Happy Holidays everyone,
Home from an amazing week at the 10th running of the IIC. Hard to believe it has been 10 years. As Charlie coined the phrase " The Decade Edition" A Decade of racing on the Strip. Over 400 entries and if we did not close registration a couple of weeks before the event who knows how many entries would have come in. Bigger is not always better!
It takes 3 parts to make the IIC a success and all 3 of these parts have to work hand in hand to make a great experience. First it is our team. I cant thank them enough for their hard work. Boomer, Kraig, JT, Charlie, Walt, Jodi, Kurt, Pat, Everett, Johnson, Edgar, Danny, Scott, Mark, Gus, Vaughn, Lorie and Suzy, These guys and gals put in long long days to make sure everything clicks just right. I appreciate their dedication and words cannot express my gratitude to them. Garrett from 702 Raceway, you have also been a tremendous help through the years and your support before, during and after is a asset to the team.
Part 2 is the sponsors. I have said it for many years at all our events. I am so proud and honored that the industry embraces our events and gives us support to make something special for the industry. The trust they give to us to produce a world class quality event is something we don't take for granted.
Here is a list of all our sponsors who made the IIC possible.Thank you goes to TEKIN for being our Title Sponsor, They believe in what we are doing and have supported us for many years. GRAVITY RC, TAMIYA, TUNING HAUS, ORCA, ARC, HOBBYWING, HOBBICO, PROTOFORM, CRC, JACO, BSR, SXT, RC TRIM, THUNDER POWER, EA MOTORSPORTS, REEDY, APEX RC, TOP, HOT BODIES, MUCH MORE, FUTABA, TEAM DURANGO, TRAK POWER, F1 RC LAB, SPEED MERCHANT, DISCOUNT RC STORE, SAVOX, TEAM POWERS, AWESOMATIX, XENON, RC AMERICA, VIPER, LEESPEED, SWEEP, TIMEZONE HOBBIES.COM, R1 WURKS.COM, TQ WIRE, AVID, PROLEVEL, PRO SPEC. P 1 BRAND.COM, AMP DRAW HOBBIES, BOOMERZ WORLD.COM, RC SCORING PRO, LIVERC.COM.
All those companies believed in the IIC and our goal to give the Sponsors, racers and the industry the best event we can and I cant thank them enough for their support.
Part 3 are the racers and families who joined us again this year. It is very humbling to me that so many racers will take time from their busy lives to join us for the IIC. We had 20 people who have attended all 10 years of the IIC. And double that who have attended 9 years and only missed 1. Of course our goal is to give everyone the best experience they can have at an RC Race and we hope with all the meals, drinks, exact time schedule for each day and wonderful awards. No matter if you finished first or last, you walked away having a good time and hopefully making some new friends.
We are all very fortunate to be involved in such a great hobby and even if it is only once a year we get to reconnect with the friends we have made from around the world, that is truly what this hobby is all about. Friendship and fun.
NEXT YEARS DATES ARE PLANNED FOR OCT 19-24 2015.
Thank you everyone for a remarkable and memorable 10 years.

As spring is here, I wanted to give everyone an update on what will be our 10 Year Anniversary of the International Indoor Championships - IIC. Hard to believe it has been 10 years since we started this crazy idea we had to bring an RC event to the Strip in Las Vegas. The dates are set and this year’s IIC is immediately after the World Championships and talking to many of the top drivers over the past few months it sounds like many will be joining us in Vegas for the IIC.
Dates for the 2014 IIC are: OCTOBER 13-18 2014.
You can now call the Riviera Hotel and Casino at 800-634-6753 and mention group code SIIC14. This will give you the special IIC rate of $60 on weekdays and $92 on weekends. Make sure you use our code because it waives the mandatory resort fee of $15 per day and our code gives you free internet in your hotel room.
Some great things planned for this year’s event. We are going to expand Spec GT Concourse event that we hold during our Sponsor Meet and Greet on Tuesday night with FREE FOOD AND BEER! They have renovated the Top of the Riviera where we hold our Drivers meeting Buffet, so we should have even a nicer time on Monday night.
So great things are in store for the 10th running of the IIC and we hope everyone can make plans to join us in Vegas to race on the rug and share in the fun we have at the IIC.
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to email me at email@example.com
2014 will be the International Indoor Championships 10 year anniversary!!! Over the past 10 years we have crowned many champions and we will be crowning more for 2014.
Entries will go live on June 9th, with the official time yet to be confirmed. We expect this year to sell out quickly! If you plan to join us set that date and plan to enter that night. We look forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas for year 10 of the IIC!
As we get closer to the registration date we will update the classes, hotel information and rules as needed.
