All the big rocks are gone. There is only about 2 truck bed loads of smaller rock left.

When Draper and I spoke last, he said the plan was to have a comp on Sunday and then move the rocks after the comp or a couple days later.
There were plans for this material, so a bunch of us are getting the short end of the stick.

Not to take sides or anything...

1. They wanted the rocks gone asap
2. first come first serve
3. the guy was moving the rocks out during the comp
4. if you wanted the rocks, you should have made the comp
5. if you couldnt make the comp, you should have made plans to have someone get them

On a personal note, I wanted to make lake 35 yesterday, but I wanted to thank Mike for trying with the series and give credit to all who tried to help make this work. This was probably our last comp indoors for a while. I would have been willing to put some rocks in the truck bed, but noone contacted me about them and I certainly would have been able to load them. I wanted the rock too. I thought it would have been great to have rsrc or stl crawl get them, but noone came to claim them. The guy who took them lives in Illinois about 30 from Glidescope. He plans to hold comps so atleast the rocks will be put to good use.

Me and Bruce was the guys that got the rock to make the course happen I knew nothing about the rock being moved till yesterday or after the lake 35 comp I've would have got it. Me and Bruce built the course spent the money in gas and made the 120 mile round trip to build it Glidescope just offer a place to build it and make money on it. So the Stl Crawl/RSRC guys built the course and we used my truck and trailer. You should of thanked us

Default Rocks

Ok guys i don't have the internet so i was unable to get on and post about what was going on but the hobby shop is closing and they needed the rocks gone asap. I am sorry to anybody that had plans for the rocks or anything else over there. I had a guy standing there that had his truck and trailer with him so I told him to load them up and take them. Once again I am sorry to everyone that had plans for them but i needed them gone ASAP. As far as trhey guy that took them he has a big place up in Brighton, IL it is about 30 minutes north of Glidescope in IL. He also has a big offroad track at his house. I will have him get on here and post something whenever he gets it all ready to go.


I would also like to thank everybody that showed up yesterday and I know that most of you guys had an outdoor event for the points and all that so no big deal.

Default Glidescope still there?

Hey I'm new to RC and the phone number was down. I was just wondering is Glidescope Hobbies closed or is it still up? I was looking for an indoor offroad track and heard that at one point there was one here.

I have been told that they are still there but only run M - F now and have quit running on the weekends. That was 2 or 3rd hand info.
