Our History  & Objectives
Info 1

Well, its about time this was re-written as things have changed a lot over the past few years, some good, some not so good. But the objects of our club remain the same
which is to have fun and provide a good show for everyone.


It has been several years now since we broke away from the Bigrigs  and Construction WA club and the reasons that seemed so important back then now seem to be a little insignificant.

To say our members do not have any affiliation with the Big Rigs and Construction WA is no longer accurate as we have members that belong to both clubs and as long as we treat discussions held within each club with the respect and privacy they deserve I for one cant see any issues with that. I certainly hope the other club feels the same way, we are all proud of our clubs and do not wish to do anything to tarnish either
our club or our members reputations.

I sincerely hope that in the future we may be able to interact with each other whether it is doing joint shows held at either club rooms or
even a separate venue it would certainly be an RC model spectacle!

Well, back to our story, as you can see from the statements above we (or most of us) were once members of that club and there was a few differences of opinions on what things to do and how to go about it.

One thing led to another, there was some angry words by people on both sides (myself included) and a group of us decided to resign from the club and go our own way.

Initially, we weren't looking to start a club we just wanted to get out and about in Metro and country WA putting on shows for our various clients and generally having fun with our vehicles which is why we bought them in the first place!

We started out as just a group of people that wanted to have fun and show the world what can be done with these trucks. And boy, did we ever get a response. We were nearly overwhelmed by the level of interest in what we had to offer and what we can do for people.

Due to the almost overwhelming demand for shows and the the ever present need for public liability insurance to cover ourselves and our clientèle we decide we needed to be come a club again.

Hence, the birth of West Coast Remote Control Trucks
became a reality and we have not looked back since!
Plain and simple we have not had the time! Been too busy!

This web site would now be used to advertise our clubs activities whether it be shows we have done or upcoming ones. We definitely have an ever growing number of trucks and trailers and anything else, be it construction equipment and vehicles or buildings for our displays and nowadays just about anything to do with RC models with the main goal being just plain good old fashioned fun!

Our membership is made up of people who want to get out and about showing people what can be done with these model trucks as can be seen on our gallery pages.

So, whether it is a standard prime mover you have or something a bit more quirky that has developed from your own imagination bring it along as the public would love to see it and so would we.

We try to work by the theory that if it looks good to the owner builder, and its what they want, who are we to criticize?
There is no rule that says it has to look like this truck or that truck.
We don't have time for the so called ’ rivet counters ‘ that can turn up in some areas of modeling. It is far more important to have fun!

In the last couple of years we have been busy with our expanding inventory, signing up new members and planning shows so much that this years calendar is just about full up! To the point that we have only had a couple of shows at our clubs base in Kenwick WA, something we are aiming to rectify in the near future.

Our aim is to set a high standard in both our equipment and our people and to provide both a fun and well presented show. We want both the public and the people we are putting the display on for to be happy with our displays and our polite and professional people. To us the public, promoters and participants safety is of paramount importance to us.

We are prepared to travel around the state and possibly interstate (could be interesting) to put on our shows. We bring the show to you all we need is  some space and power, and with the advent of generators in the club power does not become such an issue.

To keep everything legal and safe we have all the appropriate insurance  coverage which covers us wherever we setup a show.

And now, with us becoming an Incorporated club on the 26th of March 2013 we now have a slightly different name. From here on in we
will be known as:
West Coast Remote Control Trucks Inc

While this may not sound like much to most people it will certainly open a lot of avenues to us to develop and expand our ever growing club into areas we have not been able to pursue.

Please check our
calendar page for more information on any of our future events or if you want more information, you can contact any of our Committee members by Email from our Contacts page.

If you have a show whether public, private or charity
where you would like us to attend or if you are interested
in joining us, or just want more information please
 don't hesitate to email us your contact details and we
 will see what we can organize.

Well, I have certainly rambled on enough.
Time to get back to the fun, new models and buildings etc.
to build and new shows to plan.

Hope to see you out there!
