To the Northwest FPV community,
The NWFPV board has a passion to host organized and competitive events, support each other in learning about our sport, be a place for people to meet others who share the same interests and provide a great environment for all of us to fly.
In support of these goals, we are moving to organize the group like a traditional club. As it has been announced at our past two official races, NWFPV will have a membership model (Full Membership and Supporting Membership options). We are offering a Full Membership for $140 annually. Full members will race all official NWFPV races for the whole year for no additional cost. The Supporting Membership is $80 annually. Supporting members pay $15 per premium location races and $0 for standard location races.
For both levels of membership, there is an initial fee of $20. As long as your membership doesn't lapse, you will only have to pay that once. The fees for races only apply to our fully sanctioned and supported race events. Other events like most whoop races, practice days, and other get togethers will continue to be free or very low cost. We will be holding at least 12 events per year. The membership period is from January 1 to December 31.
Premium locations are venues that we have to rent and standard locations are free for us to use.
For those who choose neither membership options, you can still participate in all of our races. For premium location races, your fee will be $25 and for standard location races, it will be $20.
We also might host one or two large events per year where there would be additional costs. These events would be announced well in advance and would be separate from the club membership. Additional fees would only be used to cover the cost of the event and/or additional location costs.
Members of the club also will receive privileges to fly at our home field, formerly Field of Screams, in Damascus.
Memberships fees will go towards purchasing equipment to use during races that will enhance your experience and allow for easier race days. We have already taken a huge step in this direction.
Our further alignment as an AMA supported club allows us to receive help from the AMA for an additional home field that we could have full control over. While our first locations didn't pan out as expected, we will continue to work closely with the AMA and other local agencies at finding a great location that we can call our own and develop as we see fit.
This is going to be a great year both in the caliber of events held and in the growth of our community as a whole. We are very humbled and honored to support the community.
