Default 2018 Mid-Atlantic Fall Maintenance Day, Columbia, MD

Event is back on!

Fall maintenance day at York Automotive, 300 S. Main St., Mt Airy MD on Saturday, October 20th, 2018 8:00 am - 5:00 pm. (Main St. consists mostly of old buildings from around the turn of the last century. This building was once a Ford dealership, so the Main St. side was the showroom. The shop is actually on the Hood St. side of the building.)

There are three lifts, so we will want to get some idea early in the day of what each member wants to do on their car. Should be plenty of lifts, just need a bit of scheduling.

Insight events are open to all generation insight owners! Gen 1, 2, and now 3!

It's that time of year again... when summer's dying gasps remind us our AC isn't working so well and that the drab winter comes. But wait! First comes a brightly colored and crisply fresh fall. And the mid-Atlantic region Insight maintenance day! Fluid changes, brake work, and underbody inspections... all the things a motivated person could do to winterize their car. And you could also do them!

Come join the rest of your fellow Insighters for a day of fun and... maintenance!

The donation is $15/person and pizza, morning snacks and water will be provided. Please order parts now (sealants, gaskets, hardware, parts). Tools have been available in the past (and there are impact wrenches there), but it is strongly suggested to BYO.

There will be three lifts and an indoor facility so working on your car is pleasant no matter what's happening outside.

Maintenance day is usually followed up with an evening social at a local brewery or bar and duckpin bowling for the brave at heart.

Sign up sheet for the event is here:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...t?usp=drivesdk

All attendees must:

-Wear long pants, closed-toe shoes, and shirts that are not loose enough to catch on machinery.

-Have a valid driver's license, insurance, and registration for attending cars.

Gonna be there! This Is one of the most fun events of the year and the facility is absolutely fantastic. I vote for dinner at that great place we were at last year. Maybe they will give us a riverside table again. Wonderful evening

I'll try to get registration table organized - if you want me to do that.

Awesome. Wish I could be there, but it is very unlikely.

A G1, G2, and G3 together would make a cool photo.

Yes, this is probably a better place for it

Don't forget to RSVP on the sheet if you're planning to attend!

I'll be there with my red 2000 Insight.

How do we send the $15?

This year I don't know what I'll work on, but I'll have all my tools and such. I'll be excited to help everyone else out with their cars.

My Insight is almost road worthy, so I may have my son drive the Rusty Whale with the tools. (Would love to have Randy's toad setup on the Whale/Insight, but it costs as much as I've put into this thing!)

Will bring the headlight polishing stuff. Happy to help anyone restore their yellow headlights to near new (using sandpaper and thinned spar urethane to seal) if you are willing to help so that we have a chance to chat and get to know each other.

Also interested in discussing Arduino/Pi-based projects to pursue after the meet is over.

We usually just take up donations at the door.

So... I don't see any rules listed about bumping event threads

To reiterate event is open to ALL Insight owners, gen 1, 2, and 3 if you're looking to change your CVT fluid/filter, this is the time to do it!

It is mandatory to RSVP in the first post's spreadsheet so we can plan snacks/food/afterparty accordingly.

I'm part of an Insight group on Facebook. Can I post this in there?
