Question Looking for crawlers in MD DE VA PA

Used to RC years ago but gave it up until now. Looking to start crawling but lack of fellow drivers was the big reason I ended up leaving before. Any good sites or resources to find fellow crawlers in Maryland and surrounding areas? I've just about exhausted my google options so far. Thanks

I'm in the county, 20 minutes north of Baltimore City. My plan A is to try and pick up a used crawler, rebuild it, and have it on the rocks in the next 2 months. Plan B is settling on a new kit and up and running in the same time. I'll let you know when I'm looking for riders Benny.

No prob. I have "fun runs" at my place every now and then where we play with 1/16 scale r/c tanks that battle with IR systems, crawlers, quadcopters, 1/14 tractor trailers, anything r/c essentially.
I've got a couple acres, workshop, and a fridge full of adult beverages.

Did you try any crawler specific forums like this?
http://www.rccrawler.com/forum/regional/
There are a bunch of clubs out there that are active, there is a big indoor event in Harrisburg PA next weekend.

I have seen RCcrawler.com but didn't notice there was regional forums. This Harrisburg event looks pretty cool. Thanks!

Damn, no immediate plans to be in NOVA. Usually visit around Christmas, then a weekend or 2 in spring/summer. How long you going to be in Herndon?

Hey Wrecker, going to be in Gainesville for Christmas, unfortunately I won't have room for the rigs as we travel to OH after that to visit the in-laws. I'm having a buddy or 2 over to my place in PA this Saturday if your up for a drive? Its about a 2hr door to door from Chantilly. Your welcome to stay the night as well. After night fall we'll probably light a fire and have a couple cold ones. I've got lights for night running as well around my small track.
