    Default West Florida Model boat club, Sarasota, FL

    Since we have undergone quite a few changes over the last several months and the "New Florida Fast Electric Club" thread is getting extremely long, we have found it best to start a new thread. We have a new website up and running WFMBC.com that Bill (34207) has been doing an incredible job with. In it you will find information about the club, a map of our location, contacts for northern, central and southern counties as well as past event vids, pics etc.

    Please bear with us in the construction of our new website. Also, follow this thread for and cancelation of scheduled runs or additional non scheduled runs we may have.

    Thanks and happy boating,
    Scott and the WFMBC crew

    After going MIA for a while yesterday it looks like the club threads are back.
    The title on this one is working well as a google search for "rc model boat club sarasota" puts this thread in the top 5 matches.

    On another note, I got a NAMBA packet in the mail yesterday. On the back of the propwash magazine is the 2012 application.
    I went ahead and scanned it to pdf as soon as I got to work and will include it here for anyone that is needing one.

    So I guess all our posts in the old forum are gone? Bummer! I had just put up a bunch of for sale stuff to let the club guys get first dibs. I guess it's off to the swap shop now.

    As most of you know, I have to get out of the hobby due to health. I have a lot of stuff for sale. Let me know what you need, I may have it. I'd rather offer the stuff to our club members before sending to the swap shop.

    Looking really good now. Although, for some reason it didn't send me the email notice of new posts.
    Guess we'll have to start checking in a little more often.

    Checking in... finally. The re-format threw me for a loop. When I couldn't find the forum/thread I started to get all jervous and nerky.

    All better now.

    Scott - thanks for starting the new string.
    Bill - thanks for the WFMBC web site and all your hard work.
    Jim - take care of yourself, and don't be a stranger.


    And while I'm at it --
    Steven Vaccaro - thank you sir, for a great site.

    Chris,
    I'll be down on the 13th to bring the paperwork to Scott and deliver a couple of boats I've sold. Thanks for asking!

    Who will be there on the 13th? I have three boats to deliver. Hugh, Brian, Scott. Please let me know for sure if you will be there. I won't bring the boats if you won't be there.

    anyone interested in my Cobra tunnel complete except receiver? The transom needs repair. Hit a turtle or something last time run. I don't think it's a very serious fix. It has OS lower unit, UL-1 motor, Swordfish esc. She runs good! Will sell for $175 or $250 if I repair it!

    The motor, esc, and lower unit alone are well worth $175!

    I plan to be there but you're not bringing me anything. It was hard not to jump on your old LSO cat but between AMA dues, NAMBA dues, and the flying club dues, I'm running a little tight on boating funds right now myself. My old van crapping out and having to replace it last month didn't help either.

    I'd really rather keep the tunnel intact. I'd want $125 for the lower unit and motor anyway. Why not get the entire boat RTR (no receiver) for $50 more?
