    Western Warship Combat Club (WWCC, Inc) is a NAMBA-registered California Big Gun club that has been continuously operating in the San Francisco Bay Area since the 1980s. As of May 24th, 2015, the club roster lists 43 members. Typically, 12-18 captains will put a boat in the water at any given battle, with a higher number participating in our annual Maker Faire events.

    WWCC is a 501(c)(7) corporation, registered in the state of California, with a 10-person Board of Directors. Officers include President, Vice-President, Secretary/Treasurer, two safety officers and two technical officers. The Board, elected by the club membership, manages the everyday operation of the organization, making decisions by majority vote. Larger decisions on important issues outside the scope of the duties of the Board as defined in the bylaws are decided by majority vote of the membership as a whole.

    WWCC generally holds 2-day combat events at Lake Minden RV Resort in Nicolaus, California (20 miles north of Sacramento), every 2 months during the Spring, Summer and Fall, with build days scheduled for the months in between. We also participate in special events organized by other organizations, such as hobby shows and RC events at flying fields, upon request. We build a pond each May at the Bay Area Maker Faire, and hold two days of combat, interspersed with hands-on training for people who wish to learn how to operate RC ships, sailboats and submarines.

    Our rule are similar to other Big Gun clubs, with a few minor differences. Any Big Gun captain is welcome to bring his/her ship to one of our combat events, and as long as it is within safety specs, and not wildly outside our penetration and speed rules, we're likely to allow it to run.

    WWCC encourages innovation and experimentation, and is currently deeply involved in developing 3D printing technology for the advancement of the RC Warship Combat hobby.
