SubCom Lonestar is Born!

The announcement and logo (designed by our own Ed Tordahl) were posted in the latest issue of the SubCommittee Report (SCR), so we are, apparently, a real thing now.

A bit of background... through a series of events steered by fate, Ed Tordahl, Steve O'Connell and myself (Bob Martin) all moved to Texas within months of each other, relocating from Washington, New York and Florida respectively. With our involvement in the SubCommittee, we saw the need for a local area chapter of the group dedicated to Texas, the state being huge and with a very good population of fellow bubble-heads.

Our hope? To root out and organize as many submarine enthusiasts in the state of Texas as possible, get us communicating together easily, schedule and carry out a TON of get-togethers, both in-person and virtually, and generally... create a platform where we can share fellowship and passion for subs.

Our first unofficial "event" took place on December 28th here in The Woodlands at the Creekwood Pool and Pond. The venue is amazing, with clear(ish) water, boardwalks, a pavilion and easy access to the parking lot. Steve, Ed and I took turns running a trio of 1/48 scale boats that I was prepping for shipping to their new owners. We also had the Decasari family join us. John (the middle boy) is well on his way to building his first RC submarine, a 72nd scale Gato, and I have to say he knows more about subs than most of my customers do.

The next get-together is tentatively planned for March 19th at the same venue, to be followed by dinner and drinks at my house, a short 8 minute drive away. Stay tuned for details.

I hope you'll join us on this journey to build out the best RC submarine club in the world. If you have questions, reach out to me at or to Ed at
