Great time at the "Proline By The Fire Survival 2023 " festival, crawl, convention, event, spectacle. Whatever you want to call it.
Here are some of the images and videos as seen through me and my camera.
I paid for the general admission which was 25$. It entitled me access to the whole park but not access to the games and competitions.
To the left of this vendor area was the camping area. Lots of people brought their trailers and motor homes. Some of them were even from out of state.
This thing was bigger than I thought.
The first you experience after buying your ticket was a vast open area surrounded by vendor booths. Some booths are the big boys like Redcat and Vanquish and others are people selling their products to the masses.
There were also some awesome manufacturer vehicles and parts on display.
Redcat even released some new vehicles at their booth.
And the customs!
There were lots of people there installing their new parts and working on their cars.
One of the things I find most interesting about a RC gathering is the way people carry their rigs.
Most people just drove them but there were a few that had to bring them all.
Once you pass through vendor park the real fun starts.
Games, contests and Scale City.
Scale City was awesome. As a sucker for scale stuff, I was in awe of some of the objects in the exhibit.
Here is some history of Scale City from My Trick RC
Once I voted I received a scale pizza box for my time.
Then came the crawling competitions. These competitions were held in the naturally rugged rocks that create the hillside of the event itself.
Loved seeing the youngins out there and interested in the competitions.
About this time I was hungry and like magic, there was my oasis.
Now on to more of the vendors.
One thing about the RC community is the small businesses that sell their own products. 3D printing has made a lot of this possible.
It was good to finally meet some of the vendors I had bought from in the past.
After checking my goodie bag, it seems the promoters packed some nice things.
Here is what I received.
All in all, it was a great time. The event organizers and people attending seem like a great group of people. Good attitudes and friendly demeanor's are all that I experienced.
I'll be there next year with my cars, camping and participating in some of the events.
