    SUBFEST 2023 will be our fourth 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.
    Check out a video of last year's event here:



    Full Skipper Registration offers unlimited access to the venue for operation of RC submarines in the beautiful waters of the Red Clay spring-fed pool, seminars, and competitions. It also provides 10 free tickets for the annual raffle.

    Spectator Registration offers the same benefits, but without the ability to bring your own boat to run, and with no free raffle tickets included (though they are available for purchase at the venue)



    Our awesome SUBFEST 2023 official event t-shirts are available for purchase and will be handed out at the event for anyone pre-purchasing them. We will have a very limited amount of shirts available for purchase at the event, so if you want a shirt to commemorate your time at SUBFEST, I highly recommend purchasing them in advance. Click here to order.


    A huge shout-out and thanks to Steve Hodges for generously donating the venue fees for this year's event. His support will help to make SUBFEST 2023 one of the best ever.

    If you want to help support the event, you can email me to set up a cash donation, or you can also donate submarine-related products to our raffle table. Last year saw thousands of dollars worth of amazing prizes available and we hope to top that this year thanks to people like you! To donate, please fill out the form on the SUBFEST official event page.​

    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.

    WHEN is SUBFEST?
    SUBFEST 2023 will be taking place from Thursday, September 14th to Sunday, September 17th, 2022. Events run throughout the day, and the event schedule will be posted as we get closer to the event.

    WHERE is SUBFEST?
    SUBFEST 2023 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 2023 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.

    We have negotiated an event rate for a block of rooms at the Hampton Inn, Ringgold. Use THIS LINK to book your rooms for SUBFEST! The hotel is in great proximity to the event and features free breakfast and wi-fi.
