Multi-rotors at RCSMP Field

We are writing this email in the hopes to address the concerns, questions and clear up the confusion we have been having concerning flying Multi-rotors on our field. First and foremost we would like to state and remind everyone that we are the Radio Control Society of Marine Park under the AMA Charter #466 which means: we follow the rules and guidelines provided by them. On top of that we are guests under a special permit granted by the New York City Parks department, so we must observe their rules also as it has been done since March of 1969, that’s 47 years, longer than most of us have been on this earth.

RCSMP Opening Day / Field Cleanup; Sun. April 24th – 9 AM

Mark you calendars; Sunday April 24th at 9 AM will be the official opening day for the Radio Control Society of Marine Park.
Opening day means field cleanup day; the time that we prepare the field for the season ahead of us.
The field will be closed to all flight until cleanup is complete. The more who are able to chip in, the faster we get flying. Bring your self and a pair of work gloves.
Garbage bags and tools will be provided by the club.
Following the cleanup, there will be a pizza lunch provided by the club.

In case we’re rained out, our contingency plan is a rain date of Sunday May 1st.
