With the ever-growing technology of the modern world, family activities seem few and far-between. But there is a way to enjoy family time (or time with friends) while using a minor degree of technology.
Awesome Hobbies located at 322 N. Detroit St. in Warsaw is a new hobby store in town. Their primary outlet is remote controlled car racing. They also sell a variety of arts and crafts kits, R.C. planes, boats, cars, and helicopters, model cars, puzzles, board games, and more. The store has aisles with the merchandise, as well as an expansive R.C. car track. Races are held every weekend, and you can come in and play on the track at all times for a small fee. If you don’t have your own car, you can buy or rent one.
R.C. racing is a great activity for all ages. Cars come in all styles, shapes and sizes. You can personalize a car with colored parts, custom “body” designs and patterns, and other changes. Cars that aren’t super-enhanced can reach speeds of up to 70 mph. There are electric and “nitro” (gas) cars. Nitro cars are faster, but are also harder to control and more expensive. No matter what type or style car you choose, R.C. racing is great fun for everyone.
The store is open every day but Tuesday, and their schedule can be found if you call them at 574-267-7171. They can order special products on request, and get new items every two weeks or so. This place is really family friendly. The owners, Bill and Jamie Norris, will make you feel welcome. So what are you waiting for?
