HNMC Rock Crawling Grand Opening 2018 Report


After long discussions over the last few years about building a rock crawling course, John Geaves at the end of 2017 said he would take the lead on this project. John had been to the Fairlop Rock Crawling course and enlisted the help of their course builder, Neil Smith (N Design Bodyshells).

The plan was to cater for Rock Crawlers and Scale Crawlers. Materials landed on site and John and Neil set at a rate of knots building the course and within a couple of months it started to look impressive.

Then with the help of CML Distribution, Herts RC Models and Logic RC the date for a grand opening was set.

Despite the terrible weather, snow blowing in the wind with sub-zero temperatures, we had throughout the day 25-30 die-hard rock crawlers and scalers in attendance.

HNMC would like to say thank you to Jason Huntley from CML Distribution and Stewart Wilcox from Logic RC who provided demos all day. Also a big thank you to CML Distribution and Logic RC for their ongoing support.

The club looks forward to more crawler open days and improving the course and if it becomes popular extending it further.
