Perhaps having west coast/east coast clubs is not a bad idea. I think convincing the wife that I intend to drive to Calif. for a Nats would be a bit difficult, and I am sure the west coast feel the same way about NC and Maryland. I have driven to TX and MO.
I think we need a few years back together before finding any issues. For the majority of the battlers, they will have fun locally or in their region. For the group that will usually go to national events, only a smaller sub-set would be able to travel to both events.
Myself I am going to see what I can do to get the NATS numbers up for 2017, 50+ would be great on the water.
There will not be a west coast NATS for the foreseeable future. The CA guys had no interest in coming to NATS (except one guy) no matter the location. When Randy hosted in CO only one CA guy showed up. Can't get much closer. I don't think Randy wants to host in CO again, too much work for him. As far west as you will go is MN, TX, MO all about the same drive from the east coast.
I'm skipping Nats this year because real life, not boat stuff. I'm pretty much as west as you get save for the Washington State crew.
I'll host Nats in Reno if the people want it. Good pond, lots of sage brush, slot machines.
I hope to attend NATS 2016 if I'm able to retire before July, as planned. Otherwise I'll be there in 2017.
Cool, I would like to finally meet you in person.
I'm up for Reno, especially if/when I pickup a JKU to go play in the sage brush
What are the temps during Nats?
Water temps Lou?
Reno, will we melt in July?
I always thought IRCWCC needed a better name. The current one is too long and really doesn't roll off the tongue. At least MWC was short, descriptive, and to the point.
Options for a new name or an MWC successor could be Scale Warship Combat or Naval Model Warfare or or Model Ship Combat or various combinations thereof.
WMCI is what you really want. Warship Model Combat, Inc.
Short and simple is the key. MSC rolls off the tongue quickly and easily; better branding And, the chance to be confused for the Military Sealift Command. I still like it But the name gets the function of the club across, and that' also good branding.
MWC was easier to explain to the US border guards. I don't see IRCWCC getting rebranded though
I have always just said IRC anyway.. I never understood the International on the name.. does IRC have out of country members?
Yes, there are a bunch of Canadians I believe.
Hahaa Sorry! I was thinking more off continent but yes Canada is a nation!!!
Yea Canada They keep Michigan's UP* from escaping! A!
It would be cool to have a "worlds" with a large amount of ships, but I think this will always be a niche hobby.
