    Sunday looks like it may be doable to run. The rain should be over by then hopefully.

    If weather holds out we should be running in Bradenton Sunday. Brian (RCKong) and Rich (Richard) are down that way. You could shoot them a PM.

    Weather is looking o.k. for Sunday so far.

    Who is in and what are you bringing?

    There are still several notable members who have yet to renew their NAMBA membership.

    Did you guys get a chance to run today (1/11)? What times do you normally run on the two Sunday's a month?

    I just got back into RC boating. Been doing 1/10 off road for awhile (just bashing) and occasionally fly with my dad down off of 69th St. E near Buffalo Creek Middle School. I have been into RC since I was a kid. Back in September 2015 my dad got our old 40" Wardcraft Deep Vee down out of the attic. He was going to give it away but I grabbed it, repainted it and converted it from nitro to FE. It is no where near what you guys appear to be running, but on its maiden voyage it was fast enough for me on half throttle. It still needs some setup work done to it I'm sure but it was pretty exciting.

    I live up in Tampa near downtown and will probably be running it in saltwater (I know, corrosive). It took awhile to get it cleaned up after the first run, but not too bad. I sprayed the heck out of the drive train with Corrosion X after rinsing everything in fresh water. Hopefully this will be enough to keep it clean.

    Anyway, just been lurking on your threads trying to see what's up. The pics of your boats on your website are very impressive.

    Take care,

    Matt

    Rich, I believe we need to have a club meeting to discuss club dues. I know it is difficult when everything is due at one time. As well, we didn't get to run a lot in the later half of last year, so most folks are wondering what they paid for last year. I think we should move club dues renewal to June, but we should discuss it as a group.

    Amen to that. Throw all the money spent on holidays and I am broke about now. I vote for June to break things up.

    A bit of news for those willing to travel. The speed control restrictions for IMPBA D13 (Atlanta) have been eliminated for the P-Ltd classes. Any speedo is now permitted. Next D13 race is in southern Georgia (Sowega model boaters) the end of February.
