  • GABFEST 2004

    I've had this idea now for some time now and after talking it over with our center owner and getting his OK I'm now throwing to all of you for consideration.
    For a long time we've been talking about our machines and related problems. Now, we have a chance to get together at my center, discuss ideas and see how they work and relate to the machine. I've talked to Ed Fox and James from Enviro bushings and they'll both attend. Who knows there might be a few more vendors too. I've also lined up a tour of BowlEquip's 82-90XL house. There are some interesting things to see on these machines.
    I plan to have this thing sometime in mid June or there about. So now we have a place to meet, vendors to show us their products, machines to see, and a 82-90XL house to tour. All we need is people to attend.
    We're located some 30 miles north of Chicago or about 20 minutes north of O'Hare airport in Mundelein Illinois.
    I would appreciate any feed back or interest in this get together. If there are any questions please post.

    Thanks

            I am expecting my first child in the first week in August also would cost a packet to travel to the us. But i love the idea
            First you clean it
            then you lube it
            then you clean it
            then you adjust it
            then you clean it
            then you clean it some more

                            Doctor...I think you need to post exact times and dates so people can commit , especially if they will be travelling some distance. I would probably start with a date that is convenient with the host center ( especially if they need some work done , they'll have a lot of wrenches on hand to help out --- just kidding )because there is no single date that will be good for everyone. Hey , who knows , maybe this could become a yearly event.Try to get back soon so people can make arraingments. I know I will try to show.
