OK, you have your carb primed and we all know you have a good, hot spark. But you're still not sure if you should pull the rope and join. To help you decide if AOMC is right for you, here is a schedule of some of our upcoming events. We sincerely hope you can find an event close to home. Bring the family, we'd love to meet them too.

If you are a member and plan on attending a meet, please bring a friend along!

If you decide to attend one of the meets, please drop the contact person a line to let them know you are coming and also so that they may let you know of any last minute changes.  They would also be delighted to answer any questions you might have concerning the meet or the Club.

23rd Annual Houston Swap Meet

This three day swap meet hosted by long-time member, Louis Rothermel, opens at 9:00AM and closes at 6:00PM each day. This will be the 23rd year that Louis has sponsored this event. Friday morning is primarily for setup, but some dealing starts early. Members arrive at various times throughout the day on Friday. At some point near noon, Louis will order in some local hamburgers for those who want one. At the end of the day, some members usually visit the nearby Jax Grill for dinner and beverages. Saturday is the heart of the meet with swapping starting early. Coffee and donuts are provided upon arrival. An excellent Bar-B-Q lunch will be cartered in around 1:00PM for a $10 per person fee for all you can eat. A business meeting will ensue after lunch. The remainder of the day is for swapping, repairing, or running your motors in the test tank. Most trading has been completed by the end of Saturday. Sunday is mostly a work day for those wishing to take advantage of Louis' shop which includes a lathe, parts washer, bead blaster, drill press, and torch equipment. We usually have several experienced members on duty to help with those stubborn problems. Lunch is usually the remaining Bar-B-Que from Saturday's feast. Swapping is usually light by Sunday and most time is spent visiting and working on motors. Please contact Louis for information on available hotels in the area if a room is deesired. There are several nice hotels within a short distance of the meet.
