Issue #92 - June 2019


A Note From the Founder - Meet me in Maryland!

We have a new badge for RC vehicles that can be adapted for any RC vehicle you wish to learn about.  If anyone is interested in earning the RC Gas Motor Boat badge, we have been invited to the IMPBA (International Model Power Boat Association) national gas motor races at Fort Ritchie in Cascade, MD from June 27-29.    Entry is free of charge and I will have all information necessary to earn the badge.  Several of the racers have offered to tell the kids a bit about their boats and answer questions as well.  Anyone who attends and earns the badge will receive a coupon to the FG store to get the badge for free (shipping not included so I suggest ordering the badge with a larger badge order.)

If you plan to attend, make sure to bring a lunch, sunscreen and folding chairs to watch the races.  No pets allowed.  Races are from June 27-29 at Lake Royer at Ft. Ritchie, 14320 Barrack Ave., Cascade, MD 21719.  I am hoping I will have cell service at the race site, but am unsure as facilities are extremely limited.  If I do, I can be reached at 530-524-8799.  If you plan to attend, please RSVP via email to with the estimated number of people so that we can plan accordingly.  Thank you.
