Dunetoberfest- [dune-tober-fest] Origin- A name created on the web in 2007 to represent a name, place, and time for a gathering in the desert near Yuma Arizona. Definition- A gathering in the desert of men and women with one common interest….. spending time in the desert with friends and family and driving R/C cars in what could be argued the best possible location on earth.
I have been attending Dunetoberfest since 2007 and its my favorite event of the year. Because I get to leave my desk for several days and just go out and get dirty and play in the sand. Every year I make the trip its been with Jeff from Craftwerks-RC. This year was the first time we actually camped out on location in the desert. We had the pleasure of breaking in the “new guys” from TeamChase and SkoPod for their first time ever at Dunetoberfest.
This year we saw a great turnout like always. Many of the same old faces and many new ones. Most everyone who attended are already talking about coming back for 2011 so keep your eyes on LSN for up to date news. We also hope to have some quest bloggers who will give us pre-dunetoberfest advice and tips.
Looking forward to seeing you all next year!
