Default Danbury area crawlers

Hello all,

Recently I have talked to 3 or 4 guys from the Danbury area that in to crawling. I am writting this to not start a club, but just have a general forum to talk to each other. I know that ECRC has comps near us and starting a club would be redundant, so I just want to write that we have an active forum post where we can post on a common thread about crawling in our area. Please chime in with a post to back me up. I think if we can develop a following of crawlers in our area we could also get some or the ECRC guys to head out our way for GTG's (not saying they wouldn't)

Ultimately I would like to see this thread be a:

1.) Meet and greet post for area crawlers
2.) Activities, when your going crawling (if you want some company, Instead of crawling by your lonesome
3.) Great places to crawl in our area
4.) Show off your Danbury area crawling rig
5.) Schedule a gathering, maybe in conjunction with ECRC

I would like to see people get active as we get into a nice spring season and into the summer and fall, I think there is enough interest in our area to need a common ground for western CT folks.

Thanks,
Ryan

Default Danbury Crawler

I live in Danbury, in the Arlington Woods condos off of Shelter Rock.
I'm up for crawling in Danbury/Bethel area.
I have an MRC and a Creeper, No pics of my crawlers yet.

I work Mon thru Fri but I could do an evening or two and Saturday after 10:00

I live in Bethel and I'm up for crawling (or any other RC activity) most weekends and evenings. I have a MRC and several other larger crawlers as well. My son and I often go to Huntington State park in Bethel/Redding to crawl or use our scalers. I would be interested in knowing where others crawl in this area.

Thanks,

Steve

NICE, I think I would go to the scale comp as long as a few guys where gonna play around after the comp with some 2.2's! Any of you guys gone over the boarder into ny state to check out any of the spots out there? I hear GAliMods maybe has an indoor course?

Later,
Ryan

I imagine Gallimods is about 1/2 hour from you, but Pin Shop in Oakville, CT (above Waterbury) has a nice indoor crawling course. They have expanded on it since the first time I went there and it was a lot of fun for a 2.2.

We'll get a bunch of us together in Danbury soon I'm sure.

I also have GTGs at my house. We BBQ, crawl on my rock garden and jump some bashers off my big wood ramp. It is always a great time.

Gallimods is a hobby shop in NY.
