    I'm with RandallJ, Sounds great. I'm in Hawaii. Oahu. I've learned of at least one land trust on the island. Can you provide Amy more info, halifax?

    Hi Gents,
    OK, I am making a list of flyers who are interested in helping land trusts and will get back to the forum next week (racing at Watkins Glen coming up and we won't be around). There should be no problem with my finding you a land trust to help. It will all depend on the mindset of the stewardship director in any given trust. I'm assembling a short backgrounder to send to the directors in advance of a phone call.
    Thanks for considering this work!

    Below are some images from land trust preserves in Northwestern Connecticut. I'm moving this project forward so anyone else who want to join in, let me know. I'll have a stock intro letter for pilots to use when they make contact with their land trust. I will also make email and phone introductions as well.

    The plan is to get this program working so that I can present it as a paper at the national land trust conference in 2014. Establishing the beneficial uses in a wide range of activities will help deflect efforts to restrict platform flying.

    Thanks to FPVLab for letting us coordinate here.

    I'm also in Mass.

    What are you racing at the Glen? I'll be returning there later this season. Just got back from Mont-Tremblant myself, off to NHMS again next week!

    Hi Gents,
    I live in NW Connecticut.
    We're racing at Lime Rock Park this weekend. I drive Formula V in SCCA Club Racing. WillM, what do you drive?
    Blizz, the Glen is on the schedule for July and September...

    I'll add you guys to the land trust list!
    Kind regards.
