    RC Mania CANCELLED
    West Potomac HS GENERAL EVENT
    Sunday May 17, 2015
     
    THIS EVENT IS 100% FREE!

    I am sorry to say after more phone calls than I can count and attempted accommodations with the TSA, we will not be given a waiver to fly unless everyone has a background check by 1:00 today. The level of bureaucracy and ignorance of the hobby by TSA reached a level that was both newsworthy and comical. Last conversation, Capital Police might need to be present at the event for security…

    When I suggested using AMA numbers, they did not even know who the AMA was or how it related to the event. They said TSA does not work with or share information with the AMA, so that is not an option. Only people supplying their SS number or passport number that I have entered one-by-one into their data base and having passed a security check, would be allowed to fly. This is not comfortable for a lot of people and adds a ridiculous level of burden on me to collect and enter the data.

     

    RC Mania’s attendance is typically at least 50% RC Flyers, so to try and push ahead with the event will not work out in our favor to raise money for the engineering club. RC Mania was a great event for all ages of the community, students and hobbyists, combining all aspects of the RC hobbies, Control Line and Free Flight. I am not aware of anything else like that locally. It got everyone together in one place to share what they enjoyed. Unless there is some change in legislation and/or understanding of the hobby, RC Mania will no longer be an option. We will continue with our indoor events in November and February, but those as you know are limited to just indoor RC flyers and free flight planes. Maybe I will do some brainstorming for workshops, Hobby shows, etc. to replace the RC Mania event.
