Model Aviation - November Issue

From Tony Stillman, AMA VP D-V via snipped-for-privacy@yahoogroups.com
This is an FYI concerning the November issue of Model Aviation and the
merchandise catalog.
As most of you probably have seen by now, the catalog is "upside down"
relative to the rest of the magazine. This is not a mistake by the
printer!!!
This was intentionally done as a way to catch the attention of the reader
that the catalog was included with the magazine. Last year, we received
complaints that members received the magazine but never saw the catalog,
which was bound in with Model Aviation. So this year we inverted the
catalog, something that is not uncommon in the magazine industry.
Further, please note and share with readers the catalog can easily be
removed. There is a thin strip of glue on the back of the catalog; all the
member has to do is carefully pull the catalog out, and the glue itself can
easily be removed as well.

No, it's some giant conspiracy by Dave Brown and his lap-dogs in the EC to exert their power and control over the AMA membership at large, and take the fun out of flying!!!
I'm sure that's what some people are thinking, at least. I figured I'd be the first to point it out.

No! It's a typical marketing ploy. I'm surprised it took them this long to make use of it.
If you want to think it a conspiracy, you're probably right. No doubt it's a clever move on the part of AMA to attract the attention of those who can't read right side up!

I actually thought this months magazine is the first one in a long time that was interesting. I have looked it over a couple of times and it is still not in the trash can yet. I usually like to read Dave Brown's opening section of the magazine and I guess I am glad I read it this time too otherwise I would not have known that yet again money was and is being spent on activities that fall outside what I think the AMA should be spending money on. From the gist of the column, I guess he has received negative feedback on AMA becoming involved in the hurricane relief effort and felt compelled to defend the decisions that were made. While I am very sympatric to the people affected by the disaster I do think this falls outside of the AMA's responsibilities. In general I don't think the AMA should be collecting or spending money for anything not directly related to what I think the AMA's functions are .... which is to establish rules for and to promote competition, negotiate the best possible rates for the secondary insurance coverage, promote / protect RC friendly legislation, and to establish the top level safety code guidelines.

Charlie,
Perhaps if those of you who posess this vast storehouse of wisdom and knowledge would get of your derriers and write some captivating articles, then you could make MA more palitable to yourselves and possibly the rest of us unwashed.

Well, my issue came in the mail today, and although the catalog was right- side-up, the rest of the magazine was upside down! Maybe I got the Australian edition again . . . seems to happen about every other month . . . .
