Talking Enter the Father's Day contest HERE and win a Batmobile AutoScale!

We're happy to announce the 2010 "Why My Dad is the Greatest and He Should Get a Cool Batmobile AutoScale for Father's Day" essay contest or "Why I am the Greatest Dad and Should Get a Cool Batmobile AutoScale for Father's Day", just in case your kids can't write an essay yet, or are too busy with homework (or texting) to type.

We know that lots of you are Dads and of course that means that you work hard - and work hard to find time to race! What better way to celebrate Father's Day, than with a nice traditional essay contest?! The best part is that the winner will receive a Batmobile AutoScale, as seen in our Direct listings.

To enter and submit your essay, just post a REPLY HERE TO THIS THREAD. Please limit entries to 500 words (though you won't be disqualified for going a few words over if you really feel that "really, really awesome" describes you better than "really awesome"). Entries must be submitted by midnight (EST) on Wednesday, June 16th. The contest will be judged by staff, and the winner will be announced, of course, on Father's Day (June 20th). This contest is open to all Forum Members all over the world, even if your country isn't celebrating Father's Day on the 20th.

Get creative and have fun! Maybe you get up early to take your kid to hockey practice, or have sat through years of baton swirling recitals, or continue to help your grown up kid with her home improvement projects (like my Dad). The grammar police will not be on duty, so DON'T STRESS!! Take a moment to pat yourself on the back for all that you do, oh, and Happy Father's Day!!!

The weekend is upon us - time to submit your entry into our Father's Day contest.

If writing an "essay" is intimidating we'll happily accept a haiku poem, knock knock joke, fable, limerick - anything family friendly will do!

Ok, I'm going to get the entries rolling, and since I came up with the idea of a haiku poem, I am going to go with that (also, with a 15 month old running around the house, short and sweet is good!!)

Dada I love you
I like to play peek-a-boo
"Where is Samantha?"

Now, I obviously can't win, but now I have set the bar very low, you have something to aim for!

I love Batman so I'll give it a shot.....

Why am I the coolest Dad...... Hmmmm....

According to my sons it's very clear,
That in there hearts I am oh so dear,
We face each day with all the struggle,
Without a chance for a snuggle,
Working so hard and finding some time,
To take us racing it's not a crime,
Mom gets mad when we go out, BUT
Racing Z's it's where it's at......

Dad Your the greatest......

I think my dad is so cool
When he's racing Z's he's no fool
He prefers traction rollin'
to Thursday night bowling
and we race every day after school


How's that...

I have a dad who as the owner of action rc mini speedway in staten island will tell you was really a devoted parent. How would he know you might ask, well my dad would come and pick me up on the other side of the city an hour away every night close to midnight if not later at the track for a year and a half and drive me and emu home, he would support the hobby, he works incredibly hard and does not just hand me money even though he could do that every day, he makes me appreciate the value in things

that is why my dad deserves a reminder of how great a dad he is for the racing and the community should also be thankful for such supportive people

My story revolves on the values my Dad instilled in me and how I am passing them down to my son. Unfortunately my Dad is no longer with us. i was born premature and because of it i have issues w my vision and i endured several operations as a boy in the 60s....Well Batman was my Hero of choice and my Dad took me to the Worlds Fair in 1967 and I got to sit in the Batmobile.....He also bought me the Corgi Batmobile. As I grew up I got better but my Dad worked sometimes 3 jobs and I never got to know him well.
He was a great provider for our family and instilled many values but I dont have many play memories.....
Now lets jumpstart to the present Im a Dad and I work just like my Dad...
(apple doent fall far from the tree) I try to give my son awesome memories and we have been racing RC since he was 5. He has raced all over the northeast at local state and national events. We started racing Kyosho half eights and he got to race against Jeremy Kortz when he was 5. Needless to say we got hooked on Kyosho and bought mini z s....We were also on TV Inside RC did a segment at the Offroad Carpet Mini Nats. The guys who know me know that my sons equipment is better than mine and we share all of our toys. There is one toy I wish I had for me and that is the Batmobile. it touches a soft spot and brings me back to a special time and place.....being it is a Fathers day contest what better way for a Dad to get his childhood dream back.....and create a new memory.....
