    Hi Everyone,

    Happy Thanksgiving and greetings from Grand Rapids, Michigan! I hope you all are having a restful day. I figured I'd take a moment to introduce myself. I recently moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan to start a new job after graduating from grad school. As you might assume by this post, I'm new to the forum and frankly, more than new to the hobby. I've been following things from a distance over the past couple of years and recently became more interested in finally pursuing a build. Building and battling might be the perfect combination of my interest: RC, creativity, history...and hell, destroying stuff!

    What's the scene look like in Michigan these days? Based on what I can tell, it looks like a more active location compared to other parts of the country (which is encouraging). Would love to hear from others around the area!

    Best,
    Marcus

    You are in a good location for the hobby. @Panzer and @kgaigalas can probably help you out.

    That's great to hear, and I've sensed that based on what I've seen so far.

    Would be fun to connect next time people get together and see things in person.

    Hey--great to meet you! Sounds good. It looks like a lot of get-togethers happen over in Saranac as well?
