Nope. That's between the pilots and the FAA and only LEO's and FAA Supervisors should ask you for it.
This is a screenshot directly from the AMA's website and it states their stance on it as well -

See ya there once again! Had a great time last year despite the momentary severe thunderstorm that got our attention. Plenty of delicious mud bugs for dinner!!! Woot!
Chacy, how's the progress of that "stuff" straight out from the airfield we'll call a housing development?

Glad to hear it! Gonna be Fun!
They have most of the utility work done and have started paving the roads in there. Not nearly as much traffic as there was when they first started it.

You and Clarke come on down.
