Default Rat Meet Sept 25-27
Re:: I could use a hand with my car.   

Hey hey,
I have been talking wit ha few of you guys about getting together at my new garage to christen it with some work on my split. Basics include.... Weekend event, plenty of parking, 2 spare bedrooms, plenty of other sleeping space, some sorta cook out (crabs, corn and burgers work?), a keg and installing an air ride system in a split!

Sound like a good time? Then come on down for a day or a few hours or the whole weekend.

My girl wants to hang out with us so I'm trying to plan around her schedual (4 days on, 4 days off) but thats not set in stone.

Possible dates we have so far are the weekend of August 28th, the weekend of September 4th ( labor day so I'm sure that rules that out) or September 11th weekend or September 25th weekend.

Just want to get some idea if people are interested and if so what dates work best.

Also if someone would be willing to bring down a 220 welder that be awsome as my 110 cant handle welding in the rear brackets for the air bags.

Damn, 6 hours, 320 miles each way plus tolls. If I hadn't gotten my hours cut, I'd definatly try to work something out but being cash strapped sucks.

8/28 and 9/25 weekend work for me Brendan
9/6 is Manassas and 9/13 is the second Pittsburgh classic I could probably work around both shows but if you have it on a weekend when nothing else is going on I can put in a full day Saturday and a partial on Sunday. But in any case, I'll try to be in on it and we'll see about getting what you need to do the welding.

I know Andy would probably like to come along and Jay told me you had this posted. He may be interested too. I'm sure Scott will be down for Rat Meat.

Tim, man that's a bummer you can't make it. That'd be cool! But I do understand.

I'm for it but I need to see where I'm at with the camper. Aug. is out for me since I'm trying to bust my butt to get the camper painted & road worthy to get it down here for me to finish it up.

Right then, lets rule out the weekend of 9/6 for sure and I'll see you in Man Asses. By the way, this is open to anyone who wants to come and work or just put some faces to forum names. Oh and addy is 23060 Parsons Road 21620 if you want to get an idea of just where I'm at.

Alright so what weekends work for other people? I can even push it back into October if those weekends will work better for anyone. I'm pretty much wide open and there is more than enough work for me to do around the house before I ever think about getting in the garage.

And Tim, its a shame you can't make it. I totaly understand though as I am unemployed at the moment....

October works too Brendan. The only thing to keep in mind will be Fall Mike Meet but haven't heard anything yet about it so we'll have to wait and see what Mike has to say.

I've got games saturdays through November and they hosed us with a 12:00 noon schedule slot for every weekend so most of my Saturdays all fall just got bent over big time but I'm still in for later in the day. I can bring a 220 stick welder but my mig is 115v. I can bring my crab pot and burner. I did a half bushel and a dozen ears of corn that were the bvest I've had all summer.

You in Chestertown? That's rather close to Kim's place in Dover - in a round about way lol. So what weekends are you looking at? I have kid's football and cheerleading starting Labor day weekend so most of my weekends are out until late October. Not sure there will be a regulary scheduled fall Mike meet as some things may be changing with our car. I will update you all on that in the near future on the East Coast meet thread. (not to worry, its good changes!)

I'll put it in the book. I won't know exactly when I can get down there until we have our final schedule. My conference in Lancaster was cancelled on monday and we may have a pre-season game at a tournament on 8/22 in Middletown, so I may be able to swing down Saturday and hang a little.

Tell Ash congrats again on getting the county job.
That sounds like it will be a pretty sweet gig and get her out and about learning the area. Sure beats the hell out of trekking to Baltimore from the upper shore and should get her some experience and contacts with the State Police Medivac guys. I know she wants to help save lives, those guys are tops and they have a base in Centerville down near you. I think a flight paramedic job with the state police would be sweet if that's what you're into.

Alright, this thread will be popping back up to the top about once a week from here on out. Trying to get a head count for who is coming down. Still need someone with a 220 welder Scott?

So far we have:
1. Me and the lil lady
2. AJ
3. Jay and wife
4. Scott (pending)
5. Andy (pending ride from any of the above)
6. John after football/family stuff
7. JBUG ( pending)
And a few guys local to me

Anyone on this list please get me confirmation ASAP, anyone else who wants to come on by shoot me a PM or post here. Again, family friendly, couples and familys get rooms hree, the rest can sleep on couches floor etc. And also we have 2 dog who are very friendly, if you are allergic or have an aversion to them alternate arangments can be made (my parents place is animal free and just down the road)

I just want to plan on how much food to get, plan for who needs a bed etc.

Time for a bit of an update. We are still on for the 25/26/27 weekend. I have tracked down a welder (thanks scott!). I just found a job last week so crabs will more than likely be replaced with burgers and dogs. I've been talking to a few local guys so we should have a pretty good turn out. Post up here or shoot me a PM if you can join us, I'd really like to start getting a head count.

Good luck with everything, and take a bunch of pic's. :)
