Event description

Description

Our annual 3-Day Spring regional battle for the southeast captains of our crazy but fun hobby, radio-controlled model warship combat. Mainly captains from the Southeast Attack Squadron (the southern chapter of the club) but all captains are welcome. This will be a 3 day battle from Saturday through Monday, with CO2 and lunches provided lakeside. First battle will begin by 9:30am each day. Expect to play two, possibly three, major battles each day. The lake entrance is actually across the street from the house address linked in the info, and the gate will be open Friday evening for any captains wishing to speed test or otherwise check ships prior to the weekend. Hotel info will be forthcoming.

Interested in learning more about out hobby? Guests and walk-in's are always welcome (safety glasses will be provided)
