Just a quick update to this post, and sticking it to the top of the website for the next 24 hours.
The Launceston Duck Race is tomorrow, and we’re joining with the guys from NWRCCC to put on an R/C demo. Check the thread and comments for details of where and when to meet. There is no cost. Hope to see you there tomorrow to fly the flag.
Now for the original announcement………
The Rotary Club of Central Launceston has invited us (Launceston R/C in conjunction with NWRCCC) to run a display day for EP and IC cars at this up coming event, the DUCK RACE. It is to be held on Saturday the 9th of April, along the Esplanade (in front of Boags) in Launceston. Ever seen over 5 thousand colourful little plastic ducks dropped from a helicopter? Yeah, it’s pretty cool!!!!
The event had sideshow rides and entertainment, food and drink vans, with the main event kicking off at 12 noon, the Duck Race/s. Everything for a family day out!! Buy a ticket on the day, as there is a car in it for first place!!! We’ve been given around 40 metres of road to set up a track to run on. We won’t be running a timing system, but timed demo races by class. I’ll be there with a couple of the lads at 8am setting up the track. As the crowds start to gather by 10am, we’ll try to be gathered and ready to go by 9am (it will be very hard to drive in after 9). Closer to the date, I’ll confirm which end of the Esplanade we will be at so you’ll know where you can park. So, whether you have the BIGGEST Monster Truck, or the smallest Tourer, it don’t matter, bring ’em all down for a race, if it’s got a remote, we’ll find a race for you to go in!!!!! So, show some support for our clubs, and help drum up as much intrest as possible. Click through and register your intent in the comments section.
