Active Clubs in District 8


Electric Scale Unlimited

As pioneers of a growing 1:10 Scale electric hydro class, the goal is to continue to duplicate real unlimited hydroplane racing as closely as they can. Since their inception in 1993, they have not only tried to recreate the boats from several eras, but to encourage a spirit of fun, respectful competition and camaraderie within their membership.

If you’d like to find out more about Classic Thunder, what they do, how to get involved or if you simply have questions, feel free to contact them.

Electric Scale Unlimited

ERCU is a club that was formed in the Seattle area by a dedicated group of individuals who enjoy building and racing models of some of the great and not-so-great unlimited class hydroplanes from the past and present.

In 2003, Electric Radio Controlled Unlimiteds (ERCU) came into existence, as an organization modeled after RCU, and the younger club has quickly become the world’s largest fast electric scale hydroplane club.

RC boat racing in the North Puget Sound

During the 1960’s and 70’s, the primary site for radio control boat racing was Green Lake in Seattle. Shortly after the 1973 NAMBA nationals , the city of Seattle changed its policy and no longer allowed any form of boat racing on Green Lake.  At about that same time, the need for fill dirt during I-5 construction north of Marysville created two small lakes that became Gissberg Twin Lakes County Park.

Paul Roth an  Everett RC racer saw this and along with Ed Fisher, Roger Newton and Ron Erickson  checked it as a possible RC race site, liked what they saw and went to Snohomish County and worked out terms for model boat racing. The first race was held in late 1973. Thus began the long history of Northwest Roostertails and RC racing at Twin Lakes.

Over the years with support from Snohomish County, the site has been improved and upgraded. It is a great venue for racing.  They run many classes of boats. If you have one, bring it to an event and they will find a class for you.  Great fun, great friendships and great racing is what Northwest Roostertails is about. Come join in the fun…you’ll be glad you did.

CLASSES: Any class with 2 or more boats at an event.

RC boat racing in the South Puget Sound

The Puget Sound Model Boat Club(PSMBC) was started in1969 to provide a model boat club for radio control model boat enthusiasts living in the South Sound area. In 1972, the PSMBC gained access to Lake Waughop at Ft. Steilacoom Park in Lakewood when the State of Washington leased what had previously been a farm tended by residents of Western State Hospital to Pierce County. Radio controlled model boat racing was the first organized activity in Ft. Steilacoom Park. Today Ft. Steilacoom is the largest regional park in Pierce County with baseball and soccer fields, a dog park, a RC flying area, covered shelters, and hiking trails.

The PSMBC hosts 4 District 8 Points races and club races that include the Pumpkin Scrambles in October, Turkey Shoot in November, and Frostbite Follies in December. Members of the PSMBC have won numerous national championships, set records in heat racing, 1/16 mile straightaway, and 2 lap oval.
