Hey Terry,

I guess I need to turn notifications on for this thread I'm just getting back to it now. Looking forward to meeting you and everyone else as well. A week ago I took a drive in my car to NW Ohio to meet and hang out with a favorite youtuber of mine "diggingwithmartin" what a great guy! I've also met and hung out with "SmallHaul" another youtuber RC construction equipment builder/mechanic and great guy as well. One thing I understand about this hobby is more time is spent working on, fixing, modifying and tinkering on them than actual "play time" and RTR comes with no guarantee it will work without leaks or problems!!! lol I have some abilities, but am very happy for the two gentlemen I just mentioned they are both currently working on my machines! SmallHaul is for hire and **** near a genius and diggingwithmartin is helping me out as I sold him my 4200XL at a really great price. I think he was getting close to a million hours on his 4200 😂😂😂 he really uses his all the time and works it in real dirt and digs hard ground. My goal is to get diggingwithmartin to come to Indy (Lebanon) for at least one of these meets. Please let me know email me if there is anything else I can help with. Maybe a truck load of dirt??

Frank

Frank-

Stay tuned to these post in regards to the Lebanon, IN show. As we get closer, you'll see the set-up schedule and etc, and see if you can help out. We can always use a little help and you can "pre-meet" some of the guys (and girls).

Bump to ask if anything new has been determined on the "Great big awesome new north of Indy (Lebanon) show that will make old Indy (Truck & Contractor) show feel shame"

Finalize date of show. And applying for a grant to help with site costs.

Stay tuned.

The facility is available for a couple weekends, so the event will happen, just when and at what cost.

Ok, so we lost out with the grant for this year.

But we have a building. It's big enough, about same size as what we had at the back to fifties show. Which oddly enough was more space by sqft then we had at Indy.

The mini pullers will not join us in January. It's too early for their "Runoff & test it before the season" timeline.

Cost - 20$ per adult driver (over 16) for the weekend.

Our room cost is $785 for the weekend. If we have fewer than 40 drivers then I will cover the difference and next year's will cover me.
Travis is looking into a raffle for a prize that could offset a desparity.
If we have more than 40 drivers then we will start a kitty for supplies, like duct tape, with the collected money.

Set up is January 19th
We are all out by early evening of the 21st.

If we have a good turnout, then we will get a bigger space next year. But the room cost goes up as well. So iff we get the word out and increase drivers then the per drive would go down. So talk to your buddies, and get more there.

I expect to keep the date the same if at all possible - (3rd weekend of January) but this is not totally in our control.


I had explained previously why I was so firm with the toy show people. I want and expect to get to a point where we have assistance from either the Tourist board or from a seller to assist with room cost. But at this time we must cover our own cost.
For those who like to have an audience (spectators), I implore you to bring friends and family.

Chris, this is great news, as I'm sure everyone shares my thought about the potential for this to grow into a great show for everyone interested in RC Trucks and Construction Equipment here is the States.

Assuming that my health holds, I will be there at least for one day. But more if I get a good report from my Doctor later this month and nothing else goes wrong.

Let me know if there is something I could help with "behind the scenes" that isn't dependent on me being there the whole time. I'm home recovering and available to do something.

Are you going to place "flyers" on other sites for this? Thoughts about how to get the word out?

Thanks to you, Travis, and the "others" for getting this going for us in the hobby.

I appreciate the work you all have done, thank you.

Looking forward to the event,

Jim

GREAT news Chris! I had a possible conflict for the next weekend (Sat 27th), so that'll work for me.

Keep us posted if you need anything.
