It's pretty unlikely I'd be able to make the meeting next week although we've traditionally done a Ham & Eggs Tune Up day in April before CM.
Thanks guys! I was hoping to check them before the Trail Leader Training Run March 15.

I know you recently moved Dave. Could you PM me your new addy and maybe I can arrange it with you to swing by with the rig after work one day. Heck I've been driving it everyday this week because of the snow up here.
