Mike, 2 parts to the question as there's 2 groups of guys I fly with. The local Hong Kong group mainly flies F3F, maybe 10 or so of them have DLGs, but they are not very active. The TS had 8 guys signed up and 7 guys flying.
Now, the other group I'm part of - SCSA - has about 20 guys flying DLGs and we're getting new members all the time, with about 11-14 actively flying contests. We're setting up for a monthly league starting January as well. This group really just started out as a couple of us early this year and it's grown a lot. The skill level is improving very quickly as well.
We get a little bit of media attention in Hong Kong, and quite a bit of media attention in China, and so that's helped us grow as well. Since the beginning of the year we've been on 4 or 5 different TV stations, and a couple magazines, I think there's another magazine that's lining up a series of articles with another club member.
Things are looking really cool over here right now!! There's nowhere else I would rather be
