Atlanta miniz club has been around for ~ 7 years. it started small in 1 persons basement. grew 400% when in a hobby shop for 1 year. (the hobby shop closed/retired). Since then numbers have reduced every season running in private locations.

How do the other clubs around the US/world promote for new members?
Right now we promote by word of mouth/ this forum only.

I know how you feel. We have gone through the same up and down pattern. I say check and see if you have a local RC forum and post on their about your races.

We just hooked up with the guys from UtahRC and they didn't even know there was a mini-z club in Utah until one of them found my website.

it's a start and good luck.

Talk to hobby shop guys about racing. They usually know where the larger scales race and you ca post ads or visit
