Hello,
I'm Psychomonkey RC from Sioux City. There are a few of us around here. Bart is right, most of the crawling we do is in Omaha, NE. Check the Ne thread. We are inbetween summer and winter seasons for crawling right now.
The best place close to us is Sioux Falls, SD. Check out the pictures from our comp there this summer. Pics here http://s794.photobucket.com/albums/y...CA%20Comp%206/
Hope to meet up with you.
Chad

Yeah from what I've seen Omaha is were most of the action is. They mostly run 10th scale there. Im kinda a super junky but I can see from a " having room" stand point 10th is the way to go. Now when you talk about sioux falls do you mean the fall or hobby town?

The Falls themselves. Great place to run anything, even supers.

Sorry everyone, work has kept me pretty booked for the last good 'while.

Super?

Did someone say SUPER?



The falls in SF are very super friendly, but definitely a good time for any class.

The rock park I have here in Le Mars is fun, but not challenging for super class.

There are plans in the near future to assemble a RoxBox type facility near Webster City. IaROCK has acquired a 20x30 building. So that will be an option soon.

That's the one!

Sioux City guys have a nice spot....Supers work there, but much more fun in 2.2.

A couple of Clod axled NN supers, a RockForce axled Hustler shafty super, 2.2 MOA LCC, ya never know what I throw together...LOL

Hit me up next time your going to be bashin' in LeMars, I'll try and swing by. Just started toying with a 2wd brushless slash on 3s....good times!

Logs and sticks are lighter than rocks to carry. You can nail them together or just stack em. A home made modular course is fairly easy to build and in-expensive. Good excuse to get some beverages and buddies together to slop some mud around Maybe some bridges out of small cable and eye bolts. Trimmed to shape boat dock foam blocks. Coat it in something fairly durable. Stucco works from what I've read. Sky's the limit really. Weight is the biggest obstacle. cause you'll probably have to move it around. Whether it be to rearrange or clean out the space for something the wife wants instead

Good ideas... I thought at one time you were talking about an indoor course around here .. Box of Rocks? How's that project going?

Mad Dawg found a space to build. It's three hours away from me and I don't think much has happened. If there is a build day and I get all my list done around here we'll get started. I have my modular course that will some day get mobilized

Which direction from the school is this rock garden? I'm in Le Mars and am getting an scx10 tomorrow and just was curious where it was at.

The rock park is on the next block south of the elementary school, and two blocks east. Hit either myself or one of the other local guys up and we can point ya right to it.
