Stony Pond Model Boat Club, Canandaigua, NY
The Stony Pond Model Boat Club was founded in March of 2011. We are an IMPBA club so members need to join theIMPBA. AMA members can run boats on test and tune days, but they must join the IMPBA to participate in the races. To run boats at Stony Pond on non-race days (test and tune) you must join the Stony Pond Model Boat Club.
Stony Pond Membership Info
We are located less than 5 miles from Canandaigua Lake and the city of Canandaigua.
The driver's stand is 10 feet tall with a 16' by 6' platform. This provides an excellent view of the boats when racing. The retrieval boat is always fueled and ready to go. A 1/3 mile IMPBA course is setup at all times. The pond is owned by myself, so no need to please the pond owner. There are neighbors, but not many and only on the NE side. The rest is farm land. There is plenty of room for parking, including RV parking. Overnight camping is welcomed and there are no restrictions on generators.
Fall 2012 Dig Update: After nine days of digging, the pond size now averages 275 feet wide and is 700 feet long.
We are still accepting donations to help pay for the pond enlarging. If you would like to donate, you can send me a check or donate through PayPal by clicking on the donate button.
