HobbyTown Reading’s sixth Hobby Connection Day will be held on Saturday, September 12, 2009.
The day will again be filled with activities inside and outside of the store. Dennis “Tiny” Haag will be conducting Estes Rocket building and launch classes in the parking lot and adjoining lot. Last year, ninety-six rockets were built and launched. Bryan Young of SCX will again be on hand demonstrating SCX’s digital slot car systems and an RC race program will be held on our dirt track.
In store activities will include Klutz face painting or other Klutz activity, Lego make n take and Revell make n take where participants will be able to build a space shuttle and a Corvette coupe model. Reading Royals’ Slapshot and Zeppy the clown will be here to keep visitors entertained.
WEEU 830 AM Radio will broadcast live from the parking lot from 8:00 A.M. until 1:00 P.M. Jack Holcomb, Nick Lawrence and Mike Faust are scheduled to appear.
Concessions will be provided by Boy Scout Troop 160 and a moon bounce will also be provided by Ozzy’s Sports Fun Center.
There will be drawings for merchandise and children will be provided with balloons, balsa gliders, aeroprops and more.
Our Hobby Connection Day grows each year and we continue to receive numerous comments from parents about the day and what it means to their children.
Make plans now to attend this year’s event.
