Exclamation Sad news, everyone....our Tech Session must wait 'til spring!

I know everyone is fighting finances right now, especially coming into the holidays, so this will come as no great surprise. The Forum won't be able to help out financially as they have in the past, which has paid for some of Roy's travel and some other expenses. Roy needs to finish several big jobs up in Michigan for his customers there before winter gets too horrible, as well as some work on his own vehicles.

With the winter as our lead time, Steve (our shop owner) will be moved into his new place and settled (yes, he's moving again -- long story, but great location!), I'll be able to figure out how we fund our GTG, and we'll have time to get everything in place for a great session sometime in March or April.

Please post suggestions on dates that work for you, and we'll make the spring GTG extra cool!!! Sorry John & I won't see all you guys until spring, but it'll be all the better then!

Sunny

I'm sad to hear it but relieved because I could not make it in Nov and as a new 300TD owner I really wanted to network and maybe have some of my question answered like "Is this normal"

We'll look for you in the spring, Peter.

As for getting questions answered, don't wait for the tech session -- there's lots of folks here on the Forum who either have already answered your question when it was posted by another member, or who'll be happy to help you. The info that's already posted here is invaluable to a new owner.

This actually works for me. I was going to have to miss it.

I'm getting the new wagon cleaned up right now and by spring it should be in top shape!
