations to promote the positive aspects of flying sites.
