First of all the Pro Bros are all about flying, building and bullshitting but this AMA thing is pretty important too. So at the risk of being political we need to get the Dave M. issue out there loud and proud. Here is an email I got today from Dave:

> I appreciate everyone who's put
> "Mathewson for President"
> in their signature lines of their online posts.
> Encouraging others to do
> that and in every forum they visit I think will
> help. Also, it might be
> better to remove any reference to Dave Brown at all
> from those signatures.
> I'd rather have members see and hear my name as
> often as possible and not
> anyone else's. Whadaya think?
>
> Thanks for all your help,
> Dave

I think Dave M. is right about pulling the Dave Brown stuff so people can focus on the right name. If you care about this put it in your sig. It's an easy way to get his name out there. How many AMA future tense presidents do you think would take the time to hang with the Brothers?

Sigs are disabled on Ezone. I put it in the text above my avatar. It says: Dave Mathewson for AMA Prez (ran out of space so I had to shorten president)

I took "Impeach Dave Brown" out of mine (RCU anyway) almost a week ago. Now that we have a real campaign on our hands, it's time to get positive about DM, and ignore DB. We don't want to mud sling.

After I post this, I'll look at my Pro Bro site sig.

Yeah, is he pro life or pro choice? Is he going to give me a tax cut or screw the poor? Is he gonna blow up the middle east or send them flowers? Is he gonna close the borders or cut miltary spending?

I just need to know the important stuff! Give me a 15 second sound clip I can put on the 5 'oclock news :lol:

Man you guys are tough. But..... a good politician will find a way to avoid answering the tough questions by changing the topic to something that endears him to those asking the those questions. Therefore.... I ran into this guy at the STARS Scale Rally in Olean, NY on Saturday.



Thanks to all of you who are pitching me to your modeling buddies and putting my name in the signature line of you online posts. Campaign statements will be out soon and I hope mine will give you something more to support me on other than just blind faith.

Steener,
Campaign statements from the candidates are due in Muncie by August 1st. I'm ready to go but I'm holding off on releasing it until after the deadline. I don't want to give anyone else the opportunity to see mine and rebut what I say in their statement or take form my to add to their own.

Well, it's time. The cutoff date for candidate statements to be in Muncie is today at 5 PM EST. My campaign website is www.mathewson4pres.com and went on-line about a half hour ago. There you can find out a little more about me and hear my ideas and vision for the future of modeling and AMA by taking a look at my campaign statement. There is also a discussion forum on my website but I'll be checking in here too. So if you have any questions on what I've written fire away either here or there. Marc Vigod at RC Universe has also set up a sub-forum of the AMA Discussion Forum for me over on RCU. He's has also offered to set up a similar forum for the other candidates if they're interested. Anyhow, that's about it for now. I want to thank those of you who have thrown your support my way and hope you agree with the direction I'd like to see AMA go.

Just read your web site campain statement, I'm impressed. Like you I believe in bringing youth into model aviation, however the problem that I have run into the most is the parents. My son has several friends who love coming to the flying field with us and I have let them fly with a buddy box. The problem is the parents won't support them and allow them to pursue the hobby. I offered to give an old trainer (RTF) to one of them and the parent said no.

Any way good luck Dave, you have my support

Excuse me....May I?

OHHHHHHHHHH YEAHHHHHHHh

Here's my favorite parts:

"Yet we are still charged with creating guidelines under which our members fly, a difficult task at best. To address this problem we need to include those who participate in a discipline in setting guidelines for that discipline."

"A trend has developed over the last few years where liability concerns are driving the direction of our Safety Code. I believe this is a mistake."

"...encourage reasonable, safe flying practices without individually targeting certain styles of flying."

"Finally, I am a proponent of term limits."

Dave, YOU DA MAN!!!!!!!!

That will be posted in our clubhouse this week!!!!!

Hey Dave...how about adding "The Profile Brotherhood" to your endorsements?

By the way, setting up that forum on RCU was BRILLIANT!!!! I hope you're ready though, you want a list of names to get prepared for? :eek:

I'm sure you can handle it, personally I'm restricted by my nurse from reading in that forum, don't want to stress the ticker you know. But I'll sneak over once in a while!! :wink:

Hi Gordo,
Hey, I'll take any help I can get! If you guys want your name on my endorsement page I'm more than happy to post it. I want to make sure, though, it doesn't put Billy H. in a corner.

So far I haven't taken too many hits over on RCU. If I need backup I'll call on you guys. Nice avatar.
Dave

We should all print this out and post it in our club houses. It would be a great link to have in a sig.
