"Introduction to RC Tanks" Day - 10/12/17
« on: September 01, 2017, 09:56:47 AM »
Hey there Victorian tank fans ( and other states if you want to travel )

VicArmour will be running it's first dedicated Introduction to RC Tanks Day at our Club Meet and Chritmas party on Decemebr the 10th ( due to severe weather warnings for the 3rd ).

Over the past few years we have had many people express their interest in our hobby who may not have RC tanks (yet ) and we've not seen them at meets since.

We decided to put on a dedicated Newbie meet with plenty of Loan tanks, all set up in different ways ( configured with upgrades etc. ) to give you a chance to see how each runs and drives

Driven by YOU

For more information and to advise you will be attending - call Gary on 0400225186

Thank you for your wishes Damo

We have over 50 people on our Club email list, yet see 15 to 20 of them throughout the year, so we hope to get some of the others to experience the hobby "hands on"

I will certainly give you an update after the event.

Hi HH fans,

We have had some interest in the Intro Day so we're looking forward to some new members on the day

The Club put in a big day in the backyard a few weeks ago after poisoning the area the month before and it's back to being usable again !

Time to start testing "Loaners" so they get that hands on experience

Plenty of tanks For Sale too

Pics soon
