Dave Brown, in his column in the most recent issue of Model
raised issues concerning modeling, risk management, and defining a "line in
the sand" relative to modeling activities. The impetuous behind Dave's
column is the new regulations for turbine models passed at the November EC
meeting. After the meeting, in a conference call, Dave Brown asked that we
hold these new regulations in abeyance until additional information, that
was made known to us the week following the meeting, could be reviewed. A
majority of the Council agreed.
At the AMA Convention in California last week a seminar on these new
turbine regulations was conducted. At that seminar a questionnaire was
passed out to gather input from members attending and addresses three basic
changes in the revised regulations. An online version of that questionnaire
is available on our AMA District 2 website at you can access the form directly by going to
You can review the current version of the turbine regulations by
on the AMA Website,
and the new revisions by going to
also on the AMA Website.
Please take a minute to review documents and then complete the
questionnaire. The results will be included in a follow-up discussion to be
held at the February EC meeting. If you have any specific questions, fire
away and I'll do my best to answer them. When you hit "Submit" to send your
completed form it will be sent by email directly to me.
