Day 0 - Many thanks to Dean for slogging through the wet grass and mowing our battle ground repeatedly.
It was a good day with many of us bringing out the props and installing them. The group dinner at St. Louis Bar & Grill was decent as well. It's gonna be a fun mud fest for all the tanks running around.

Day 1 - Morning of sprinkling/misting rain slowly cleared up to overcast and dried up the field well enough to play! Took a ton of images, but forgot the SD Card reader so no images tonight. Will take more tomorrow.
 
Highlights!
Got to meet Brian Jakubson, Nicholas Moran, and Quemapueblos of War Gaming (World of Tanks)
Got to meet and talk to scores of people about RC Tanking!
Got to watch and listen to those wonderful Leopard tanks.
Got to completely strip out gear teeth from my KV-1! Woo, an excuse for a steel gear set!

Day 2 - A supremely gorgeous day for tanking. Did I mention I love talking to people about tanking?
 
Highlights!
See the first line of highlights above, and do it again! Great bunch of guys.
See line 2, always fun...
Video recorded the Aquino battle.
Won the World of Tanks Contest and got to be the Tank Commander in a Leopard 1A5 Vs Leopard 1A5. That was GD AWESOME!

Many thanks to Dean also for all his work. I think he is wanting to run for some office and was practicing at the event. I am questioning his heritage. LOL Thank you personally Dean for all you have done for me.

Oh and if you will indulge me ,there were a couple of other club members that were able to check off a " bucket list " item with a ride along in the Leopard. A thrill for both of us.





When dad  lowered his little guy into the tank.....




...he disappeared completely .

I was thinking that some of us wanted to see some close up details of the tanks we love Smile (All of them...)
Congrats on the bucket list check off. I lucked out in that it wasn't even on my bucket list... Just at the right place, right time, with the correct answer!
