Hi Everyone

Mark your calendars... The Spring Northeast Tech Daze Event will be Saturday May 2nd, 2009.

With the UNrally in August, it will be a good time to ensure your bikes are in peak shape. We don't have any plans yet for a first responder class this spring but people are welcome to spend the night before and after as usual.

This year, I'm using the Evenbrite registration site to track everything. This is the same site we are using for the UNrally. You can register here...


The usual offers apply...

- Event formally starts at 7:30am and goes until the last person says goodbye the following night.

- Address is 47 Talcott Range East Granby, CT 06026

- Phone Number is 860-844-8895

- Donation suggested is generally $20.

- Breakfast Lunch Dinner and Drinks provided

- S.O.'s are very much welcome to join in.

- Anyone is welcome to stay at the house Friday and/or Saturday nights.

- Guest room available for the first couple that reserves it.

- Plenty of sleeping bag space in the house

Yes... Several options for staying with us or in the area:

1. Tons of level tenting space in the yard.
2. Standard airport strip hotels about 9 miles east of the house:

Doubletree Hotel
Homewood Suites
Days Inn

3. Plus some much nicer places to stay about 10 miles southwest of the house... Real New England stuff.

Dutch Iris Inn
Simsbury Inn
Simsbury 1820 House
The Linden House
Merrywood Inn

- By now, we've developed a good local group of Guru's so Newbies are encouraged to attend and watch, or even better, dig into projects on their own comfortable that someone is there to help.

- Three bay garage plus 3 or 4 party tents in the driveway in case of inclement weather.

- Pretty much any tool you could possibly need including a bike lift, a Splinal Tap Tool.

- You are welcome to have parts and fluids delivered directly to the house and I will hold onto them for you. I will also be able to recycle all the old stuff as well.

- We have a tire changing station and balancer if interested.

- Generally we do a free-for-all format and I've seen a couple dozen different projects going on simultaneously.


The event continues to be a hit with everyone and we generally draw about 40 bikes and over 50 people from 9 states. Suzanne and I always have a great time getting to meet the newcomers and seeing old friends too.

Here are links to the past three event tales:

May 2008

April 2007

June 2006

Last year, Zep also made a YouTube movie of the 2008 event. The first half is stop action of garage/driveway and then there is nice footage of people working on the bikes, changing tires, and the ever present rubber chicken.

We will use this thread to track who's interested and what your project plans are. But, remember to register with the evenbrite site.


Click Here Now to Register for May 2009


Cheers!

Paul & Suzanne

I'll be there. Not sure yet if I'll have anything to wrench but I'm certainly up for helping others in need of valve adjustments, tupperware removals, fuel pump changes, any number of other things...

Looks like Cindy and I will be there for this one. PM me if you need me to bring anything although, as I remember, you didn't seem to need anything.

We're heading to Tennessee at the end of the month so I need to get things in order. I led a group of riders north last Sunday so my bike may still need a good cleaning by then grin

I can't imagine not attending. I'm thinkin' HID headlamp. But I'd prefer doing it side by side someone who actually knows what they're doing? Anyone?

Thanks for posting this, Paul. I needed to know what date it is going to rain so I can fertilize my lawn grin

RANT Follows grin

Ouch!!! You know AJ... just because it seems to rain EVERY time I host a tech day doesn't mean it is GOING to rain every time I host a tech day... As I recall there was one time where the temperatures were freezing and the winds were gusting significantly... I don't recall any rain that day! Oh, and lets not forget the time when Jamie and Leslie were here from San Diego... Every time Leslie came outside to visit, the clouds would part and the sun started shining through. So there!!!

RANT Over grin





NOTE TO SELF: Put fertilizer down on lawn May 1st.
