April Mid Atlantic GTG! Bring Yo Bad Self!

Hey guys, time for a Spring Mid Atlantic and beyond GTG! We had one at my house this past August and had a good time. This one will be again at my house in Sterling, VA on April 26, 2008. We will kick things off around noon and go until the last one drops! Just bring your favorite beverage and I'll supply the food. I'll be posting the menu shortly. Please post if you're coming so I can get a head count. Also, PM me for my address. Thanks and hope to see you all here!

I've got a full schedule and will be in CA off and on until the GTG. Let's start getting a head count together so I can get the menu planned. Thanks

You guys are good at having these on auction days. How can I buy the 190 or the 380 SL if I can't attend? Count me in. There's another auction coming up with a 300SE in it anyways.
The SL is not going to be for sale, he's just storing it.. Crap.

I think this time I'll bring some of those "Hi, my name is . . ." stickers, just in case I'm not the only one in the crowd who's geezing and can't remember names well. I'll bring some dessert-type items, too.

Mistress, I still want that ride in the SL though

I think the nametags are a good idea, since this'll be my first event.

I got the 280c up and running this weekend with a new battery. Only have some minor issues now but I'll talk with John about those.

Like the cooling fan hitting the AC compressor at higher RPMs, the need of a new airfilter (not sure where to get one, non currently listed on e-bay), and the need of a spare tire&wheel.

I look forward to meeting you, Nathan. I'll try to remember those name tags.
