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.
