Ready to Race, let’s go!!
We had our March meeting yesterday and there are a couple new items to let everyone know about.
First, the October Turkey Shoot is back on by popular demand. There had been many requests for us to bring it back. This will be a sanctioned race and count toward High Points. When the flyer is complete, I will post it to the races page. The race will be October 7 2018.
Pond cleanup has been scheduled for April 7; with the backup date being April 14 if we are rained out. We will start at 8:00 am. Look forward to seeing everyone there. Once everything is done that needs to be done, there will be open water.
We are going to host 2 races this year to help balance out the race schedule in the district. This will help all members of District 4 to have a little bit of a break between races.
Our Season Opener will be on May 19th and 20th. Last year we started to have a cookout of sorts the night before the race. This seemed to go across very well. It is a lot of fun. Great way to get to know your fellow racers.
We will be having our next race on July 7th and 8th. This will be the Fire Cracker Challenge. We hope to have a great turnout this year as we have had in the past.
We are hosting a third ‘race’ of sorts, which will be a Regatta. This will be on Aug 25. This will be a much different format than we usually host. There will be a mix of boats. From race ready, to pleasure cruise boats. ‘Play’ boats are welcome as well as pretty much any type of RC boat. If you would like to run your RC boats, please bring what you have, and we will get you on the water. More information will follow very soon.
As always, one of our number 1 goals is to grow RC Boating. The more people we have involved the better the experience. The competition and comradery are key.
We have added a new Facebook group that we are leaving open to the public so that any updates are seen quickly.

Badger Model Boat Club was founded in 1971 and has been slowly evolving as the years have passed. We are a club that is recognized by the IMPBA. Most members have been with the club or around model boating for a while and are more than willing to help new boaters in their quest to build or pilot a faster boat.
There are 2 IMPBA sanctioned races that will be held at Badger Pond this year. Go to the Race Information link to find out more.
If you would like to learn more about the club, please visit the Contact Us page. There you will find contact information.
