    imo 3 min. offshore is the way to go! our club runs 4 min. and with the longer coarse and dead boat retrive time makes for a much longer day and time bettween heats. just my 2 cents.

    I have a p-mono and a stock Proboat Blackjack 29 can I race both of these. Do you ever run Vintage scale hydros.

    Sorry Rich but we only race p-mono and scale hydros during the shootout.There's just not much interest in those classes here.

    The BJ will fit right in P-Ltd Cat oval however.

    I will try to get an answer this Sunday....our regular club attendance has been rather low the past few races,
    we will have to decide if we will hold the race this year. Thanks for the inquiry.

    Default Wave Blasters Cancellation

    The Wave Blasters met Sunday prior to our normal races.
    We discussed in detail the pro's and con's of trying to push
    along with our Annual Spring Shoot-out despite many
    obstacles. Weighing everything out we had a vote which
    was unanimous to cancelled the 2015 race and pick it
    up again next year. We also decided that we will have it either
    March or April depending on other races scheduled during that
    time period. Sorry for dragging everyone along, but hope
    you will be ready to give it a go again next year.
    We will make every attempt to have a schedule for this
    2016 Spring Shoot-out posted before the end of 2015.
    Hope to see everyone next year.

    Hey guys, to whom it may concern, West Fl. Model Boat Club has secured a new lake to run. Starting in June we will be running @ Tom Bennett Park in Bradenton, This is a much nicer venue and we will be able to host events. Once we get up and running the schedual will be posted on our site. http://www.wfmbc.com/WFMBC/Contact.html

    You got it Jeff, Our two clubs should get together at least once a year and have a club shoot out or something like that. Along with a bigger event too, at least we'll be able to do it now. Cause Sarasota County wouldn't let us do anything when we were @ Ackerman Park. We're in Manatee County now and they're going to work with us a little so we can have events @ Tom Bennett Park.
