Curious if there's enough people that do not like to play in real dirt? If so, we can accommodate with an area for rubber as well.

wish i could play in the dirt. only have a KH and flatbed. there's a **little** chance that ill have a dirt mover of some kind by then. what is there to do recreation wise around town? if im able to make it, my wife and 2 daughters will be with me. They might have some interest to watch, but i know 2 of them will eventually get bored. my 4yo, she'll be right there all day. are tanks allowed?

I'm going to try to make the show...will bring all my tucks and stay for a day and head home or get a hotel if we get a good turn out.


As far as meterial I will haul what ever everyone wants. Personally I like anything the trucks can easly drive on and machines can dig,push in...

I'd be up for the trip. It would give my truck a chance to play with others for the first time.

There's a nice kids park/playground in town about 5 minutes from the field. We will also be right by a railway museum that should be running diesel or steam locomotives. I am also planning on building a sandbox so kids can play with all my bruder toys on the side.

Tanks would be fine. You can bring any RC vehicle or plane. It's nothing special, but there's an offroad track in the back of the facility. Anything that's not slow scale speed will be asked to drive off the main truck/construction site. No reason to damage a quality model with a basher.

understand completely on the speed issue. no issue with that at all. she's only 5 so she'll be using my tamiya tank instead of her henglong, i can limit its speed. her HL is wide open only in both forward/reverse so its not coming.

planes, hahaha, i got em, never learned to fly them. now gotta sell them. too big to ship.

i'll tell the wife about the museum and park. hopefully between them and shopping choices, hopefully they'll be happy.

I'm sure you were thinking of me when you dreamt this idea and I thank you for the consideration, but unless the date changes to early or mid July? I won't be able to attend to after I retire 15yrs now.

You are doing a great job with the planning/organizing of such a show Nathan, I'm sure it will grow to be one of the best shows to attend every year in no time.

I'm aware of the timing conflict this is going to pose to farmers. It's a bummer for sure. Maybe an option would be to rotate the dates every year so we can get you down here.
