NW Model Hobby Expo a Great Success!

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

For the second year in a row, Goodwinds has displayed at the NorthWest Model Hobby Expo in Monroe, Washington.  This year, the show was held over Valentine’s Day/Presidents’ Day weekend, so Leland made sure to ply the women in the office (myself and our mom) with chocolates beforehand.  There were more vendors than in years past, and more attendees, too. 

Model shows are a great lot of fun for us, because we get to interact with RC and hobby enthusiasts who use our carbon to build awesome machines.  There’s a lot of satisfaction to be had in seeing the pleasure on a person’s face when he dreams of the things he will build with a piece of micro carbon.  Just one of the many reasons we love this business!

In addition to selling as little as one piece of carbon at a time to end-users, we also supply many hobby and RC stores across the country with carbon and fiberglass rods and tubes.  Micro carbon, carbon that is under about .080 inches in diameter, flexible and strong, and often used for pushrods in model planes and other applications, is one of our more popular product categories among hobby enthusiasts, and we are happy to sell it.
