To anyone interested:

Several of us modelers located in the Central Florida Region have been discussing the possibility of starting a local Model Car Club that would meet in the Orlando area. At this time we would like to gauge the interest of other modelers in the area to see if there would be enough interest from the local modeler to justify a new Model Car Club in this region. The club's focus would be on all things automotive including cars, trucks, bikes, street rod, classics, racing of all types, etc... We would welcome all ages and all skill levels and our focus would be on sharing knowledge, sharing our work - finished and in progress projects, bench racing and generally having fun (mostly having fun) talking about models and real cars and racing in a non-competitive environment.

The overall goal of the club will be to create an environment where us automotive modelers can share and enjoy our hobby with other automotive modelers, simple as that!

The purpose of this post is to see how many people might be interested.

In order to keep the size of this post under control and topic of this post focused on it's intent I would like to ask all forum members that may be interested in the club to reply in this post letting us know you're interested but then direct any questions or concerns to us through the email links provided below.

You can email us at:
ericcole_731@hotmail.com (Eric Cole)
caddguy025@netscape.net (Matt Wadlinger)
scrappyj1@aol.com (Dirk Joseph)

Anyone of us will be happy to answer any of your questions.

Thanks,
Eric, Matt and Dirk
