2012 NAMBA FE Nat's June 19th-23rd @ Legg Lake

It is my pleasure to announce the 2012 NAMBA FE Nat's, Title Sponsored by Steven Vacarro at Offshoreelectrics.com!

The event will be hosted by NAMBA District 19 clubs Scottsdale Model Boaters and SoCal FE on June 19th - 23rd, 2012. The location will be the infamous Legg Lake in S. El Monte, Ca. This facility is a dedicated model boat race pond, complete with a permanent course and concrete drivers stand with plenty of shade. It holds no less than 10 sanctioned NAMBA Gas/Nitro events there every year and it will be the first time an FE Nat's will be held at this location.

Lenny Blake from RumRacing Products is on board to call the race. Lenny has been calling the Az Winter Warmups races for the past 7 years, as well as numerous nitro/gas events and I'm excited to have him on board for this event.

We wanted to have the location and date locked down as early as possible to help facilitate racers planning, in addition to giving potential sponsors as much advertising time as possible. If you are in a position to be a class sponsor ($50) or help with our raffle, please let me know. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

The race will be held the week after Father's Day weekend, and I have been told that our date is far enough apart from the planned 2012 NAMBA Gas/Nitro Nats that there will be absolutely no conflict.

Information will be added to this thread as details develop.

Thank you for your consideration and support.

Race signups are open.

$25 first class, $10 each additional class. Payment deadline, as well as class cut off date (4 min to run) is May 19th. This also includes the banquet cost so I have an accurate head-count for the host hotel.

Banquet and shirt costs are still being finalized, but I'm shooting for $35 and $25 respectively.

OK to list on here or OSE your classes and also please PM me your email address and cell phone # if I don't have it already.

Thank you for your consideration, gentlemen! I promise you this will be an event worth attending. If you're on the fence, make the commitment. You won't be sorry.
