Dose anyone know of a Chicago based R/C Crawler club. If so could you please list a link or contact info here. I Yahooed and googled several searches and found nothing. I just want to be sure before I start a Local club.

Thanks, Mike

Jeepguy from here and at chitownrc.com was talkin about it, but I don't think it ever got going yet ? Check out the basher section on chitown and talk to a few guys that post about their crawlers and i'd be interested too! I'm about an hour south of chitown!

I considered starting up something.... There is Midwest That Mnster is the pres of but, they tend do all their runs in the IOwa/Wis area. It would be nice to have a local presence. I know its not tooo local but I have my large course near champaign that is always open to runs, well in travel distance to Chitown.

HobbyTown USA in Naperville is being kind enough to let us use their facility to hold meetings in their backroom. Also, registered club members will receive a 10% store discount.

Things on the agenda will be:
A name
meet and greet
meeting schedule
possibility of a comp series
Rules discusson (to make sure everyone is aware of comp rules)

Also, bring your truck, the course will be open and it will be a great time to work out those "bugs" you've had or even help you build that new truck.

Until we settle on a name I will send a notice to everyone on the signup list from my personal email to notify them (in case you miss this)

It will be a meeting... we will cover items important to forming a club such as sign up and deciding on a club name. After the meeting we will work on rigs and do some crawling
