Reminder – RC cars at the Halifax Library on Saturday 25th March

Just a little reminder that Halifax RC Park will have a stand of RC cars to see at the Halifax Public Library this Saturday from 9:30am – 2pm as part of the Engineering Month Public Display. If the weather cooperates, then we’ll also be running them outside behind the library. Come say hi and talk to us about the hobby of RC cars.

RC display at the Halifax Central Library – Saturday March 25th 2017

March is National Engineering Month and RC car’s are all about science and engineering. On Saturday 25th March, the Halifax Central Library is hosting a Engineering Month Public Display from 9:30am until 2pm. The event is free to attend and we’ll be there with a selection of radio controlled cars among the other stands of science and engineering themes. Come out and learn more about the hobby of RC cars, or just to say hi.

Engineers Nova Scotia has a leaflet on their activities for the whole engineering month available here.

RC Cars at Rally In The Musquodoboit Valley – Oct 2nd

One of the local RC guys has been putting on a little RC car demonstration at this full-scale car show for the past few years, and this year some of us from Halifax RC Park will be there to join him. We’re looking forward to talking RC with anyone who is curious about the hobby. (In short, it’s fun, social, family friendly and anyone can do it!).

Hope to see you there.

CAMix Auto Show review

The Halifax RC Drifters (HRCD) shared their RC demonstration area with a few of us from the Halifax RC Park society. We all had a great time talking to you about the RC hobby and we hope you’ve found your way here to our website which has some great information for beginners in our menus above. Below are a few photos from the show and the HRCD crew have more photos on their Facebook group.

The guys at Halifax RC Drifters are again putting on a dynamic display of drifting at the full-size CAMix auto show in Dartmouth at the weekend (Sunday 21st August 2016 from 11-4pm). A few of us from Halifax RC Park will also be there at A&W Woodside in Dartmouth with an assortment of RC vehicles on display and to answer any questions you might have about the hobby. The CAMix show is free to attend but money is being raised for the Christmas Daddies charity.
