Droning Along

Today I started riding at the Bastille. Karen and I rode around to Millvale and Pamela's Pancakes for strawberry crepe goodness. Nice ride.

Coming back, noticed these signs around the baseball stadium:


which is kind of misleading, because NOTAM 4-3621 (pdf), the cited authority, pretty clearly says

PURSUANT TO 14 CFR SECTION 99.7, SPECIAL SECURITY INSTRUCTIONS, COMMENCING ONE HOUR BEFORE THE SCHEDULED TIME OF THE EVENT UNTIL ONE HOUR AFTER THE END OF THE EVENT. ALL AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS; INCLUDING PARACHUTE JUMPING, UNMANNED AIRCRAFT AND REMOTE CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT, ARE PROHIBITED WITHIN A SPECIAL 3NMR UP TO AND INCLUDING 3000FT AGL OF ANY STADIUM HAVING A SEATING CAPACITY OF 30,000 OR MORE PEOPLE WHERE EITHER A REGULAR OR POST SEASON MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE, OR NCAA DIVISION ONE FOOTBALL GAME IS OCCURRING. THIS NOTAM ALSO APPLIES TO NASCAR SPRINT CUP, INDY CAR, AND CHAMP SERIES RACES EXCLUDING QUALIFYING AND PRE-RACE EVENTS.
I'm sorry about the All-Caps, but that's the way they roll.

And that's a very specific, constrained restriction compared to the #NoDroneSign. I do really like the last line of the sign, which I think means "We will tell on you".
