Peoria R/C Modelers Flying Site Rules December, 2006
INTRODUCTION: Under the by-laws established in the constitution of the Peoria R/C
Modelers, the club is required to maintain an up-to-date set of rules governing the club's
flying activity at the club flying site. The club is also required to make such a list
available to each and every member of the club. The following list of rules is hereby
established to govern the flying activities of the Peoria R/C Modelers members, at the
S&S Mini Airport, Peoria County.

as stated in the "Peoria R/C Sound Program".
3. Guest flyers must be AMA members, must be accompanied by a club member, and
must sign the registration board in order to be eligible to fly at Peoria R/C Modelers
4. Observe frequency control at all times:

responsibility in the case of an accident.
