Cohutta, Georgia - September 16th to 18th, 2022

SUBFEST 2022 will be third annual, tremendously successful RC submarine event.

It is an opportunity for RC submarine enthusiasts to gather together to run their boats, see each other's projects, learn from each other, attend seminars, win prizes, compete against one another, and generally.... have an awesome time.

SUBFEST is not only for sub skippers. Anyone is welcome and there is no better way to "get your feet wet" if you're thinking about getting into the hobby than coming in, talking about subs with experienced owners, and getting your hands on the sticks of a real, working RC submarine.

SUBFEST 2021 will be taking place from Friday, September 16th to Sunday, September 18th, 2022. Events run throughout the day, and the event schedule will be posted as we get closer to the event.

SUBFEST 2022 will be re-visiting the amazing Red Clay Resort in Cohutta Georgia. The facility is absolutely perfect for the event and features crystal clear spring fed water with concrete bottom and shoreline, grassy area surrounds, covered picnic areas, concession stands, washrooms, nearby parking and much more. There is RV parking on-site if you want to set up a motorhome or tent on site (though there is no power/water hookups, so come prepared!).

WHERE do we stay?
SUBFEST 2022 is located approximately half an hour east of the Chatanooga, TN airport, and 20 minutes south of Cleveland, TN. Both cities offer multiple options for hotel accommodations, and staying in east Chatanooga or south Cleveland will cut your commute time down even further. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of options in close proximity to the event, but realistically, you will only be commuting once in the morning and once in the evening, so this isn't a major issue at all. There are food options onsite, so you won't have to leave the resort until you're subbed out (as if that could happen).

WHAT happens at SUBFEST?
SUBFEST 2022 will feature three days of RC submarine action.

  • Unlimited access to the crystal clear waters of the Red Clay Resort's spring-fed pool

  • In-person demonstrations, seminars and Q&A sessions with some of the hobby's most experienced builders

  • Raffle prizes including a FULL RC submarine builder's package ($1500 value!)

  • T-shirts for all submarine skippers

  • Contests for navigation, engineering and scale

  • Skipper networking

  • Evening on-site dinners (let's hope for the same amazing seafood boil as last year!)
