Oh it usually covers about anything under car that can be done in reasonable amount of time. Lincoln Tech has lots of lifts so there won't be much competition. Engine oil and filter, gearbox oil, underpanel inspection and repair, brake calipher changes, pad changes, brake line inspections, fuel line inspections - well you get the idea.

Up top, valve adjustments, V-tech screens, spark plugs, EGR plate cleanings(order gaskets ahead of time), ground wires inspection and replacement, etc.

Lincoln Tech in Columbia MD (on Snowden River Parkway ) is a technical training and education facility for HVAC, Culinary, and Automotive Techs. Their auto training institute includes an 18 bay facility with 12 lifts and an adjacent classroom. Absolutely awesome !

There are a couple hotels nearby, and lots of restaurants.

Last year's event had about 20 owners. It was quite a success that included Lincoln Tech inviting us back.

This one is a one day event, starting at 8:00 am and ending in time for Lincoln Tech to able to lock the doors at 3:00 pm. Last year it was followed up with a meal at a nearby establishment with several brews on tap, there may be some discussion about doing the same again this year. Last year, the 2nd day was a visit out to the aviation museum associated with Washington/Dulles airport. An SST, SR-71, Space Shuttle, and much more are housed in the museum.

Thanks Mountain driver and jime for the summary of the event.

Count with me too. I might be able to attend the second day gathering depending on the weather since I have to drive back to Michigan.
