    We don't need no steenkin' permits... oh, we do?

    I swear, they must have a tracker on me.

    I was flying my little parkflyer at Rooney today, and was planning on flying the FT Explorer and then setting up my FPV rig and flying my QX90 and Aurora 100, when an animal control truck from Golden P.D. showed up. Awwww, here we go again...

    They came over and very nicely told me and ...Mike?... a flyer from AAM who was casing the field to maybe fly his new plane later that a permit from Golden parks dept. is now required to fly at Rooney. They allowed how Rooney is an excellent place for us to fly and we're welcome to, as long as we have the permit. Apparently it just started this summer.

    I looked on the City of Golden website and couldn't find anything, either in 'permits' or on the page for Rooney, which still just says that the park is available as an open park when the fields are not in use.

    Anybody else run into this? Has anyone found out what the process is? They said that we could apply as a 'club' and get a group permit. I imagine that COFPV would count as a 'club'.

    Uh.. That's the first I've heard of the concept of a permit here. Instead what we got from the cops who dropped by on Sunday
    while we were flying is that drones are banned in all of Golden, and they will eventually start enforcing
    that rule at Rooney. There are a couple folks in Golden PD who are also RC pilots (one FPVer) so they're not going out of
    their way to run people off, but they're making it pretty clear they will eventually have to. If you can find
    out more about permits, I'm interested to hear more.
