Hello Insight Fans,
UPDATED 02 MAY 2017
20 May 2017 (Saturday) Optional meet day at Carlisle, PA Fairgrounds: Import/Performance Car Show.
Last year we had several cars entered and grouped in the Honda area on the show field. You can still do this by registering ahead of time. This way you can drive onto the field. Or you can pay $10 general admission. Lots of great import cars from all around the world, as well as a great bunch of kit cars, and cars for sale, along with a sprawling swap meet area.
Meetup at: 0800

Carlisle, PA 17013
Ignore their 1 * rating...LOL, we are there for some hot coffee and the location
21 May 2017 (Sunday) Fall Maintenance Day in Frederick, MD
Meetup at: 0730
The Frederick Coffee Co.
100 N. East Street
Frederick, MD 21701
Frederick Coffee Company & Cafe
This is a really cool coffee shop with great sandwiches and pastries.
This is a great opportunity to meet with other Insight Fans, learn more about your car, get some minor maintenance done, help other owners with their Insight issues, and have a great time doing it.
The location is beautiful historic Frederick, Maryland. It is about an hour north of Washington, DC.
The venue is at a member's garage, with plenty of parking, lift, compressed air, and tools.
Last year we had about a dozen or so Insights, and it was very productive day: we were able to do several transmission fluid changes, oil changes, a set of tie rods, under body repairs of panels, a harness install (or two?), tire rotations, headlight buffing, A/C recharge, dash trip button swap, and about 10 or so rear rubber cargo mats were also made...I'm probably forgetting some.
We will again be spoiled by Doug's grille magic!!!! Last year he provided a superb cooked out meal.
We will need a head count ahead of time to help with meal planning. (Last year we pitched in at the end of the meet to help the host defray the expense...Let's try to do the same this year.) Not charging a "registration" or "admission fee" for the Maintenance Day is a bonus...but please don't expect others to pay for your meal, even if they are nice enough to be cooking for you! THANK YOU ALL!!!)
Please bring: All your parts, fluids, gaskets, special tools, or parts you want to offer up for sale... CONTACT "SAMWICHSE" for sign up for the lift schedule, so we can plan to fit everyone's desired work into the schedule. We will "assist" as best we can, but I don't think any of us are ASE certified mechanics, so please discuss your reasonable desires with Sam if you can't do your own work.
We will need a head count ahead of time to help with meal planning.
There will be a liability waiver to be signed by all attendees, as this is not a commercial operations, it is a private gathering, at a member's property.
PLEASE WEAR CLOSED-TOE SHOES! No sandals.
Bring a folding chair.
Bring your helpful, selfless, positive attitude, as you always do!
We are all excited to be able to be part of another great event in the Mid-Atlantic region, and looking forward to another tremendous time.

Hope to see all of you there!
