The Marquette RC Boat Club has been in existence for more than 50 years!

The Marquette RC Boat Club is an IMPBA Registered Club, and is the oldest club in the IMPBA.
Our purpose and charter is to further the hobby of Radio-Controlled Model Boating.

We regularly meet at the Midlothian Reservoir in Oak Forest to run our R/C boats and have fun!!  Our pond is open seven days a week for 'Open Water' practice!
Membership in the Marquette RC Boat Club is open to anyone interested in RC boating.  You must be an IMPBA member in order to join the Marquette RC Boat Club.  Membership Applications for each are below.

The Marquette R/C Boat Club sponsors an IMPBA sanctioned R/C Boat Race every year. 

Videos from the 2011 Marquette R/C Boat Club race on August 14th can be found on our facebook group page: and in the videos section below.
