What about this?
So every RC club 36 miles from Santa Clara Ca.will be shut down, with risk of being literally shot down by FAA?

I Love RC Helis,and have the Receipts to prove it

Now if we could only get the FAA to shoot down every drone in the country we'd be doing good.

That seems reasonable, and applies to all aircraft. I can understand the caution during super bowel. Watch the movie "Black Friday" to see a similar possible terror attract.
Granted, a drone would not be that powerful unless it carried several pounds of explosives.
Also all the idiots that want to try to take pictures with a drone would be a mess over the playing field and crowed.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

it wouldnt need to be carrying an explosive....maybe something biological.

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

It is no big deal. The club I belonged to was right next to the a private jet airport. When the super bowl came to Indy they built a bigger Tarmac for the private planes. Then gave the no fly for the weekend. But you could see the amount of air traffic was way more than any other time that I can remember.

They are getting ahead of the curve as model aircraft now have to follow the rules as full scale. Majority of model owners either don't know about NOTAMS and/or care to check current status.

You've been advised now carry out your day.
