The Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss

The Rolling Stone Gathers No Moss

In 1992, Roger’s Hobby Center had grown to the point we needed more than the 3,480 square feet than we had at our original address (5658 State). It was a milestone in our history, like when a teenager goes off into the world to ultimately become the person he or she wants to become. It was a rite of passage, confirming that Roger and Darlene were making the right decisions; that the house that Roger built was successful and lasting.

And so it is with great ambivalence that I must announce that Roger’s Hobby Center is again moving. We have reached another milestone, perhaps not as positive as the last, but equally as important.

Spektrum Radios: Why Buy Anything Else? (OPINION)

Spektrum Radios: Why Buy Anything Else? (OPINION)

When Horizon Hobby launched the Spektrum brand back in 2005, it revolutionized the world of radio control. They were the first to come to the table with a 2.4GHz radio system. Though they started out on the car radios, it was the original DX6 that put Spektrum on the map.

Toledo Trip 2011 Wrap-Up, Pt. 1

Toledo Trip 2011 Wrap-Up, Pt. 1

This year's Toledo Bus Trip was destined to be epic from the start. A new webpage was launched, dedicated to the trip, with more information than had ever been available online before. It was the first year we were to accept online payments for the trip. It was the first year we included a stop in Clio for our friends to the south of us. It was the first year that selling out the trip was a legitimate concern. But as with all "firsts", there were many opportunities for road bumps and headaches along the way.

But we didn't hit a single snag. Not one.

I can't put into words just how pleased I am at how smoothly the entire process went. Everyone was either on time or early. We were ahead of schedule at almost every turn. Even with an unprecedented fifty-two passengers on the trip this year, everyone was where they were supposed to be, when they were supposed to be there. I can't thank our passengers enough - you guys make all the hard work that is put into this trip every year completely worth it. Thank you!

But you didn't click on the link to hear me gush about the trip. You want to read about the show. So let's get to it.
