Bring the gear, hopefully everyone can have something to play with!

The brakes are a good idea, too.

I will bring my old HWH jack, and the "Mercedes" heater control switch, that is used for the front chassis heat.

I recently picked up a cheap meter that also has a DC (!) amp clamp on it that works great!
This would be awesome

two points of view regarding relining air brakes, much simpler than juice, that's for sure. However most birds have self adjusters so changing the air cans is a bit complicated compared to manual components.

All great ideas! I really don't start scheduling until Sept. You don't even commit to coming until the end of August so .....
We schedule the tech sessions in the morning and try to keep them to an hour. 9-10-and 11 so we can have the afternoons free.
Normally I don't make the final schedule until the night before because ...stuff happens!
We have a White Board near the coffee and Donuts. READ IT EVERY MORNING!
I do not have any vendors lined up this year.
If anyone has any suggestions please let me know.
Email is the best way to communicate.
If you would like to have an hour to present something please let me know (by Email please)
Props work well. You can do sessions in the building or at your coach. Just let me know how I can help.
