Per Chris Wood (ARB Western Rep)

I wanted to officially offer the Rising Sun 4WD Club, May 18th… which is a Friday. These seminars usually get started around 6:00 p.m. and typically go until 8:30 or 9:00… depending on the range of questions. As I mentioned on the phone, the participants will be treated to an insider’s look at the engineering and function of many of our products, with an objective comparison to many other brands. I will be disassembling an Air Locker, an Old Man Emu shock, a high-performance IPF driving light and other components and using them to educate and prepare the guests to make better buying decisions, regardless of which brands of products they are interested in.

Please Welcome Chris with a larger turnout! He's a Toyota and specifically a Cruiser guy daily driving a frame off '87 FJ60 :thumb:

6:30 in the conference room at Stevinson Toyota West. Same Place Rising Sun holds the monthly meetings. :)

I'll be down by Blanding, UT - but I can say that I LOVE my ARB Air Lockers, and Safari Snorkel on the Gnewt. Now, if I could just lay my hands on one of those ARB Refrigerator/Freezers...

I just heard from Chris Wood about this seminar. I'll be there kind of representing Toyota Trails. Chris said they will be supplying pizza and refreshments, so we probably ought to try and get an accurate head count as we get closer to the 18th.

Looking forward to it!

Is this event still happening? If so, has a firm time and location been determined yet?

It's quite timely, since RedChili and I are beginning plans to install an ARB in the rear of my 97 Tacoma (aka Truckwagon).

Cheers!

Thanks for the reminder Tim! I confirmed with Derek about the conference room at Stevinson Toyota West a couple weeks ago.

It's at the same place we hold meetings :D

Non members are more than welcome and this would count as an even if you would like to join.

I'll have a poll for sign up closer to the event. IIRC Chris talked about pizza but I need to firm that up with him.

Dangit, the PMP class I've been trying to attend for about a year is actually going to happen - right through this and even through Friday before Memorial Day.



[EDIT] Woohoo, they bumped back the class. If scheduling (read: my wifely event planner) permits, I will try to be there. Mebbe I'll get an answer to my slow-disengaging front locker with clicky clicky sounds.

Anyway. Everyone try to be there promptly at 6:30.

ARB ill pick up pizza for this night so don't worry bout dinner. Let's give chris a great turn out. I think it will be intersting.

I'll post a poll early next week for an accurate head count to pizza.

Thanks for putting this on! I had a great time poking at parts on the table, and it was good to hear about the rationale for some of the choices ARB makes in designing their products. Learned all sorts of interesting stuff about lockers in general, ARB compressors and bumpers, and the differences between monotube and twin tube shocks.

Also got a tire plug kit in the impromptu raffle! Thanks Chris :D!

Yea, I really wanted to make this seminar, but alas I was forced to entertain myself at the Sand Dunes...;)

Did anyone happen to get a direct email address for Chris? I've got a specific inquiry that I'd like to direct to him (and not the general sales bucket).
