BIG donation!

Postby TMSmalley » Tue Jul 17, 2007 9:41 pm

Mike Caswell (http://www.caswellplating.com/models/) is going all out in the SubVendor business. He is donating a Revell Gato kit complete with a D&E 2.5 WTC outfit (he calls it a SubDriver) with a receiver and transmitter PLUS a Revell Type VII U-boat kit for day 2. This is a $700 + donation!

Mike also says he will have Propel and other expendables available at his vendor table at the regatta plus other goodies you might need at the biggest rc sub event in the WORLD!

Thank you Mike - It's great to have vendors on the scene that will step up and go big to support the hobby.

Remember to patronize vendors who support the SubCommittee!
