I was wondering the same thing was just out to the Scottsdale area then Sedona, that is some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen.

We were in Sedona about a year and a half ago and my wife found a store she really likes. Its called Rene Taylor Gallery. It cost me close to $3,000.00 to get out of there.

There is a practice pond that the Phoenix guys run at.  Get ahold of Lenny Blake as he can give you more precise info.  There are quite a few guys that test on a regular basis there now.  District races are held at Kiwanis Lake Park in Tempe for Gas/Nitro and Electric Boats race at McKellips Park in Scottsdale.

Lenny Blake?  Is he that really cool, laid back dude(at least until he gets a boat on the water, then he's all business) that is usually seen at the NAMBA NATs?

The 2 place you can run Gas, Nitro & FE are at the Indian School pond, located Hayden Rd & Indian School Rd North West corner in Scottsdale. The other place is the McKellips Pond, located at Hayden Rd & Mckellips Rd North West corner (ablout a block in) Scottsdale. The Kiwanis Lake is only once a year by permit only, some run FE there but no noisy boats. These are the only place that i know of that allow gas boats in the Phx. area.
