The Desert Eagles Model Airplane Club recently received an AMA Club Recognition and Reward grant for $175. The club is located in Idaho Falls, ID. Each year, the club hosts a paintball shoot and an open house at the Desert Eagles flying field. This year on June 23, the public was invited and they were able to purchase 10 paintball shots for $2. The goal is to hit a flying model aircraft with a paintball. There were also demonstration flights, a display of RC planes, a raffle for a $250 gift card to Hobby Town USA and instruction for first-time RC Flyers. Proceeds from the event benefit the Idaho Foodbank. The AMA Foundation would like to thank the Desert Eagles Model Airplane Club for hosting a fun event and donating the proceeds to the Idaho Foodbank! 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.
