RIGHT ON! MORE competition to add to the mix...

The first thing you'll want to do is get in touch with Jim Bickford and our club:

Puget Sound Fast Electrics (http://members.tripod.com/psfastelectrics5/)

Get signed up and get familiar with the maps to the race sites... We usually have at least 15-races a year, plus other racing opportunities.

On November 22nd, we'll be having our annual Winter Meeting in Tukwila, WA, about 20-miles North of Tacoma... This is where we lay out the schedule for the next season, talk about rule updates and the classes we'll be running, etc. I'll be there, as will Brian and the rest of the gang... You should definately be there if you can. Jim can give you more details.

Will be looking forward to meeting you!

I lived in a section of Tacoma called University Place, it is located on the east coast of Puget Sound north of the Narrows Bridge...its one of the better areas .....if you don"t mind the commute over the Narrows bridge Gig Harbour is nice

Pete, What class of boats are you interested in? The reason I ask is because there are 2 clubs in Eastern Wa.. One is RCU which is a 1/8 Scale Hydro club and the other is a club that runs both Nytro and Electric in various classes. Let me know or give me a call. Cell # 253-350-6728

Hi Jim,

Thanks for the reply :) I'm just getting into the smaller class brushless boats. I'd be interested in the Nitro/Electric club.

Thanks again for any contact info, I'll call you if I don't hear back.

Pete,

We will have a race in Federal Way Wa. on Sat. if you would care to come and race and hang out. I have some info from the Eastern club but I do not want to give the the phone out here, so give me a call. I have my cell on from 10:00 in the morning till about 10:00 at night. Are you on the west side or on the east side? Most of their group are in Yakima
