Mini-SE October 27-29 2017
 
All the usual rules and old things apply:
The rough format:

Friday night drag strip
Saturday dyno day
Saturday night party night (but since the dyno is at the same location, yay... I think)
Sunday cleanup and GTFO

All at the new old location of heebspeed HQ, montgomery Alabama.

So, short notice on this one, the new (probably) permanent dates for SE-future shall be in the spring (mid/late spring, will take vote later).

The Real rules(tm):
1) this used to be the no hoopty rule. It still is. If you don't think your car will make it, beg/borrow/steal/rent something reliable, esp if you lack the self control to not engage in shenanigans.
2) bring spare parts for things you think you'll need, and even maybe a few you can't live without. if this includes an engine, see #1
3) sleeping stuff, toiletries, clothes for I'd say 4-5 days just in case (no, I don't want you here this long, but if you get dirty, the ditch out front doesn't always have clean warshin' water in it)
4) money. bring enough for food, gas, shens, and emergencies. We have a pull a part in town, but good luck with them having anything you'd actually need.

Camping may be permitted, weather depending. usually october is pretty good to us, we have space for the party regardless (Carport/ workshop), but you may find it better to get a hotel room at one of the ~10 minute away hotels by the interstate.

I'm in.

Not sure if Mrs. Marv and lil Marv will come but I'll be there. I'd definitely like/pay for some dyno time too.

propav8r 07-18-2017 04:30 PM

In. Probably solo. If there's room to hang a hammock somewhere, I'll just do that. Might bring the bike or the new wagon depending on hoopty status.

mikep 07-18-2017 10:59 PM

Tentatively in with a hotel room.

doucheNozzle 07-18-2017 11:48 PM

I'll work up the dyno stuff a little closer to the date. you can also skip over whenever, just a bit of heads up.

Texas240 07-20-2017 08:45 PM

I would love to be there but this is 2 weeks before my wedding. I'll see what magic I can pull.

linuxman51 07-20-2017 11:17 PM

no worries, there will be one in the spring (And that will be the case going forward)

saw that. you hit it with your purse yet? lol. iirc it's an m8 bolt about the same length as the oil pan bolts, maybe 5mm longer.

tequila_gundam_no_chaser 07-21-2017 11:54 AM

Money may be tight by then, but otherwise, I'm there. I'll have some sort of bastardized volvo with me.

1Smooth84 08-26-2017 06:19 PM

I'm gonna try to make this one, if not I will definitely make the spring fling!!!!

slow240 09-29-2017 05:06 AM

wish I could make it to this, but its looking like this project at work is going to keep me on nights (7/12s) until Christmas time :-(

maybe the spring one can happen for me, been wanting to make it down to Montgomery for years

mikep 09-29-2017 09:52 AM

I'm out for this one too.

propav8r 10-06-2017 10:26 AM

linuxman51 10-06-2017 12:57 PM

one would have to come down here and work in the salt mines with me for that ;)

Texas240 10-06-2017 10:25 PM

I would be in but a big 360 view Facebook commercial came through that I'm hold for right now. Catch the next one

Marvelous3 10-09-2017 07:29 PM

Still in it to win it.

cosbySweater 10-10-2017 06:11 PM
