    For those of you don’t know it, we out here on “Lawn-guy-land” (you said that out loud for that NY effect, didn’t you?) teamed up late last year with a long time group called the “Empire State Model Mariners” based in Flushing, NY. They have a great run pond called Bowne Park and have been so welcoming that Ray Mason , Irving Loyd, Frank Salerno and myself became official members. So we get to eat free food when we run at our new to us club.

    It’s always about the food.

    Us bubbleheads also decided that we we needed more of an independent identity from anything else, yet still remain a part of the parent membership in Queens. WIth that in mind we came up with a moniker to call our little “sub-group”.

    Which led to this…...

    After much input and handwork from our very own Ray Mason and myself, we present the "must have" group "team spirit" Tee shirt of the year for the Empire State Model Mariner who also run RC Submarines!!

    Based on the RC Submarines uniqueness, and a tongue-n-cheek stab at Russia's "Beast Division" Group name, we refined to give NO doubt to the civilian RC Surface targets as to our determination, attitude, capability, and general persnicketiness!

    Plus the light color will prevent us old snowflakes from from passing out in the sun.

    With all the welcoming ESMM did for us we we want to show pride in being members of this amazing group of modelers who can teach us a thing or two about detailing.

    This Sunday at the AMA East Show I will be wearing a shirt the color was based on to get a better feel as monitors differ and this isn't really showing how nice it is.
