Well here it is.

Glenwood R/C and All About hobbies will be joining forces for the future of R/C

We will be going on a joint venture to bring you a Year round 10th scale indoor dirt offroad facility as well an onroad outdoor track in the summer months
. Glenwood will be puting the track in the back the back of the 8 thousand square foot building With All About Hobbies putting a full line hobby store up in the front. The blacktop apron in the back of the building is aprox. 70 x40 for onroad. and possible oval. in the summer months.

there are three seperated areas in this building . one for the store one for the pits and one for the track.

Where is this building you might ask ??????
on Seneca Street in the town of Elma just miles from the Jamison road exit on the 400!!!! 10 to 20 min from just about anywhere in the burbs.

so this is it !! you all asked for it, so we bring it to you.
this is the next step in the grand plan of things. to put WNY on the map as a powerhouse of R/C.

more details to follow. so hang in there and get your gear ready. as we are hoping to be open for racing by the second week in nov. with a grand opening in begining in December.

also as a point of intrest Glenwood R/C will still be doing a full race schedual at Holland Speedway

Mike dont know if you will need a table or not.
we have enough pernamint pit spots for 36 people and overflow for 10 or more . some tables ,some higher pits like the last place ( stool seating.)

I dont know what to excpect. but i think we will have a full house this weekend:thumbsup:

so yes bring a chair:lol:

there is a outlet for almost every pit stall.

but a cord and 6 way never hurt
