Only ONE more week to procrastinate. AMA election ballot deadline is 11/14 postmark.
If you have your new '04 AMA Card (Safety Code Card enclosed) or the Dec. MA, (Pg. 163) take a look at all those new rules against your flying fun. That Safety Code grows each year and soon those rules are going to come FOR YOU, if not already so. The RULE-CANCER is growing by leaps and bounds. Only YOU can do something to stop it.
AMA District VIII has one VP candidate that has vowed to fight new rules and lobby to remove some already there. Irresponsibility is not limited to those being ruled, it also happens where rules are formed and levied.
Therefore I suggest that you do yourself a favor and get all your District VIII buddies to tear that ballot off that AMA renewal, presently stuck away for later use, Vote and send a message for change to AMA. Your ball -- Your court
-- don't fumble.
BTW a large number of write-ins in the other even-districts will also indicate a displeasure of RULES, RULES. RULES. Even if it's "Mickey Mouse", the message is displayed. You may not change that VP this year, however you can let your voices be heard.
