We are planning a meet up in the Northern Illinois area May 14 around 5:30 pm.
Location is still flexible but right now, College of Dupage is where we set up.
Ramps, orange cones, tools or anything you can bring would be great.
If anyone has a better location or suggestions, post on this thread
keep an eye on the post as it might be updated as we get closer to the date!
Arrmas, Traxxas or any other brand is welcomed, we are here to enjoy the hobby!
Let us know if your going, Thanks

Based upon the last time I was at CoD, this is what I recommend:
1651898285140.png


Based upon the college's activity schedule, nothing should be occurring in this area, so the parking lot should be wide open.

Lets stay off the football/baseball/tennis areas so they don't get destroyed and we get kicked out. Assuming we don't get kicked out anyways, this could be a great place to meet up again in the future.

I'll bring a TBone Racing ramp along with a home made ramp.

My truck has a built-in generator, we can use it to charge batteries if necessary. Bring an extension cord and your charger if you're interested in this and willing to toss a few bucks in for gas.

My kids 3 y/o and 5 y/o will be coming along and maybe my wife as well. Might bring one of the kids power wheels to keep them entertained when they are done driving their r/c cars.

Good morning men thanks for the offer would love to make it but I have a ton of yard work to do since we finally got a sunny day around here. Have fun and take video and pics.

This sounds like a great time! I'll be there. Heck, I might bring a couple of friends who also love to run. Ty for the invite.

If it's raining/thunderstorm, we'll need to postpone to a later date for sure. I was watching the weather over the weekend and NOAA had only stated chance of showers, but they have certainly upgraded (downgraded?) it to chance of thunderstorms.

If we have to move the date, I'm good for the following weekend, either Saturday the 21st or Sunday the 22nd. Memorial day weekend I'll be busy getting my garden going.
