Yes, there is/will be an event page. I have 153 photos and the equivalent of about 5000 words worth of reporting put into it so far (and I'm a little over half done). In the past years I wasn't quite so busy with work and whatnot, and I had more time to dedicate to this. Unfortunately the show came at a busy time of the year for me and I have only had an hour or two to put into this each night. If the site redesign had been completed earlier, I would have probably had this done much sooner.

To put it into perspective, magazines have a few weeks lead time to work on an article like this, and a staff of many people to bring the photos, layout and copy all together. Sadly for us, it's just me here, and I am slow!

Sorry for the delays, and yes, it will be up. In fact, if you like sleuthing, you can probably find some of it online already.

They don't make 'em cause not many people want 'em.... that is the only reason..... and the 3-4 people you may race with on a weekly basis don't make up the entire market!!!!

My post was suppose to be humorous

Well that's what you get when you're allways being quick with pics and reports.
People (me also) expect this all the time.
We got used to your standard and quality...
LOL... (it's your own fault )

Futureal, we'll just have to wait a little longer.
Keep up the good work, it's appreciated.

Regards,
Pizza

The Hobby Show coverage is finally, finally done:
http://www.rctech.net/events/chicago2003/index.shtml

I apologize again for the lateness involved. However, I think you'll find that this is the best, most in-depth coverage of this show that you'll find anywhere (at least as far as I can tell).

Next year I'll have things laid out a bit better in advance so I can get straight to the write-up instead of spending two days designing.

All feedback and comments are welcome, of course. Enjoy!

I wish I could make it out, but no such luck. I am hoping for a chance to cover Hobby Visions and RCX next year for R/C Tech, but we'll see!
