New Field Requirement

       At the suggestion of several officers of the club, I have started a new Field Permit System.

Since we no longer have the Radio Impound, all Field Permits will have a clip attached that can be clipped to your shirt, cap or radio.

The Field Permit lamination has a slot in it for the clip that will be available at the club meeting.

       For those who already have their permits, the clips will also be available from any club officer at the field.

       You must have your field permit displayed anytime that you are at the field.

This will help to identify current club members.

Thank You

Welcome to the Twin Cities Eagles

 

       Please email photos and information on your airplanes and projects so we can share them with our members and visitors.
       Our field is located in Council Bluffs, Iowa near the intersection of I-80 & I-29.
       On I-29 just north of I-80 take the Nebraska Ave exit and go west toward the Ameristar Casino. As you are about to enter the casino area, turn south onto S River Rd. You can't miss it . The Field is on the east side of the road.  For more information check the map.

How to "Renew" your Membership.

 

Gentleman:

       Here is the procedure to renew your Twin Cities Eagle Squadron Field Permits.

       When you receive your 2012 AMA Membership Card, mail a check for $75.00 to David Karl and include your name, AMA number, address, phone number and email address so I can update the club roster if necessary.

       I will confirm your AMA status thru the AMA Web Site. When I see that your AMA is current for the 2012 season, I will send your 2012 Field Permit.

       If you want to include a copy of your AMA Membership Card, that will also work.
      

       Thanks

Note From The President

       Hi, I am the president, some like to refer to me as Dick-Tator.  When I got into office, the first thing I did was to abolish all meetings. The speech that I give every year and which keeps getting me re-elected is, "If you want the long version and have 30 minutes to kill, call".

       The only reason we have a club is so we have a place to get away.  The club's sole purpose is to maintain a field so we can fly our toy airplanes and organize a few fun flys.

It's not for having monthly meetings that end up being gripe sessions and make a million rules that start to exclude people. 

       We welcome all types of aircraft and all styles of flying.  We are in this together and people sometimes forget that.  Whatever you like, there is a group here for you.  However, if you like structure and meetings, this is not your field. We are an AMA field and meet all requirements to be one.
 

We follow the standard safety AMA rules.  Our idea of structure is getting together for lunch and talking airplanes.  If you are looking to escape the stresses of every-day life and get away to a place where "Every body knows your name," you have found it.  If not, I am positive there is someone out there willing to take your money and tell you what to do.  (Oh ya, that's our government) 

       Thank You.  Pete Rosas
