 6 Days to Winter Tech!
Only a few more spots available!

Graham Long is opening the doors to Graham's Engineering and Motorsport for a winter tech session again on February 27th.

Those of you who attended last years event were wowed by the shop and by the presentations...and food and goodies provided to all who came.

This year promises to be even better. While many have RSVP'd already, if you are planing on attending, Graham asks that you let him know either by calling him at 908-500-5096 or by email at grahamtheengineer@gmail.com so he can plan for the appropriate amounts of food and seating.

Expect to learn a lot about welding, 3D printers and a lot of other things...so mark your calendars!

Door opens at the shop at 300 Colfax Avenue, Bldg A, Clifton NJ (look for the blue awning and the VRG Winter Tech sign) at 9am and tech sessions begin at 10am.
 
Thompson Time!
