There’s no guarantee of a good weather weekend coming up, but there is guarantee of a fun, interesting and exciting time at the Shearwater Hobby Show. This post is just a reminder that we’ll be at the show promoting R/C cars of all types from 10am-4pm at the SeaKing Club on Shearwater Base. If you can choose a day, then aim for Sunday 8th April as we’ll have a bigger display, with some hands on R/C parts construction for you to try. More details in our original post here.
This will be the 4th year we’ve been part of the Shearwater Spring Hobby Show and new this year is a stand location upgrade for us as the show that allows us to demonstrate R/C cars, and to show the more detailed technical aspects of the hobby (for the Sunday anyway).
On Saturday 7th, you’ll see our usual show stand where you can talk to us about the hobby of R/C cars, but on Sunday 8th we’ll have a carpet track setup to demonstrate some cars, plus an area where you can try your hand at building a component of a car, and watch and talk with members of the R/C community who are maintaining their vehicles in-front of your eyes. Our advice, if R/C cars is a big reason for you to come to the show, then make sure you come on Sunday 8th April!
When: Saturday 7th April and Sunday 8th April 2018, 10am- 4pm both days
How Much: $5 per person or $12 for a family. Tickets also give you access to the Aviation Museum which is a great walk around for kids of all ages.

Be warned that the Google Navigation directions don’t take you though the gate on Bonaventure St and you have to come in that way.
If you’re scratching around for something to do this weekend then how about coming along to the Shearwater Spring Hobby Show on Saturday 8th or Sunday 9th April (this coming weekend). We’ll be there with lots of cars and trucks to see, along with a few smaller ones to try for yourself. A few more details on our post from a few weeks back.

You’ll be able to see a wide variety of RC vehicles, and we’ll again have some mini-trucks for you to try. On the Sunday morning (10am-12noon) there are plans afoot for a larger indoor RC demonstration where we’ll have a track setup on a carpeted area (postponed until 2018 – we’ve been promised!). Come and say hi and look over the wide variety of vehicle types making up this fun and lifelong hobby.

Just a quick note of thanks to those of you that foregoed the amazing weather yesterday to stop by the Keshen Goodman Public Library to say hi to us. The guys from the Tamiya Crew had fun and we hope those of you that did visit managed to take a good and detailed look at all sorts of RC cars we had on display, or managed to see the drift cars running outside. We know we’ve got some of you thinking about a new RC car! Those of you that didn’t make it out we hope at least had some RC fun outside, and we ourselves were itching to hit the trails and tracks afterwards.
Don’t forget to bring dad (or the kids – if you’re a dad) to our free event on Saturday 18th June at the Keshen Goodman Public Library. Come and see modern and vintage RC vehicles from all disciplines and chat to some experience hobbyists about this fun, educational, and all-inclusive hobby!
