With the promise of high temperatures and possible storms this weekend, many families are looking for creative ways to entertain both young and old indoors. For those looking for excitement and family friendly fun, look no further than Awesome Hobbies located at 322 N. Detroit St., in Warsaw.
Friday night the store featured a Ladies Night promotion for RC enthusiasts and beginners alike. Ladies were able to rent high-performance RC cars at the store and race them around the track. All ages were welcome to attend and free popcorn was provided at the event.
In addition to last night’s Ladies Night event, the store will be featuring an additional opportunity for ladies to race on Friday, Sept. 13, as well as weekend racing for people of all ages.
Boys and girls young and old are also invited to attend the store’s new addition of a racing league. The kids racing league will include 6 week sessions at $15 per week. Racers will be able to attend at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday or Thursday night to compete. Reservation cost for the kids league is $60, which will hold your spot for all 6 weeks.
