With lots of projects shaping up, and we should group them together and do the ones that are more common so we all can learn while getting things done A) doesn't appear like we will have enough time for a drive, B) need experts/skilled wrench folks to supervise. (I'm as useful as an enthusiastic brick).

Need Voxster's address, Send a private message to The Voxster to confirm here.
In fairness, I must confess I answered Yes, not sure yet, because if it's going to be at my house, I need to check into borrowing the whole back parking lot area for a few hours in the afternoon on Sunday. If that comes back a no from the neighbors, it can't be at my house, but I *think* I can pull it off I will update as I know more.

what do you think?
OK, after talking to the HOA here (in hindsight, I probably should have asked forgiveness rather than permission), it won't be possible for me to commandeer the parking lot for even a few hours of working on cars. "Liability, blah blah blah..."

I just hung up the phone.

No problem.
Thanks Voxster for all your efforts and trying to make it all work for everyone.

If anybody knows of a place to work on cars, please speak up. I know Pedro offered his great garage!! Pedros Garage
Not sure if I would make it though. Florida is too many hours away!

I would guess this event on Saturday, March 29th is postponed for the time being. The date could be moved to another month/day.

Any suggestions are welcomed.

if we are about 6-8 cars, my place is just fine.

anyhting more than that, and you will have to start parking further awayr.

but no probs, as I have no HOA. I have had honda S2000 maint. days at my house, 8+cars, and whenever I have a BBQ, there are like 12+ audis on the street.

I am in Dublin, near the 680/580 interchange, the driveway is slightly slopped, but the street is flat, and you can work on your car in the st.

let me know, and we can make it official.

There's an auto-x in Santa Rosa on the 29th also.

I'll probably go to that. I couln't wait, so I installed the braces already. Though I was looking forward to watching/helping wrench on others' boxsters.

I'll make a definitive decision soon.
