On Friday evening of the big MACS Trade Show Convention Center Anaheim California a few weeks ago the Academy of Model Aeronautics held a meeting which was open to the public. On hand for the affair were the two Big Johns of AMA the President John Clemens and the Executive Director John Worth. Theyre also known respectively as Free John and Pay John . . . Clemens was elected Worth is the top paid member of the permanent headquarters staff.
Following the meeting a group of us went to a local Greasy Spoon (When you run a restaurant near Disneyland you can get away with murder). The group included the two aforementioned Johns Dist. X V.P. Alex Chisolm LSF President and MBs Editorial Assistant Le Gray plus this writer and wife Anita.
As might be expected with Clemens around the jokes and Texas Tales flowed rapidly. The topper however came from John Worth. . . Ask him to tell you about the guy who wanted half of his brain removed but the surgeon goofed and took out two-thirds instead.
Of course the conversation as usual got around to the problems of running a huge organization such as AMA. And at one point we took the opportunity of asking John Clemens a question about which we had been thinking for some time . . . Would he like to be AMA President for two more years
We had several reasons for asking this question but most of all realizing that an election for AMA President would be coming up in the fall we had started thinking about possible nominees and by comparing each one with Johnny Clemens we kept running into a stone wall.
