*PLEASE NOTE:  NEW MEETING DAY, and MEETING and DINNER PLACES FOR THE ST. LOUIS ADMIRALS R/C MODEL BOAT CLUB


The St. Louis Admirals R/C Model Boat Club is an organization with the sole purpose of sharing and teaching others the joy of radio-controlled model boats. These models have most of the same controls that you would have if you were aboard the full-sized vessel. They include variable forward and reverse speed control, steering and sail control for the sailboats.

We are looking for you if you are interested in radio-controlled electric, steam, sail or solar powered model boats (sorry, no gas or diesel powered boats).

The knowledge that we have acquired from buying, building, installing R/C and operating the finished model are only a few of the assets that we offer to new members of the club.



Club Dues

Club dues are $30 per year. This entitles you to full benefits and equal say in club meetings. We also provide a newsletter (hard copy please add $10.00 to the dues) that will keep you up to date on club activities, new products, etc.

Please contact Membership Director Jane Benefield at 636-447-4016 for information. You can also contact her by Email.
