Please keep the sweepstakes if its happening after the monsoons. Quite difficult to find time to maiden the models. Last time many of them including me faced the problem!

If anwar sir is busy, I would like to take the responsibility of organizing "RC India 7th Year Sweepstakes"
I will sponsor 10K worth of items purchase at RCHyper to one winner.

Interested LHS can sponsor something to the winners to make this sweepstakes more attractive.
However, Dear LHS
Please note we shall not force the participant to buy some item from our stores for the build. 

Expecting response from anwar sir and my fellow LHS

Thank you sir,

Also, I am flexible to transfer my contribution of 10K to other PARTICIPATING LHS, if the winner wants that way.
For example if LHS X sponsors 10K and the winner want to buy from LHS X, I will transfer my 10K to LHS X so that the winner can shop at one LHS.

However, winner shall note that you can shop only at the participating LHS.

Also, LHS may sponsor some items too if you wish.

I was hoping LHSs would take the initiative. The joy of participating and building is much greater than the prize amount.

Thank you guys!

Great, i thought no one was interested in the sweepstakes this year. Instead of prize money type of competition, a competition where awards are given out will be just as good to initiate participation from members.

Its good to see the LHS'es taking initiative to host such competitions as they have already invested their time and effort for the growth of the hobby and this take it a step further. Thank you Kumaran sir and Satya sir Hats Off

All participating LHS please decide the dates of the competition.I am eager to start build logs just as other members.

Hope to see many builds in the 7th year competition Thumbs Up

Oh great. I will try to build something too. Had one question though, will the judgement be still lottery based? Or would it be done on the basis of quality and innovation of the builds?

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



The first point is this: only 2 of the not-so-old LHS so far (out of a desired 5-6) have agreed to sponsor. Unless more are forthcoming, there would appear to be no contest. RCB & RCD used to be significant contributors earlier.

The painful hard truth is that looking at this forum, it is now purely a place to buy and sell, ask about Customs issues etc. There is very little activity apart from that. Earlier there was an advertisement window, where I had once seen even Hobby King! Now, nothing. Earlier post a build, post a maiden, there would be 50 replies, now nothing much.

RC Modelling is alive and well in India. It's just that it's not happening here.

Many seniors have pointed this out before. And, too many seniors are no more active on the forum.

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



The last 2 sweepstakes were sponsored through advertising. Earlier, the bigger LHS had stepped up, offering attractive prizes. I remember once Gusty sir and Anwar-bhai among others had given personal contributions towards prizes (if I missed anyone else, my apologies)

Truth is: no participation, no modelling activities => no sponsorship

In any case, why do you need a sweepstakes to build?

The cash amount adds up to the motivation & enthu. and encourages to build, complete long pending models.

RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !



All - I have been swamped Sad

What I suggest is that let someone like Iyer sir to drive the sweepstakes this time. I will contribute Rs10K towards prizes, and help out in any way I can.

With Facebook and Whatsapp groups around local fields being active, the activity decline on the forum is inevitable.  But things like contests will put some enthusiasm back. Forums like this will also act as pan-India co-ordination point on the hobby.

Iyer sir ?
