Did a quick web search for 'jet-ski' and 'power boat' rental companies on Lake Tahoe. There's no shortage of power watercraft running around the lake. Why is it always the aircraft that the NIMBYs go after?

That NIMBY issue is regarding the expansion plans of a different outfit, which was titled: "The next advocacy issue in the making". I took that link down, as I figured that our members here care none for any of it.

See comments: http://seaplanemagazine.com/2017/05/29/ ... ake-tahoe/

Note, two leading advocacy experts within SPA have been contacted about this directly, with no response whatsoever...

We'll soon learn more about this and it's not going to be pretty. The story in my OP is a nice video about how nice Lake Tahoe is for seaplane pilots...

You never know, maybe the seaplane outfit has connections with the casinos? The NIMBYs won't stand a chance against Lefty, Bugsy and associates.

You might be right. NIMBY's usually loose out big time against us, nationally. Fun fact: They are beating us at every turn and they are using our lack of representation and communication against us, very effectively.

Lets see what Lefty & Bugsy come up with...
