Any R/C Nitro Boaters in Spokane area?

HI I just joined the group and I recently became interested again in R/C Nitro Hydros and tunnel Hull boats. I retired and moved from San Diego CA to Spokane Washington State. Just getting back into it. Would like to associate with others with same interests and find a good legal location to run these boats?
I am searching for a small 8ft row boat to recover dead boats before I really get going again. Been using a Kayak but not stable enough for an old man. Taken a couple dips already. Anyway is there others in my location with similar interest?
Lots of lakes but which one?

Check with www.namba.com as there are several clubs in the area. There is a Lake Waughop where a lot of boaters run at. OB tunnel boat guru Jerry Dunlap lives in the area so he'd be one to hook up with.

Or if you head up to the great white north, namba16.ca races in Calgary/Edmonton. Al Hobbs usually makes our races from Montana but it's a few hours longer drive for you.
I think your looking at about 5 hours to Waughop Lake and about 8 hours to Calgary.
But if you are ever up this way look us up.

R/C nitro boats Spkokane area

A couple of nice reply's but what about locally ? Need to just have some fun and do some testing and tuning, any lakes locally around Spokane valley? I even bought a little 8 foot skiff and 3 HSP motor to recover dead boats. Anyone else in the local area of East Spokane who knows of a small lake or pond which would be allowable to run The R/C nitro boats. Ron L

I live in the Spokane area and run a few electrics. I'm looking to get into nitro/gas boats. I have been running at lake liberty but I'm looking for places closer and thinking about starting a RC Club if i can get enough people.
