I need some pictures of the area, looking to possibly do a national event there. Any help with pics and info would be appreciated.

Hereís a couple pics of the area and a few small events that have been held there, nothing on a national level as far as Iíve been a member of the group, but would be pretty stoked if there was some more major interest in it. I really love the terrain in the whole park. Itís mostly slick rock, but it has everything, truly an Rc crawlers dream!

John,
I have reached out to some of the crawlers I know here for more pics of Belle Isle. This is a state park which has a web page with some pics.

Richmondoutside.com Ľ Belle Isle (JRPS)

I also sent you a PM with a contact that might be able to help.

This where where VARCOR ruled when there was comp crawling in VA. Sadly it does not have accessibility for a National event. Difficult and long trek for that kind of event. Also its very sensitive to rain, one day it can be above water and the next below depending on mountain rain/snow melt.

Kbrog, Mariner, and I have crawled every inch of that place.

If there was a scheduled event with the city aware, I'm sure they could open up the access roads to get vehicles onto Belle.

What Rowdy said. Even on a good day it still has many water dangers on all courses.

Anybody going to the event down there May 12th? Saw a sign for an event there at Hobby Town, plan on taking my 5 year old son down so he can check it out, see if he takes some interest in RC by seeing other people running, etc.

Hi folks. I live in Charlottesville and am just getting back into the RC Crawling scene. I'm a bit older - owned a ton of Tamiya cars/trucks back in the 80's and recently pulled the trigger on a new RedCat Gen 8. (Yes, I know it isn't an Axial - please don't judge me.)

Is anyone in the area or is there a club to join so we can get together?

Thanks. Looking forward to meeting new folks and diving back into this great hobby.

Where and when does the group meet up. I have a Traxxas TRX-4 Land Rover and Thinking about getting my son a Traxxas TRX-4 Sport. We would be interested in viewing and participating in the fun.

Thanks,
Brett
