    Come join us for three days of unlimited RC Submarine FUN!

    The Red Clay Resort features a beautiful spring-fed pool with crystal clear water and concrete shorelines, power, restrooms, on site concessions, and camp grills. The venue is only 15 miles from the nearest town and offers on-site dry camping with restroom access.

    Attendees will have the opportunity to run with other RC submarine skippers in perfectly clear water with onsite divers standing by to photograph and video your boat in action (and perhaps retrieve any unlucky boats that find their way to the bottom and stay there). Aside from the fun of networking with other sub captains, you'll have the chance to take in the massive assortment of other submarines, learn about new technology and techniques, attend onsite seminars, and participate in friendly contests for "Skipper's Choice" awards and prizes.

    No boat? No problem! Come and try out the dedicated "newbie" subs that will allow you to get some stick time in with real RC submarines before you make your choice about which boat to get yourself!

    Skipper all-access tickets are $45, spectator tickets are free.
    Pre-order yours here.

        I will be working on an event T-shirt design over the next week or so and will be offering them for sale for non-attendees and for free to attendees.

          That`s Cool Bob

          From a selfish side, a pocket on the shirt is desirable.
          Even the image for the event above looks Good.

            They will be t-shirts. Getting fancy with collars or pockets puts the price up considerably, unfortunately...

                Bob, Could you please add APO as one of the State selections for ordering the shirt? Thx


                • #9

                  That's out of my hands. My online shop is powered by third-party software. I didn't build it.
                  I'm happy to hook you up with a shirt by directly invoicing, however. Just need the go-ahead and an email address!

                    Thanks I sent a PM

                      Feel free to take a look at all of the RC submarine awesomeness. If you'll be joining us, feel free to print and fill out in advance. If you're still on the fence, now is the time to book your ticket(s) for this awesome event!

                          That is awesome photo and funny that water in the distance, no, just a mirage.
                          If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                              High Saturday, get this, 73 and humidity 57%. 55 Saturday night. Bring your jackets for night run. Thursday and Friday is 81 and Sunday is 75. Perfect weather.
                              Of the 40,000 men who served on German submarines, 30,000 never returned.”
