Mid-Ohio-Valley clubs?
Posted by 195X on Wednesday, June 07, 2017 1:57 PM

As the title might suggest, I am in the MOV, in the Marrietta area. While hobby shops in this area are like finding a piece of hay in a needle factory, I like to live optimistically. Therefore I have high hopes there might be a club nearby, I'm thinking 100 miles or less, that would welcome an old modeler, and a new member?

Failing that, maybe there are a few modelers in the area but no club and they would like to start one?

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Thank you for your response Mike. I am more hoping there's a group of modelers just a bit closer. Due to my mother's health, I just wouldn't be comfortable going that far.

Mainly I was hoping for some modelers in the Marrietta Ohio area that get together or want to get together on a regular basis. Like maybe once or twice a month? just to shoot the bull and share ideas.

Unfortunately, there's not much around the Chillicothe area either. I've been going to the Smokestack for 20 plus years. Great hobby shop, cover a lot of different hobbies. It would be nice if there was a decent hobby shop in south central or south eastern Ohio, other than Hobby Lobby.
