Ok here is the heads up again for the hobby show this upcomming weekend in Monroe. The NW R/C Shipmodelers are planning on a whole lot of fun events on the water this year. Bring boats to run, show, trade, but above all come on out for a fun day or weekend of all r/c modeling fun. I wil be there helping a vendor again and maybe some run time on the pond.

Not a problem a snot very one always makes it. Best thing ab out the Hobby Expo is getting to see all the old freinds, meet new ones, and talk to people about the hobby and try to get them started. Since I work in the Scale Shipyard booth, I spend a lot of time talking about warships and history with many ( not to mention tugs as well). Good time to catch up with pold freinds when the business side slows down in the evening and maybe even get a chance or 2 to go run boats in the pond near by....
Note to all those loking at going: the hours have been exstended to 8pm on both Friday and Saturday nites.
