TGN attended this event in beautiful Southern California on Saturday December 4th. The event was put on completely for the benefit of the US Marines Toys for Tots foundation. TheTeamChase family welcomed all RC fans who wanted to come to their private 1/4 mile Large Scale track in Perris California. With only one condition, they bring at least one toy per person. The Chase family not only opened their amazing compound to the public but they also sprung for dinner for EVERY person in attendance. Was it Pizza? Nope, not the Chase family….how about In-N-Out….that’s right, Double Doubles for everyone!
HPI was kind enough to bring out for the first time ever in public the new HPI baja 5SC truck. Attendees were very excited as they huddled around the new tuck had lots of questions for HPI’s John Shultz. Thank you HPI for bringing out this new truck, it looks and runs amazing.
With over 100 attendees and many sponsor mailing donations they had to bring a u-haul to carry off all the great toys. Several sponsors showed up in person to meet and greet their customers which is always a treat for everyone. There were dozens of sponsored items given away at the event and everyone was able to come away with some sort of cool gadget for their baja.
TGN had set up a raffle for a HPI baja 5b RTR kit that was to be built on location by volunteers, including a custom paint job done right on location. Large scale fans from all over the world donated for the chance to win this great prize. Sponsors included SkoPod, Craftwerks-RC, DDM, TeamChase, TeamFastEddy, Simple Baja Stand, Custom Street Toyz, X-Treme Clean and HPI. Many people helped with their time or with needed parts and we would like to give a special thanks to the main 3 guys who helped build our giveaway baja- JoJo, Carlos and Jeff. You guys were machines! TGN would also like to thank all the raffle participants whohelped raise $1,500 for the Toys for Toys Foundation. The lucky winner of the HPI baja 5b was Jon-Cris Paguia and was on location to hear his name called. I dont think we could have pulled a name of a more excited and appreciative person. Congrats Jon-Chris and most of all HAVE FUN!
I can’t thank TeamChase enough for putting on such an amazing event for such a great cause. Your family and friends worked very hard to make this all come together and it really is something to be very proud of. Great work and I sure hope to be back doing it all over again next year.
Here is some media for you all to enjoy.
