Radio Control Model Boats

About 2 weeks back started mucking around w remote control model/scale boats in and around the North Branch tidal oxbow channel in Mt. Holly. A group of folks are scoping out the impacts: noise, speed, risks, as a tool for involving kids in the Creek (promoting water quality), as possible resource to go back into tidal backwaters w a camera and much more. They are also fun and help w enhanced public access up around Mill Dam. Trash and debris is pointed out to kids and how that mucks w the creek.
