Sunday, April 26, 2009 @ Noon

Ok everyone seeing how spring is upon us here in the Northeast part of the U.S. we thought (I talked it over with DTroy Tony) that now would be as good of a time as ever to have our annual springtime meet n greet up here in beautiful N.E.P.A. so we could all get together and shoot the proverbial crap and have lunch and whatnot and maybe even hit a local casino right down the road if anyone desires (Sorry Abby NO PETS ALOWED UNLESS WE GIVE YOUR DAD A WHITE STICK WITH RED PAINT ON THE END).

Im going to say that the time is to be 12:00 noon and the location will be the Petro Truck Stops - Location Information - Iron Skillet, Petro:Lube, Travel Stores, Mobil Delvac, Truck Tires, PM Services, Diesel, CAT Scales, Blue Beacon Truck Washes (http://www.petrotruckstops.com/location_detail.sstg?id=57) as it has been for the past few events we have had. Lots of parking and good food for everyone.

I will make a phone call to the manager down there and we can get the back room all to ourselves. Im going to try to put together a list so I have a number to give to the Peter @ The Petro so then know how many to expect. So let me know if youre going to be there even if you are tentative let me know with a yes anyway.

The two things that I ask of everyone is one, try to bring a friend to see what this sickness is all about. And two treat the property at the Petro with respect because not only are we guests of theirs and we want to be welcome back. So we hope to see you all there.

This show isnt only for diesel trucks, but everyone is welcome to bring whatever they drive and come have fun for a few hours.

So we hope to see you all there.

Hey Rob- Do you think Petro management would mind if a guy brought a generator and a compressor and I did my KDP thing on his truck?

Hard to say, I dont think they would have an issue with it. The best thing I could say is bring it and see. We could just tell them that it broke down in the parking lot and you are fixing it.

Rob, you mean the Dakota will be making the appearance this time? That rig is always an attention getter.

Turns out the wife might not be making it, but I am still in regardless

had a great time, it was good to meet some new people. Well i am glad i got my external lubrication system back working on the way home. I lost about a gallon of trans fluid all over the place. Got a hole somewhere in one of the remote cooler lines. at least that side of my truck won't rust for awhile:o. Spent the last 5 miles on the back of a roll back [yuk][yuk][yuk]:(.

Hey Everyone, I just wanted to take a moment and thank everyone that showed up on Sunday to the 2nd annual Meet n greet. I believe it was the best turnout we have ever had, hopefully it will continue to grow as the years go on. I did happen to notice a 2nd gen. Black dually missing from the usual showing of trucks. I was informed that he was chasing tail across the border into Canada. (Abby was mad that Tony wasnt here and she gave up the information as to his location and why he wasnt attending). Anyway thanks again to everyone that attended and I was informed by the manager of the Petro that we are welcome back anytime.
See you all again real soon, Maybe the TS show or Spring Fling.
Rob

P.S.
If you have any pictures please email them to me rbelardi@ha-pa.com .

Nick, you have to save it as a movie file not as a project. When you click file in movie maker, go down untill it says "save movie file". save it to the computer then upload to youtube.

04-27-2009, 06:42 PM
well thanks archer here you guys go, it isnt very long and my kodak camera wouldnt let me import the video onto movie maker but anyway here she goes

When and where is "spring fling?"From the MDTDC site - The Mason-Dixon TDC would like to welcome all members here to our annual Spring Dyno Event/BBQ.This years event will be a 2 day event so we can try and get everyone who desires to dyno onto the "Humbler" and shake off their winter cobwebs.So Here is the info of what,where and when...

What-"2009 Spring Fling....You are remembered for the rules you break.

Where..SGS Performance
901 Range End Road
Dillsburg,PA 17019
(717)-502-0880
SGS Automotive

Cost...$70 for 3 spins with HP/TQ readings

When...Saturday May 30th & Sunday May 31st

The only rules we will have is stack owners will have to drop their flex pipes or allow us to slide the exhaust tubes down over the stacks and dually owners must remove the outside wheels to help keep the show rolling.Also for the dually owners if you would prefer to dyno with a set of 2500 wheels(singles) some of the guys may be able to bring their extras for you to borrow.Tools will be provided to help and other members will be able to help you if needed.Those who desire to do some BOMBing work may use the shop,but,please all we ask is you clean up after yourself and then dyno during the weekends event at some time.We also would like those who attend to please place their trash into the trash bins and not leave it lay all over the upper field.Also we would like those in attendance to not deliberately tear up the grassy field if we receive any bad weather.

There will be no classes as this is a bragging rights,stick your chest out,outlaw style roll.This means all is fair in love and war,you come in,strap up, let the numbers fly and may the best man or woman,Ford-Dodge or Chevy be the top dog.So who can or will lay the smack down and go home with bragging rights.This is also a rain or shine event so we hope to see everyone there.........Andy
