Help Wanted!

Hi All,

As discussed in the previous post, we're looking to kick things back into gear here at BAPRCC. However, the new approach will focus on BAPRCC becoming the #1 online destination for local Bay Area RC enthusiasts to gather, exchange ideas, pics, videos, etc. While we would still love to do in-person meet ups, we'll let those happen organically. Of course, we'll continue to sponsor and encourage them as often as people want, but formal meets will be less frequent than before.

With all that said, we need a handful of volunteers that would like to help helm the club (via helping update this blog, the Facebook page, etc). If you have a strong interest in RC and want to help, drop us a line! There is no minimum commitment - just put in what you have time for!

Happy RC'ing!

We're BACK!!

Hi All,

Obviously, this club hasn't been active since early 2010. A lot of things changed with many of the founding members, but I personally would like to take another stab at this again soon. (Perhaps in fall of 2011 or early 2012). Please respond to this post or send an email and let us know if you are interested and your level of commitment. Hopefully we'll generate enough buzz to get this going again.

Also, please check out and leave comments on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bay-Area-Peninsula-RC-Club/31108109118?v=wall

Regards,
BAPRCC

Happy 2010!!

Hi All,

The club has been in hybernation for some time, with members doing their own thing, but it's time to get the show back on the road! We're looking to meet up soon and do come catch up. Login to the message boards and let us know when you would like to meet!

We'll post back here once we have a time and place.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Remembering Frank Rochex - Talbot's Toyland's Hobby Dept.

Hello All,

I am sad to report that a good friend of Bay Area RC'ers and Hobby Enthusiasts, and someone who encouraged the creation of the BAPRC Club, passed away suddenly last week. Chances are that if you ever stumbled into Talbot's Toyland during the last 35 years, Frank Rochex helped your Hobby dreams come true with his guidance, abundance of information, and friendly demeanor.

Frank was always someone I could depend on at Talbot's Hobby Department. I literally grew up going to see him, and all the amazing RC Vehicles and Trains in his Dept. It's truly shocking that he is gone at such a young age, and he will be sorely missed. My thoughts and prayer's go out to his family, friends and co-workers. On behalf of the Bay Area Peninsula RC Club, we give our deepest sympathies and condolences.

We hope to put on a club sponsored event at Talbot's Toyland sometime in the coming months, and would appreciate any support you can show to promote the RC hobby, Talbot's Toyland, and most importantly, remember an awesome guy. We think he would really appreciate the gesture.

Thank you.
-Bryan "B-Dog"
Loyal Talbot's Toyland customer of 30 years.
