Welcome to MSMBC & Club Schedule
We are a loose-knit group of scale model boaters in the S.E. Michigan area.

This club forum is used to post general club info.
Please post your fun-run photos in the club's fun-run thread, where the rest of the world is more likely to see them (and be entertained and amazed!):

Figures there is a club 15 miles from where I JUST MOVED FROM :p I literally moved across the state to 15 minutes from lake michigan. Do you happen to know of any clubs in my area? Between South Haven and Kalamazoo. If I am ever in the area, I will give you guys a shout!

I attended the Great Lakes Nautical Society's Model Boat Show at the Great Lakes Maritime Center in Port Huron today. Another fun event at a great location, right on the St. Clair River. I ran into fellow club member Steve Brown and his wife, from Traverse City, who brought down one of his boats. Our club was well represented as, between the two of us, we picked up 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the General Maritime (Non-Great Lakes) division. Unfortunately, my wife was out of town with my camera, so no pictures. Steve's wife took some pictures which I hope will be posted here or in the Fun Run thread. I encouraged the guys in the Great Lakes club to post some Pics as well, so maybe they will come through also.

I attended the St. Louis Admirals Regatta on Saturday and Sunday. Had a good time and reported out here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...5#post22896910. The new venue in Forest Park is really nice. I would highly recommend attending next year.
