Any thoughts for Start up??
« on: March 31, 2016, 09:12:37 PM »
Just been checking the weather and it's looking fairly good for an early start up for the
2016 year. Just checking to see what everyone else thinks. Mid April?? Weather has been nice this week.

I was thinking the same thing tonight.  It was still light driving past JavaWorld around 7:30.  Go for Apr 14th or 21st?

I'm out of town next week, but let me know which date and I'll contact Ron and Colleen to let them know.

Almost ready.

Thought I had it figured out, but apparently not. Noise in Motor, without belt drive on. Not sure what up yet. Need time to dive in. But will show up regardless.

I'll be advertising the 14th, but that shouldn't stop anyone from dropping in tonight if it's nice.  I woke up to snow this morning, not much and not enough to delay my flights, but I won't be back in time to make it down myself.  Insurance going onto the VW this weekend though.

Gentlemen (and ladies!)....start your engines  8)
