Somehow, I think the level of potential property damage or personal injury at an astronomy club meeting is somewhat lower than at a field where model aircraft are being flown. Could just be me, though.

I was a club officer and member of ROAR when I raced 1/8th scale on-road cars. They weighed upwards of 5 lbs and were capable of speeds over 60 MPH (actual, not scale). Our club carried insurance, and every person participating in an event (race) was required to be a ROAR member. Without those stipulations, we would never have gotten permission to use (in this case) a parking lot. I don't see any difference in that and the AMA.

I guess both organizations are criminal elements in our society.
