Spring Scale Boat Pool Run

Mark Weber will be hosting a BBQ for scale RC boaters. This is a backyard BBQ and boat run, so get working on your smallest boats!Saturday, March 14
11:00am – 3:00pmThe pool is 18’x40′, so shorter and highly maneuverable boats would be best for this run. This is also a great opportunity to run your submarines.Events:

1) Navigation Course: We’ll have a mini navigation course and some other challenges setup.

2) Lunch: $10 covers pizza & drinks.  Feel free to bring a snack to share.

3) Raffle: David Alvarez was given a bunch of scale RC boats. He’s been kind enough to redonate them to group members through a raffle. They all need lots of work but should be some interesting projects.

4) Trading Table: Have a boat or something to sell, bring it along for sale or trade.
This will be a kid-friendly event but the pool is not heated and will be too cold for swimming.
As this is at a private residence, please RSVP with David Alvarez (8five8-272-634zero) or Mark Weber (6one9-392-953zero) who will give you the address and directions.
