Smile Ho5G GTG First of the year 2020 (will this be the last one?)

Once again we are hosting the very first GTG of the new year on New Year's Day, 1/1/2020!
Festivities will start @ 9am-ish and go to 10pm-ish on 1-1-2020.
HO5G rules apply remember if you feel the need to fill the town's coffers with your hard earned cash do so at your own risk by driving DUI or speeding. The chief of police lives 3 doors up from the HO5G and he will be glad to accept your contributions.
A few notes about our GTG format:
#1 – ALL newbie’s:
By newbie’s I mean all of you that we don’t know. Just because you've been here doesn't necessarily mean we know you! You need to ‘check in’ with us and get a name tag. This is our home and we would like to know who’s here!
#2 – Food & beverages: It's not fair to expect the same people to provide the bulk of the food!
Bring items we all share. We provide propane and grill.
#3 – Work
Garage space as always is first come, first served there is a lift list. Big jobs need to be cleared by us first. As always – NO timing belts unless done by a pre-approved (i.e. mrchill, HermTDI) or a veteran approved club member. Those arrangements MUST be made in advance with us & the person doing the work.
Bring the TOOLS and FLUIDS that you'll need for the job! We have a brake bleeder and oil extractor available. Bring containers for your fluids! (We have a relatively shallow well for water so fluid spills are unacceptable.)
ALL WORK IS TO BE COMPLETED BY 10pm
We enjoy opening our home and warm garages to you...all we ask for is a little courtesy and respect in return. As our sign says: BE NICE OR GO AWAY!
Now back to our regularly scheduled GTG - bring your tools, to do lists and a little something to share food/drinkwise!
Bring food, bring drink, bring tools and bring good weather!
The garage will be warm and the lift ready - clear all lift jobs w/ PeterV!
Hope to see you there (I mean here!)
PeterV & Hamsterdiesel
PS - Stay tuned to this post #1 for updated info!

Garage space: Lift #1 Asterisk Passat shocks.

Awesome! I'm local (Seacoast NH) and hoping that I can stop by to meet some local TDI people. I don't plan to do any work but am willing to bring some beers and come say hi if that's ok!

Looking forward to the annual pilgrimage to the House of Five Garages! We'll be bringing the Tesla with Haru, our Shiba Inu.

We still have a few TDI maintenance and performance parts in our collection. I'll see if we can get a list together for anyone who might be interested in buying something. We don't have any TDIs, so it would be great if these parts can find a good home. Stay tuned!

And get better FE. Less rolling resistance. Especially ice.

Not sure if I'm working day after New Years yet, schedule not posted yet. If I could, I'd probably bring the '03...if I did, would anyone want to tear apart my drivers door and fix that switch or whatever that causes doors to lock by themselves after unlocking and not have door light/overhead light when opening drivers door?
