The following message was recently send to North Coast RC Modelers:

This is your personal invitation to the 2012 Northwest Model Hobby Expo, which will take place on February 10-12 at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in Monroe, WA.

As most of you know our organizer, John Foglesong, passed away last fall.  Since then his son, Justin, along with Ron Swift and Sandy DuVall, have been hard at work making sure that the ‘show goes on’, just as John had wanted.  We have an updated website (, which should have everything that everyone needs.  If you don’t see it there, contact us at or call 1-866-NWMHE-44.

We would like to make sure that all of the clubs in the surrounding areas know that they are welcome to join us. The price for a club booth with some kind of interactive/educational aspect for the public is only $40.00 for the weekend. If you would like to have a club booth this year and haven’t already done so, please go to our website and click on the ‘CLUB’ tab at the top and send in the completed form with your payment today.

**ALSO – back this year is the BANQUET, which will be held on Friday, February 10th from 7:30 PM – 11:00 PM at Alfy’s Pizza in Monroe located at 19121 SR 2, Monroe, WA 98272. You’ll want to eat somewhere after the Expo closes anyway, so why not join us at Alfy’s? Only $19.95 per person gets you pizza, spaghetti, a soft drink and salad. It’s quite a deal!

To make your reservation today you can go to the website under the ‘BANQUET’ tab at the top. Youwill need to contact us by email ( or by phone (1-866-NWMHE-44) no later than Friday, February 3rd as we need a headcount to give Alfy’s, so they’ll have plenty of food for everybody.
There are three (3) ways to pay for your reservations: (1) Mail a check for the full amount to NWMHE, PO Box 1591, Duvall, WA 98019; (2) Use the PayPal ‘Pay Now’ button on the BANQUET page of our website ( ) to use your credit card; (3) Pay at the EXPO Registration Booth on Friday, 2/10.

In memory of John Foglesong, we’re collecting photos and stories to share at the banquet. If you have any photos you’d like to share, please send them to Ron Swift at as he is putting together a slideshow to run during the banquet.

Don’t forget to check out the FUNFLY tab on our website and plan on bringing something to fly.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our event.  If you have any questions, please contact us at, or call 1-866-696-4344, or my direct line at 425-765-1546.
