Arrow West Michigan Fall TDI GTG - October 27, 2018

West Michigan Fall TDI GTG - Oct. 2018

Come enjoy the Fall Colors in West Michigan, while socializing and light wrenching on TDI's w/ good TDI folk!

Saturday, October 27th, 2018 - (6th Annual)
9am to 7pm

11877 Ritchie Ave NE, Cedar Springs, MI 49319

We will have a good outdoor fire going all day long, some form of chili in the pot, and some jalapeno swiss dogs on the grill.

Bring your own beverages, and if you'd like to bring a dish or snack to share, feel free.

NEW NEWS HERE - there will be a brand new factory ALH engine for sale at my GTG - might be the last one in existence/ on the planet!

Might be a Museum piece someday!


General Housekeeping Note:

When you arrive, PLEASE make an attempt to park in my property first, and not out on the road, we will save parking along the road as a last resort, if the site fills up.

I have opened up the backyard, so we have a parking "annex" now too.


The South drive into my property will be the entrance, while the North drive will be designated as the exit. Additionally, my exit (14 Mile Rd, or exit 101) is closed coming from the south on US-131, you'll have to get off at either exit 97 (10 Mile Rd), or exit 104 (17 Mile Rd) - the southbound US-131 ramp from 14 Mile Rd is open when travelling home.
Thank-you,
Kirk


Key/Keyfob guy WILL be in attendance -
Chris Tuttle (aka keyguy) will be at the GTG from 10am to 1pm (approx.), unless he's stacked up with more keys/keyfobs, then he will stay longer.

He can :
- cut new key blades
- provide new keys to cut
- provide new keyfobs
- program keys to match your car

I've started a list of who may be interested in this service:
1) MichiganBret (MK4)
2) PakProtector (Doug) - extra keyfob, plus one valet key (MK4)

3) Carl Otte (2001 Golf) - extra keyfob (MK4)
4) David Baldwin (2002 Beetle)
5) Ed Ritsema (2003 Jetta)
6) Ellis Vee (2003 Jetta - one new blade, fob reprogram, and one valet key
7) Evan (2000 - one blade, fog program, and one valet key
8) crdouger (doug) - 2006 - has key blade already, need cut
9) Kevin Redmond - 2000 Beetle - new fob and key cut/programmed

TUNE NOTE: - Jeff Robertson from Rocketchips has committed to this date, so let the TUNE sign ups begin.

1) jmodge - asv delete to exist ALH tune
2) TDIjettaz - tune 14 JSW (6M)
3) rbre2025 - RC2 + egr and immob delete - 2000 ALH

8) regprid - RC2+ egr & immob delete - 2001 ALH
9) Brett - RC2+ egr and immob delete - 2001 ALH
10) Ed Ritsema - RC2+ egr and immob delete _ 2003 ALH
11) Kevin Brubaker - RC2 - 2006 Golf (BEW)

13) Karl Walters - RC2 - 1998 AHU (no many of these still alive and kickin these days!)
14) Jay Rankin - RC1.5 - 2003 auto ALH
15) Whitewasp17 - RC3? (ALH)
16) firefighter9780 - RC2 (ALH)

USED PARTS NOTE: I believe My granddaughters will be manning my stash of parts (mostly MK4), and I'll find out Chris Thompson (username CTTDI) will be here (as he has been in the past) - feel free to bring some of your own to sell/swap/trade.

Sounds nice, I can get some hunting in beforehand, maybe bring some speedbeef over. I would like to get the ASV deleted on my RC2+ if Jeff would do that. Keyfob with key sounds interesting, Mine is screwed and glued(came to me broken off).

I can NOT believe that I already have gotten myself scheduled to be out of town (in Dayton, OH, much less) on that very weekend! Was hoping to celebrate a half-million miles on my variant and do my fifth timing belt. Kirk, I guess that will free you up to work on some sort of illegal TDI.

Hey Kirk, long time no see. Hope all is well and thank you for all that you do for the TDI community.

Finally, after 8 years of going to school on and off while working full-time, I will have time to come to your GTG! Please put me down for a tune to my '14 JSW, which I recently bought. I will go with whatever Jeff recommends. Can't wait until then!

Looking forward to it, Kirk. I finally got the MB back from Matt and it's running pretty sweet. Now for the bodywork on my '03 Jetta. I hope to have it done by then so I can bring it instead of the MB. See ya around.
