You know, I used to sell at Toledo and then a couple years back they hit me for 2 Align Special Edition T-Rexx's as well as other stuff and the next day when I jumped the Security guards who were still having their coffee about getting the lights turned on so we could see what was going on they got real upset and threatened to send me to jail or kick me out. They absolutely were not doing their job and I told them that. I asked that they be upstairs and walking around after the doors were open and they couldn't see where that might be a deterrent. It was very upsetting and I haven't been back since.

Default Thieves at my R/C club

I recently spoke with one of our P.G.R.C. club officers and was saddened to hear that our R/C club has AGAIN experienced thefts (un specified ) at the club field
Since I have been a member of this club on and off since 1971, one thing sticks in my crawl ,and that being in years past thefts were unthinkable and NOW they are increasing...

Stealing does happen. I used to race boats in Hobart,IN. The CD had 2 props stolen worth at least $135.00 each as they were custom-made. The problem is that the race in held right in the middle of town so plenty of locals show up to watch as it was the only thing the village had as far as any events go. The problem is if if a local grabbed them up as a trinket or another racer as unfortunately his pit area was easily accessible by anyone walking by. We used to use radio impound areas until the 2.4 Gig radios came about.

This Light-Fingered Louie was outed by his former fellow club members as he worked a lot of East-coast swap meets but went further inland to hit the Toledo Show. He's a known face there now but it may continue to happen if a booth doesn't have enough help and are busy with other customers.
