We feature postings for RPOA, SAOVA and Frank Losey’s Call to Action. These pages will normally have their latest bulletins, plus build a running history for your reference.
The main section, our local blogs, depend you to let us know what is going on in your area. If you do not see information about your area, Please email any info, including any links, pertaining to laws in your state or community. Please try and get this information to us as quickly as possible so that other members in your area can make arrangements to attend these meetings and hopefully halt any proposed legislation that will affect our hobby. If there is contact information, please include it for those that may not be able to attend, can either write/e-mail or phone.
We have tried to make using the blog as easy as possible for you to navigate.
